An evening in Bangkok
Bangkok, the city of dreams, the city of life, the city of needs, the city of sins, the city of nights has long been the love of the dark. For a day spent in the “Sin city of Asia” is incomplete without a night spent in its arms. As poetic as it sounds the city dramatically changes itself from traffic on roads to traffic on pavements. The shops inside transforms to sellers outside, the neon lights fill the atmosphere with all colors of sun.
The streets starts blushing with all the naked entertainment that starts flowing, literally. You start your day of fun as the sun starts to set and the dusk gives it’s shade to the life that awaits you. The taxi is the most prominent form of transport but be brave. The money doesn’t concern you but still walk the cheaper path and try the indigenous one-on-one special ride, courtesy of hardy sooty drivers. You will as close to a native as you can on this busty ride.
Go to any place with on the street and brave the food joints you fill content to. Visit a good hearty mall like HBK, if you want electronics, or the big yak and feel glorious of the shops that they have. Never miss a palette of food you feel repelled to because no matter what you perceive there surprises galore.
You can switch to all the place you want. There are night streets where mischievous market crop up at dark and indulge in buying. There are again walking markets specially designed for night travelers like you and they do not disappoint. Wait up on the mode of transport because this isn’t your usual night yet. Go for the small version of rickshaw shimmering with lights and decorated in the most pristine way. Share it, or go separately as a royalty with music thumping in your ears.
You might see some vans starting to accumulate on the hindsight with the most pennant neon blue light of the discos glossing the alcohol decked inside. The vehicles are Volkswagen peace symbol specially modified for disorienting and buzz feeling scenario of local fun. Don’t be attracted still as you have all the time in the world to come back to them.
Drop on foot and start exploring the last of shops near the mall and always care to take the cuisine on the way. Flushed and a little hungry, you must go to the food market and sit outside and try the oh! So popular chowmien with chopstick. The smile on your face will take you further into the night. You have already forgotten the sins you have committed and you are getting ready for the sinful tasks at hand. Enter the Bangkok at its pristine natural famous form. The strip clubs, the girl shows, the private massages, the lap dances, the bars, the movies, the nude theatrics, the parties, the candies, the toy shows, the toy shops. It is all in your list and it’s all to be done.
It would be regretful to go into details of every one of these and let us get that sorted for next time. Enough said, you should have partied so hard amongst these options that you should either be filled with guilt at the end or be tired to hell. Chill at one of those cars parked with neon lights serving their last rounds. You can think of all the things that you have done and all the things you started off with. Go over each and every detail and try to find that one moment where you felt like the kings and queens of the world. That moment my friend is what makes Bangkok the reason for your visit.
