Welcome to Conversation With Katherine and my podcast Adventure, Bangkok. I recently went on a short trip to Bangkok, Thailand. When I arrived in Bangkok my first impression is did all of the people of the earth come to this city today. Bangkok has ten million people that live in the city and it felt like there were five millions cars on the road. Traffic is horrific and it can literally take you five minutes to go one block. Traffic is also chaotic and I don't know whether to admire or be confused by anyone that does not live there to want to have the driving adventure in the city.
The city is teeming with people and high rise apartments where the elite of Bangkok live. It was explained to me that the reason there are so many cars is most people that work in Bangkok can't afford to live there and they commute for hours. It is also the reason for the many street vendors who supply those with meals that are on the run.
