Bangkok is one the most open cities in the world.  Moreover, the Thai customs and warm human traditions makes this nation one of the most sensitive peoples in all Asia.
 
None the less, the city has other reputations as well.  Thus this website is to provide an additional focus in which the city can become an International destination city for families to visit and enjoy as well.
 
This does not mean other aspects of the city will not be covered and the central factor for this are the various sexually transmitted diseases which emerges and have been a main International Health issue.

Photo Essay: Bangkok

Everyone told us Bangkok would be beautiful. Modern. Developed. Great for shopping. The roads would be great. The airport would be fantastic. We rolled our eyes and said, Yeah, yeah, yeah. The image of Bangkok as a third-world city would not be dislodged from our heads.

Until we came out of the walkway leading from our plane and stepped into the airport. With wide eyes, gaping mouths and short breaths, we took it all in. The cleanliness. The modernity. The space. The airiness. The convenience. The air of prosperity. The efficiency at the immigration counter. The orderly baggage claim area. We landed on a Saturday, perhaps it was just the weekend lull. But still.

A ride into the city did nothing to dispel any of these initial reactions. The roads were great. The buildings were well-maintained. The glass facades of the offices and malls shone with brilliance. It was like driving in some European city.

There was, however, plenty of evidence that we were, in fact, in Thailand.
