Bangkok Powers Ahead Despite …. Stuff

BACK in Bangkok for the first time in years and blown away by the change. Sitting 31 floors up at the Millenium Hilton Bangkok, the city stretches away forever, endless highrise filtered in the haze, the mid-distant CBD a cluster of glass towers. More than 10 million people live here now and, stuck in the traffic, it seems like every one of them owns a car. Tourism drives the local economy and it’s on the rebound after the violence earlier this year. Hotels are filling up but rates are still down. Great attitude still and the world’s best service amid the bedlam. Some things never change. More news soon…
