For many people Bangkok is a tough city to love. I like big cities so I always enjoy coming back, and for those who don’t like it I have long since given up defending the city. In fact I’ve given up defending any city I like that someone else hates. It’s a waste of energy and it is not my job to convert those who do not have the same taste.
I agree that Bangkok is a mess of a city, but everywhere you look there is always some interesting detail amidst the drab, water stained, concrete blocks. A case in point is the Holiday Inn hotel in Silom. These are the windows on the building facing Surasak Road. I also used this building for my daily Instagram photo.
