A morning of visiting contemporary Art Galleries and watching gritty urban scenes unfold all around… Bangkok was growing on us.
We found respite in an afternoon riding rented bikes around “The Green Lung” of Bangkok - Bang Krachao. This large, lush island just a short ferry ride south of the main action felt like it could exist a hundred miles from the energetic super-city. Narrow concrete passageways connected various parts of the marshy expanse and local homes on stilts. A beautiful park, lovely cafes and other eclectic attractions await explorers ready to find a bit of an urban escape.
