Why I love living in Bangkok
Why I love living in Bangkok
All the amazing food, and the option to have it delivered to your doorstep at any time of day! Also, as a parent - the opportunity to get help in the house and with child care which allows for more flexibility in both work and social life. Last but not least; proximity to some great travel destinations (when we're allowed to do that again).
I love that it's so easy to jump on a plane and explore Thailand and the rest of Southeast Asia.
Bangkok is a city full of vibrancy, energy, and life. It's a city that is constantly evolving.
Bangkok is an amazing city! There's great food - from street food, local treats to world-class Michelin star restaurants. The variety of activites is amazing - bars, nightlife, global artists performing in concerts, to the best islands and beaches you can find, and plenty of scuba diving.
Pretty central for travel and well connected to countries in the region. Love the cultural side of the city there is always something new happening in the art world with it being a perfect blend of local and international works.
I like that you can tailor your experience to what your interest and price point are. If you want to save you can eat amazing street food and find really affordable housing, or you can indulge in chef tastings at a Michelin Star restaurant. You can immerse yourself in the local culture and also find very expat centered activities and communities that feel like home.
Spending no more than $20 for a full night out (supper included), and then taking a taxi home at 4am for $2. High fun low stakes.
Surrounded by super smart people, working from the heart of Bangkok, makes this the most exciting job I've had.
