Shop, eat, take home money

The news sites around the world are blaring a feature by Bangkok-based Eliza Bates of the Associated Press on what a great place Bangkok is to visit.

Budget Bangkok: 15-Cent Trains, $1 Meals
Great Roadside Meals and Bargain-Basement Culture: Enjoying Bangkok on the Cheap

… and so on.Five floors and all you can do is eat and shop

Well, it’s true, really. It’s a great city to visit, and Ms Bates hit the highlights:

  • Excellent place to eat and cheap to boot
  • Some of the best shopping on the planet
  • Really cheap and convenient to get around, although the traffic can make it slow.

This is not one of the news agency’s most hard-hitting investigative pieces, but it’s worth sending along to friends who think Bangkok might be a little exotic for their tastes.
