Learning the Sky Train
The last couple of days have been pretty exciting learning how to use the BTS lines. Probably not that exciting to anyone else but it was an incredible experience for me, a Sky Train Newbie. The system used in Bangkok is so advanced and convenient for what I thought was a third world country. It is definitely the fastest and most efficient way to travel through most of Bangkok.
It was incredibly invigorating not knowing anything and learning everything for the first time. Although I must of looked like a stupid foreigner to the locals, I enjoyed every moment of it. Getting stuck at the gate, having to figure out why and than actually being able to traverse most of Bangkok all within the hour was an amazing feeling.
The Bangkok skyline is truly amazing. Especially at night time traveling through areas such as Siam and Asok. The large glass buildings, mixed with the lights of vehicles and decorative lighting was incredible. Being somewhat sheltered in a small city such as Winnipeg, I have never seen such extravagant beauty at such a vantage point. I was like a five year old child in a toy factory.
