Bangkok traffic fully lived up to its reputation; crazy, fun, dangerous, organised chaos.
How the locals make it work I will never know, but they make it work. This footage was taken just moments before I started yelling at my tuk tuk driver for dangerous driving. He was going stupidly fast compared to the rest of traffic (which at its normal rate is already stupidly fast) and cutting into the oncoming lane when it was clear enough for him to skip ahead other vehicles.
I saw women jumping side-saddle onto the back of motorcycles, wearing no helmet, barley holding on and seeming not to flinch an inch when the scooter zoomed off. It appeared looking pretty while riding was more important than protecting yourself in the event of a nasty crash. In fact, on one such occasion I saw this occur, there was a giant billboard on the other side of the road depicting a horrific traffic accident and warning people to wear helmets!! But here’s the craziest thing about Bangkok: the crazy is intoxicating. Would I go back...yeah, sure, for no more than two days, but I would go back, even with all of that madness, it pulls you in.
What are some places that you visited that gave you a culture shock?
