Stories, rants & observations on expat life in Asia’s craziest city.

Hi! My name is Greg, and I keep a blog about living and working in Bangkok. I’m also a freelance writer, and do various other things that meet at the intersection of Thailand, technology, and media. Find out more below.

 What’s so great about Bangkok, you ask? 

 Bangkok isn’t for everyone. In fact, I know people who go out of their way to avoid it when traveling. But personally, I love this city. Sure, coups and violent protests break out from time to time, and the “seasons” consist of hot, hotter, and wet. The traffic sucks, there are too many condos, and it could really use a half-dozen new parks…but just look at that city back there.

That, my friends, is a city with attitude. A city of contrasts and energy, hidden beauty and conspicuous grime. Of great friends, fine food, and half-remembered nights.

 I’ve been here since 2001 and I’m not even close to being bored. And that’s what this site is about. No top ten lists, no breakdowns of must-see attractions, no hotel reviews. It’s just what the tagline says:
