Bangkok city is like no other with its complex mix of modern skyscrapers, super-engineered SkyTain (and subway) and many exotic old world Buddhist temples and adoration of the King. Up-scale life is abundantly visible in the countless Mercedes cars (and an occasional Rolls Royce) and 5-star high-rise luxury condo towers. Low-scale life is visible in every back alley where small dark houses are home to the working class. There are of course many midscale houses crowded between these two extremes of the urban jungle. In a city of 8 million, everything is crowded but the city pulse continues daily and smoothly, including the relatively small LGBT scene.
