CNN International’s lively blogsite cnngo.com has found 50 reasons why Bangkok is the world’s greatest city, including pecularities such as a statue of David Beckham in a city temple.
Admittedly, the ccngo team spoil the effect by adding links to pages on why Shanghai, Hong Kong and Tokyo are also the world’s greatest city, but the attractions they uncover for Bangkok make a compelling case.
