10 Reasons Bangkok is the Best City in Asia
Hey, guys what's up. In this video, I will give you ten reasons why Bangkok is one of the best cities in Asia. 

First, it's definitely one of the warmest cities in Asia. It never gets too hot and it never gets too cold. Two, it's one of the cheapest cities in Asia. So unlike Tokyo, that's very expensive, Bangkok does not cost that much. The people are some of the friendliest people around. They are very friendly and there is just a lot of things you can do. Surprisingly, Bangkok is one of the greenest cities in Asia. It has a lot of parks and it has a lot of trees. You can see some of the trees behind me so that's really cool. 

It's also one of the fastest growing cities. So they are building these high rises all over the place and it's really cool. And in my opinion, it's the most beautiful city at night. So the skyline is just gorgeous. I love looking at the skyline. Also, Thailand has some of the most delicious food in Asia. If you have not had Thai food, believe me, Thai food is so delicious. It's great.

It has some of the friendliest people, they are really, really nice. It's always fun to talk with Thais and you have a really great time. And also I think it is one of the most relaxed cities in Asia. The people are not too stressed. Everybody knows how to just kind of have fun and take it easy so I really, really enjoy that. 

Another thing I like is it's one of the most convenient cities in Asia because it has the BTS, which is the train system. And all the cool spots are along the train system so it's really, really nice. Also it is near many beaches so it's very convenient. It is one of the most convenient places if you want to go to the beach or you want to go see nature or things like that.

So, yeah, I think that's it. Oh, maybe one other reason is Thailand has some of the most interesting culture so I really enjoy Thai culture and everything about it. So that's it. That's why Bangkok is one of the best cities in Asia.
