Best Quotes about Bangkok

No trip to Thailand is complete without spending a few days in its capital city, Bangkok. If you are looking to describe how wonderful spending some time in Bangkok feels like, then these Bangkok quotes are exactly what you need to convey that feeling.

75. “Bangkok, though, is a rejuvenating tonic; the people seem to have found the magic elixir. Life, a visitor feels, has not been wasted on the Thais.” – Bernard Kalb 

76. “Bangkok is also safe. If you see anybody wearing camouflage holding a machete, don’t be scared. They sell coconuts.” – Bobby Lee

79. “What it boils down to is that when you say the word Las Vegas it means something. You could say New York City and it doesn’t really mean anything. When you say a word like Bangkok, in my mind it means something. There’s not a lot of cities where the world literally brings a picture to your mind.” – Todd Phillips

80. “Travel is very subjective. What one person loves, another loathes. I would say a private paradise in the Caribbean. If you want culture and class, I would say Tuscany. If you want exotic, I would say Bangkok, Thailand.” – Robin Leach

81. “How I love Bangkok! It’s so teeming with everything that should be forbidden. I’m not just talking about the sex trade. I also mean the ways of driving, the ways of putting up buildings, environmental management arrangements, the continual attention of con artists and snatch-thieves, and the quaint local custom of peeing in side-streets.” ― John Dolan

82. “Today, Bangkok cuisine can be described as an indigenous Central cuisine with heavy influences from a heady blend of foreign cultures – Chinese, Mon, Persian, Portuguese, modern European, North American, and more – resulting in a beautiful, quirky mix that locals and visitors alike can’t get enough of.” – Leela Punyaratabandhu

83. “As the capital, Bangkok is naturally the first city that comes to mind when people think of Thailand, and as the centre of government, Bangkok does represent the entire country.

In other words, Bangkok is unique and so is its food.” – Leela Punyaratabandhu

Quotes about other places in Thailand

For photos and videos from other places in Thailand such as Phuket and Hua Hin, here are some more quotes to help you make that post on your social media.

84. “I’ve been visiting Thailand for more than 20 years but didn’t fall in love with it until I visited Phuket Town in Phuket. The northern part of Phuket is one of the most fascinating places I’ve ever been, and largely unspoilt and unknown.” – Tony Parsons

86. “I love Samui in the wee small hours. I especially love it on nights like this when the white moon stares down from the blackness like the pockmarked eye of a blind god. At such times, when the island’s bright signs have paled to grey and the broom of sleep has swept the revellers to their beds, my mind’s cynical crust cracks open a little, and some fanciful poetry leaks in. Then the dark hills appear to me as slumbering prehistoric leviathans, the clouds assume the air of restless ghosts, and the moon-dusted sea murmurs in some long-forgotten tongue of the divine.” – John Dolan

87. “When I was in Thailand, I went into the up-country because Marco Polo didn’t get down into the fleshpots of Bangkok because they didn’t exist in those days.” – Gary Jennings

88. “I went to Phuket already, but would love to go to Chiang Mai one day.” – Roger Federer

89. “The thing to remember about Phuket is it’s very beach-oriented and relaxed. The trendiest beach is Koh Sirey, which is full of groovy places to have a cocktail and watch the sun go down.” – Tony Parsons

Meaningful Quotes about Thailand

For something more thought-provoking, expressive and engaging instead, here are some Thailand quotes that are great conversation starters. Simply copy your favourite and share on your chosen platform for a moving post!

90. “There is a life before and after the voyage, there is a life before and after Thailand.” – Gregg

91. “In essence, the Thai people are not materialistic at all. They’re not in the least driven by the kind of ambition that drives us. The more I got to know them, and the more time I spent with them, the more I understood that this was a totally legitimate attitude to life, and why not?” – John Burdett

92. “Just studying Buddhism, then meditating and going to Buddhist monasteries, talking to Buddhist monks, combined with the Thai people themselves, changed the way I look at the world.” – John Burdett

93. “I discovered that Thailand was one of those countries, like Sri Lanka and India, where the memory of past lives used to be commonplace. Go back a few generations, and you find people talking about earlier lives with total certainty.” – John Burdett

94. “The fact that television and tourism have made the whole world accessible has created the illusion that we enjoy intimate knowledge of other places when we barely scratch their surface. For the vast majority, the knowledge of Thailand or Sri Lanka acquired through tourism consists of little more than the whereabouts of the beach.” – Martin Jacques

95. ““Death,” the pathologist says, “the way a culture views death defines its attitude to life. Forgive me, but sometimes the West gives the impression of being in denial. The Thai attitude is a little different.” What’s so different about Thailand? Oh, it’s not Thailand in particular. The whole of Southeast Asia has the ghost bug – the Malaysians are even worse than us. There are no statistics, of course, but to listen to Thais, you would likely conclude that the undead outnumber the living by a hundred to one.” – John Burdet

Quotes about the Culture and Spirit of Thailand

For something more uplifting and motivational, these quotes about the culture and spirit of Thailand are worth sharing.

96. “Having never taken a decent holiday before, I decided on a trip to Thailand, booked a flight and flew out the following week. Mate, I loved it. The friendly people, the food, the females!” – Simon Palmer

97. “The really nice thing about the town of Hua Hin – and Thailand generally – is that it’s so safe. You can walk around the night market, for example, with complete confidence.” – Prue Leith

98. “Thailand was never a European colony, so even though the city is very Western on the surface, deep down it’s very Asian. It’s quite enigmatic, and I like that. I can’t get to the bottom of Bangkok, and I never will.” – Lawrence Osborne

99. “I’ve always had an interest in Muay Thai fighting. I love the discipline and toughness of it, so I travelled to Thailand to easy ways to incorporate it into my style.” – Rusev

100. “Overall, I think Thailand is quite accepting of transgender and homosexual people. I think this acceptance is largely due to a combination of surgically enhanced or hormonally induced beauty, higher levels of education and the ladyboy reputation as being emblematic of Thailand. Many ladyboys represent Thailand in international contests for transgender beauty pageants and we’re usually amongst the top finalists.” – Pornchai Sereemongkonpol

101. “Despite the fact that the majority of Thais are devoted to the teachings of Theravada Buddhism, vegetarian practice is rare. Even the Theravada Buddhist monks may be unable to follow a vegetarian diet, since they vow to live simply, subsisting on whatever the people provide for them.” – Nancie McDermott

102. “Meandering cows, tenacious bicyclers, belching taxis, rickshaws, fearless pedestrians, and the occasional mobile ‘cigarette and sweets’ stand all fought our taxi for room on the narrow two-lane road turned local byway.” – Jennifer S. Alderson

103. “The attractions of Thailand for me are the shops and the colorful street markets. There are loads of bargains and it’s a dream destination for shopaholics like myself.“ – Gok Wan

104. “Everyone’s so nice in Thailand, and it’s a beautiful place – the temples, the culture. But everyone’s so nice that it’s almost inefficient.” – Scot Armstrong
