Bangkok: A dream city at last?

- +

As we await the exciting Bangkok governor election on March 3, I have a dream that Bangkok will be full of trees and parks and have good public transport. I have a dream it will take me only 30 minutes (instead of one hour) to go to work and that I will have a choice not to drive to work. 

I have a dream that we will have many self-contained communities where children need not commute so far to go to a good school and I need not drive so long to go to a nice park or a good hospital. I have a dream that Bangkok will have a great music and nightlife culture where I can get together with friends peacefully after work.

The latest global comparisons of cities in the Mercer Quality of Living Survey show the most liveable city in the world is Vienna, which ranks at the top for a fourth straight year, surpassing cities in Switzerland, Denmark and Germany.
