'If you could design Bangkok, what would it be," asks Jatuporn Tansirimas, campaigner of Makkasan Hope, a group advocating for a new public park. He's open to every resident's opinion. 

The Makkasan Hope petition urges the State Railways of Thailand to turn its almost 500-rai unused plot into a park and museum.

Bangkok in your dreams could be a greener city or a larger concrete jungle, but Jatuporn wants everyone to have his or her version of Bangkok.
