Explore the vast network of local streets, alleyways, footpaths and canals between the main urban thoroughfares. You will find/see hidden worlds of peace and tranquility, a picture of “real” Thai life that has remained unchanged for countless decades; an identity of a city that is true to the Thai people, yet largely unknown to outsiders.
Whether it’s the colorful sights and smells of the local markets (under the Phra Khanong bridge), the fascinating life of locals along the canals, or the surprising existence of bountiful green belts, discover the essence of what makes Bangkok one of Asia’s most captivating cities.
Bicycles, boats, and our feet become the tools we use to gain access to the previously inaccessible, behind-the-scenes lifestyle of the Thai. Here the roots of an ancient culture will become evident in a way you never could have imagined.

Vincent Sung Professional Photographer / Travel & Lifestyle photo-journalist / Creative Director / Contents Producer Hello, I grew up and lived in Belgium where I studied Visual Communications & Journalism before apprenticing with some renowned photographers in Europe (Paris and Brussels). In 1992, I moved to Paris to take on assignments for a variety of Parisian modeling agencies, building models’ portfolios and worked for a number of fashion magazines (Marie Claire bis and Marie Claire) In 1996, my 'Korean roots' called me back and I decided to move back to Seoul, South Korea. There, I worked for the Korean editions of prominent international fashion magazines such as ELLE, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire, Noblesse, Haute, frequently traveling on assignments that took me elsewhere in Asia, Europe and USA (San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles). Early 2010, my globetrotter mindset and lifestyle, with a special affection for S.E. Asian countries, made me decide to relocate to Bangkok, Thailand. From here, I have contributed to publications about travel and lifestyle featured in: DestinAsian, Lifestyle+Travel, Asean Tripper, Eloquence, Elle Indonesia, Conde Nast Traveller UK, World Travel magazine, NAA magazine, magazine Latitudes, Wanderlust. At present, I share my time between SEOUL and BANGKOK (I just finished the first Asian edition of Cool-Cities.com/Bangkok). When not writing - shooting a travel feature, I also teach photography courses and organize themed workshops. Find my workshops and online portfolio at www.vincentsung.com Full profile
