If you’ve already been to Bangkok, Thailand you know it’s an enchanting place full of vigor, zest for life and well, tourists.
On the other hand, if you haven’t been to the capital of Thailand yet, we suggest you do it quickly as it could soon be submerged under water.
Chulalonkorn University’s Itthi Trisirisattayawong reported a sinking rate of close to 30 mm a year, which is twice as fast as it was before, giving the Thai government and the residents something to ponder on when it comes to solving this dire problem.
One of the favourites among non-Asian tourists in this part of the world, Bangkok may be flooded as early as 2030 as a result of rapid development, heavy industry and the skyscrapers featured on the Bangkok skyline.
According to various scientists, historic buildings are at a particular risk, and the government is slow in taking action to prevent a disaster that many scholars claim awaits the Thai capital.
In other words, if you are planning a trip to Thailand, be sure to visit Bangkok as it may completely change as we know it in the next 10 to 20 years, and it would be a shame to miss out on everything it has to offer today.
