Bangkok’s packed with 8 Millions people in 1,568.7 square kilometres (605.7 sq mi). It’s occupied by financial, business, social, culture and entertainment activities. There are not enough green space in Bangkok to breath.

Just across the Chao Phraya River, Bang Kachao produces 6 Millions tones of Oxygen serving Bangkok, every single day. It’s posted by Time Magazine in 2006 as the Best Urban Oasis of Asia.
