House in a small soi in Bangkok, Thailand covered in foliage — Featured Photo

One thing you will notice about houses in Bangkok, Thailand, if they have any flowers, plants or other foliage, they will grow like Topsy due to the extreme heat and the humidity.

So much so, if you are not a fan of thick foliage, you might have a struggle keeping it tamed.

This house in a small soi near where I live in northern Bangkok, for instance, was almost devoid of foliage when I left for a trip to Europe.

Two weeks later, I arrived back in my neighborhood to an explosion of luscious green foliage almost covering the house windows, and arched over its gateway.

The house was so vibrantly colorful that a shot of it is perfect for a Tasty Thailand Featured Photo.
