Kadeejeen: The World in a Bangkok Neighborhood
In the center of Bangkok lies a .6-square-mile ecosystem that represents a greater global whole: the community of Kadeejeen. Over the centuries, Thai residents mingled here with Chinese, Muslim, and Portuguese citizens. Together, they fended off foreign invasions and conducted trade. It’s now nearly equally divided across religions; 2000 Christians live in Kadeejeen alongside 1500 Buddhists and 1500 Muslims. Exploring its tightly wound alleyways reveals multicultural harmony and inspires hope.
