Today’s Image of the Day from the European Space Agency features the city of Bangkok, Thailand, with an impressive amount of green space.

Home to over eight million people, Bangkok is helping to set a new standard for healthier urban life by developing 2,000 hectares of green space, known as Bang Kachao, in the middle of the city.

The green oasis surrounds the Chao Phraya River that flows through Bangkok toward the Gulf of Thailand.
