In case you’ve been away or just not read the news for a few weeks, Bangkok has a stunning new walkway above the Pathum Wan intersection. It’s cost 300 million baht and taken two years to construct. But it’s now open and become the new place-to-meet-friends in the capital.

But the Skywalk doesn’t have a name. The Bangkok Metropolitan Authority and local investors need your help and are happy to give you 100,000 baht if you can come up with a name for the walkway. The name needs to be submitted in both English and Thai. The key messages, we’re told, is to reflect the ideas of an ‘art district’ or ‘epicentre’. Currently the new walkway is adorned with street art and murals by 13 local artists.

The catch is you need to be a Thai national to enter the competition. A shame because we’ve come up with the perfect name…

‘Luke Skywalk’.
