Thailand’s capital city is modern, exciting and sophisticated, yet it still retains a very Asian flavour.
Throughout the day and much of the night the streets are alive with countless weird and wonderful sights, sounds and smells.
The hustle, bustle and sheer energy of this fantastic city will have you agape with wonder, and its centuries’ old culture will leave you entranced. Bangkok is dotted with temples, some are subtlety beautiful, and others are opulent and magnificent.
The temples of the golden Buddha, reclining Buddha and emerald Buddha definitely fall into the latter category. The Royal Palace is a must for the first time visitor.
Bangkok is the sort of city you could quite easily spend day after day simply wandering around, sampling the varied sensual delights on offer from every angle. Try the various local delicacies being sold from virtually every street corner.
For those who like the sight of muscle bound boys going at each other, snap up front row tickets at a Thai boxing match, and sit back and watch the scrap while the crowd roars around you.
Alternatively you can enjoy a leisurely cruise along the Chao Phraya River and on display is Bangkok in all its raw glory.
Shopping? No visit to this city is complete without venturing into the famous ChatuChak weekend market, or check one of the many world class shopping malls.
The bars and clubs in town have some of the World’s most exotic and unusual shows, so prepare to be entertained and perhaps a little shocked.
If all of this seems a little over the top, Bangkok also boasts countless bars and some fantastic restaurants, offering world class cuisine from all over the world.
