Bangkok, Thailand’s capital, is a large city known for ornate shrines and vibrant street life. The boat-filled Chao Phraya River feeds its network of canals, flowing past the Rattanakosin royal district, home to opulent Grand Palace and its sacred Wat Phra Kaew Temple. Nearby is Wat Pho Temple with an enormous reclining Buddha and, on the opposite shore, Wat Arun Temple with its steep steps and Khmer-style spire.
Also known as the City of Angels and Venice of the East, Bangkok will hit you like a ton of bricks. Hot, polluted, and chaotic, it thrills with energy. But it’s the Bangkok nightlife experiences which is the main reasons so many people make the trip to this steamy metropolis year after year! The night markets in Bangkok are among the easiest and most enjoyable ways of getting up close and personal with locals, and they have unique shops and delicious food everywhere.
The Thai people are delightful, cute and kind. So enjoy preparing for your trip to Bangkok, and take it easy.
