Description

Bangkok is the capital of Thailand and, with a population of over eleven million inhabitants, by far its largest city. Its high-rise buildings, heavy traffic congestion, intense heat and naughty nightlife do not immediately give you a warm welcome — but don't let your first impression mislead you. It is one of Asia's most cosmopolitan cities with magnificent temples and palaces, authentic canals, busy markets and a vibrant nightlife that has something for everyone.

Bangkok Travel Tips & Reviews

Oct 2, 2016

Bangkok is full of amazing markets (and the cheapest in Thailand), a river to explore by boat, beautiful temples and excellent street food. Make sure you visit over a weekend so you can go to a weekend market. Use it as your home base between the north and islands. Check out my blog for ideas on cheap things to do in Bangkok!

What an experience visiting the city of Bangkok! A bustling modern city that will leave you breathless! From temples, to floating markets, to modern shopping malls, this city is definitely worth spending a few days at! Be sure check out my posts and photos on Attractions in Bangkok and on the Bangkok Floating Market, which is definitely worth visiting before they are gone forever!

The City of Angels is exotic, gritty and friendly. Jump off and on the Chao Phraya Tourist Boat's 8 piers for an inexpensive and fun day of visiting cathedrals, temples, museums, markets and of course the Grand Palace.
