"Concrete skyscrapers, colourful bazaars and golden temples; the contrasting faces of Bangkok allow for a multitude of different experiences within this fast-paced city."
Few places in the world offer up such a fascinating fusion of old and new, with ultra-modern malls neighbouring centuries-old homes and exquisite palaces conflicting with the ever-present flicker of neon light. Bangkok is vast and vibrant, and a must-see for anyone visiting Thailand.
The best way to explore Bangkok is on street level. Immerse yourself in the urban jungle, take in the chugging sounds of the noisy tuk tuk, grab a bite to eat at one of the countless street food vendors or lose yourself amongst a hidden marketplace. From the backpacker’s paradise of Khao San Road through to the tiny backstreets of China Town, it’s easy to spend days navigating this wonderful city.
