Phra-Nakhon is one of the 50 districts of Bangkok, Thailand. It is the central district of Bangkok, including Rattanakosin Island. Bangkok boasts of being one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Asia. Here, people used to live and travel on water while temples and palaces were built on the land. It is widely considered as a gateway to South-East Asia and with the best Phra Nakhon Tour Packages, it needs more than just a couple of days to witness the thrill and joy in and around the place. The culture of Bangkok is mostly influenced by the western world and yet holds firmly on its traditional and Buddhist values. The culture is evident on every street corner, the food, the arts and Buddhist temples. Buddhism plays a big part in Thai art, sculpture, paintings and architecture – especially the wat (Thai temple). Thailand's annual festivals include Songkran in April, Loi Krathong in November which is accompanied by the Golden Mount Fair. New Year is celebrated throughout the city. Important dates of the royal family (like birthdays) are also celebrated in the city.
The other communities celebrate their own festivals as well. Festivals, fairs and kite-fights are held in the parks. Krung Thep translates in English to the 'City of Angels', and it is indeed angelic in its own unique way. The city throbs with the joy of living, and examples of this approach are to be found all around the place. Tuks tuks honk their way through the crowded streets, boats loaded with tourists pull past in the canals, bicycles weave their way through the chaos, while tourist pedestrians with cameras around their necks can be seen everywhere. The city bustles with energy and tourists can enjoy a marvellous range of things in this place. From skyscrapers housing sky bars to serene temples full of peace, an eager tourist will find many things to satisfy their thirst for exploration.
