    The capital city of Thailand is known for its vibrant street life and ornate shrines. It’s a place where one can choose to get lost in the myriad din of sights and sounds. It is an international hub for Entertainment, arts, fashion, transport and healthcare. t’s a city of contrasts that has a variety of experiences that is full of activities and experiences. It’s a place where ornate Buddhist temples share the space with sleazy neon joints; the ancient native village homes are side by side the modern mega malls; where traffic congestion can be skipped by taking a leisurely boat ride across the river. Here, the fine dine can be experienced in the majestic restaurants in the skyscrapers and delicious street food can be enjoyed with an equal relish. In its race to the future, it’s these contrasts that give the city its character. Such are the tourist places in Bangkok.

     

    The locals are extremely pleasant and welcoming. Despite the language barrier, most Thai people have a contagious smile that is bound to make one feel the warmth and comfort. Everyday tasks are full of playfulness and fun. Be ready to shed every preconceived notion and apprehension you have had about Bangkok as there so much more to the city. The city is fairly safe minus some petty crimes, fairly organised despite its chaos and there are several hidden gems just worth exploring.

     

    Tropical plants and fruits are found in abundance and the famous Thai cuisine is both delicious and affordable. A well connected public transport makes the city fairly navigable. The famous, rather infamous nightlife is increasingly transitioning from sleazy to more cosmo. The new year celebrations around the mid of April are a sight to behold, and all the tourist places in Bangkok are decorated with myriads of lights and lamps. While there several factors that make it a less than ideal city, its very character leaves one experiencing so much more.
