Bangkok needs little introduction and is one of the worlds most exciting cities. Wonderful hotels, good shopping, palaces and floating markets are just a few of the delights on offer. It is well worth a night or two as part of your journey.
Although many travellers try to avoid visiting Thailand’s capital city due to its immense and chaotic nature it is an interesting city to discover. Amongst the thriving streets and floating markets are many fascinating temples, Buddha statues and ancient ruins. Bangkok is a true example of the force of modernisation in the East: a vast metropolis of towering skyscrapers and luxury hotels blended sitting alongside local houses and religious temples and palaces.
Travellers visiting Bangkok are offered a wide selection of accommodation, ranging from very local guesthouses to immensely lavish hotels and resorts. Over the past few years Bangkok has come a long way in terms of tourism development and this is looking to expand further.
Although Bangkok is mainly overlooked and simply used as a quick stopping point between holidays to other regions of Thailand and South East Asia it is well worth a visit. It offers some of the best shopping in Asia, whether in the large shopping centres or in the many streets and floating markets. It is a great city for those who enjoy the buzz and atmosphere of city life.
