Bangkok, also known as Krung Thep the “City of Angels” is a city steeped in tradition and yet thoroughly modern. A vibrant metropolis with soaring skyscrapers, colorful temples, and mesmerizing royal palaces, Bangkok is a city of contradictions. It is by far the most densely populated city in Thailand with about 12 million people surrounded by the flowing waters of the Chao Phraya River. It is home to one of the world’s largest airports and yet it’s still a place where food and flowers are sold from wooden long-tail boats floating on the Chao Phraya River.
Mobility around the city comes with ease. The SkyTrain has literally changed the face and dynamics of the city, but tourists are encouraged to be adventurous and jump on a TukTuk or Motorbike.
Visit the oldest Chinatown in the whole world, explore the Chatuchack Market, shop till you drop or eat from the street food vendors or enjoy a drink with a 360 degree panoramic view at any of the rooftops bars.
The slogan Mai Pen Rai (Thai for “no worries”), defines the friendliness and open mentality of all Thais.
Are you fan of nightlife? Visit Soi 2 to 4, in Patpong for the gay nightlife hot spot of Bangkok, where both locals and tourists flock to have a great time and mingle. There is also Sukhumvit Road, Sapa Kwai and Ramkamhaeng that host a great gay/nightlife atmosphere.
