Welcome to Bangkok
To the Thai people, it is known as Krung Thep, or City of Angels, and it is indeed a heavenly destination which dazzles the senses with ancient canals, amazing street food, ornate shrines, and a nonstop nightlife.
Thailand’s capital is modern and old all at once, with both temples and high rises piercing the sky above. The energy of eight million residents is felt throughout its streets, while green spaces like central Lumpini Park offer serenity.
It is on the Chao Phraya River and its canals where you’ll immerse yourself in the heart of the city. Hop on and off a traditional wood-built longtail ferry boat to visit the many temples that line the waterway. Climb the steep steps to Wat Arun Temple or pay your respects to the 150 foot reclining Buddha at Wat Pho Temple.
Also visit the Grand Palace complex which includes Wat Phra Kaew Temple, considered the most sacred temple in all of Thailand, and the unique Erawan Museum housed in a three story, three-headed bronze elephant statue.
Like the locals you’ll love Bangkok’s renowned street food and unstoppable nightlife. And shopping can span everything from the high end mall of Siam Paragon to the 8,000 colorful, crowded stalls of Chatuchak Market.
For those seeking the offbeat but authentic, make use of the many motorcycle taxis, indulge in a Thai massage, enjoy a Bangkok puppet show, or pay the security guards at the doors of abandoned Sathorn Unique Tower for entry into the 49 story unfinished skyscraper and an urban hiking adventure with breathtaking views at the top.
