What to see and do in Bangkok

Bustling, sticky, intoxicating and exotic Bangkok is a feat for the senses with neon shimmering casinos, rooftop cocktail bars and mega malls a stone’s throw from ancient temples, tea houses and vibrant local street markets. Ramshackle buildings are piled high on the frantic streets which are a delight to explore on foot or, if you have the nerve, by tuk tuk. Monks mingle with the morning rush hour crowds stopping at street food stalls for their breakfast. Ancient stilt houses still line the magnificent Chao Phraya River, selling their wares from long wooden boats in floating markets. Bangkok is a backpacker hub with bargains lining Khao San Road to Chinatown. It is a place to experience some of the wildest parties in Asia, the cheapest and most relaxing massages and the best beaches for soaking up the sun. 

Attractions: Erawan Shrine, Grand Palace, Lumphini Park, National Museum, Wat Arun Temple, Wat Pho Temple.
