Why Go

It is easy to get lost in the sprawling metropolis of Bangkok, and that is not such a bad thing. The Thai capital is the epitome of concrete jungle, although with no real geographic or cultural focal point. Several hundred years of palaces and temples span the city. For history buffs, check out the Grand Palace, an example of grand Thai architecture and the former home of the royal family. To get off the streets and catch your breath, flag down one of the ubiquitous (and usually overpriced) tuk-tuks or hop on the Skytrain or underground MRT. Take a canal boat (or dinner cruise) to see the softer side of the in-your-face city. After dark, the Silom district hosts some of the world’s most notorious after-hours activities, but if ping pong ... Read more
shows aren't your style then try an evening with drinks on a rooftop high-rise bar like Skybar or catching a band or performance. Or, considering you are in Thailand, go out to eat. From international fusion at five-star hotels to street food (deep-fried insects are a delicacy), eating is Bangkok's favorite pastime. Shopping is second on the list of favorite pastimes, and you'll be spoiled for choice. If you're in Bangkok on a weekend, don't miss Chatuchak Market, one of the largest markets anywhere, period.

Melting pot of cultures, colours, smiles and .. well the list goes on.. so many negative Perception about Bangers.. if in doubt ask don't assume .. Respectful culture, diverse and dynamic - ultra modern and efficient or rustic history .. the choices are endless and if it rains or traffic congests .. its time for a foot massage .. the best is google bangkok achievers

We were at Bangkok two months back for its water festival. It was one of the best and unique festivals I have ever been to. Oh well yes, we were ready.. or rather we THOUGHT we were ready... till we walked to the streets.

Bangkok is a big, cosmopolitan city with mega malls, roving street food vendors, skyscrapers and sky bars, bumping nightlife and of course beautiful temples and the Grand Palace. There's endless things to see and do and explore in this bustling city.

A girlfriend who had recently spent some time in Silom recommended I check out the bargains here. For one thing, it was more like a fifteen minute walk from Surasak BTS than the five minute walk I had been lead to anticipate - though that’s no skin off my nose, as I enjoy getting out in the sunshine on BKK’s trendy side of town. I ended up browsing a variety of stores before eventually settling on a few pieces of heavily discounted (think 60 - 85%) Ralph Lauren items that will be ideal for my upcoming travels. Cheers BFO, very happy with the haul!

Bangkok is full of hustle and bustle. It's a fantastic city to have tailored to your measurements clothes made. If you intend to do that, make sure you hunt for fabric first and then expect a two to three day turnaround on your items. (I had a top and a skirt made which I still cherish to this day.) If you're landing and departing from Bangkok, you can usually arrange to have your items made before you fly out. Once you get off the main waterways and into the canals where people live, you'll see a different side of Bangkok that tugs on your heart strings. From the street food to the five star hotel bars, Bangkok is a place that goes a mile a minute, but the dazzling palaces are what will most likely capture your imagination.

Really enjoyed my bangkok trip! Love the history, the gold embellished temples,the bargain shopping and especially the elephant ride! It would have been perfect if the taxi and tuktuk drivers didn't over charge tourists. Nonetheless, would definitely go back to bangkok!

TIP: Visit during Jan - Feb, weather is not that hot and humid.
