Introduction to Bangkok, Thailand

Bangkok has both old-world charm and modern convenience. Sometimes served in a seemingly chaotic manner, but always with a gracious smile.

Almost every Thailand trip includes a visit to the capital, Bangkok, or Krung Thep, “City of Angels” as it is called by the Thais. Many tourists who travel to Bangkok are immediately overwhelmed by the sheer size of the city, and the vast number of attractions Bangkok has to offer.

Bangkok has a feast of attractions to offer. The city has 400 glittering Buddhist temples of great beauty, magnificent palaces, classical dance performances, numerous shopping centres, and a still functioning traditional lifestyle.

The most convenient way to travel in Bangkok is with the BTS Skytrain which is an elevated railway that crosses the city’s slow and sometimes noisy traffic. Travel distances that normally would have taken an hour now take 15 minutes. Another advantage of the BTS is the great view you get as you go, glimpses of green spaces and historic architecture that you do not notice so well from the street level.

In recent years, boat taxis are becoming more popular again with new electric-powered engines. When using the convenient water taxi you will see Bangkok from yet again a whole other fascinating angle.
