Once an ordinary trading port, now the most visited city on the planet and the capital of Thailand. Bangkok’s rise to the top as a premier tourist destination is built on a stairway of contrasts. This is where fast-paced modern lifestyle meets the slow-paced past. Where vibrant streets combine incredible juxtaposition of taste, architecture, culture, and luxury. Bangkok is the ultimate urban explosion.

Nose-Tickling Thai Cuisine

No visit is complete without diving into the local cuisine. What makes Bangkok special is its ability to draw people to the capital from every corner of the country. The traditional taste of Thai food here is boosted by regional variety all in one bustling Bangkok pot combining Thailand’s five main flavors: salty, sweet, sour, bitter, and spicy. Specialties like Kai Kon Pu (crab meat in a creamy omelet with pan-fried noodles on top) is always a good start. Yummy!

Vibrant Street Life

Bangkok is truly felt through its streets. Buy local produce and enjoy traditional folk custom in one of its floating markets. Or catch a cab and drive up to one of the city’s extravagant live shows. You can surely catch a boozy ex-pat in one of many nightclubs that line-up Khao San Road, Royal City Avenue, and elsewhere, or get fancy rising above city lights to catch dazzling views from a rooftop restaurant. Bangkok’s streets are full of surprises and discoveries for those who are ready to explore and experience.

Magnificent Temples

Wander to Wat Pho, also known as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha – standing at an impressive 15 meters tall and 46 meters long, the magnificent sight is a reminder of Thailand’s true identity, both in faith and architecture. Wat Arun, locally known as Wat Chaeng is another iconic must-visit temple in Bangkok. Named after Aruna, the Hindu god of dawn, its distinctive spires make it one of Thailand’s most identifiable landmarks. Sitting side by side with all of the modern attractions, the City of Angel’s sacred temples are a unique part of the capital’s heart and soul.

It Is All About Curiosity

Bangkok is all about being curious. Shopping at mega-malls for high-end fashion designer clothes is met by a picturesque Chao Phraya River cruise. If you are looking for challenges, an abandoned 49 story skyscraper is waiting for another climber. Maybe riding a Skytrain to one of the city’s museums will be your biggest highlight. Not to mention world-renowned Thai massage or great sightseeing with locations such as the Grand Palace and Chatuchak Market. Be curious and Bangkok will open up in all of its glory.
