Introducing Bangkok


Bangkok offers a huge number of things to do like trips along the Chao Phraya River while watching as people work for their living from their little boats, or discover the history in the city's palaces. The traffic in Bangkok can be testing at times, but taking the little motorcycle taxis, called "tuk-tuk", can be quite enjoyable. If you are into the arts, there are plenty of museums and galleries to visit, and enjoying a traditional Thai foot massage is the perfect way to unwind after a long day of sightseeing. But finding peace and quiet in Bangkok is easy – just spending a day at one of the city’s temples is enough to get in touch with your spiritual side. There see traditional dancing shows in the evenings, and try some of the fabulous delights of Thai cuisine, where sweet and savory spices come together to create absolutely mouthwatering dishes.

Bangkok is known for:
