Hectic, larger-than-life and unbelievable are just three words that could be used to describe Bangkok. The feverish energy Bangkok greets you with carries you towards Thailand’s crazy and surreal capital, a place which you will probably either love or learn to love.
A city which rapidly expanded during the 1960s through to the 1980s has been left with a rather haphazard cityscape which doesn’t seem to have had any kind of urban planning. However, the winding streets threaded between cultural landmarks and ornate temples, add to Bangkok’s character and vibrant street life.
The City of Angels, as it is also known, will let you explore ornate temples, marvel at the unique market stalls and gaze at the modern buildings which are popping up all over the city. Whatever you end up thinking of Bangkok, there’s one thing you can guarantee – you won’t be bored!
