About bangkok

The capital of Thailand, Krung Thep or Bangkok is one of Asia' s most cosmopolitan cities. With its magnificent temples, authentic canals, exotic food, busy markets, visual delights and a vibrant nightlife, Bangkok has something for everyone. That' s why it' s often rated as the number one tourist destination, welcoming the most number of international visitors. Bangkok is considered as the gateway to the Southeast Asian world and is usually scheduled as a stopover between cities, but to fully enjoy the wonders of this intoxicating city, you' ll need more than just a couple of days. Popularly known as the 'City of Angels', you' ll find visitors everywhere taking in the sights and sounds of Bangkok by tuk-tuk, canals, bicycle or foot. Though it might seem noisy and chaotic, there is so much to discover within the city from skyscrapers with sky bars to the countless temples and the backpacking area around the Khao San Road. Bangkok is also famous for its street food like the hot dogs, seafood snacks and noodle soup. The popular places to visit are the Wat Arun, Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Floating Market and more. The boat tours are a once-in-a-lifetime experience, just like shopping in Bangkok.
