The ‘City of Angels’ is Thailand’s showcase, and it boasts many of the most important, not to mention beautiful, buildings and temples in the country. It should be your first stop on any Thailand visit, with endless curious sights. There really is plenty to see and do in this vibrant city, so it’s worth spending a few days in the capital as a tourist.
Wat Arun is one of Bangkok’s key tourist attractions and one of its most famous sights. At sunset, Wat Arun presents a fantastic picture with the river in the foreground.
Bangkok’s hospitality is famous and its people are very welcoming and friendly. With so many hotels, restaurants, bars and entertainment options you really are spoilt for choice.
Bangkok lies at the geographic heart of Thailand, with the Gulf of Thailand stretching away to the south and the rice-growing heartland to the north. Beyond the city reaches there are enough attractions in Thailand’s central provinces to keep you busy for a week or more. Some, such as the popular floating market and the worthwhile Ancient City, are easy day trips, while others deserve a few days visit, but aren’t too far away.
