Attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, Bangkok is one of the most modern and developed cities in the country. Known for its temples, markets and thriving nightlife, Bangkok’s main airport is also a very large hub, meaning it’s easy to jump on a short flight to visit Thailand’s stunning islands such as Phuket and Koh Samui. Popular with backpackers, families and honeymooners alike, Bangkok really does have something for everyone.
Ideal for foodies, the city also offers some of the most delicious and recognisable food in the world. From upper class dining establishments to fun and informal street food, Thai cuisine is aromatic and delicately fragranced with lemon, ginger, chillies and a wide variety of spices.
And of course, there’s the famous ladyboy scene. There are a variety of theories as to why ladyboys are so popular in Bangkok, but it’s a very accepted and popular form of entertainment. Certainly one which is likely to stick in your mind!
If a more cultural experience is on the cards, there are over 400 temples (called “wats”) in Bangkok alone, many of which welcome visitors. The main ones however are Wat Pra Kaew, Wat Arun and Wat Pho, although a strict dress code applies, meaning no short pants or sleeveless shirts.
If you’ve got kids in tow, there’s also a brilliant range of activities for all ages and abilities. From ice skating rinks to games arcades to theme parks and play zones, there’s plenty to choose from if you’re visiting Bangkok as a family.
