Bangkok Holidays

It is easy to get lost in the sprawling metropolis of Bangkok, and that is not such a bad thing. The Thai capital is the epitome of concrete jungle, although with no real geographic or cultural focal point. Several hundred years of palaces and temples span the city. For history buffs, check out the Grand Palace, an example of grand Thai ... Read more
architecture and the former home of the royal family. To get off the streets and catch your breath, flag down one of the ubiquitous (and usually overpriced) tuk-tuks or hop on the Skytrain or underground MRT. Take a canal boat (or dinner cruise) to see the softer side of the in-your-face city. After dark, the Silom district hosts some of the world’s most notorious after-hours activities, but if ping pong shows aren't your style then try an evening with drinks on a rooftop high-rise bar like Skybar or catching a band or performance. Or, considering you are in Thailand, go out to eat. From international fusion at five-star hotels to street food (deep-fried insects are a delicacy), eating is Bangkok's favorite pastime. Shopping is second on the list of favorite pastimes, and you'll be spoiled for choice. If you're in Bangkok on a weekend, don't miss Chatuchak Market, one of the largest markets anywhere, period.

Bangkok’s daytime highs remain pretty consistently in the range of hot to hotter throughout the year, so fill your suitcase with light, airy clothing. The best time to visit is when there is less rain and ... Read more
plenty of blue skies between November and April, although be prepared to be one among many tourists during this time. Thailand is a pretty affordable destination, so getting slightly cheaper hotel rates (and fewer crowds) in exchange for unpredictable weather -- which includes street-flooding monsoons -- from May through October is probably not worth it for many.

Bangkok is the next generation of modern cities, emerging from a sprawl into a clean and vibrant futuristic super-city.

Bangkok offers lots to see in terms of culture and cuisine. The Grand Palace is, of course, stunning, despite the hoards of tourists. The air isn't the freshest and it's hot as hell, but that's how it is. People are pretty friendly, which I appreciated.

If you like big cities, and are street savvy, Bangkok is great for you.... super cheap to do everything, but if you want nice people and a laid back atmosphere, Chiangmai is where you need to go.

Love or hate it, Bangkok is an epicenter of Southeast Asia and Thai culture that must be experienced! Whether you choose to stay in the backpacker center of Khao San Road or avoid it at all costs, there's plenty to do, see, and soak up in the Thai capital.
