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.

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.

So easy to get around. Download the GRAB app for cheap and reliable transportation. Also download Bangkok itinerary apps and use as a reference for locations. Skytrain and MRT are excellent. Go to Terminal 21. Check out the snake farm. A hidden gem. Stayed at Asoke Clover Hotel across from Terminal 21 and close to Skytrain.

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