Bangkok or Krung Thep, “City of Angels“, is like our home away from home. Beneath the dust and chaos, the city is packed with things to do and places to see.
Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew
The former home of the monarch, the Grand Palace is located on the ground of the architectural wonder Temple of the Emerald Buddha. The grounds contain more than 100 buildings, all beautifully decorated with gold and diamonds in different colors in old-Bangkok style.
Songkran: Water Festival
Songkran is an annual festival which takes place over three days during the traditional Thai New Year. As April is the hottest month of the year in Thailand, everyone gets involved with this country-wide water fight and it brings great relief from the soaring temperatures. Songkran started as a Buddhist tradition, using a light sprinkling of water to symbolise purification but, as time went by, people began splashing each other in a more playful manner
Tuk Tuk rides
Riding a tuk-tuk is more of an experience rather than a practical way to get around. So, if it’s your first time in The Big Mango, there’s no harm in giving it a go.
You find them at couple of places in Thailand. The boats are piled up with tropical fruit and vegetables, fresh, ready-to-drink coconut juice and local food cooked from floating kitchens located right on the boat.
this red-light district has a more laid-back, carnival-like feel to it. Flashing neon lights up a colourful streetscape of 20 or so A go-go bars that line its sides. It’s pretty easygoing and open-minded, entry is always free and drink’s prices are fixed.
Khao San Road: Insects Eating
What made it famous: the sprawling neon signs that light up the street at night are still here, street vendors peddling everything from fried insects to croaking ornamental frogs, and drunken revellers, lost in the neon glare, staggering its length late into the night.
You will find the most delicious and authentic Thai street food, including some Chinese inspired dishes that are not available anywhere else in Thailand.
