Sitting on the Chao Phraya River, Bangkok is probably one of the most famous cities in Asia. From gleaming skyscrapers and huge billboards advertising all the big brands to ancient palces, temples and quaint waterways - the striking contrasts of this thriving metropolis are obvious. People have been visiting Bangkok for many many years and being the gateway to Thailand and Southeast Asia it is a place most travellers to the area will pass through at some point.
When people think of Bangkok they picture floating markets, busy streets of colourful Tuk Tuks, ornate temples and exotic lady boy cabarets. The city has something for everyone. One massive draw card that Thailand and indeed Bangkok likes to play is its food. Thai food is one of the most popular in the world serving up delights like exotic fruits, fragrant rice, super spicy curries and the downright strange - deep fried cockroach anyone?
Bangkok has so many attractions and probably the most famous are the beautiful Grand Palace, famous reclining Buddha at Wat Pho and the riverside temple of Wat Arun.
