Bangkok, Thailand's capital, is well-known as a popular tourist destination full of exotic energy. In between the skyscrapers and world-class shopping malls, the city is never short on historical and cultural attractions of its own; and the waterways around the Chao Phraya River are some of the most scenic areas around Bangkok. The city’s most famous landmark Grand Palace needs little introduction. Whether you're visiting temples like Wat Arun, fascinating cultural sites like Jim Thompson House, or boat-filled Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, Bangkok will surprise you at every turn.
Bangkok usually serves as a starting place for travelers to the fascinating Thailand. In fact, it is a large, diverse city with something for everyone. Besides palaces, temples and floating markets, food is also a Bangkok highlight from the local dishes served at street stalls to the upscale restaurants; the vibrant nightlife is another draw, including night markets, clubs, and theatrical shows.
