Travel Guide – Bangkok
Bangkok, the capital of Thailand and home to more than 7 million people, is one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations. Visitors come to shop, eat and drink at low prices, experience pulsating nightlife and take in the beautiful temples that can be found throughout the city. Getting to other destinations in Thailand or elsewhere in Asia is simple from the city’s huge, modern Suvarnabhumi Airport. Krung Thep, meaning “City of Angels,” is an alternative name for Bangkok.

THAI FOOD & DRINK IN BANGKOK
Food and drink is generally very inexpensive in Thailand, and is especially true in regards to local Thai dishes available at small restaurants or when buying from one of the city’s countless food trucks. Bangkok has more expensive alternatives, however, and prices can differ dramatically depending on what you choose. Thai food in Bangkok is influenced by both Chinese and Indian cuisine. In Bangkok people eat using either a fork and spoon or chopsticks and rice is the most important component in cooking, along with the famous nam pla fish sauce.
