The chaotic streets of Bangkok are counterbalanced by the quiet, dazzling temples and peacefully smiling Buddhas. Behind the skyscrapers of the city centre, long tail boats dash along narrow canals, where luxurious teak villas and wooden shacks built on top of poles sit side by side. The Chatuchak Weekend Market offers everything you can possibly want, from clothes and souvenirs to pets and deep fried crickets.
The air conditioned Skytrain takes visitors from one sight to another high above the traffic jams. The Lumphini Park is a perfect place to get plenty of fresh air, admire enormous iguana lizards, and row a boat on the lake as catfish hop around you. The delicacies of the mouth-watering Thai cuisine are available both at the high-end restaurants on Sukhumvit Road and in street kitchens. The fantastic nightlife of Bangkok attracts party-goers from all around the world.
