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. 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 jumping 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. If you travel in April, be sure to experience the Songkran Festival, or the Thai New Year, where locals splash water on one another.
