bangkok 101Bangkok is Asia's rowdy son who favours a little bit of chaos. With crowds everywhere you turn, flashy lights in every shade of neon and noises loud enough to ring in your ears for a few seconds too long, it's almost as if this metropolis delights in overwhelming you. Immerse yourself in its legendary food culture, get whisked away on a golf cart attached to a scooter, and be awed by the sheer beauty of its many religious structures.
eatEveryone knows that its the street vendors peddling pungent sweet and savory flavours that make the best food options in Bangkok. But in the event that delectable dishes featuring just the right amount of garlic, fish sauce, and basil don't tickle your fancy, check out Bangkok's growing international restaurant scene and sample everything from French to Roman cuisine.
stayWhether you choose to spend a couple of dollars or go all out for that super extravagant holiday, Bangkok is full of surprises when it comes to accomodation. Choose from very swanky riverside resorts, hideouts in small residential streets or backpacker hostels where you can make friends for life. Whatever your decision, make where you stay as much as a highlight as the rest of your trip.
