Bangkok is a city as exotic as they come. Home to 11 million people it, at first glance, appears full of soaring towers and traffic-filled streets, but dig beneath the surface and you’ll find a city that has a seam bursting with the rich and fascinating heritage of the Thai people. From the opulence of the Grand Palace at Bangkok’s heart, to the quiet alleyways and longtail boats that ply the Chao Phraya River, there is plenty to discover for those who are looking for history. On the other hand, Bangkok’s fluidity shows itself in the sophistication of its sleek malls, high-class hotels, sky bars and upmarket eateries and chaos of its buzzing streets packed with friendly locals, tuk tuks, travellers and overflowing market stalls. This is a city that can be whatever you want it to be.
