Once a mere trading port found on the banks of the Choa Phraya River, today Bangkok has grown to become Thailand's largest city. It is also the bold capital of the country and Thailand's centre for commerce, education, politics, diplomacy and spirituality. The vibrant city has difficulty keeping quiet and sitting still but travellers to this region wouldn't have it any other way. From energetic nightlife to bustling markets, glittering high-rises and sultry heat, there are plenty of adventures to be had in Bangkok.
Bangkok cruises disembark at Laem Chabang Port, located approximately 120km south of Bangkok.
Sights to See
Bangkok's endless stream of shopping malls, neon signs and sleek restaurants will no doubt entice you but to experience Bangkok from a traditional point of view you can't go past the city's array of temples. At the top of your list should be the Grand Palace and Wut Arun, also known as the Temple of Dawn. Head to Wat Pho, Bangkok's old city, to view the famous reclining Buddha and take in this ancient temple complex. For a shopping experience with a difference, Bangkok's floating markets have an array of fascinating produce and are great places to mingle with locals and get a feel for life in Bangkok.
What's for Lunch
You'll find some of the best Pad Thai, fried rice or Thai-style omelettes on the streets of Bangkok at one of the city's street vendors. Pick the one with the longest line and enjoy a freshly cooked meal.
If you see only one thing...
Bangkok's Grand Palace is a must visit. The palace complex has been the official residence of the King of Thailand since the 18th century.
In Bangkok you'll run into a range of friendly locals willing to help. Thank them for their hospitality by saying 'Kob kun mak.'
Skip the counterfeit clothing and bring home custom made pieces made by one of Bangkok's inexpensive tailors.
