Bangkok welcomes more visitors than any other city in the world and it doesn’t take long to realize why. Bangkok is a city of contrasts with action at every turn; marvel at the gleaming temples, catch a tuk-tuk along bustling Chinatown or take a longtail boat through floating markets. Food is another Bangkok highlight, with tantalizing options from local dishes served at humble street stalls to haute cuisine at romantic rooftop restaurants. Luxury malls compete with a sea of boutiques and markets, where once can treat themselves to countless options. Extravagant luxury hotels and surprisingly inexpensive serviced apartments may welcome you with the same famed Thai hospitality. And alas no visit to Bangkok would be complete without a glimpse of the famous nightlife – from cabarets to local pubs, Bangkok is a city that never ceases to amaze.
