Bangkok, the City of Angels has a rich, multi-faceted personality. Explore the city and you will find cool, air-conditioned mega-malls and a whole host of international brand names just minutes from 200-year-old village homes. There are gleaming gold Buddhist temples in the same areas as neon-lit strips of go-go bars and night clubs and streets lined with food carts selling cheap Thai classic food next to restaurants on top of skyscrapers serving sensational international cuisine. You could enjoy a memorable dinner cruise adrift the Chao Phraya River, soak up the city’s warmth and night time glow in a sky scraping rooftop bar. Other unique experiences in Bangkok include tuk-tuk rides, ladyboy shows, Muay Thai (kickboxing) contests, and the famous traditional Thai massage which are loved by everyone.
