Bangkok is the financial, political and cultural capital of Thailand, located in the centre-south of the country, in the heart of a fertile rice-growing region. Bisected by the Chao Phraya River, which is overlooked by all the major palaces, Buddhist temples and luxury hotels, Bangkok is seventh heaven for those who love their food and their shopping. Its legendarily bad congestion has been eased by the opening of the BTS Skytrain in 1999 and the metro (MRT) 2005, which has finally given the city centre a quick and exhaust-free mode of transport. New is the Suvarnabhumi Airport Rail Link, a fast train linking the Bangkok International Airport with the City.

Get to know Bangkok
Bangkok just gets better and better. The "City of Angels" is turning into
Asia's coolest city. Whether your trip is for business or pleasure, find out
a little more about Bangkok with our area guide.
Siam - Think shopping, think Siam, especially for upbeat clothes. Shop til' you
drop in the small streets (sois) or in huge shopping malls providing floors
of shops in air-conditioned comfort. When you're dazed with shopping, eat,
drink, take a break at the cinema, go bowling, sing in a modern karaoke or
chill out at Starbucks. It's all here. more...
Khao San Road - Formerly a quiet area with just a few budget guest houses, Khao San Road
in the district of Banglamphsu is rapidly becoming an alternative Bangkok
attraction and a "must do" on the backpacker and GAP student trail. Cheap
guest houses, street cafes, markets, boutiques, bars and lots of young
travellers on route to Thailand's tropical beaches provide a colourful
enclave in this old part of Bangkok. .
Ploenchit/Chitlom - If the riverside represents Bangkok's historical roots, the areas around
Ploenchit Road, Chitlom, Rajadamri and Lang Suan are the new face of
Bangkok. Characterized by high rise buildings, upscale apartments,
embassies, expensive shopping malls and luxury hotels, the area has its fair
share of chic places to be seen in. Le Royal Meridien President, the
Grand Hyatt Erawan, the Conrad and the Hilton International are all
located around here. More...
Pratunam - One of Bangkok's most colourful areas, well known for its street markets,
bazaar and local vendors. Pratunam and the small Nai Lert markets offer
bargain prices for T shirts, jeans, fashion clothing, shoes, calculators,
watches, jewelry and all sorts of souvenirs. You'll need to look for the
entrances to the inside of the market, hidden between stalls and shops.
Cluttered, noisy and hot, but packed with great deals if you have the
Silom - The most important financial and business area of Bangkok. Stretching from
the river fanning north-east from Taksin (Sathorn) bridge along Silom,
Surawong and and Sathorn Rd, the area contains a mix of older European,
Chinese and Indian influences, modern high rise buildings, restaurants,
shopping arcades, department stores, and entertainment areas like Patpong.
Chinatown - Chinatown is a colorful and busy area, packed with market stalls and
probably the greatest concentration of gold shops in the city. The Chinese
community, re-located from Rattanakosin in the early 19th century, still
continue their own traditions and religious practices and the area is quite
unlike the rest of the city. In addition to the markets, you'll find Chinese
temples, Taoist places of learning and traditional Chinese medicine shops
selling all sorts of fascinating remedies.
Sukhumvit Road - One of Bangkok's best known areas, Sukhumvit Road stretches across the
city from east to west, with many roads and streets (Sois) intersecting and
connecting to other areas of Bangkok. Lined with a mix of hotels (Rembrandt
President Solitaire Hotel & Spa,
Amari Boulevard Hotel ...), old local stores, restaurants serving food
from all over the globe, furniture and antique shops, it reflects the pace
of change in the city. More...
Rattanakosin - Close to the river, just north of Chinatown, is Ko Rattanakosin, the
oldest part of Bangkok. Often referred to as an island, it was originally
carved out of a bend in the river to strengthen the defensive position of
the new Siamese capital in the 18th century and is the home of many the
city's traditional and historical attractions.
Bangkok - The City of Angels
people call their capital "Krung Thep" which means the city of angels. It
was founded about 300 years ago to replace the old capital city, Thonburi.
Most interesting tourist places in Bangkok are grand and splendid temples
and palaces, canals and rivers. Furthermore, Bangkok is also a shopping
center of all kinds of goods.
Bangkok Bars and Cocktail
Lounges - A guide to the best bars in Bangkok
One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble and you might
well be floored by the breakneck pace and frenetic modernity of this wild
city. Polluted, over-populated and hemmed in by high-rises it seems vast and
untamable. But under the shadow of the skyscrapers and amid the chaos of the
screaming traffic, zombie like sex shows and pungent smells, is a city of
refinement and history, calm and culture. Golden Buddhist temples, a gentle
snaking river, colorful tuk tuks and wonderful kindness await the visitor.
The nightlife is like nowhere else in the East and the bars, restaurants and
clubs have people coming back time and again.
