    Extremely lively, crazy city with lots to do

    Bangkok is a great city for going out (nightlife), seeing temples, food, and a very very busy lively place. I loved this city however it really is hectic everywhere here, and I would say that you don't want to spend more than a few days here or you might get tired of it!

    The locals are friendly and nice in general. Polite too. Will try to help you even their English are below average. Rich with culture. Nowadays there are mixture or language on the signage including English, Russian Cyrillic and far east Asian.
