Coming from New York I am used to crazy big cities but Bangkok sure made me question if I really was used to it. The traffic is insane and the drivers have to be skilled because I didn't see any accidents( thank god)
Insider Tip:To see the temples the easiest way is to take a boat, it is 40 baht one way and 150 baht to take the boats all day. Kind of like a hop on hop off. There is a free boat that takes you to the riverfront where there is a lot of shops and restaurants called Asiatique. A really good restaurant that I loved is "Nalin Kitchen" and a great hookah bar with a big screen for watching soccer is Kazbar. We also checked out Cloud 47 which has great views of the city at night.
