Bangkok Pocket Guide

Images Of Bangkok

Bangkok is a melting pot of nationalities. It's hard to think of a city anywhere else in the world where so many travellers lay their hat at the one time. The Thai capital is the base point for travellers about to embark on a trip around not just Thailand, but the whole of South East Asia. The city is also one of the most popular stop off points for those either travelling to or from Australia. Many who travel there start their journeys on the infamous Khao San Road.

Bangkok City Reviews

  • 90%



    Visited the city for 4 days and went to the main sites and some shopping malls. It seems Bangkok becomes more crowded every year - with more and more tour groups from mainland China. Honestly, I would avoid Bangkok and go to other cities if I could.

    Insider Tip:There are people who try to trick you into renting sarongs outside of places like the Grand Palace, but you can rent sarongs inside for free! Don't fall for these tricks!

    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!
