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.

    I really Like Bangkok

    Bangkok is a great city with plenty to do. The only thing is to ensure you know what people are interested as there is a nice cultural side and a very seedy underbelly that some don't like....

    Insider Tip:Figure out what you are looking to get into in Bangkok and make sure that your entire group is aligned.

    Still one of my favorite cities.

    I used to live in Thailand, I loved Bangkok then, and I still love it. It's a great city with a lot to offer. I could visit a hundred more times and still find new things to see.

    Awesome city! Come here!

    Yes, it's way too damn hot, but that's okay. Bangkok is by far the coolest city I've been to in Asia. I never wanted to leave. There's so much to do and it's almost all completely affordable. I can't wait to come back.

    Insider Tip:If you get sick of Thai food (what? impossible!), check out the area just north of the BTS Nana station. Around Soi 7 and heading away from the BTS line is a "Little Middle East" with some kickass food. Lebanese, Turkish, you name it. Kebabs galore!

    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!
