Bangkok Back

The chaotic pace of Bangkok is a far cry from an idealised vision of the exotic capital of Siam - scattered with high-rise buildings of concrete and glass, the city is a sprawling metropolis that's home to a population of at least nine million people, and it often feels even bigger! 

But under the shadow of the skyscrapers you'll find a heady mix of frenetic markets, busy streets that are buzzing with life and activity, as well as hushed golden temples and early-morning alms-giving ceremonies. And of course, the nightlife of this bewildering city is nothing short of legendary! One way or another, the place will probably get under your skin - and if you don't enjoy the challenge of roaming the busy streets, you can spend time exploring the impressive temples, museums and Royal Palace, and exploring the canals that weave through the town's districts.
