Where to go ? – Bangkok
Over the past ten years or more, the self-styled Land of Smiles has grown from being mainly a backpacker preserve to become one of the countries most popular tourist destinations and businesses of the game. Shambolically from its capital, Bangkok, the epic of white sand in some of the world”s most beautiful beaches, Thailand is able to satisfy different tastes. The difference today is that the elephant walks through the jungle and days spent on palm-fringed beaches usually end in a luxury hotel or Spa Resort, rather than a “dollar-a-night” beach hut.
Most Thais refer to capital “Krung Thep,” Thai abbreviated name of a city that actually consists of 32 different words, a suitably impressive number of monikers for a capital which is one of the most eclectic and exciting.
Bangkok in Thailand is what London is in England: metropolis, the hub of activity, economic and political. The rapid pace of change and the increasing prosperity that gives the city much of its vitality has also caused some problems, with widely reported nightmare traffic jams and pollution. In recent years, the opening of a new smart metropolitan rail land that allows visitors to slide in chaotic scenes below, along with its low cost and often riverboats and convenient air-conditioned taxi, the situation has improved significantly.
The city is running the Chao Phraya river, on the banks find that some of the best hotels in Bangkok. It’s also where visitors will find the Grand Palace, which covers a wide area, is one of the largest sites. Again, is Wat Phra Kaeo, a temple complex that houses the Emerald Buddha. This statue of Buddha is not covered in emeralds, as the name suggests, but is made of translucent green jade. Upstream from the Grand Palace is the Royal Barges. These richly decorated barges are still used for processions on the Chao Phraya. Within the limits of the city is a fortune of over 300 Buddhist temples and shrines.
More famous is Wat Benchamabophit (Marble Temple), Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn) and Wat (Temple of the Golden Buddha). One of the largest temple complexes in the country is Wat Pho. In total there are more than 30 individual temples scattered here, including the Temple of Buddha is the largest. The statue of Buddha is enormous, a great 47.5m (156ft) long and 15 m (49ft) high. The gardens surrounding the temple offers an escape from the frenetic pace of the city. The temple is also the National School of traditional Thai massage.
Floating Market is an interesting place to visit, even if it has become more of a tourist attraction of a genuine market for Thai. Other attractions include Lak Muang (city of stone), Erawan Shrine, where local supply is carried out every day, and the National Museum. Inrymt in Suan Pakkard Palace is a collection of valuable antiques. Interesting is also the former home of the U.S. retailer of silk Jim Thompson who has disappeared without trace in 1967. Today, the house is a craft museum with a shop that sells high-quality silks at reasonable prices. Bangkok‘s thriving nightlife is also a great attraction. The ubiquitous girlie bar in Patpong is known, but these days are tourist friendly, and beyond these dens, there are new designer bars and discos smart modern, as some of the best restaurants in Asia.
