There is so much to experience in the City of Angels. It’s easy to understand why Bangkok is the most visited city in the world.
The waterways are a way of life for people in Thailand. The floating markets are open most weekends to experience the bustle of people selling their wares. Every market offers a blend of delicious food, souvenirs and photographic opportunities. A trip to Bangkok is not complete without a visit to one of the famous markets. To beat the throngs of tourists, get there early.
The Chao Phraya River, also known as the River of Kings, remains the most important waterway for the people of central Thailand. It is a significant transportation route for people and cargo as it flows through Bangkok to the Gulf of Thailand. On each bank of the river, you’ll find an eclectic collection of malls, hotels, restaurants and historic buildings. Travelling by river shuttle boat is a convenient means of accessing tourist attractions such as Wat Arun and the Grand Palace. Evening dinner cruises are also very popular with international travellers and ex-pat visitors.
