As the capital and largest city of Thailand, Bangkok represents both its modernity and the evolution of its rich heritage. With soaring high-rises and a plethora of contemporary shopping centres and entertainment, Bangkok is one of Asia’s most progressive and advanced cities. As it is a very popular tourist destination, the locals are very accommodating to foreigners, and even those who speak only English should have no problem navigating and taking in the city. But for those who are hoping to absorb the traditional Thai culture, it can easily be found throughout the city, most notably on the island of Rattanakosin, also called the “Old City”. Ancient palaces and Buddhist temples are awe-inspiring sights and are a great gateway to learning about the city’s heritage. Bangkok blends old and new world experiences to provide a vacation that’s as unique as it is enlightening.
