Bangkok, Thailand’s capital, is a truly large, cosmopolitan and dynamic city of contrasts, fun folks and fantastic food! Wandering through Bangkok is uniquely rewarding, its easy to get lost in tiny Chinatown streets or feel mesmerized by glittering temples around Rattanakosin royal district. Nightlife in both sides of long Sukhumvit road shows how vibrant and different Bangkok can be. With so much of stuff done right on the streets to glittering shopping malls and tightly secured night clubs.
It is a city with a multifaceted personality. At times when you see old temples with golden rooftops, old village houses which could be called museums of the past and brand-new, shining strip clubs clustered in one area may seem a bit strange mix. Or while visiting a local temple it is easy to witness a monk dressed in robes with a brand-new smart phone in his hand. From top of many rooftop bars and restaurants it is possible to view how ordinary Thai life is buzzling around small food carts lined up in the streets.
Nevertheless, its so complex and cosmopolitan city, Thai people are warm, welcoming and even huge language barrier does not prevent anybody from getting along. “Same Same, but different”, probably our favorite Thai phrase which we will remember for a long time. It is also part of their philosophy which defines Bangkok and whole Thailand in general.
Last but not least, or even the best is Bangkok food variety, quality and tastefulness. Most of the people who visited this city are well aware that Bangkok is perhaps one of the best-value destinations around the world when it comes to food! City’s kitchen is growing more and more multicultural as over the years many people from the provinces and from abroad are moving in. Bringing many diverse regional dishes and international cuisine together and making Bangkok a capital of food in Thailand! It is a sin not to try a plate of famous “Pad Thai” where base flavors like sour, spicy, salty and sweet mixes together creating wonderful taste in any local Bangkok street restaurant.
Best of luck planning your holidays in Thailand!
