Your Bangkok story starts here
Same same, but different. The Thai capital is sensory explosion of culture, tastes, sights and sounds. It's the contrasts that give Bangkok it's rich multi-faced identity.
Slick megamalls are higgledy-piggledy with 200-year-old village homes; flashes of gold from temples shine alongside neon-lit strips of sleaze; slow-moving traffic is overtaken by long-tail boats plying the royal river; Buddhist monks shop for the latest tech; and streets lined with hawker stalls are overlooked by restaurants perched on top of skyscrapers.
