BANGKOKBangkok is synonymous with lively chaos but Thailand's great metropolis is also a compelling experience for the senses and a fascinating city full of contrast.We begin our sightseeing tour early in the morning about a hundred kilometres south west of the city centre at the floating market of Damnoen Saduak. Here, men and women travel on the canals by sampan amid a fertile landscape. Fruit, vegetables, flowers and all manner of goods are available and many of the boats have a kitchen in which fresh food is prepared to satisfy hearty appetites.Back in the city we visit some of its most important sights such as the Wat Phra Kaeo, The Temple of the Emerald Buddha, the most important place of worship for the Thai people. Bangkok's most important landmark is also its most beautiful temple complex, a wonderful work of art comprising numerous splendid buildings. Today the Royal Grand Palace is used for national ceremonies and coronations. During the city's early years it was originally built as a residence for King Rama. The magnificent residence of the former god king shines out in all the typical splendour and elegance of the Far East, a Siamese heaven on Earth!In the 19th century Bangkok contained several canals known as 'Klongs' and most of them have subsequently been replaced with streets but a few have survived. Travelling on the canals is a wonderful way to take in the sights and for centuries life on the city's waterways has changed very little.Bangkok is a typical Asian city with much exotic hustle, bustle and excitement. It is truly a city that never sleeps!

Advantages: a totally different culture Disadvantages: can be too hot
I decided to visit Bangkok following recommendations from friends and family. However, as you can imagine, not everyone agreed that it was a safe place to go, particularly as I went with another female. Many family members thought that this was a bad idea and that two females alone in Thailand, particularly Bangkok would be preyed upon by the locals. However, they...
Advantages: Beautiful people, beautiful city. Disadvantages: Being hassled by Tuk Tuk drivers, and being told attractions were closed.
...Bangkok is the capital city of Thailand, and is probably most famous for its imprisonment of Westerners bringing drugs into the country, ladyboys and prostitution. Bangkok is also a beautiful city, where thankfully, my friend and I only witnessed one of the above!
Although we loved it immediately, a lot of people hate the city when they first arrive. It is probably best to spend your first...
Advantages: Offers something for everyone, cheap Disadvantages: Not easy on the eye, choose where you stay based on the kind of holiday you want
...? and a love affair, tempered with frequent bouts of frustration, with the country began for him.
Once he settled down with me he didn?t go to Thailand for some time, but he never lost his love of the place ? and he viewed Pattaya as a place to go to escape the stifling heat and madness of Bangkok for a few days. When he inevitably tired of the stifling heat and craziness of Pattaya after a few days, he...
