What to find in Bangkok, Thailand?

Bangkok is the capital of Thailand. Thai people call Bangkok as Krung Thep meaning the “City of Angels”. It’s actually one of the biggest cities in the world and its population reaches over 10 million people. It’s very active and what do you get from visiting an active city? A lot of FUN!

If you’re in Bangkok, you must drop by Pattaya as well and enjoy their beautiful beaches there that are one of the worlds richest and beautiful. There are lots of places to go if you want to have a little sightseeing and picture taking. Bangkok has lots of great areas to visit such as the Golden Mount, Democracy Monument and Chao Phya River & Canal. Museums are worth visiting here too such as their National Museum and the Railway Museum.

Bangkok is not Bangkok without their nightlife which is one of the most famous reasons for tourists to go to Bangkok. Bangkok has a good and a not so good reputation under their nightlife because prostitution in Thailand is a blooming industry. But, despite the rampant prostitution here, you can still find lots of great places to hangout all over Bangkok for an awesome night! Come and visit their Royal City Avenue or the Sukhumvit Soi 24 or go to the Patpong Night Bazaar for some great entertainment or maybe, the Calypso Cabaret is your thing.

Shopping of course is very important. If you’re in Bangkok, go to Central World Plaza and Gaysorn Plaza. Over the weekend, shop at Jatuchak Weekend Market to get a good bargain on different Bangkok products and clothing.

All in all, it’s fun to visit Bangkok and for sure you’d want to keep on coming back for more.
