36 Hours In...Bangkok

Why spend 'One Night in Bangkok' when you can have 36?

A heady mix of palaces and temples, mesmerising cuisine and vibrant street life reward the visitor to this extraordinary city, says Tom Vater, a long time resident and destination expert for western media outlets.

The city offers many compelling reasons, way beyond the stereotype of an exotic nightlife and budget hostels on the Khao San Road. There is the year-round sunshine, the fascinating palaces and temples, as well as some of Asia’s best food. Then there are the countless markets day and night, as well as the unreserved friendliness of the locals.

The crowds, traffic and pollution can seem daunting at first, but this tropical metropolis of 11 million people is both reasonably safe and surprisingly navigable, making it an urban cornucopia of smells, tastes, sounds and sights you are unlikely to forget.
