‘Busy, bustling, glitzy and glamorous’, these are some words closely associated with Bangkok – the capital city of Thailand and one of the most alluring metropolises worldwide. This lively city represents the modern face of Asia with its exuberant exhibits of skyscrapers, its overhead web of flyovers, flourishing hotels and shopping malls and plenteous traffic. Nevertheless, step ahead to its other corner and you get to explore an astonishing collection of ancient buildings including ornate palaces, temples and large sprawling houses, which reflect its wealthy past. Beautiful garden, serene landscapes and vibrant nightlife in the city are also some delightful components of a Bangkok tour.

Bangkok, which was once a ‘hamlet of uncultivated plums’, has grown to be the ‘City of Angles’ owing to its super-flourishing historical constructs and past-paced modernization. The city doesn’t have a much of history behind it, and was founded about two centuries ago by King Rama I – the first king of Chakri dynasty. Over the years, the city was gradually endowed with wats, monasteries and palaces by the Chakri kings, and grew both in size and stature. Today, Bangkok is not just the capital of Thai kingdom, but also a prominent administrative, political and cultural center of the country.

Someone on Bangkok trip has a myriad of tourist attractions to explore. To begin with, the city has hundreds of Buddhist temples, locally called wats, which depict rich cultural heritage of the city. The Grand Palace in Bangkok, the royal residence of kings, is perhaps the most beautiful building in the country. Gorgeously designed and aesthetically decorated, this grand old building is an eye-opener for first-timers. Besides this, the Wat Phra Khao, one of the oldest temples in Thailand, is an excellent instance of classical Thai architecture. The temple is well-renowned for a statue of emerald Buddha. Some other must-visit attractions in Bangkok with spiritual significance include the Wat Pho, Wat Traimit, and Wat Arun.

If you wish savor attractive Thai cultures, visit to Bangkok’s museums is the right choice. Visit the famous Jim Thompson’s House Museum to see one of the best collections of traditional Thai art and crafts. The National Museum and Royal Barge Museum are also worth visiting for travelers with sense of history and cultures. When you’re in Bangkok, it’s hard to resist you using your shopping skills in large capacious markets in the city. Bangkok is internationally famous as a ‘shopping hub of Thailand’, and is a place to buy everything the country is famous for: from jewelry to gem-stones and Thai silks to readymade garments.

When it comes to eating out in Bangkok, the city offers a range of dining avenues to cater all tastes and budget. From traditional Thai cuisines to exquisite Italian food, and a range of Indian and Australian dishes, the city gives its visitors with great dining options. Today, with a range of Bangkok tour packages being available in market, planning a Bangkok tour is not a tough task. Searching Internet, one can find a Bangkok package that perfectly matches his buying criteria.
