Tradition, business and busyness have to be the three best words to describe the capital of Thailand as known as Bankok. It is a wonderful blend of highly cultural places and a crazy dynamic city of over 9 million habitants.
Do not expext to be the only one when visiting the Grand Palace and all other temples but it is a once in a lifetime experience. Using taxi boats is a fun, cheap and nice way to avoid traffic jam. I wish European cities had some of these!
Bangkok typically is the kind of city where you could live for years and still discover new things. Wandering around the city without any plan is a great way to explore it. Food specialities as Pad Thai and the friendliness of locals have been a good first impression for the coming month!
