Wonderful BANGKOK

An electric cable jungle of reclining golden Buddhas and floating markets, bedazzled neon taxis and excruciating massages, Bangkok is all about indulging in simple pleasures with unchecked joy. Whether served from steaming street food carts or with vertiginous views on rooftop bars, Thai food is like Thai weather – hot and sticky. A long-tail boat ride down the river should include a peek at the majestically dilapidated Old Custom House or a stop at a luxurious hotel for pampered high tea. Visit Jim Thompson's silk empire in the labyrinthic canal-side community of Baan Krua or catch the racing Skytrain to Sukhumvit and party with the expats. Once the sun has set behind the looming towers of steel, the murky waters of Bangkok resemble dark treacle, reflecting the big city lights in all their shimmering glory.
