Bangkok, visit what?

The door real Thai capital of the country to travel to Thailand's entry is no shortage of assets to retain foreign travellers a few days before you let them continue their journey.

Wat Arun

Here lies the most important temple of Thailand both its size and its prestige, the Wat Phra Kaew which houses the famous Buddha d ' Emerald and is adjacent to the Grand Palace, Royal residence which is today more inhabited. A tour of the temples of Bangkok's most interesting goes necessarily through that one plus in general the Wat Pho and its huge reclining Buddha which lies just beside and Wat Arun or temple of the dawn, opposite, on the other side of the Chao Phraya. We recommend also a ride on the Golden Mount or temple of the Golden mountain, which offers a view panoramic city views and Wat Benchamaphobit construction marble which houses a magnificent Buddha. But there are still many others obviously.

Bangkok is sometimes called the "Venice of Asia" as a part of the city is crossed by small channels, the klongs, on which you can stroll in long tail boats, longtail boat. The scenery is assured. You will discover another face of the capital, more rustic, more authentic.

Every weekend is held in Bangkok the largest market in the country and one of the largest in Asia, the Chatuchak Weekend Market near Chatuchak Park accessible by metro (stop Mo Chit or Chatuchak). There are literally everything. Otherwise, there are many floating markets on weekends in Bangkok and its surroundings. The most popular and the most frequent tourists are those ofAmphawa (evening) and Damnoen Saduak (morning). These are generally take you see agencies or taxi drivers offering you the visit of a floating market. There is also a flower market and many other local markets across the capital.

80 Km to the North, this former capital of the Kingdom rich in temples and monuments can be visited in a day departing from Bangkok. The ideal to get there it is to borrow the railway, trains in Thailand are not expensive at all and allow contact with the population as nowhere else.

One can also add the Wimanmek Palace or the House of Jim Thompson to the list. And then, it is easy to stay and visit Bangkok. Find a cheap hotel in Bangkok is very easy in general and at Khao San Road, real neighborhood backpacker of the city in particular.
