After a 12 hour flight I arrived in Bangkok and I fell in love immediately. The people were very friendly, a sunny weather, cheap drinks and ofcourse many Thai food.
My hostel was just behind Koh San Road which is paradise for backpackers like me. Here you can meet your fellow backpackfriends from all over the world. You can try delicious buckets, have a laugh with laughing gas or satisfy your appetite with the local treats: lovely insects.
But that’s not all Bangkok has to offer. Hop in a TukTuk and discover all the beauty of the city. Visit the famous floating market, see the whole city from the roof of Baiyoke Tower or go shopping at the giant Weekend Market. And don’t forget to discover the riverside by boat, which you will find a beautiful experience.
For the culturist among you, you can visit lots of temples and religious places. My personal favourites are the Grand Palace, Lying Buddha in Wat Pho and the temple of Dawn ‘Wat Arun’. But there are many, many more cultural places in Bangkok.
You’ll find that everything in Bangkok and in Thailand is very cheap. But always bargain for a cheaper price. At first you might feel uncomfortable with it, but it’s really a sport for both seller and buyer!
