Bangkok is the largest city in Thailand and its capital. Home to some 14 million people, it is hard to describe Bangkok to those who have yet to succumb to its charms. It a city that seems to have something of everything. Culture, food of all shapes and sizes, non stop shopping, exotic night life, the mighty Chao Phraya river, swanky skyscrapers, a smattering of traditional housing, crazy road traffic, mass transit systems and a populace who remain friendly and welcoming despite the surrounding mayhem. Look a little deeper and you can find pockets of peace and tranquility, in places like Lumphini Park and Bang Krachao, but for the most part it is a city that never sleeps. And, it would probably laugh at you if you suggested it be any other way.
