Bangkok is the capital of Thailand and, with a population of over eleven million inhabitants, by far its largest city. Its high-rise buildings, heavy traffic congestion, intense heat and naughty nightlife do not immediately give you a warm welcome — but don’t let your first impression mislead you. It is one of Asia’s most cosmopolitan cities with magnificent temples and palaces, authentic canals, busy markets and a vibrant nightlife that has something for everyone.
The mappa map covers: Siam Square, Sukhumvit, Silom, old Bangkok with the Grand Palace and Wat Pho, Khao San Road and Banglamphu for the budget traveller, Yaowarat Road and Chinatown, Dusit, Thonburi, Chao Phraya River, Pratunam, Phahonyothin Road and Viphavadi Rangsit Road with their huge weekend markets, Don Muang Airport. Bus, train, skytrain and metro stations are included, along with boat stops.
Visit temples such as Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun, the Emerald Bhuddha and the Grand Palace, make your way to Dusit Palace or Jim Thompson’s House, go shopping, enjoy the Chinese quarter, visit the museums and galleries, relax in the parks or go to Queen Saovabha Institute Snake Farm or Siam Ocean World.
