Bangkok

The City of Angels

Bangkok the Capital of Thailand is undoubtedly the most exciting and interesting city to visit in all of Asia. Though you may find that Bangkok has become a very modern city in every sense of the word with high-rises, sky trains and subway systems, but you will also find that many of the fascinating ways of the original settlers are still in vogue - adding to the charm of the city.

For example you will still find food vendors, what we call Thai Fast Food, plying virtually every street of the city serving up a quick and economical meal to office workers, laborers and millionaires alike. (Normally a vendor will serve only one particular dish (specialty), there to enjoy a full meal of several dishes including desserts one would be served by several vendors!). Water taxis and water busses still ply the river and canals serving commuters from suburban residential areas to the inner city, and for those who simply want to get from A to B using the fastest mode of transport, after the motorcycle taxi of course. Floating markets is still a normal way of obtaining daily needs of the people living along, or even on these waterways. So, as you see, Bangkok may be a big city, but our Thai culture and customs are still very evident everywhere you look.
