Bangkok never ceases to amaze the visitor. Certainly amongst the most exciting cities in Asia, if not the world, this huge, teeming metropolis of over 15 million Thais has evolved over time into a vast melting-pot of 21st-century sophistication sprinkled with ancient Thai tradition and culture. Bangkok has come of age over recent times. The infuriating traffic jams are still a part of daily life and the pollution will forever remain a major concern. But, in spite of all this, a modern, reliable, sophisticated transportation system, world-class shopping, temples and historical artefects galore, night markets and ever-changing nightlife, fashions and trends, provide Bangkok with an undiminished allure and appeal. The city is also the main gateway to the rest of Indochina with quick and convenient connections to all of them from Bangkok’s modern Suvarnabhumi Airport.
