Bangkok, mega-city, land of metal and glass.
What’s there to do in the city?
Explore shopping malls, ride a motorbike taxi, visit China Town. Take a river cruise, visit the night market in Pat Pong, watch the Beatles cover band, caress exotic pets at the weekend market, experience the embalmed serial killer in the forensic museum, ride the BTS to Siam, visit MBK, drown in the neon splash of Soi Cowboy, shop at the floating Market in Bang Na, lizard love in Lumpini, jazz sessions on Sunday afternoons, secondhand bookstores and people watching on Khao San Road, ride the public bus, get lost, be found, but best of all - find a bar on a busy street, grab a drink and watch the river of humanity flow on by.
