Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, is one of the most visited cities in the world and it isn’t really hard to know why. Known to the Thais as “Krungthep”, which means the City of Angels, it is one of Asia’s most cosmopolitan cities with action on every corner: Marvel at the gleaming temples, catch a tuk tuk along the bustling Chinatown or take a longtail boat through floating markets. Food is another one of its highlights, from local dishes served at humble street stalls to haute cuisine at romantic rooftop restaurants, Bangkok has something for everyone and truly never ceases to amaze you.
