Local Guide

There are two sides to Bangkok: one side reflects the ancient soul of Thailand, with its long and fascinating history; the other side is the frenetic modern metropolis that embraces the latest trends, both Eastern and Western.The two sides blend remarkably well - even the most jarring juxtapositions of old and new will start to make sense after a few days - and shrines in front of car dealerships or monks on all manner of public transportation will be sights taken for granted.Bangkok is not only the biggest city in Thailand, but also the most mesmerising, with some of the country's most beautiful temples and shrines.
