Bangkok is a quintessential blend of old and new! Meaning the city of angels, Bangkok is the capital city of Thailand – and is its largest metropolis. The city has always been ahead in terms of its modernity, and was at the heart of Siam, the former name for the Kingdom of Thailand. Every street turn is a new adventure, where skyscrapers meet astonishing traditional architecture, interspersed with numerous beautiful temples, monasteries and palaces. It is a shopper’s paradise too – from gleaming luxury malls with glittering electronic goods and designer fashion to charming street and night markets where you can hone your negotiation skills and pick up a marvellous bargain or two.
