One of the best places to visit. Bangkok is cultural, diverse, interesting, amazing, friendly, and really lots of fun. Make sure you stay away from the bad places though...

There are beautiful sights for those who want to admire the Thai architecture and traditions. It is also the paradise for food lovers, you cannot miss to try some of the specialties of Thai cuisine, you will observe that locals eat and smile a lot as well, maybe there is connection.

Nightlife in Bangkok is exceptional, lights, great restaurants and the best clubs you have seen. You should, of course stay away from unsecure places, but you can really enjoy yourself if you are the owl type.
