Thailand: Bangkok – Visit to Southeastern Asia
One night in Bangkok and world’s your oyster. The bars are temples but pearls ain’t free... – a 1980s popular song of Murray Head.
The city, which is a sought destination of travelers. The town, which is has in many minds an irresistible oriental feeling.. It was in the 1980s when the aforementioned song originated, Bangkok experienced a boom. It continued throughout the 1990s until it slowed during economic crisis in Asia at the end of the 1990s.
This rapid development indirectly followed the development of the city after World War II, when the Japanese intervention army left the country. After this Thailand started receiving American aid. Bangkok became R&R destination of the US army. On one hand, it proved to helpful to the city because it helped tourism. On the other hand, Bangkok became infamous for sex tourism. This reputation stuck with Bangkok ever since.
When you arrive in Bangkok all your senses will be immediately under a attack of sensations, aromas, colors and flashes . Bangkok’s location is ideal for the growth of exotic plants that you see at almost every step. But you'll also meet Buddhist monks in their traditional red robes, you will encounter various markets, prepare to see on the streets of a great, if somewhat sharp, Thai food , and traffic jams.
Allegedly, it is best to visit Bangkok from November to February when weather is colder. In these months the air has also the lowest level of humidity. However, the temperature is also at this time can easily rise to 30 degrees Celsius. During the hot season, which is in March and April, do not be surprised if you see the thermometer mercury attack 40 degrees of Celsius .
From May to October is the rainy season then. At that time the city affect flooding, but for tourists exhausted from the heat and humidity it might be a pleasant cool down. Well, exceptperiod from September to October when the rains are the heaviest.
Bangkok is the economic center of Thailand. It creates one third of gross domestic product. Much of the city's economy naturally involved in the tourism industry. In fact, Bangkok has long been held in the foreground ranking the most popular tourist destinations in the world. In 2010, the city was visited by 11 million tourists.
In Bangkok, in addition to a number of museums also find royal palaces, gardens, Buddhist or Hindu temples. In the city you also can have a boat or ship ride on the river Chao Phraya .

Thailand is the most popular tourist destination in Southeast Asia. There is everything you can expect from perfect vacation. Beautiful beaches, perfect cheap cuisine, many cultural and historical sights, Thai massage, unforgettable full moon parties. More than 16 million tourists visit Thailand every year.
It seems that only beautiful resorts and beaches is what Thailand offers to its tourists. Actually, there is much more.
Countless shrines, dozens narrow streets with beautiful old houses, luxurious hotels, museums, omnipresent food aromas, and the best coffee in Thailand. You will fall in love with Chiang Mai instantly. There are kind people, international atmosphere, and it is really clean in there.
The night is setting upon the land, streets are going alive – with food. When I arrived at there, I was not hungry. But now I would eat just everything. Hundreds of variations of noodles and rice, various sea creatures, great grilled meat, lots of fruits and veggies. The Chinese Town in Bangkok chewed me and swallowed me.
The capital of Thailand belongs to largest cities in southeast Asia as there live 8 million people. Cheap flight transportation makes it a natural place from where to start travels to the region including countries like Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, or Malaysia. In my opinion, too bad than many travelers spend there a day or two and move on.
When I was arriving at the center of Krabi province I didn’t expect much. Guidebooks don’t mention it at all and it is rather an obligatory stop for many travelers while transporting to local islands or to nearby Ao Nang resort.
Krabi province in south Thailand has been more and more popular. Ao Nang resort and Ko Phi Phi are its greatest attractions. They offer splendid sceneries around limestone cliffs, many great bars, restaurants, and nearby are beaches like Railay, Ko Poda, and Ko Hong which are among the most beautiful in all Thailand.
Ko Lanta island is an ideal place for peaceful rest, or to enjoy cool tropical atmosphere of southern Thailand. Half-empty beaches, bungalows, and small pensions scattered across coconut groves will enchant you. The same applies to sleepy bars, restaurants, and there are also great possibilities where to dive, or you can visit a vast national park in the mountainous middle of the island. It will take you mere three hours to get there from the Krabi airport.
Endless beaches with white coral sand, countless of Buddhist temples, breathtaking mountain vistas, many kinds of exotic life, and vivid life in the capital.
In previous work we have gained sine basic idea of Bangkok and also of what makes it interesting for tourism. In today's episode we look at some of Bangkok's top attractions.
Ko Tao, a beautiful island in the Gulf of Thailand that is known as a diver’ paradise. When you arrive to the island, first things you will see are granite stones scattered around great part of the island, they basically create the island.
We have already mentioned the Phra Nang beach. It is the most beautiful beach (like popular Railey beaches) on cape Laem Phra Nang. The best thing about this beach is that there are no bungalows (only 2 exits from 5 star bungalows).
As it has been already mentioned, the Leam Phra Nang peninsula is known for its four beaches - Railey West Beach, Railey East Beach, Ao Phra Nang and Ton Sai.
Emerald islands scattered in the Andaman Sea, mysterious caves with 3000 years old paintings on the island of Ban Tho BHO or slender and tall karsts formations, towering waves of the azure sea. The province of Krabi in southern Thailand's most popular harbours several places across the country and ranks as the sites where you will visit every year a huge amount of visitors.
Do you want to rest from your everyday worries and visit some place with a absolutely different climate? Do you want to have some sporting activity during your vacation (including climbing)? One of the best option is Thailand, a country in southeastern Asia.
Lovely Thailand each year of its beauty lures millions of tourists. They are looking there primarily the gently arms of the Andaman and South China Sea, many of them have just as easily fail Thai inland, high mountains with tropical forest, smiling Thai girls or mystical Buddhist temples.
