Bangkok is one of the world's most populous cities, and with good reason. Anything you can think of, you will find in Bangkok. It became the capital of Thailand in 1782 under the King Rama I, before that, Ayutthaya was the kingdom's capital, and also merits a visit. If you are looking for phenomenal food, kind people, ancient temple ruins, buddhist culture, beautiful nature, and cheap shopping you needn't look any further. You've found the city that captures and keeps a hold of so many foreigners. While visiting, you must try: Som tam (spicy papaya salad), Tom Yum (spicy and sour soup with your choice of meat), laab (pork or chicken cooked with lime and flavored with mint) and khao soi* (spicy coconut soup with soft as well as crispy noodles and your choice of meat *recommended). So the adventure begins! Let's begin with things you can do during the day, then move into things for the afternoon/evening and leave the nightlife for the finale.
