Bangkok, the Thai capital is a big, bustling city that can be a
struggle to get around, but there are enough highlights to make
staying for a couple of days of your holiday well worth it.
Original Travel can arrange a private city tour to make the
process as painless as possible, and the must-sees on a Bangkok
holiday should include the following: The Grand Palace and
attendant buildings; the 150 foot long reclining Buddha at Wat Po;
Jim Thomson's teak house; a wander around Soi Rambutti (a far
better version of the tourist-trap Khao San Road) and finally a
ride on a long-tail boat on the Chao Phraya River with the odd peek
into the more interesting looking tributaries.
My highlight: A klong trip through the canals that connect the city, which is known as 'Venice of the East', is highly recommended. Like any city connected by water, there's so much life going on here that's well worth seeing.
