Bangkok

A heady mix of contrasts and striking individuality makes it Southeast-Asia's darling, and the Thais' beloved City of Angels.

Alongside megamalls and a pulsating business district, Bangkok in Thailand, still keeps its history with its majestic Grand Palace, serene reclining Buddha at Wat Pho, and the waterways of the Chao Praya.

The Kanchanaburi Region is most known for the Bridge over the River Kwai – while a sad reminder of the brutality suffered, the beautifully preserved WWII cemetary provides for poignant reflection. Staying for a few nights here by the river is a lovely base from which to explore the area.
