Why most people think Bangkok, Thailand, is bad, is they only hear the bad stories. People who have been there and have had a bad experience, for example they were mugged while they were in a questionable neighbourhood, speak out quicker than the ones who had a wonderful vacation, shopping, relaxing or otherwise.

If one would take the time to look, plan and really take the country and people for what they are; hard working, friendly people, they will have the best time ever. It doesn't matter if you are from the United States or Europe, if you act normal, shop normal, explore normal like you would do in your own country or city, you would see the wonders this city has to offer. Be it the many Buddhist temples, or the many shopping malls, everyone can find peace in the way they want to.

I for myself have been there a few times, and I like to go there because of the peace and nature. Just outside the busy city centre is a wealth of nature to be found. You can even ride bikes through small villages in the outsides of this big metro pole. Or take a long-tail boat-ride, it is certainly something you have never seen before.

If you are going to Bangkok, you first visit the Suvarnabhumi Airport, a big glass collection of buildings that looks very modern. This airport has only recently been build to accommodate more and more travellers coming to Thailand. Many stay in Bangkok itself, but some go on transit to other countries or other cities in Thailand, like the South for the beach. If you decide to stay in Bangkok, a quick taxi ride is all that stands between you and the big city.

Stay in one of the 5 star hotels or in a modest hotel. For the backpacking community there are many guesthouses available for low prices. Just make sure you visit Khao San Road where a lot of people of different nationalities are. Be sure to visit the temples too, the standard maps list the most important ones. The Lying Buddha is worth a visit at least once. You will see when you are there for the reason why.

Next time we will go further on the places to see when in Bangkok.
