It s Easy to Fall in Love With Bangkok

After a week-long vacation in this marvelous city, I have to confess that it’s easy to fall in love with Bangkok. I had heard a lot about the fascinating cultures, hi-tech lifestyle, awe-inspiring Buddhist temples, eye-catching flea markets and insane nightlife in Bangkok, and was extreme curious to explore the “City of Angles”. These overload imaginations were ringing all around me, even when I was in aircraft.

I landed at the Savarnbhumi Airport, and as soon as I got off the aircraft, the city began to lure me. The newly designed Bangkok Airport has a lot to tell about: from awesome modern facilities to incredible use of innovative technologies. But what astounded me the most was the architecture where an estimable attempt has been made to integrate Thai art into contemporary styles of building. Great Thai paintings on the walls look just awesome.

I hired an aircon taxi, perhaps the most comfy and easiest way to get around in the city, to reach to my hotel. Although I already had an idea about how welcoming & warm Thai people are, this time I experienced it myself. The way hotel staff treated me on arrival was appraisable. It was a simple 4-star hotel of the city, but quite impressive in terms of structure, hospitability as well as modern comforts. Spacious rooms were equipped with several modern amenities like wi-fi internet, a half-wall TV screen, remote-controlled lighting and a large bathroom.

As it was pre-planned, I ended day one exploring glittering Bangkok, by which I mean the shining temples, palaces and historical ruins showcasing city’s wealthy past and cultures. First of all, I get lured by the Wat Arun, an age-old temple on west coast of Chao Phraya River. Amazing architectural beauty coupled with finest of craftsmanship, this temple is literally one of the most spectacular temples in Thailand. It houses an imposing steeple of height over 70 meters, which is astoundingly decorated with tiny pieces of colored glasses. Wat Mahathat is another fine example of Buddhism and grand architecture. This one of the oldest temples in Thailand is a major center for the study of Buddhism and meditation. Some other structures of grand spiritual significance here include Wat Phra Khae, Wat Traimit and Wat Saket. When you’re in Bangkok, it’s almost impossible not to be impressed the scale and ambition of architecture of the famous Great Palace. Unarguably, the city’s most dazzling and spectacular historical landmark, the Grand Palace has become the signature of Bangkok just like Eiffel Tower in Peris and Statue of Liberty in New York.

You can’t afford to miss out shopping & nightlife, when you’re in Bangkok. Famous for its lively shopping malls, amazing flea markets and local street-side shopping, the city gives you endless opportunity to get your bags full. The most famous areas for shopping are Chatuchuk Market, Asiatique Square and Siam Square. Taking a tour Khao San Road gives you a nightlife experience you have never gone through.

For those inclined towards history & cultures, this city has a long list of places to visit on. I visited to the Bangkok National Museums and Bank of Thailand Museum, both are awesomely gracious. I spent three days in Bangkok, and then headed to Pattaya. I enjoyed there a full day on its lovely beaches and an overnight stay. There is a lot more (beyond this description) that I experienced in Bangkok and Pattaya, and which blew my mind completely. You’ll get the rest of experience in my next article.
