Bangkok Tourism

Bangkok Exotic Bangkok is a city that is really larger than life. The frenetic pace, heat, traffic and lack of personal space can be overpowering, but the sheer dynamism is intoxicating.

An exotic blend of the traditional East with the modern West, Bangkok’s every street has a surprise in hold for everyone. Ramshackle buildings next to exotic temples surrounded by delightful gardens, which in turn are overlooked by modern hotels and offices. Bangkok has emerged as a major world city with the traffic to match, as well as the must needed mobile phones and designer clothes that are a prominent feature on the streets. The chaos on the streets is mirrored by the busy traffic on the Chao Phraya River, which dissects the city and is crisscrossed by long-tailed boats, river taxis and small rowing boats, all somehow missing each other.

But the traditional Thai life is never far away. The saffron-robed monks can still be seen collecting their alms, while just moments from the city centre huge communities live in stilt houses by the river, eking out a living using skills that have not changed in centuries.

In 1782, Bangkok became the capital of then Siam, following the destruction of the previous capital, Ayutthaya. Bangkok is not the name used by the Thais. It is Krung Thep, which is a very shortened version of its extremely long full title. The absolute rule of the monarchy ended in 1932 when it was replaced by a constitutional monarchy. To this day, the monarchy is regarded with an almost religious reverence and it is an offence, punishable by imprisonment, to insult any member of the royal family. His Majesty King Bhumibol is the longest reigning monarch in the world, and has been in power in 1946.

With the end of absolute monarchy, Thailand moved towards democracy but this has been interrupted by the military, which has often staged coups in protest at government policies. The role of the military in politics has now been curtailed but the 1990s saw governments come and go although there has been stability since the government took on the job of tackling the economic crisis in the late 1990s.

Thailand is a tropical country so it is hot most the year, the best time to visit is between November and March, during the dry season. During the rainy season, humidity is extremely high and the downpours are short but violent and the streets of Bangkok often get flooded.
