One of the most celebrated tourist cities in the world, Bangkok is where many high-rise shopping malls and entertainment spots lie amid Buddhist temples. It is the most populous city in Thailand, as well as an influential city in terms of Thailand’s economy, politics, education, and media. Famous for cheap shopping, amazing massage, and vibrant nightlife, Bangkok is an exciting destination that has been highly praised by tourists around the world.

Several tourist areas in the city are:

Sukhumvit: As the commercial centre of Bangkok, Sukhumvit is filled with international hotels, high-rise shopping malls and exciting spots for party-goers. Highly popular with expats and the affluent, many landmarks can be found here. For families and explorers, there are Dinosaur Planet Theme Park, Ban Kamthieng House Museum and Terminal 21 – an interesting shopping mall that features the themes of several famous cities around the world.

For excitement seekers, head towards Soi Cowboy, a collection of the most visited bars, pubs, and clubs in the vicinity. Owing to its bustling nature, Sukhumvit is well-suited for business travellers, nightlife seekers, and shopping lovers.

Silom: Very much similar to Sukhumvit, Silom is another commercial district of Bangkok. The place seems serious and industrious during the daytime when most people only come here for working. However, as the night opens up, life in Silom gets exciting with night markets and nightclubs starting their motions. Some well-known destinations in the area include Patpong Night Market and Lebua State Tower. Silom would be ideal for nightlife seekers and night market lovers.

As the downtown areas of Bangkok, Sukhumvit and Silom tend to offer more luxurious options for accommodations. Many world-famous hotel chains are located here. That being said, some lower-end options including hostels and inns can also be found.

Khaosan: Colloquially known as the Old City, Khaosan is where you can find most of the classic attractions of Bangkok. Stepping away from the hustle of downtown life, visitors will find solace in a good number of temples (called “Wat” locally), museums and galleries.

The most famous names include Bangkok National Museum, The Grand Palace, and Wat Phra Kaew – the most significant Buddhist temple of the Thai people. Khaosan is a good destination for culture seekers, families, sightseers and older travellers.

Ratchadaphisek (or Ratchada): Well known as a more affordable nightlife spots, especially for locals, Ratchadaphisek has risen in popularity in recent years owing to the establishment of the Thailand Cultural Centre, where various Thai and international performances take place all year round. Many food markets, pubs, and bars are easily found in this area. Ratchdaphisek is a good place to chill out, especially for backpack tourists and nightlife seekers.

Both Khaosan and Ratchadaphisek offers a wide variety of accommodations, ranging from affordable hostels and backpackers’ inns to extravagant, internationally recognised hotels.

Getting around Bangkok is not a difficult task, and is usually very affordable. Choices for public transport include Skytrain (BTS), underground trail (MRT) and tuk-tuk (a kind of local mini-van). Most places mentioned above are easily accessible using public transport.

Bangkok offers lots to see in terms of culture and cuisine. The Grand Palace is, of course, stunning, despite the hoards of tourists. The air isn't the freshest and it's hot as hell, but that's how it is. People are pretty friendly, which I appreciated.

If you like big cities, and are street savvy, Bangkok is great for you.... super cheap to do everything, but if you want nice people and a laid back atmosphere, Chiangmai is where you need to go.
