Bangkok, also known as the "Sin City of Asia", is a thriving metropolis in Thailand. With a population of over 8 million residents, tourists will never run out of things to do in Bangkok.

Every tourist should visit the Wat Pho. The Wat Pho is known as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha and is one of many must see historical sites. The temple currently sits on 20 acres of land and was built nearly 200 hundred years before Bangkok became the capital of Thailand. Because the Buddha statue itself is 15 meters high and 46 meters long, visitors often wonder how the statue was moved into the temple in the first place.

Because Bangkok is famous for its numerous historical attractions and temples, Asian history buffs would do well to obtain a map of the city. Maps will often highlight some of the most important Bangkok activities, temples, and historical sites any person must visit on their trip. Many Bangkok excursions offer tours of the city that include major temple sites.

There are a number of Bangkok tours at your disposal One of the most notable being the Apsara Dinner Cruise. The Apsara Dinner Cruise is a perfect way for friends and family to enjoy beautiful sunset views of the city from the Chao Phraya River while chowing down on the some of the most delicious food available in the metropolis. Each night, temples along the river are glowing with thousands of lights, making for an especially romantic experience.

Bangkok is known for its vibrant nightlife. After a romantic dinner cruise, take your significant other to Royal City Avenue. Also known as RCA, Royal City Avenue is the absolute center of the nightlife scene in Bangkok and one of the top clubbing districts in the country. Night owls can head down there to enjoy some of the best live bands and disc jockeys in the country. Because RCA is an officially designated entertainment district, party-goers can be sure they will find something to do there every night of the week.

Because there are a wide variety of attractions in Bangkok, a trip around southeast Asia would not be complete without a stop in this wonderful city. The amount of places you can visit and local spots that offer experiences of a lifetime will make you want to come back to Bangkok again and again.
