Travel Tips to Bangkok (BKK)
Bangkok – city between the modern and the traditional
Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, is a fascinating world metropolis. 8.25 million inhabitants make the city very lively and offer hospitality and helpfulness rarely seen elsewhere. Thais grow up with very strict rules of upbringing and highly developed values. Respect for elders goes along with friendly, calm interactions with each other. Aside from the sellers in the marketplaces, raised voices are seldom heard. Hospitable locals and a year-round warm climate mean that a flight to Bangkok is perfect for a fantastic holiday.
Enjoy a cocktail with a panoramic view
The Sirocco Bar on the sixty-third floor of the Lebua at State Tower is a real highlight of the city. Along with delicious drinks, you can enjoy a fantastic panoramic view over all Bangkok. Trying the popular “hangovertini” cocktail is recommended. It is a mix of apple juice, green tea liqueur, Martini, rosemary and honey and provides pure taste pleasure. It gets its name from the film “The Hangover”. Filming for the sequel took place on the rooftop terrace of the Lebua hotel. The building is also the highest outdoor restaurant complex in the world. Beware though; visitors to these gastronomy establishments will need evening wear!
A jade emerald Buddha
You should allow plenty of time to enjoy the intensive pleasures of the magnificent temple installations of Wat Phra Kaew. There are 100 temples and statues to be admired here, including the famous Emerald Buddha. Many stories surround the Buddha; which incidentally is not made of emerald but of jade, and which is the country’s national shrine. For example, it was supposed to have been taken to the city of Chiang Mai by King Sam Fang Kaen, but the elephant designated to carry it refused to go on shortly before reaching the city and instead took the road to Lampang. This was an omen that the ruler found he could not escape from.
Complete shopping and leisure fun
The Siam Paragon Centre is the most exclusive shopping complex in Bangkok. The location where it is situated is very grandiose in itself. It was once the royal park of the Lotus Pond Palace. Exclusively luxury shops from all countries have established themselves over a total area of 500,000 square metres. Since prices in Thailand are often below the average, countless visitors from Japan and China go there to shop. Additionally, there are numerous restaurants, 16 cinemas, 52 bowling alleys and a gym in the huge building. To perfect the rich diversity there is the “Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World” aquarium on the two lowest floors with over 30,000 creatures.
