About Travel to Bangkok

Bangkok, capital of Thailand, is a large city with 8 million registered inhabitants and around another 4 to 6 million unregistered residents. The other notable feature of Bangkok is its diversity.

Bangkok is a City of Contrasts

The city has its older and newer parts, lots of different ethnic and culture groups concentrated in distinct enclaves, and a very noticeable gap between the living conditions of the city’s richer and poorer residents. In Bangkok an estimated 1 in 6 people live in a slum. At the other end of the scale, the city’s richer residents live in modern apartments and large houses within walled compounds in a level of luxury rivalling that of the super rich in London, Paris and New York.

To fully appreciate Bangkok you need to travel around and see the different parts of the city, although the most famous of Bangkok’s tourist attractions are nearly all crammed into two parts of the city, Rattanakosin Island and China Town.

Rattanakosin Island

Bangkok was founded in 1872 when the new king, King Rama I, decided to relocate the royal court to the other side of Chao Phraya River. The part of city where a new palace was constructed became known as Rattanakosin Island because canals were constructed creating a barrier of water between it and the surrounding area.

Bangkok’s Grand Palace, and several of Thailand’s most important temples including Wat Po and Wat Suthat Thepwararam, are located in Rattanakosin Island, and directly across the river from Rattanakosin Island is the picturesque Wat Arun.

China Town

Immediately to the south east of Rattanakosin Island is Bangkok’s China Town area. China Town is one of the most exciting parts of Bangkok. Until the middle of the 20th Century, China Town was the commercial centre of the city. The city’s economy has changed and richer people have largely moved elsewhere, however, China Town still has thriving markets and a lively night time dining scene, particularly on the Yaowarat Road.

Among the places to visit in China Town are:

  • Hua Lamphong Railway Station, built in 1916 and until recently the main train terminus in Bangkok.
  • Sampeng Lane Market, which stretches more than a kilometre along narrow crowded passage ways.
  • Wat Traimitr Witayaram Worawihan, which houses a 3 metres tall statue of the Lord Buddha made from solid gold and weighing 5,500 kg.
  • Wat Mangkon Kamalawat, which is Thailand’s most important Chinese Buddhist temple.
  • Plaeng Nam Road, which is famous for its old fashioned shops and authentic Thai-Chinese cuisine.
