Bangkok is a beautiful amalgamation of modern times and the grandeur and glory of its illustrious past. And all of them have a story to tell.

Visit the old city for a look at the Grand Palace, which undoubtedly is the most famous landmark of the city. When in the old city, do spend an evening at Khao San Road, home to sleek pubs cocktail bars and eclectic stalls. Wat Pho is another place to spend a few hours, when in the old city. Apart from the gigantic statue of the reclining Buddha, Wat Pho is also famous for traditional Thai massages. As a matter of fact, in Thailand, Wat Pho is considered the leading school of massage.
Also don’t forget to visit the Chatuchak Weekend Market, the sheer size and diverse collection of merchandise is enough to put you in awe.
