Thailand - Bangkok & Around (Chapter)
This is the Bangkok chapter from Lonely Planet’s Thailand guidebook.
Bangkok has emerged as a modern city with an ever-expanding public-transport system, air-conditioned mega-malls and international-standard restaurants. But this doesn’t mean that there’s no more of the ‘real’ Bangkok. The Royal Palace and Wat Phra Kaew still sparkle just as they did more than 200 years ago, and the Skytrain has had little impact on the shophouses of Banglamphu, the eateries of Chinatown or the canals of Thonburi.
- Skipping between sightseeing spots aboard the Chao Phraya Express

- restaurants & accommodation
- Learning to make authentic Thai dishes at one of Bangkok’s numerous cooking schools
