Bangkok - Thewet & Dusit (PDF Chapter)
This is the Thewet & Dusit chapter from Lonely Planet’s Bangkok guidebook.
Thewet has the hectic, buzzy feel often associated with Bangkok: relentless traffic, throngs of civil servants and school kids, and a soggy market. Dusit, on the other hand, is possibly Bang-kok’s most orderly district, home to tree-lined avenues and regal monuments.
