Bangkok for me is that rare place: a big city that's also my favorite spot in the entire country. It's enough to love the city for its food -- pork-rice and grilled chicken and fresh passionfruit juice on the street, dirt-cheap pad thai in food-court kitchens, fiery Isan cuisine, and excellent Western grub if you find yourself tired of noodles. Still, once you've eaten your way into a larger waistband, there's more than enough to keep you busy: astonishing temples like the Reclining Buddha at Wat Pho, or the fantastic Khmer-style Wat Arun across the river; or fabulous malls to people-watch and keep cool in (you get to appreciate their air-con in the Bangkok heat!) It's a great city for nightlife, and one of the world's best traveller centers. It's gritty and hectic and crowded, to be sure, but each time you come back you'll find you love it a little more.

my family is here. So I visit Thailand every year! is great!
the only had thing is the weather (always hot and humid), the traffic and the air quality.
if you can, use the metro system - BTS. it's fast but super crowded during work days.
amazing food. :)

One of the world's truly great cities and one of my favorite regular destinations. The seedy image it has among some Westerners is underserved. Bangkok certainly has a dark underbelly but only if that's what you look for. Great sights, phenomenal food. and exceedingly friendly people.

Land of Smiles! I luv to visit Bangkok. Many things to do other than sightseeing! Vibrant nightlife. @ Baan Klang Num 2, it is a riverside restaurant which serves great seafood at affordable prices. Frequented by locals mostly. A rare gem discovered as we were invited by a local friend for sumptuous dinner. After which, you can buy loaves of bread and feed catfishes in the river. I was told that these fishes are released by the temple opp the bridge.

Bangkok-I just love everything about this city: the smell, the humidity, the street food, the fruit, the temples, the river. The quintessential first stop to any Southeast Asian backpacking trip.

I'm in a little bit of a Bangkok frenzy. Went there Jan '10, went back Jan '11 and Jan '12. Amazing city, assuming you like to eat--street food is phenomenal. The taxis are bright pink. People dress their dogs in sweaters when it dips below 80 degrees. The Skytrain makes everything fairly accessible, and the city now gives out free bikes to tourists. Oh, and a slick new fast train connects the airport to the center.

I've been to this city maybe 20 times over the past 15 years, and never get tired of it. First, the street food is phenomenal -- spicy, fresh, hot and cheap. Second, the Buddhist temples scattered throughout the city are oases of meditative calm (and in the case of Wat Po, also a Thai massage school). Third, whenever you get tired of being jammed up in traffic, you can take a water taxi along the river and feel like you've passed back into time by a few decades or a century. Fourth, the markets are also incredible, whether you're looking for a T-shirt or a gold amulet.
