is the biggest center for backpackers in Asia. Due to its location,
facilities & the fact that it is the main transport hub in
Asia,with a wide range of cheap flight and overland options,
many travelers return again & again.
Bangkok has a diverse mix of attractions - temples, museums and
historic buildings, atmospheric local markets, delicious food
and an exciting night life. One of the highlights is a boat trip
through the city along the river or Bangkok's many canals. On
route you will have a fascinating glimpse of daily Bangkok life.
Bangkok however has several negative points,
it has a major traffic problem, it is so bad that it can take
you hours to get across the city. Traffic also contributes to
Bangkok's other major problem - pollution. Many street workers
such as traffic police wear gas masks. Recently new train system,
BTS(Bangkok Transit System) Sky train and many new highways are
constructed. However none of those actually could have solved
the traffic problems.
