About the area:
Thailand’s capital city of Bangkok is a fantastic place to visit. It is the travel hub for the whole Southeast Asian region and a must. Most people come back and forth if they visit the different regions of Thailand.
There is so much to see in Bangkok that you can easily spend a week in this city to visit all the interesting sights in and around Bangkok. Bangkok's temples, despite being in the center of a busy metropolis, are some of the finest in all of Asia. The museums in Bangkok are mostly devoted to Thai art and architecture, but the National Gallery is a place to view art from other countries. Be sure to see the National Museum and the Vimanmek Teak Mansion, as well as the Shed of the Royal Barges—a one-of-a-kind experience.
