I am staying at the Intercontinental Bankok. Welcome to the most exciting city in the world.
Color, culture, commerce, creativity, we have it all. I am going to take you on my personal insider tours of this incredible corner of Asia and Thailand so why wait, let us go.
The first thing to explore is the ability to get yourself around town. Being in a creative vehicles can make the travel and adventure. Myself, I always use the motorcycle everyday. There is nothing faster than two wheels on these streets. If you see him wearing the orange jacket, he is the one. He is the motorcycle service. Not much removed from the motorbike is the iconic tuktuk.
There are more than 50,000 tuktuks in Bangkok. They are very fast. But in my mind the most elegant way to travel through the hub of Bangkok is on riverboats. Traveling on the swift moving river of Janapriya is as fun as it is practical.
Thailand has a global reputation for its incredible cuisine. The best place to start is with a visit through the streets. The soup is very delicious and very nice. When you eat it hot with the rice, it is very nice. If you wish for a more relaxing location for Thai cuisine, I always recommend Banthai Nipa Restaurant. The menus here are traditional. It is one of the most affordable upscale restaurant in the city and when you want to mix the fine dining for Thai meals with the experience of our nation’s culture, performance dining takes place throughout the city. Get in touch with me and I will send you through the most current and interesting show.
Exploring simple Bangkok streets and neighborhoods can lead to numerous adventures. Before I release the birds, I have to pray or make wish, the wish will come true when I release the birds.
I clean my hair on the face by the typical Chinese style. I do not how I look. We are now at the Grand Palace. This is the most spectacular architecture in Thailand. Inside you can see the emerald Buddha. It is the most important for Thai people and the relaxing mood can be had at what? The ideal setting for one of the cities iconic attractions, the Reclining Buddha section is very famous and very recommended to visit when you are in Bangkok.
The first school of massaged opened herein the 19th Century. You can let the students take you to an even more relaxing state.
Discovering our amazing culture through the art of puppetry is a unique insight to the religious fable of Asia. For original production of a more sporting nature, Thai Boxing is exciting. See me for arranging a ringside experience and witnessing the physical thrill of the serpentine chime can be heard at the Red Cross Snake Farm. You can touch some snakes but leave the cobra alone.
That is my brief intermediate tour of my world class city, Bangkok.
