The capital of Thailand, Bangkok is the gateway to Southeast Asia and the ultimate backpacker city. Travellers here only need to visit the famous Khaosan Road to see why – it’s sea of neon-lit signs, food stalls, packed bars and market stalls selling everything from a scorpion on a stick to a fake Rolex. It's always full of backpackers soaking up the atmosphere or drinking a Singha whilst discussing their travels. With plenty of hostels in Bangkok, you’ll never be too far away from the action. Haggling at a local market is expected, taking a wild tuk-tuk ride around the city is a unique experience and sampling the cheap but oh-so-delicious street food is a must. Also take the time to visit the Grand Palace, Wat Pho and its giant reclining Buddha, and the famous floating market. Bangkok is ‘same same, but different’, go and visit and find out why!
