With so many great hotels in Bangkok Thailand it can be difficult to pin-point the very best one for your needs. We’ve scoured through all hotels in Bangkok Thailand in order to bring you just that, the very best, especially when it comes to spacious rooms and group travel. Bangkok is a great place to travel for business or pleasure and ranks first in the world as the most visited city. Before we get you there, though, let’s take a look at a little background information on the city itself.
Harboring a population of around 8.5 million people, Bangkok is Thailand’s capital and most populous city. Dating back to the early 15th century, Bangkok has grown from a village, to a fortified customs outpost, to a town and eventually to the bustling metropolis that it is today. International trade, first with China and then with the Western world, contributed to the city’s expanse. Allied with the Japanese during World War II, Bangkok was subjected to Allied bombing, but was re-built by America post-war, when it became a popular rest and relaxation destination for military personnel. Thereafter, Japanese businesses took over investments and expansion continued rapidly, but was stalled by the 1997 Asian financial crisis.
Bangkok enjoys a tropical savanna climate, with average highs hovering around 90 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year, and average lows staying in the 70s. The city’s record low is 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Architecture, attractions and city life create an adventurous atmosphere, with royal palaces, temples, museums, shopping malls, restaurants, night-life and yes, sex tourism, being many of the main draws. Bangkok’s major points of interest include Sathon, Giant Swing, Victory Monument, Rama VIII Bridge, Wat Arun, Grand Palace, Royal Plaza, Lumphini Park, Chinatown, MahaNakhon, Khao San Road, Siam Discovery, Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, Museum of Contemporary Art, National Stadium and Hua Mak Sports Complex, to name a few. When traveling to Bangkok it’s important to watch out for scams, overcharging and dual pricing, an example being the gem scam. Throughout this post you will find only the most reputable and highly regarded local businesses in order to help you avoid such potential scams. Now that we have some background information on the city, it’s time to get you to hotels in Bangkok Thailand that we think you will absolutely love!
