With its hulking skyscrapers and ultramodern hotels, Bangkok is one of the most contemporary cities in Asia. Thankfully, it never lost its Thai charm, with the museums, temples, food and, of course, people that make Bangkok both quintessentially Thai and culturally diverse. One great way to think about your exploration of Bangkok is to traverse the streets for a taste of the modern, but to get a feel for the historical, more old-style Bangkok, take to the canals.

Wat Pho is a must-see, famous for its huge (46 meters by 15 meters) gold-plated reclining Buddha and renowned massage school. You will also see over 1,000 additional images of Buddha, mostly from the ruins of the former capitals of Ayutthaya and Sukhothai. As for the massage school, a traditional Thai massage alone is worth the trip to Wat Pho. Many of the world's celebrities and dignitaries have come here in need of a break from the hectic pace of their famous lives.

Enjoy the freshest and most delicious pad Thai and tom young goong in the world. And the satay sold by street vendors is a delicacy that should not be missed.
