Bangkok: the first place to visit in South East Asia – A city of transition

If you are a person who travels often, you would have ended up in Bangkok at least for a half an hour layover. This familiarity, if nothing else, is why Bangkok should be the first place you visit in your South East Asia explorations. The other reasons are as follows.

Bangkok was once dubbed the “Venice of East”. There are little waterways running through the city centre for you to take a leisurely ride in, admiring and appreciating the city. Bangkok is a perfect amalgamation of culture and comfort, thus the perfect place for you to adjust to the new environment of South East Asia. In terms of comfort, you will be able to find Bed & Breakfasts, Room Rentals, as well as Serviced Suites. Bangkok has a wide array of accommodation options ranging from high-end comfort like Anantara Baan Rajprasong Bangkok Serviced Suites to thecosy comfort of home stays. Commuting is as easy as hailing a taxi or ordering a cab from a global taxi app, and best of all, you can arrange excursions to any part of South East Asia from Bangkok. When it comes to culture, there are areas of the city that still have buildings from the olden days, temples that are standing testimony to a great culture, and of course, the Grand Palace. Once the residence of Thai Royalty, the Grand Palace has now become a key attraction of the city and would give you a taste of what is to come in your travels across the land. Bangkok is also the best place to start for those who are new to the Asian culture. While quite liberal in the dress codes, Bangkok has strict rules when it comes to visiting places of cultural and religious importance. Thus, you will be able to amass culture-appropriate clothing. The fact that Bangkok is one of the biggest shopping destinations in the world will definitely help you in this endeavour.
