Always invigorating, endlessly frenetic, and ever-surprising, Bangkok is an absolute treat.
With a population north of 11 million, to the untrained eye the sprawling Thai capital is an indistinct urban mass. Look a little closer however, and you’ll find the ‘Big Mango’ is in fact a city of neighborhoods.
The city’s best hotels are concentrated in a handful of urban districts, each with their own character and appeal. The shopping and dining picture can change dramatically from street to street. Key sightseeing spots and attractions are found all over. As it would be when visiting any of the world’s great cities, where to stay and where to dedicate your time in Bangkok is a matter of great discussion.
In anticipation of your trip to Bangkok, our resident Asia expert Luke has put together a guide to its key districts, and how each might be the right one for you.
