Beautiful city views and exceptional cuisine await those who travel to Bangkok, the capital of South East Asia. Spend a day cruising the canals with a boat trip or take a walk around the city to explore the vast array of Buddhist temples including Wat Kalayanamit and Wat Suthat. There are various places to eat but those who want to try local produce can eat at places like Ruen Mallika which serves spicier foods or Or Tor Kor, a food market serving dishes from northern Thailand. Every trip abroad is exciting and new so it pays to be as safe as possible in a new city.
Take precautions when visiting Bangkok
Although Bangkok is a relatively large place to visit, it is also quite safe. However, there are some risks to bear in mind. Motorcyclists ride on pavements and on the road at great speed and many go through red lights often. Be careful when you step off of buses and stepping onto the roads as they do not give passengers the right of way. Scams are rife in Thailand and in a tourist resort like Bangkok; it is easy to be sucked in by friendly tourist workers. Just say no if you are unsure of anything and stick to tours by reputable companies, such as your holiday provider. Try to flag a taxi outside of the main tourist spots and make sure you insist on the meter to ensure you don’t over pay. If you book a package holiday and you sustain an injury during your flight, transfer or at your hotel, you have a right to compensation if you booked with a UK holiday provider.
