How to go

Visitors can travel by bus to Bangkok from Thailand’s neighboring countries with varying levels of ease.
From Malaysia, one can cross by bus into Thailand through various border checkpoints in Songkhla, Yala, and Narathiwat provinces, although most busses will head to the hub of bus travel into, out of, and around southern Thailand, Hat Yai. From Hat Yai there are direct busses to Bangkok.
Most busses from Laos originate in Vientiane and cross the Mekong River to the Thai border town of Nong Khai, where it is possible to arrange for a bus transfer to Bangkok.
The primary route on a Cambodian bus to Thailand is across the border at the respective towns of Poipet and Aranyaprathet. From Aranyaprathet one can easily arrange bus or minibus transport to Bangkok.

At present, the only standard train service to Bangkok is via the Malaysian border town of Butterworth. Travelers from Singapore and Kuala Lumpur can travel by train to Bangkok, but not without stopping to change trains. The journey from Singapore can last up to 48 hours as two changes of trains are required and there are numerous stops along the way to Bangkok.
First class sleeper cars can make a train trip to Bangkok more enjoyable, though comfort and convenience come at a price; one can travel the Eastern & Oriental Express, a throw-back colonial-style luxury train that services Butterworth and Bangkok on a once weekly schedule.

Bangkok serves as a major international hub for air travel, with the new Suvarnabhumi International Airport (BKK) hosting over 40 million visitors and transit passengers each year. Dozens of domestic and international air carriers bring passengers to Bangkok from most major cities in Asia, Europe, North America, and Australia.



In addition to outstanding dining and shopping, the Suvarnabhumi Airport features a transportation center that provides visitors with easy transfer from the airport to destinations throughout the kingdom as well as rail, bus, taxi, and limousine service to all districts in the Bangkok metropolitan area. The city center is only 30 kilometers west of the airport and features a new electric rail line that provides easy access to the city center.
The former primary airport, Don Muang, located 20 kilometers north of the city center, no longer services international flights, functioning as a minor domestic airport and airstrip for charter flights to and from Bangkok.

泰國首都曼谷,泰國人稱她為「天使之城」(Krung Thep)。作為泰國政治、經濟、文化、美食和精神之都,曼谷兼具古色古香的魅力和現代化的舒適方便。她雖然有時出現一點混亂,但總是帶著親切的微笑。

在泰國度假旅遊的人士,無一例外,必定會前往首都曼谷一遊,也必定被曼谷的龐大面積和眾多景點迷住。曼谷確實是一個令人感動的城市。自從國王拉瑪一世在1782年定都於此後,曼谷歷經兩個多世紀的迅速發展,今天已成為一個國際大都會、一個擁有一千多萬人口的21 世紀大城市。

 

這個一望無際的城市和那些繁忙得有點混亂的街道可能令人起初有點生畏,但多花一些時間後便會很快迷上曼谷各種各樣的景點。從奪目耀眼、富有泰國佛教歷史內涵的寺廟,到每逢假日必去的現代化購物商場,實在不勝枚舉。無論是順道到此一遊的遊客,或是專程來曼谷度假的人士,保證會稱心如意、樂而忘返。


曼谷著名景點多以大皇宮為首選。光輝閃耀的大皇宮聳立於曼谷拉達那哥欣Rattanakosin)舊城區的中心,毗鄰最壯觀的寺廟,包括玉佛寺、黎明寺和臥佛寺。這些標誌性的目的地都是前往曼谷觀賞泰國獨特文化傳統的熱門景點。

 

曼谷有寺廟400多間,分佈全市各處。遊客不難在早上看到穿上橘黃色僧衣的僧侶,四出化緣,到處行走,或沿昭拍耶河(又稱「王者之河」)而行,途經舊城區和黎明寺。

與昭拍耶河連接的運河,縱橫交錯,使曼谷贏得「東方威尼斯」的昵稱。乘船遊覽昭拍耶河,參觀水上市場,或到各城市的「後巷」運河 klongs)探索,也是別有趣味的曼谷之遊。

曼谷其他「必然選擇」的歷史和文化景點包括國家博物館,維曼默博物館(Vimanmek Mansion)和白菜園宮(Suan Pakkad Palace它們都是收藏美術作品或國寶的地方

離開曼谷的歷史地區,還有很多其他景點,讓您的曼谷假日充滿愉悅和難忘的回憶。沿是隆路(Silom Road)和素坤逸路(Sukhumvit Road)穿過的現代化市中心,熱浪逼人、交通難以忍受的情況已成過去。便捷的現代電氣鐵路系統,包括高架鐵路和地鐵,已使來往曼谷各處變成一種享受。MRT BTS 電氣鐵路系統直接連接酒店與現代化商場和傳統市場,如翟道翟(Chatuchak JJ) 週末市場,把曼谷購物提升到世界級地位。

當然,沒有經歷過充滿活力的泰國夜生活,就不算是一個完整的泰國假期。在這段豐富多彩的時間裡,您甚至可能偶爾看到大象在曼谷街上游蕩呢!

曼谷既擁有豐富而獨特的文化遺產,也擁有現代大都市的繁華和活力。總之,無論您來泰國度假的目的是讓自己沉醉在泰國的獨特文化中,或只是到曼谷購物商場去滿足您的購物慾,您都能得到無窮的旅遊體驗和許多美好的時刻。

Key Tips

  • 凡幫襯三輪電單車(tuk tuk), 珠寶店和裁縫店,特別是在熱門旅遊點範圍內的,都要謹防詐騙。請記住,坐車是沒有免費的。
  • 最好截停行駛中的的士(紅燈表示空車);這些的士通常依收費錶計價,而停泊路旁的的士一般都要求較高的固定車資,或讓您受騙。
  • 每年的6月至9月是季風季節,雨勢通常來得又急又猛,尤其是在下午。帶備足夠的鞋襪和一把傘是明智之舉。
  • Located in the heart of Southeast Asia, Bangkok attracts millions of visitors each year, including tourists and business travelers. To cater to such a diverse multitude of guests, Bangkok features the widest variety and quality of places to stay in Thailand, if not the entire world. The vast range of accommodation in Bangkok includes some of worlds most acclaimed hotels as well as entire neighborhoods of budget backpacker hostels and guesthouses.
    While many luxury hotels line the Chao Phraya riverside, where rooms and restaurants overlook the river, the sprawling city features numerous centers of commerce and areas dense with sightseeing attractions and a full range of accommodation options exists near each one. The districts of Siam, Silom, Sukhumvit, and historic Rattakosin each contain five star hotels, family-friendly mid-range accommodation, and a number of budget guesthouses. With a reputation for courteous service with a smile, Bangkok’s hotel staff will make you feel at home no matter what accommodation you choose, and the city’s efficient transportation infrastructure will make it easy to shop, dine, or sightsee from whichever area of the city you wish to lodge.

    As one of the premier tourist destinations in Thailand, Bangkok has innumerable attractions, including temples, markets, palaces, and museums, ensuring that visitors with any interest will find something to keep them entertained on their Bangkok holiday. The following are some of the most popular attractions in Bangkok:

    As one of the premier tourist destinations in Thailand, Bangkok has innumerable activities to participate in, ensuring that visitors with any interest will find something to keep them entertained on their Bangkok holiday. The following are some of the most popular activities on Bangkok:

    Bangkok is one of the premier cities for world-class cuisine. In addition to thousands of outstanding Thai restaurants from five-star to street stall, Bangkok features the entire spectrum of international cuisines, a byproduct of its cosmopolitan population. Expatriate Japanese, Indian, German, Italian, French, Lebanese, and people of nearly every other nationality have established authentic eateries throughout the city. Upscale food courts in many shopping plazas provide visitors with a wide selection of outstanding restaurants, and most hotels feature at least one Thai and one international dining establishment. An incipient food-tourism industry has even appeared on the scene; a testament to the outstanding variety and quality of cuisine available in Thailand’s capital city.


    Khao San Road:

    As one of the epicenters of tourist activity in Bangkok, Khao San Road features a great selection of food, from Thai street food to authentic Middle Eastern and western cuisine. While entrees in Thai restaurants along Khao San Road are hardly authentic -they tend to prepare their food with far less chili than most Thai restaurants do- menus are all in English and the prices are only moderately higher than in everyday Thai restaurants. On the street however, it’s possible to buy common Thai street food, such as fresh fruit, phad thai noodles, spring rolls, and various meats on a stick, all for under $1 US. For novices to Thai cuisine who are fearful for their stomachs, there are also chain branches of American fast food outlets Burger King, McDonalds and Subway, and for those with more refined palettes there are restaurants along nearby Phra Athit Road that serve authentic Thai cuisine to a predominately Thai student crowd.

    Silom Road:

    The Silom business district around Sala Daeng BTS station may be better known to visitors for the Patpong red-light district and its popular night market. However, Silom features an outstanding collection of Thai and international restaurants, both upscale and casual. In addition to many fine dining restaurants and moderately priced cafes, there are also many international chain restaurants and some of Bangkok’s best street-food dining venues, both on Silom and its side streets, particularly Soi Convent and Soi Sala Daeng.

    China Town:

    Yaowarat, Bangkok's Chinatown, is a one of the top dining neighborhoods in Bangkok, with a range of dining options from some of the cheapest food stalls, including fresh fruit vendors and roasted chestnuts stands, to some of the most expensive Chinese restaurants in the city. Along Yaowarat Road and the mazes of side streets leading away from it you will find dim sum, seafood, and many other Chinese eateries, particularly Cantonese dining establishments.
    In nearby Pahurat, just west of Chinatown, there is a large, long-established Indian community that sells Indian cuisine at a number of authentic restaurants.

    Siam Square:

    In addition to dozens of restaurants of every variety in the Siam Paragon, Siam Discovery, and Siam Center shopping malls, the streets of Siam Square contain numerous restaurants serving authentic Thai, Chinese, Italian, and even American food at the city’s only Hard Rock Café.

    Sukhumvit Road:

    With arguably the highest percentage of hotels in the city it’s hardly surprising that Sukhumvit Road is a literal smorgasbord of dining options. Beginning around Sukhumvit Soi 3 there are many Arab, Middle Eastern, and African restaurants, as well as a number of British and Irish Pubs. Sukhumvit 11 alone features Spanish, Indian, Australian, Italian, German, Mexican, Thai, and even fusion cuisine at the popular Bed Supperclub. Up near Sukhumvit Soi Asoke there are many Korean restaurants, and around Sukhumvit 24 and the Emporium Department store there are many authentic Japanese eateries. After hours, Sukhumvit Road becomes a street-food paradise with vendors lined up along the sidewalk between Sukhumvit 3 and 21, where all variety of Thai food is served until the early morning hours.

    Bangkok Riverside:

    Both along and upon the Chao Phraya River there are a host of upscale restaurants and authentic Thai restaurants. With some of the most spectacular sunset views in the city, restaurants along the river’s edge range from swanky hotel cafes and outdoor, rooftop dining rooms, to rustic riverside Thai restaurants and seafood specialists with live music. For additional romance, a dinner cruise aboard an old, teak, rice barge or a larger, more festive boat with live music are both popular experiences for enjoying both the river of kings and some outstanding Thai cuisine.

    As in most provincial capitals, Bangkok features a central market where locals can buy everything from groceries to household appliances and visitors can shop for clothing and other necessary supplies. In addition to the shopping venues listed below, there are often locally produced handicrafts available at central markets, the occasional night market, and from village workshops in smaller towns throughout the province.

    這個一望無際的城市和那些繁忙得有點混亂的街道可能令人起初有點生畏,但多花一些時間後便會很快迷上曼谷各種各樣的景點。從奪目耀眼、富有泰國佛教歷史內涵的寺廟,到每逢假日必去的現代化購物商場,實在不勝枚舉。無論是順道到此一遊的遊客,或是專程來曼谷度假的人士,保證會稱心如意、樂而忘返。


    曼谷著名景點多以大皇宮為首選。光輝閃耀的大皇宮聳立於曼谷拉達那哥欣Rattanakosin)舊城區的中心,毗鄰最壯觀的寺廟,包括玉佛寺、黎明寺和臥佛寺。這些標誌性的目的地都是前往曼谷觀賞泰國獨特文化傳統的熱門景點。

     

    曼谷有寺廟400多間,分佈全市各處。遊客不難在早上看到穿上橘黃色僧衣的僧侶,四出化緣,到處行走,或沿昭拍耶河(又稱「王者之河」)而行,途經舊城區和黎明寺。

    與昭拍耶河連接的運河,縱橫交錯,使曼谷贏得「東方威尼斯」的昵稱。乘船遊覽昭拍耶河,參觀水上市場,或到各城市的「後巷」運河 klongs)探索,也是別有趣味的曼谷之遊。

    曼谷其他「必然選擇」的歷史和文化景點包括國家博物館,維曼默博物館(Vimanmek Mansion)和白菜園宮(Suan Pakkad Palace它們都是收藏美術作品或國寶的地方

    當然,沒有經歷過充滿活力的泰國夜生活,就不算是一個完整的泰國假期。在這段豐富多彩的時間裡,您甚至可能偶爾看到大象在曼谷街上游蕩呢!

    曼谷既擁有豐富而獨特的文化遺產,也擁有現代大都市的繁華和活力。總之,無論您來泰國度假的目的是讓自己沉醉在泰國的獨特文化中,或只是到曼谷購物商場去滿足您的購物慾,您都能得到無窮的旅遊體驗和許多美好的時刻。

    Key Tips

  • 凡幫襯三輪電單車(tuk tuk), 珠寶店和裁縫店,特別是在熱門旅遊點範圍內的,都要謹防詐騙。請記住,坐車是沒有免費的。
  • 最好截停行駛中的的士(紅燈表示空車);這些的士通常依收費錶計價,而停泊路旁的的士一般都要求較高的固定車資,或讓您受騙。
  • 每年的6月至9月是季風季節,雨勢通常來得又急又猛,尤其是在下午。帶備足夠的鞋襪和一把傘是明智之舉。
  • Located in the heart of Southeast Asia, Bangkok attracts millions of visitors each year, including tourists and business travelers. To cater to such a diverse multitude of guests, Bangkok features the widest variety and quality of places to stay in Thailand, if not the entire world. The vast range of accommodation in Bangkok includes some of worlds most acclaimed hotels as well as entire neighborhoods of budget backpacker hostels and guesthouses.
    While many luxury hotels line the Chao Phraya riverside, where rooms and restaurants overlook the river, the sprawling city features numerous centers of commerce and areas dense with sightseeing attractions and a full range of accommodation options exists near each one. The districts of Siam, Silom, Sukhumvit, and historic Rattakosin each contain five star hotels, family-friendly mid-range accommodation, and a number of budget guesthouses. With a reputation for courteous service with a smile, Bangkok’s hotel staff will make you feel at home no matter what accommodation you choose, and the city’s efficient transportation infrastructure will make it easy to shop, dine, or sightsee from whichever area of the city you wish to lodge.

    As one of the premier tourist destinations in Thailand, Bangkok has innumerable attractions, including temples, markets, palaces, and museums, ensuring that visitors with any interest will find something to keep them entertained on their Bangkok holiday. The following are some of the most popular attractions in Bangkok:

    As one of the premier tourist destinations in Thailand, Bangkok has innumerable activities to participate in, ensuring that visitors with any interest will find something to keep them entertained on their Bangkok holiday. The following are some of the most popular activities on Bangkok:

    Bangkok is one of the premier cities for world-class cuisine. In addition to thousands of outstanding Thai restaurants from five-star to street stall, Bangkok features the entire spectrum of international cuisines, a byproduct of its cosmopolitan population. Expatriate Japanese, Indian, German, Italian, French, Lebanese, and people of nearly every other nationality have established authentic eateries throughout the city. Upscale food courts in many shopping plazas provide visitors with a wide selection of outstanding restaurants, and most hotels feature at least one Thai and one international dining establishment. An incipient food-tourism industry has even appeared on the scene; a testament to the outstanding variety and quality of cuisine available in Thailand’s capital city.


    Khao San Road:

    As one of the epicenters of tourist activity in Bangkok, Khao San Road features a great selection of food, from Thai street food to authentic Middle Eastern and western cuisine. While entrees in Thai restaurants along Khao San Road are hardly authentic -they tend to prepare their food with far less chili than most Thai restaurants do- menus are all in English and the prices are only moderately higher than in everyday Thai restaurants. On the street however, it’s possible to buy common Thai street food, such as fresh fruit, phad thai noodles, spring rolls, and various meats on a stick, all for under $1 US. For novices to Thai cuisine who are fearful for their stomachs, there are also chain branches of American fast food outlets Burger King, McDonalds and Subway, and for those with more refined palettes there are restaurants along nearby Phra Athit Road that serve authentic Thai cuisine to a predominately Thai student crowd.

    Silom Road:

    The Silom business district around Sala Daeng BTS station may be better known to visitors for the Patpong red-light district and its popular night market. However, Silom features an outstanding collection of Thai and international restaurants, both upscale and casual. In addition to many fine dining restaurants and moderately priced cafes, there are also many international chain restaurants and some of Bangkok’s best street-food dining venues, both on Silom and its side streets, particularly Soi Convent and Soi Sala Daeng.

    China Town:

    Yaowarat, Bangkok's Chinatown, is a one of the top dining neighborhoods in Bangkok, with a range of dining options from some of the cheapest food stalls, including fresh fruit vendors and roasted chestnuts stands, to some of the most expensive Chinese restaurants in the city. Along Yaowarat Road and the mazes of side streets leading away from it you will find dim sum, seafood, and many other Chinese eateries, particularly Cantonese dining establishments.
    In nearby Pahurat, just west of Chinatown, there is a large, long-established Indian community that sells Indian cuisine at a number of authentic restaurants.

    Siam Square:

    In addition to dozens of restaurants of every variety in the Siam Paragon, Siam Discovery, and Siam Center shopping malls, the streets of Siam Square contain numerous restaurants serving authentic Thai, Chinese, Italian, and even American food at the city’s only Hard Rock Café.

    Sukhumvit Road:

    With arguably the highest percentage of hotels in the city it’s hardly surprising that Sukhumvit Road is a literal smorgasbord of dining options. Beginning around Sukhumvit Soi 3 there are many Arab, Middle Eastern, and African restaurants, as well as a number of British and Irish Pubs. Sukhumvit 11 alone features Spanish, Indian, Australian, Italian, German, Mexican, Thai, and even fusion cuisine at the popular Bed Supperclub. Up near Sukhumvit Soi Asoke there are many Korean restaurants, and around Sukhumvit 24 and the Emporium Department store there are many authentic Japanese eateries. After hours, Sukhumvit Road becomes a street-food paradise with vendors lined up along the sidewalk between Sukhumvit 3 and 21, where all variety of Thai food is served until the early morning hours.

    Bangkok Riverside:

    Both along and upon the Chao Phraya River there are a host of upscale restaurants and authentic Thai restaurants. With some of the most spectacular sunset views in the city, restaurants along the river’s edge range from swanky hotel cafes and outdoor, rooftop dining rooms, to rustic riverside Thai restaurants and seafood specialists with live music. For additional romance, a dinner cruise aboard an old, teak, rice barge or a larger, more festive boat with live music are both popular experiences for enjoying both the river of kings and some outstanding Thai cuisine.

    As in most provincial capitals, Bangkok features a central market where locals can buy everything from groceries to household appliances and visitors can shop for clothing and other necessary supplies. In addition to the shopping venues listed below, there are often locally produced handicrafts available at central markets, the occasional night market, and from village workshops in smaller towns throughout the province.

    Key Tips

  • 凡幫襯三輪電單車(tuk tuk), 珠寶店和裁縫店,特別是在熱門旅遊點範圍內的,都要謹防詐騙。請記住,坐車是沒有免費的。
  • 最好截停行駛中的的士(紅燈表示空車);這些的士通常依收費錶計價,而停泊路旁的的士一般都要求較高的固定車資,或讓您受騙。
  • 每年的6月至9月是季風季節,雨勢通常來得又急又猛,尤其是在下午。帶備足夠的鞋襪和一把傘是明智之舉。
  • Located in the heart of Southeast Asia, Bangkok attracts millions of visitors each year, including tourists and business travelers. To cater to such a diverse multitude of guests, Bangkok features the widest variety and quality of places to stay in Thailand, if not the entire world. The vast range of accommodation in Bangkok includes some of worlds most acclaimed hotels as well as entire neighborhoods of budget backpacker hostels and guesthouses.
    While many luxury hotels line the Chao Phraya riverside, where rooms and restaurants overlook the river, the sprawling city features numerous centers of commerce and areas dense with sightseeing attractions and a full range of accommodation options exists near each one. The districts of Siam, Silom, Sukhumvit, and historic Rattakosin each contain five star hotels, family-friendly mid-range accommodation, and a number of budget guesthouses. With a reputation for courteous service with a smile, Bangkok’s hotel staff will make you feel at home no matter what accommodation you choose, and the city’s efficient transportation infrastructure will make it easy to shop, dine, or sightsee from whichever area of the city you wish to lodge.

    As one of the premier tourist destinations in Thailand, Bangkok has innumerable attractions, including temples, markets, palaces, and museums, ensuring that visitors with any interest will find something to keep them entertained on their Bangkok holiday. The following are some of the most popular attractions in Bangkok:

    As one of the premier tourist destinations in Thailand, Bangkok has innumerable activities to participate in, ensuring that visitors with any interest will find something to keep them entertained on their Bangkok holiday. The following are some of the most popular activities on Bangkok:

    Bangkok is one of the premier cities for world-class cuisine. In addition to thousands of outstanding Thai restaurants from five-star to street stall, Bangkok features the entire spectrum of international cuisines, a byproduct of its cosmopolitan population. Expatriate Japanese, Indian, German, Italian, French, Lebanese, and people of nearly every other nationality have established authentic eateries throughout the city. Upscale food courts in many shopping plazas provide visitors with a wide selection of outstanding restaurants, and most hotels feature at least one Thai and one international dining establishment. An incipient food-tourism industry has even appeared on the scene; a testament to the outstanding variety and quality of cuisine available in Thailand’s capital city.


    Khao San Road:

    As one of the epicenters of tourist activity in Bangkok, Khao San Road features a great selection of food, from Thai street food to authentic Middle Eastern and western cuisine. While entrees in Thai restaurants along Khao San Road are hardly authentic -they tend to prepare their food with far less chili than most Thai restaurants do- menus are all in English and the prices are only moderately higher than in everyday Thai restaurants. On the street however, it’s possible to buy common Thai street food, such as fresh fruit, phad thai noodles, spring rolls, and various meats on a stick, all for under $1 US. For novices to Thai cuisine who are fearful for their stomachs, there are also chain branches of American fast food outlets Burger King, McDonalds and Subway, and for those with more refined palettes there are restaurants along nearby Phra Athit Road that serve authentic Thai cuisine to a predominately Thai student crowd.

    Silom Road:

    The Silom business district around Sala Daeng BTS station may be better known to visitors for the Patpong red-light district and its popular night market. However, Silom features an outstanding collection of Thai and international restaurants, both upscale and casual. In addition to many fine dining restaurants and moderately priced cafes, there are also many international chain restaurants and some of Bangkok’s best street-food dining venues, both on Silom and its side streets, particularly Soi Convent and Soi Sala Daeng.

    China Town:

    Yaowarat, Bangkok's Chinatown, is a one of the top dining neighborhoods in Bangkok, with a range of dining options from some of the cheapest food stalls, including fresh fruit vendors and roasted chestnuts stands, to some of the most expensive Chinese restaurants in the city. Along Yaowarat Road and the mazes of side streets leading away from it you will find dim sum, seafood, and many other Chinese eateries, particularly Cantonese dining establishments.
    In nearby Pahurat, just west of Chinatown, there is a large, long-established Indian community that sells Indian cuisine at a number of authentic restaurants.

    Siam Square:

    In addition to dozens of restaurants of every variety in the Siam Paragon, Siam Discovery, and Siam Center shopping malls, the streets of Siam Square contain numerous restaurants serving authentic Thai, Chinese, Italian, and even American food at the city’s only Hard Rock Café.

    Sukhumvit Road:

    With arguably the highest percentage of hotels in the city it’s hardly surprising that Sukhumvit Road is a literal smorgasbord of dining options. Beginning around Sukhumvit Soi 3 there are many Arab, Middle Eastern, and African restaurants, as well as a number of British and Irish Pubs. Sukhumvit 11 alone features Spanish, Indian, Australian, Italian, German, Mexican, Thai, and even fusion cuisine at the popular Bed Supperclub. Up near Sukhumvit Soi Asoke there are many Korean restaurants, and around Sukhumvit 24 and the Emporium Department store there are many authentic Japanese eateries. After hours, Sukhumvit Road becomes a street-food paradise with vendors lined up along the sidewalk between Sukhumvit 3 and 21, where all variety of Thai food is served until the early morning hours.

    Bangkok Riverside:

    Both along and upon the Chao Phraya River there are a host of upscale restaurants and authentic Thai restaurants. With some of the most spectacular sunset views in the city, restaurants along the river’s edge range from swanky hotel cafes and outdoor, rooftop dining rooms, to rustic riverside Thai restaurants and seafood specialists with live music. For additional romance, a dinner cruise aboard an old, teak, rice barge or a larger, more festive boat with live music are both popular experiences for enjoying both the river of kings and some outstanding Thai cuisine.

    As in most provincial capitals, Bangkok features a central market where locals can buy everything from groceries to household appliances and visitors can shop for clothing and other necessary supplies. In addition to the shopping venues listed below, there are often locally produced handicrafts available at central markets, the occasional night market, and from village workshops in smaller towns throughout the province.

    泰國首都曼谷,泰國人稱她為「天使之城」(Krung Thep)。作為泰國政治、經濟、文化、美食和精神之都,曼谷兼具古色古香的魅力和現代化的舒適方便。她雖然有時出現一點混亂,但總是帶著親切的微笑。

    在泰國度假旅遊的人士,無一例外,必定會前往首都曼谷一遊,也必定被曼谷的龐大面積和眾多景點迷住。曼谷確實是一個令人感動的城市。自從國王拉瑪一世在1782年定都於此後,曼谷歷經兩個多世紀的迅速發展,今天已成為一個國際大都會、一個擁有一千多萬人口的21 世紀大城市。

     

    這個一望無際的城市和那些繁忙得有點混亂的街道可能令人起初有點生畏,但多花一些時間後便會很快迷上曼谷各種各樣的景點。從奪目耀眼、富有泰國佛教歷史內涵的寺廟,到每逢假日必去的現代化購物商場,實在不勝枚舉。無論是順道到此一遊的遊客,或是專程來曼谷度假的人士,保證會稱心如意、樂而忘返。


    曼谷著名景點多以大皇宮為首選。光輝閃耀的大皇宮聳立於曼谷拉達那哥欣Rattanakosin)舊城區的中心,毗鄰最壯觀的寺廟,包括玉佛寺、黎明寺和臥佛寺。這些標誌性的目的地都是前往曼谷觀賞泰國獨特文化傳統的熱門景點。

     

    曼谷有寺廟400多間,分佈全市各處。遊客不難在早上看到穿上橘黃色僧衣的僧侶,四出化緣,到處行走,或沿昭拍耶河(又稱「王者之河」)而行,途經舊城區和黎明寺。

    與昭拍耶河連接的運河,縱橫交錯,使曼谷贏得「東方威尼斯」的昵稱。乘船遊覽昭拍耶河,參觀水上市場,或到各城市的「後巷」運河 klongs)探索,也是別有趣味的曼谷之遊。
