Bangkok at dawn
Thailand travel is becoming more and more popular, and it is easy to see why; the delicious food it has to offer, the picturesque white sandy beaches, and the friendly people that have made Thailand famous for being 'the land of smiles'.
Upon arriving in Bangkok at the beginning of your Thailand holiday, you will be immediately captivated by the Asian style architecture. You'll fly into Suvarnabhumi airport which has recently been renovated and is extremely stylish with its statues, Thai style decorations and its gold-leaf Buddhas.
You can get one of the numerous multi-colored taxis to take you into the hustle and bustle of Bangkok city. Once there, you will be greeted with the street food stalls selling everything from Pad-Thai, satay chicken..After grabbing some lunch I would recommend heading to one of the many massage spas to relax yourself after your long international flight. I paid 150 THB for an hour long Thai massage on Soi Rambuttri and I have to say it was one of the best massages I have ever had. I left the salon feeling so relaxed and ready for whatever Bangkok had to throw at me.
