After experiencing the very modern city of Dubai, the ancient wonders of Bangkok might feel like stepping back through the centuries to a more traditional way of life, though equally vibrant. Although the financial district in Bangkok does boast some breath-taking skyscrapers, they do not quite compare with the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Instead, you can prepare yourself for ornate, ancient temples and palaces, surrounded by small alleys and bustling streets. Among the temples are the wonderfully colored spires of Wat Arun, but the most famous site is undoubtedly the magnificent Grand Palace, the formal residence of the Thai monarchy. Floating markets are an exciting experience, and there are several in or near Bangkok where you can haggle over goods. Thai cuisine is as delicious as it is varied, and there will be plenty for you to discover while in Bangkok.
