Cruising to Bangkok (Laem Chabang)

Thailand's seething capital of Bangkok has a well-known reputation as a party place, with a supreme nightlife and thriving neon strip that captures the imagination and inspires play. But there's more to this steamy city than meets the eye.

Spirituality, splendour and great cuisine - these are aspects that are all too often overshadowed by the reputation of this fantastic holiday destination.

Until you've slurped noodles in sweat-drenched Klong Toey, while surrounded by a heaving mass of people, you've not experienced Bangkok. The same goes for witnessing the beautiful temples of Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Suthat and Wat Arun.

There are dozens of Buddhist shrines throughout the city, and they're always worth a visit, although it's important to ensure you dress appropriately and cover your shoulders and legs out of respect, otherwise you won't be allowed in.

Through it all, Bangkok is a haze of exciting activities and attractions that represents a unique viewpoint into another world. Do yourself a favour and experience it.
