It’s not unlikely that you might feel a little like Theseus navigating Daedalus’ labyrinth when travelling around Bangkok, there’s a lot of busy streets that look very much like each other, confusing, shifting street names and of course the language gap! A good map with both English and Thai names is your Ariadne’s string and Theseus would have never made it through the maze without that string!
The most economical, accessible and comfortable way to travel around Bangkok is definitely the Skytrain (BTS), which literally soars above traffic, and the underground (MRT). There are BTS and MRT stops close to nearly every point of interest in the city and you can get budget-friendly day passes and week passes!
The city itself is filled with numerous things to do and places to visit and for those seeking top-notch accommodation, the locale will not disappoint. Chatrium Residence Riverside Bangkok which is one of the many serviced apartments in Bangkok will be a good choice for travellers wanting decent accommodation and outstanding service when on holiday here.
When it comes to fine dining in Bangkok, you’ll not disappointed with its variety of street food. It will be a bit difficult task at the beginning to choose your favourite dish, but you’ll find a new dish to take back home! Thai rice noodles, grilled meat, and papaya salad are some of the popular street food dishes. Chinatown, Silom Soi 20 and Wang Lang Market are Bangkok’s popular street food areas.
