With a population of approximately 12 million, Bangkok is the largest city in Thailand, also known as the Land of a Thousand Smiles. Most travellers would begin their tour from Bangkok, Thailand's epicenter of political, economic, social and cultural life. One of the world’s top tourist destinations, the capital city of Thailand has many temples, monasteries and museums to visit. Lovers of fine arts, smart restaurants, experiential shopping, cool music and hip bars will also adore Bangkok – by day and by night.
A vibrant city uniquely that uniquely blends culture, heritage and exotic appeal, Bangkok is well-known for its water transport network. While the city is supported by major roads and railways branching out to various parts of the country, the iconic three-wheeled tuk-tuks are great for picking your way through heavy traffic jams.
Essential facts of Bangkok
Bangkok is a tropical city and remains warm throughout the year. The best time to visit is from October through February as temperatures range around 25-28 degrees Celsius, with cooling light breezes and only occasional showers.
The national language is Thai, a tonal language with its own alphabet. If you wish to take a taxi to a specific destination, you need to be equipped with the Thai language, as taxi-drivers who speak and understand English are few and far apart! Bilingual Thai/English road signs are found on all road signs including BTS and some local buses.
GMT +7 hours.
Travellers should check the visa regulations at a Thai Embassy/Consulate prior to their journey. All foreign nationals entering Thailand must hold valid passports. At the airport, citizens from most countries will be granted a free transit visa valid for a period of up to 30 days, provided that they have a fully-paid ticket out of Thailand.
The unit of currency is Baht (THB). ATMs generally display both Thai and English signage and will accept most internationally recognised foreign cards. Many ATMs also accept cards that are CIRRUS, Maestro, VISA or MasterCard. Most travellers cheques can be cashed at banks with proof of passport or ID.
Goods purchased in Thailand are inclusive of VAT at 7%. If you're visiting for less than 180 days in a calendar year, not an airline crew member, and leaving Thailand by plane, you can claim for VAT refund (Non-Thais only).
Tipping is not expected, but is increasingly more common. A 10% service charge is normally added to the total bill at most hotels and restaurants. In restaurants, tipping is usually between 10 % and 15% but at small roadside eating places, it is not necessary to tip. Taxi fares should be rounded up to the nearest 5 or 10 Baht, to 'reward' the knowledgeable metered taxis-drivers who remain incredibly patient even in the midst of the infamous Bangkok traffic!
