Like most Asian capitals, Bangkok is a city that never sleeps. It is difficult to spend time in Thailand without making a stop in this multifaceted city. The old vibe of Thonburi town contrast with the modernity of the business district of Silom. Shopping centres are commonplace in the streets of the capital. Take this opportunity to pass through one of the many massage shops where you will discover the pleasures of a Thai massage for only about 250THB (just over 5 euros). Hop from riverbus to riverbus to make your way down the Chao Phraya River. Once ashore, do not hesitate to take the sky train to avoid the traffic jams.
As for the local lingo, the Thai language is not easy to pronounce by Western visitors. To start, remember these few words:
"Sawatdee Kaa" (hello if you are a woman)
"Sawatdee Khrab" (hello if you are a man)
"Khorb khun ka" (thank you if you are a woman)
"Khorb khun krub" (thank you if you are a man)
