The warm climate may not excite you if you come from a tropical country. However, it is a good place for all those coming from otherwise cold countries.
Bangkok is a good place to begin your Thailand Chapter of international travel. This capital city has a few attractions in itself. The sight of vehicles queued up in a long traffic maze is uninviting, especially with the heat but the shopping complexes take care of this providing a very cool and exciting environment to be at your shopping best. Keep that credit card handy! This ‘city of angels’ attracts a lot of tourists especially to the Buddhist temples and otherwise to the rivers and canals and an interesting nightlife.

You can take a look at various historical places from the Lanna era. You can even go on a biking expedition. For the weak hearted, the elephant ride should be fun.
