Monument lovers will find impressive temples, exotic cuisine fans – splendid goodies, and those, who are looking for nighttime entertainment or inexpensive shopping won’t be let down. The biggest attraction of Bangkok is surely the Grand Palace with the temple complex Wat Phra Keo and an Emerald Buddha figurine.
