About Bangkok, Thailand
A mirror of Venice in Asia, this "City of Angels" is a bustling place with a maze of extensive waterways constantly in motion. In between the office towers and royal palaces are beautiful parks, boulevards and gardens. Bangkok is a city with more than 400 Buddhist temples. The most famous of these is the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, containing a statue carved from a single piece of jade. Gaze at one of Bangkok's best known landmarks, Wat Arun, the Temple of the Dawn. Spend time in the city's oldest and biggest monastery, Wat Pho, where you'll be awed by its famed Reclining Buddah. Shoppers will enjoy the excitement of the floating markets.

I have visited Bangkok many times over the past 10 years. The Grand Palace and the Jade and Reclining Buddhas are definitely on the must see list. If you are in town on the weekend, the Chattatuck Market is the largest in Asia. The floating flower markets and the Royal Barge Museum are also great stops.
