Many tourists first think of Bangkok they though of the foods, shopping and the infamous red light districts. But after experienced all of that you glad you get out of Bangkok. It was a hectic city where if you there for those reasons above then you could have a wonderful time there.
For me personally I preferred Ayuttaya, just an hour drive away from Bangkok. Sure you can\’t shop till you drop but there\’s culture and a real Thai experiences. I have spoken to many travellers during my travels around Thailand and they preferred other cities and town rather than Bangkok.
My recommendations for you if you going to visit the city of light is to experience it only it for a few days. Do your shopping and your temples visits and ofcourse the red light districts then end somewhere else. You\’re glad you did.
It\’s a culture shock for any people that never experience a big city. It could be overwelming sometime. But I got around okay with less confort I must added with the heat and the crowded public transport system. Then I\’m from Sydney Australia, we still have traffic jams and sometime overcrowded public transportation. Nothing in this world is perfect is it?
