The streets of Bangkok are busy. The law of the strongest applies here and it does not favour pedestrians. Basically you just have to cross the street and hope for the best. The same applies to Tuk Tuks, small basically self made Taxis. There is a saying in Bangkok: “If you aren’t able to pass your driving exam, you drive Tuk Tuk!”. Still it’s part of the experience and definitely a nice way to get to know the city. Usually you have a Tuk Tuk for a whole day and it brings you to the major sights, just be careful if it seems to cheap (20 Bat), because then some drivers like to bring you to suit shops first to cash in some commission.
Bangkok with its eight million inhabitants is the sprawling capital of Thailand. A multifaceted metropole with modern districts and high rise buildings, but also traditional Asian houses with twisted streets and channels. There are many Buddhist temples to discover and amazing street food around every second corner. Bangkok is a loud and noisy city for sure, but inhabitants and visitors alike can rest in the city parks and enjoy large lizards casually crossing the walkways. A city of many wonders for sure.
The Buddhist Temples in Thailand are actually called “Wat” stemming from a Hindu word for enclosure. They are like sacral fortifications with monks living and praying in it. Many of them can be visited when showing respect and covering shoulders and legs. Sometimes you even get to know some monks and can have a talk with them, they are friendly and actually have a good sense of humour.
