The capital city buzzes day and night and is situated on the Chao Phraya River. Buddhist Temples are a must-see, as is the Grand Palace on the banks of the river. Here you will also find the Wat Phra Keow, a temple housing the Emerald Buddha. Shopping ranges from department stores to street vendors, where haggling is expected. Night-life is varied - there's something to suit all tastes from dinner cruises to traditional Thai cultural shows.
