Bangkok City Travel Video Guide
We are your personal guide to the finest in holiday destinations, nightlife, dining, health, fashion and more in Thailand and Asia! There’s no place in the world quite like Bangkok – and that’s why we love it. It’s loud, chaotic, a shopping and culinary Mecca, traditional, modern, exotic, artistic and without a doubt, the best party spot on this side of the globe.
So to help you discover the best of Bangkok, as always we will be doing hotel and restaurant reviews, profiling things to do, filming the best events as well as giving iTips and iDeals. From the quiet brilliance of the royal palace to the pumping night hotspots and the lavish spas – Bangkok has everything.
Known in Thai as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, this pumping city of 14 million in its metropolitan area is one of the world’s top tourist destinations – with good reason. Sitting on the Chao Phraya River, it’s hard to imagine that Bangkok started its life as a small trading post in the 15th century. But thanks to its central location and proximity to water, its exponential growth has made it the spiritual, cultural, political, commercial, educational and diplomatic centre.
A city of contrasts, it is internationally famed for its culture, ever-smiling locals and being expert in the more sensual arts. But if you think Bangkok is just Mangoes, ping pong balls and happy endings – you couldn’t be further from the truth. From the backpacking paradise of Khao San Road to the leafy, luxurious suburbs of Dusit where nobility call home, the iTravel Channel takes you off the beaten track to uncover Bangkok’s hidden gems.
A huge part of Bangkok’s allure is without a doubt food. The mammoth metropolis is home to some of the top restaurants in the world and a plethora of mid-range family eateries. But a ubiquitous part of the city scape is definitely its colourful food vendors – an estimate 100,000 in all. Everywhere you look you will see rice noodles being tossed or fresh pineapple being chopped so in Bangkok a meal is always only a few steps away.
So stick with the iTravelChannel.tv as we show you the top Bangkok has to offer this season. So you will never be bored, always have fun and forever have the best memories to take with you.
