Anyone booking adventure holidays to Thailand should certainly allow a few days to explore the country's capital.
Writing for mb.com.ph, Henrylito D Tacio commented that the city is captivating because of its "beauty and charm". One of the reasons that Bangkok is such an exciting place to visit is because of its "uncanny ability to blend the old with the new", the journalist added.
Among the historic sights that visitors can seek out are the Grand Palace, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and the Temple of Dawn.
The source noted that by visiting some of these monuments "you see images of medieval Oriental wonder".
Adventure travellers stopping off in the Thai capital should also ensure that they take a klong tour. According to Tacio, these klongs - or canals - are the continuation of the city's century-old links to the Chao Phraya River.
Earlier this year, Mari Nicholson recommended taking a daytrip out of the city to visit Bang Pa-In.
In a post on suite101, the writer stated that the palace is situated in "one of the loveliest places" in Thailand.
