Bangkok is the largest city in Thailand, also known as the Land of a Thousands Smiles, with a population of approximately 12 million people. Most travellers would begin their tour from Bangkok, Thailand's epicentre of political, economic, social and cultural life. One of the world’s top tourist destinations, the capital city of Thailand is religious with its many monasteries, complemented by the fine arts, swanky restaurants, groovy music scenes, hip bars and the experiential shopping.
A city uniquely blended with vibrancy, culture and heritage, and exotic appeal, Bangkok is well-known for its water travel along the rivers which remains an important mode of transportation in Thailand. While the city is supported by major roads and railways branching out to various parts of the country, the iconic tuk tuks, the contemporary three-wheelers, are commonly used to traverse amidst thick traffic jams within the city.
Essential facts of Bangkok
Bangkok is a tropical city and remains warm throughout the year. The best time to visit is from October through February as temperatures range around 25-28 degrees Celsius, with cooling light breezes and only occasional showers.
The national language is Thai, a tonal language with its own alphabet. If you wish to take a taxi to a specific destination, you need to be equipped with the Thai language, as taxi-drivers who speak and understand English are few and far apart! Bilingual Thai/English road signs are found on all road signs including BTS and some local buses.
Time Difference: GMT +7 hours.
Travellers should check the visa regulations at a Thai Embassy/Consulate prior to their journey. All foreign nationals entering Thailand must hold valid passports. At the airport, citizens from most countries will be granted a free transit visa valid for a period of up to 30 days, provided that they have a fully-paid ticket out of Thailand.
The unit of currency is Baht (THB). ATMs generally display both Thai and English signages and will accept most internationally recognised foreign cards. Many ATMs also accept cards that are CIRRUS, Maestro, VISA or MasterCard. Most traveller cheques can be cashed at banks with proof of passport or ID.
Goods purchased in Thailand are inclusive of VAT at 7%. If you're visiting for less than 180 days in a calendar year, not an airline crew member, and leaving Thailand by plane, you can claim for VAT refund (Non-Thais only).
Tipping is not expected, but is increasingly more common. A 10% service charge is normally added to the total bill at most hotels and restaurants. In restaurants, tipping is usually between 10 % and 15% but at small roadside eating places, it is not necessary to tip. Taxi fares should be rounded up to the nearest 5 or 10 Baht, to 'reward' the knowledgeable metered taxis-drivers who remain incredibly patient even in the midst of the infamous Bangkok traffic!
