Foodies will never be short of new delicacies to sample in Bangkok, with intense combinations of sweet, sour, salty and spicy available all over the city. Try Sukhothai noodles for an example of the perfect balance of flavours and textures in Thai food, or the popular sate skewers, made with pork or liver marinated in coconut cream, barbecued and dipped in delicious peanut sauce.
History buffs will enjoy the many ancient houses scattered in with the new in Bangkok, as well as the ornate Buddhist temples nestling in amongst the buzzing, neon-lit streets. The Grand Palace, still used by King Bhumibol Adulyadej for official occasions, lies at the heart of Bangkok, and is a must-see for visitors. Its construction began in 1782, and the complex of ornate buildings, courtyards and lawns was expanded from then onwards to its current, sprawling magnificence.
