Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, is a gigantic Asian metropolis (population over six million), which has nevertheless kept under its modern appearance and noise a lot of the taste of traditional Thailand. The most pleasant way to move around Bangkok and beat its infamous traffic is to use one of the several types of boats which ply the Chao Phraya river. This is an occasion to discover the city water life along its teak-houses lined canals.

The traditional culture of Thailand is present in Bangkok's numerous striking buddhist temples (Wats), which are heavens of peace in an often chaotic city. The three main wats, Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Pho, and Wat Arum, are all located close to the Chao Phraya River. Perched on top of the Golden Mount, Wat Saket offers a great view of Bangkok.
