Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, is a conurbation where one can find together old and new, East and West, conventional and up-to-the-minute, unified together in a melodious way. Samut Prakan (29 km) has countless tourist attractions such as historical sites, old markets and indigenous lifestyles along the canals. This capital is a sophisticated city with both a pulsating nightlife and abundance of culture to keep you amused all through the day and night. Must-visit places in the vicinity include the Grand Palace and Wat Prakeaw, a structure of temples constructed in 1782 by the king of Thailand. This city is an edgy and hectic conurbation and a vital part of a trip to Thailand. The more audacious head for the infamous backpacker’s road Khao San, the markets and passageways of Chinatown and the iniquitous Patpong Night Market, situated in the city’s red light district.
