Bangkok, home to AATC, is the capital and the most populated city in Thailand. Covering an area of 1,500 square kilometres, the greater Bangkok Metropolis easily falls into the big city category. With an estimated twelve million inhabitants, many first-time visitors are overawed with the immensity of it all.
Exploring this exciting city is relatively easy thanks to the Skytrain (BTS) and subway (MRT) systems. Royal palaces and temples as well as several museums constitute its major historical and cultural tourist attractions. Popular sights include the Grand Palace and major Buddhist temples, Vimanmek Mansion in Dusit Palace, Bangkok National Museum and the Royal Barge National Museum.
There are many rivers and canals (klongs) to explore, and boat trips on the Chao Phraya and Thonburi’s canals offer superb views of some of the city’s traditional architecture along the waterfront.
Other places you may wish visit during your stay include: The Crocodile Farm, Ancient City, Snake Farm, Kanchanaburi (with its famous bridge over the River Kwai), Chatuchak Market, China Town, Dusit Zoo, Jim Thompson’s House (the place to buy Thai silk and art work), Lumphini Park, Siam Square, Sukhumvit Road (famed for it’s night life).
