What do I need to know about staying in Bangkok?

Transport

Transport in Bangkok can often be perceived as incredibly hectic and confusing. However, this does not have to be the case. Many moped drivers may try to get you on the back of their bikes; however there are plenty of safe taxi and buses available. There are also tuk-tuks everywhere you look, which are a more traditional and cheaper way of getting around the city. Making a long journey? There is a good variety of trains and subways around the city.

Weather

Bangkok has an incredibly warm and humid climate. With highs of 35 degrees in spring and lows of 22 degrees in the winter, many people travel over to Thailand for hot sunny holidays. When on business you should be ready to pack plenty of shirts and spare clothing due to its extremely hot climate. However, between the months of May and November, Bangkok enters its rainy season which can result in extremely sudden downpours of torrential rain.

Cuisine

Bangkok has some excellent choices of food. One of its main dishes - and often labelled as the traditional dish of Thailand - is pad Thai, which includes ingredients such as noodles, chicken, nuts and spring onion. There are also plenty of other Thai dishes such as red, green and yellow curry, which all differ in spice levels.

Language

The majority of people in Thailand speak Thai. However, many others speak Lao, the national language of the northern bordering country of Laos. There are other languages that are more colloquial and a much smaller percentage of the population speak. These include, Kham Muang, Pak Thai, Northern Khmer and Yawi.

What else is Bangkok known for?

Markets

Bangkok is famous for its wide array of markets. One of the types of markets it has is the floating markets. These are where boats are stationed both sides of the Chao Phraya River and sell all types of hot and cold food. With many boat tours on offer, many of these floating markets can be accessed for a small fee. There are also huge markets on land, which can be enormous. Chatuchak Weekend Market is a market with over 8000 stalls and sells anything from furniture to pets.
