Thailand's dynamic capital, Bangkok is equally known for its stunning temples as for its vibrant nightlife. Constructed along the Chao Phraya river that divides the city, the two major temples Wat Arun and Wat Pho are glorious. In the glow of the rising sun, Wat Arun's brightly hued spires are illuminated in all their glory while at Wat Pho the serene ambiance is further accentuated by the tinkle of prayer coins being dropped into the 108 prayer bowls. The reclining Buddha here is one of the city's most famed sights. Mega malls and street markets abound and delight shoppers with the eclectic choice from designer wear to local crafts and budget-friendly buys. Humming with activity, the city's famed street markets like Chatuchak Market are some of the best places to sample local Thai cuisine and get the feel of the city.
