Bangkok, aptly nicknamed "the Big Mango", is the most cosmopolitan capital in southeast Asia and the most fun by miles.
Jim Thompson's House and museums dedicated to the bizarre are some of the reasons to visit Bangkok.
A scary museum and a sky-high bar could drive you to a tasty drink.

A drink or swim on the rooftop of this recent addition to Bangkok's hotel scene is a must.
Cuisine drives this city, and as the sun bakes furiously, locals toil over woks and grills from morning 'til night, creating the most heavenly street food on earth.

Mega-malls, hotels and temples sprawl from the city's lifeline, the Chao Praya river; a spectacle within itself.
