For us is Bangkok always again and again a favourite stop on our journeys to Asia. Also as a Stop Over or as a direct destination, this pulsating metropolis fascinated us each times. A trip with the express boat on the Chao Phraya River belongs to our "indispensable program" exactly the same as the visit of the fascinating temples and palace district, the colourful markets and the exotic restaurants. We like it to stay in one of the hotels at the riverside, because you have a beautiful view on the river with the noisy longtailboats, ferries, and barges. In addition the air pollution is not so strong here, because there is always a draught from the water.
