Parts of Thailand's capital are ablaze with neon at night, roar with traffic by day, and amid the ramshackle chaos, there's always something colourful to draw your eye. From gold-spired Buddhist temples and monks' robes to flowers in a hidden market and the T-shirts of touts. It's a vast, tropical, assault on the senses and home to 11 million. Pack your curiosity, fortitude and sense of adventure. Bangkok is ready for you.
