If you are looking for a great vacation that is full of adventure and unique experiences, then it is time to head to Thailand.
Bangkok recently received a top travel honor after being named Travel & Leisure magazines Top City award, according to Yahoo Travel. It was also won the distinction in 2008.
Bangkok Governor Sukhumbhand Paribatra told the news source that the award is something that the city takes very seriously, especially after a year of hardships, and that he is looking forward to a good tourism season.
The city offers a plethora of things to explore, from visiting the Grand Palace and Wat Pho to riding an elephant in the Thai jungle. Bangkok has long been a popular travel destination, with its tropical weather, colorful culture and close proximity to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
For those who are looking for an alternative way to see the city, take one of the many bike tours that are offered that will wind you through the old city, across the river and into the jungle before returning to the bustling metropolis.
The best way to have the most authentic experience in Bangkok is to travel with a small group.
