Where It Is, How to Get There
Under the chaos and the congestion, Bangkok is actually one of the most tourist-friendly cities in Asia. Among its many surprises, the city's ample shopping could prove to be most rewarding for the average tourist. Bangkok is the capital of Thailand, and its two international airports (Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang) are visited daily by most major airlines.
Bangkok has something for every tourist, but no tourist worth his frequent flier miles would pooh-pooh the city's shopping precincts. The Sukhumvit area in particular is teeming with shops selling clothes, jewelry, and art at rock-bottom prices.
