Bangkok is known to locals as the City of Angels, or to most as the land of delectable pad thai, lit night markets and exhilarating tuk-tuk rides. With a dizzying array of things to do in Bangkok, it’s no surprise that this city is a popular vacay destination for many. If you’re starting to feel the travel itch, start planning your ALs and book a year-end holiday.
