There is a wealth of things to do and see in Bangkok if you can tolerate the traffic congestion, which can become almost grid locked during the rush hour. The city is very urbanised but still manages to retain its oriental flavour. Street vendors abound, and the city has a much more vibrant feel than most western capitals.
The city is divided into two parts by the Chao Phya river, with Bangkok proper on the east side and Thonburi on the west. Between the river and Hua Lampong Railway Station is "old" Bangkok and the Chinatown district. To the west of Hua Lampong are the tourist, business, and residential areas.
Bangkok was once called the "Venice of the East", but many of the canals have disappeared to make way for more road construction. Water transport, with a few exceptions, is a thing of the past.
