I traveled to Bangkok, Thailand during last Christmas. No jingle bells or white snow, I spent my Christmas Eve in a restaurant on the riverside, listening to Thailand's special Silent Night which became great memory to me. thai temple

"Tom Yam Kung" is the most famous food in Thailand. I didn't adapt to its spicy and sour favor at first, but finally found it special and ordered this soup when I traveled to other Southeast Asian countries. tom yam kung

Bright colour and gorgeous stlye of its archtecture in Bangkok impressed me most. The Grand Palace is a very beautiful place for sightseeing. One thing also impressed me was that it's too crowed. There were visitors everywhere and it was so hard to find a place to take photos. {:soso_e120:}

I was on a business trip to Bangkok last year and liked the spicy food there.

Why are people rushing to Bangkok?
More beautiful than China?
Food is more delicious ?
I don't believe it

I'll go and check my photos.
It depends, it could be expensive if you go to an expensive restaurant. I remember there are two or three meals we had in an expensive one cost us over 2000B for a meal.
But the average price of food is cheap.

Maybe Bangkok is not so beautiful as China and the "Tom Yam Kung" soup tastes strange .It is so exotic and mysterious that attracts people to travel there anyway.

the meal including drinks and main food cost us about 1000thb, so it's around 200RMB (for three people). I think it's relatively cheap because the seafood in my hometown cost much more money.

after all that you still have time to njoy the nitelife there (even better if you're a boi like me...you digg) and here's the tune for you as follows  

*One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Can't be too careful with your company
I can feel the Devil walking next to me

I guess if you really want to travel to some places, it would be wise to plan it before you got enough time and money. Believe me, the difficulty is not these factors but ur strong will to make the decision.
