BANGKOK IS GROOVY: What a city! Nightlife, food galore, temples, markets, smiling faces. It's hard to go wrong: Groovy Bars, Hip & Happening Clubs, Delish Dining, Mega Markets, Culture Vultures, Swish and Swanky Spas, where to get Thai massages, buy Thai silk, find a fortune teller, buy an original alms bowl, haggle for orchids, and lots more shopping too.
We also give you our 'Groovy Day' a linked column covering what we'd do in 24hrs if money were no object and we had the stamina of a teenager. AND updated with completely new maps fonts, coloring - less contrast, bigger and better for older eyes!
5 Maps: Greater Bangkok, Silom, Downtown Bangkok (Sukhumvit Rd) , Rattankosin (Grand Palace, Khao San and Banglamphu area), with BTS skytrain and Bangkok Metro (subway) routes, as well as a Chatuchak (famous weekend market) map.
