Over the last decade, the Thai capital has evolved from a humid riverside city known for its tuk tuks and street food into a modern, rapidly growing Asian commercial hub.
Arguably Southeast Asia's most established tourist destination, Thailand’s capital is home to a big city lifestyle that is also proving to be a big draw for younger generations.
This vibrant hub in the Thai capital has hardly changed in several decades, making it an excellent place to catch a glimpse of what life was like in the 1960s, ‘50s and even the ‘20s.
The city’s literary scene will take centre stage next year, following in the footsteps of Yerevan and Madrid. Find out where the locals pick up their next book.
