I've lived here since… 2011. I stayed because I love the tropical climate, and for my job as General Manager of Asia tour operators Backyard Travel.
For culture, you can't miss… the Grand Palace and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Then Wat Pho, a Buddhist temple and the Old City area. There are so many parts to Thai culture, that there’s not one single place where you can really comprehend all aspects of it, but this area is a good starting point.
