The city has become westernized and modernized in terms of skyscrapers and billboards with western advertisements but the city is essentially a Thai city with its deep routed belief in Buddhism and an easy way of life. In between the skyscrapers and sophisticated shopping centers there's still the remarkable Wat Phra Kaew and the Grand Palace (pictured), the Temple of the Dawn and many more. Bangkok is the lifeline of the nation as it is the political and commercial centre of the country too, pulling visitors from all over the world.
