Product Description: 

Houses standing on piles in the water of the canals, the floating market and temples with glistening mosaics are living memories from the past, but the skyscrapers standing on the bank of Chao Phraya and luxury cars speeding on the highway are forerunners of the new century. Old and new, rich and poor, backwards and ultra modern, Bangkok is a place of controversies. In the buzzing metropolis, Royal Palace and the buddhist monasteries are islands of peace and silence. One can see a five ton Buddha statue, temples with marble, mirrors and gold, and relics each more beautiful than the previous one. Take a trip from Bangkok to the ruins of the ancient capital of Ayutthaya, walk across the bridge of the River Kwai, or explore the beaches of Pattaya.
