Bangkok is a very interesting city, with many temples, pagodas, and historic buildings. It is also an airline hub and, as a result of not being a member of IATA, is a bargain-lover’s city for lower-cost airfares. This updated edition includes the new airport, recently-completed transit lines, and additional information for embassies. In this edition, the Bangkok city map combines with a travel map for the southern half of the country, which means the peninsula connecting to Malaysia and including the most-visited parts of Thailand – the beach resorts located in the vicinity of Phuket. It has also been upgraded to plastic paper, both for the tropical humidity and for durability.
