Bangkok is full of temples – to faith and capitalism – a confounding mix of old and new, and a lot of bustle. It's also hot and humid, so make sure you plot some parks into your day to rest and cool down between sightseeing. The last few years have seen a lot of sleek bars and cafés appear alongside some sparkling infrastructure but you can easily find traditional food and culture away from the main thoroughfares. The best time to visit is during the cool season November to February, but the rainy season (July to October) is also very pleasant between downpours and less busy.
