Day 1-3: Bangkok
You either love or hate Bangkok. This city has so much to offer in terms of culture, food, amusement and really nice people that you can easily fall in love with this city. But it contains also some of the sneakiest Thais there are. It can easily happen to you that you ask someone for the direction to a temple and he will tell you that its closed but that he can bring you to a much nicer place instead. Also taxi drivers will often tell you that their meter is broken in order to negotiate a fix price which is way too high. You can be angry about that behavior or take it easy as they just try to make a living and with a minimum of preparation you will do well in this fascinating city.
