Travel guide: 555 tips for Bangkok

Bangkok is not only Thailand's capital, but also the gateway to Southeast Asia. And Bangkok is one of the most exciting cities in the world.

Most travelers come here for a few days at the beginning or end of their vacation. But with hardly anyone, Bangkok is love at first sight. I say: With the right tips, a stay in the metropolis is an unforgettable experience.

Together with Florian vom Flocblog I wrote the insider travel guide “555 tips for Bangkok”. There you will not only find the best sights and insider tips, but also everything you need to know about getting around the city, choosing the right district to stay and suggested routes for your stay.

No risk! If you don't like the travel guide, you will get your money back (up to 14 days after the purchase)!

About the authors

In 2011 I got goodbye to Germany and since then I've been traveling with my backpack in America, Africa and of course Asia as a long-term traveler. During this period, no year passed without visiting Thailand.
I hated Bangkok the first time and vowed that I would never return to the much too chaotic metropolis. After a trip to India lasting several months, Bangkok was very welcome and I stayed for two weeks.
Since then, I've stayed in Bangkok a few weeks longer each year. My partner and I now see the capital of Thailand as a new home.
I write about Thailand and the rest of the world in the flocblog .

I have spent more than two years in Southeast Asia since 2006. With my backpack on my back, I traveled from Indonesia to the Philippines and from Myanmar to Singapore. In between I was in Thailand again and again, sometimes for a few days, sometimes for weeks.
Bangkok was love for me at second glance. As a newcomer to Southeast Asia, the city initially overwhelmed me a bit, but I liked it more with every subsequent visit. When I started to find my bearings and discover the many beautiful places away from the tourist traps, my enthusiasm grew. Today Bangkok is one of the highlights of every trip for me.
555 Tips for Bangkok is my third book on Southeast Asia.
