Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand, mixes old school charm with mega malls. The streets are lined with food carts, overlooked by restaurants on top of skyscrapers, while Buddhist temples are located near sleazy areas.
8.5 million people live in this sprawling metropolis, many coming from neighboring cities and villages who seek a better life in Bangkok.
Low cost of living, ease of transportation and foreigner-friendliness makes it is easy for digital nomads to settle here.
Thais are known for their friendliness, and women digital nomads will feel at ease in Bangkok.
The city offers amazing shopping, cultural experiences, amazing culinary scene and you can travel to the other provinces of Thailand from Bangkok easily via train, buses or planes.
Locals complain about the traffic jams, which is notoriously bad. Instead of renting a car or taking a taxi, stick to motorbike taxis or take the BTS Skytrain and MRT, which cover the city center and suburbs.
There are three main seasons: hot season from March to June, rainy season from July to October and cool season between November and February.
April to May and September to October are the steamiest, with high humidity. The southwest monsoons arrive between May and October bringing unsettled, cloudy conditions.
