Thailand’s busy capital is the country’s largest city, and if you walk through the city, you’ll see a combination of modern innovation and more ancient landmarks like temples and palaces. The city has made Matador’s list for best airports, best late-night food, and best rooftop bars, among others.

Matador contributors have spun through Bangkok’s hostels as well as stayed at its fancy, luxury hotels. Check out the articles below for the perspective of backpackers on a night out and expats who call Bangkok home.

We’ve also got the insight into Bangkok’s nightlife, its insect delicacies, how to stay “green,” getting a traditional tattoo at Wat Bang Phra temple, and its Chatuchak weekend market.

Be a local. Wherever you go.
