The people of Bangkok give the city its charm, one travel journalist has claimed.

Anyone who has booked flights to Bangkok can expect to receive  a warm reception from local residents.

Writing for the Daily Mail, Mark Palmer explained that much of the city’s charm comes from its people.

“It’s impossible to separate the city from its people,” he stated, adding that Bangkok deserves its title City of the Angels.

Mr Palmer spent three days in the Thai capital with his wife, where he explored the city’s restaurants, temples and markets.

He recommended taking a boat trip through the klongs which offer travellers a chance to witness the houses on stilts jutting into the river.

Another highlight of his trip was a visit to see the Emerald Buddha at the Royal Monastery which is carved out of green jade.

It seems that more and more Brits are discovering the delights of Thailand. Research released earlier this month by Skyscanner found that bookings of flights to Bangkok were the eleventh most popular on its website in January.
