Thailand for two weeks from 30th December onwards. First decision: what to do for New Years? Head for an island? Ignore prevailing demographics and do the Full Moon Party?

No, it had to be Bangkok. Dive into this frenetic and divisive city with its amp turned up to 11.

Our view? Any urban traveller can only adore the heat, colours, tastes, sounds and smells of somewhere like Bangkok. And they know how to do New Years. Hopefully this video shows a little of all of the above.
