The Peninsula has a luxury fleet of chauffeur driven limousines but the tuk-tuk is an equally fun (and always faster) way to nip about the city. The Peninsula Bangkok is also accessed by way of a small boat that crosses the river, and also has easy access to shopping areas and the city's major tourist attractions, either by sky train or by taking a boat along the river. Attractions include the Grand Palace, Chinatown, the floating market and numerous fascinating temples. Bangkok is a modern and fast changing city and as well as some of its ancient and historical sites the newer shopping districts and fashionable bars and restaurants are also well worth a visit.
