Bangkok is everything you'd expect it to be, and more. Thailand’s capital is noisy, crowded, colorful, exciting, infuriating, and fun. There are ancient sites to be visited and modern shopping malls where you can pick up a bargain. It's a fascinating city that represents Southeast Asia's tension between the developed and developing worlds.
Why exhibit there
Thailand has a large and varied manufacturing sector, and seeing as it gets most of its money from tourists, the markets are quite niche, but their strengths in manufacturing and FMCGs have led Thailand to become a regional leader in trade and commerce.
Bangkok airport, Suvarnabhumi, is approximately 30 kilometres (19 miles) east, half an hour from the broad Bangkok CBD area, depending on traffic and time of day.
The most direct route is via the raised freeway in a private taxi, which incurs a toll of 70 Baht and airport tax of 50 Baht - total 120 Baht (approx $4.)

The traditional Thai greeting is known as the “wai” and should be used whenever you are greeting someone. The wai consists of placing your hands together into a prayer position touching them to your head or chest, with the higher your hands are indicating how high a level of respect you are trying to convey. Generally this is also accompanied by a small bow or a nod of the head.
