History
Cannes started life as a small fishing town, and most of the land was owned by monks in the 11th Century, who expanded their monastery buildings right out to the nearby Island of St Honorat. The monks also built a square look out tower to warn the town of pirates, and this is still standing and is situated next to the Castre Museum in the Old Town area of modern Cannes. Tourism in the area began to take off when the town became a fashionable health retreat for wealthy members of both the British and French elite, and soon the dry, warm climate, stunning coastline and rapidly developing facilities were attracting wealthy visitors from all around the world.

Given only a few days to get to know an entire city, it’s pretty hard for an independent traveler to plot out the journey. When you’re visiting Bangkok, however, it really only comes down to these six streets. Once you’ve explored all of them, it’s safe to say that you’ve looked at Bangkok at all (essential) angles and you can write that travelogue without guilt .Take a sneak peek of them through this list.

Trok Issaranuphap


When you visit Bangkok’s Chinatown, you’ll probably be led by younger Thais to Sampaeng Lane, Yaowarat  or Charoen Krung. As the older ones know, though, the best of goods are sold in Trok Issaranuphap. You simply can’t leave Bangkok without visiting this strip.

At the tip of this narrow alley, you’ll be awestruck by a Chinese temple called Mangkon Kamalawat. As you walk further, you’ll see the wet market where there’s a wide variety of stalls selling prepared food. Notorious for its exotic cuisine, though, these are definitely not suited for the fainthearted.
