The fascinating capital of Thailand, a modern metropolis set within the cultural landscape of the East with ancient temples, bustling markets, busy waterways and vibrant nightlife. Bangkok is a shopaholics dream; the perfect stopover destination for those wishing to bring home a bargain!
Out and About
For an authentic Thai experience jump aboard a traditional TukTuk for an inexpensive and unique way to get around Bangkok or alternatively take the ultra modern and comfortable sky train which will give you a birds eye view of the city. There is plenty to see and do, including:
- Floating Market – absorb the colours, smells and sounds of Bangkok’s famous shopping experience
- Jim Thompson’s House – traditional Thai house once home to the American Silk entrepreneur
- Grand Palace – the famous home to the Emerald Buddha
- Wat Po – the spiritual home of the famous Reclining Buddha and some of Bangkok’s oldest temples
- Bridge Over the River Kwai – 2 hours from Bangkok is the brutal reminder of the Japanese Occupation during World War II.
- Chinatown – colourful streets littered with congested markets
- Chao Phraya Express – journey down Bangkok’s waterways stopping at many riverside attractions
- Ko Kret – Bangkok’s car-free island and one of Thailand’s oldest settlements
- Emporium Shopping Centre – a hive of designer shops and the latest fashion
- Dusit Palace Park – relax and enjoy a performance of traditional Thai dance
Thailand is renowned for its pristine beaches and you don’t have to travel far from Bangkok to find a fine example. Less than two hours south of the city you will find the lively Pattaya Beach or if you prefer a more relaxed option there is the quieter Cha Am Beach. For an extended stopover travel to the delightful tropical island of Koh Samui surrounded by the crystal clear waters and powder soft white sand beaches.
