Bangkok

The bustling metropolis of Bangkok is the thriving cultural and heartland of Thailand, providing a charming combination of tradition and modernity.

As one of the most populous and popular cities in Southeast Asia, Bangkok is a paradise for shoppers, with its luxury malls providing quality goods at bargain prices, and a Weekend Market offering a wide selection of souvenirs to take home from your holiday in Thailand. Revellers will also enjoy the wide selection of clubs and bars which will provide many holiday memories.

Beyond the numerous leisure options in Bangkok, the Thai capital also contains a rich array of historic and religious sites of interest. The impressive Grand Palace provides some stunning photo opportunities on the capital’s Rattanakosin Island, whilst Wat Arun (the Temple of the Dawn), Wat Phra Kaeo (The Emerald Buddha) and Wat Pho (complete with a reclining Buddha) provide a fascinating insight into the Buddhist traditions of Thailand.
