Bangkok is a city of contrasts – shining temples, five star hotels, river life, Royal Palaces, shopping malls, local gardens, and wonderful food and a vibrant street life. At every turn there is something new to feast your eyes on and enrich your experience.
Thailand’s capital city for the last 240 years, Bangkok is an expansive city of more than 10 million people with the Chao Phraya River flowing through its heart – transport for locals and tourists alike.
No trip to Bangkok is complete without visiting its temples, shrines and palaces – the opulent Grand Palace and its sacred Wat Phra Kaew Temple, and a short distance away, the Wat Pho Temple with its giant reclining Buddha, and on the other side of the river, the Wat Arun Temple with spires and steep steps rising up.
Bangkok is a shoppers paradise with everything – street stalls, high end boutiques and vast shopping malls.
Thai hospitality is world famous and it’s everywhere, from local bars and eateries to Michelin star restaurants perched on rooftops overlooking a sprawling city with a rich heritage.
