A dazzling and diverse global destination, the Thailand capital city of Bangkok is a beautiful juxtaposition of glorious temples, modern skyscrapers and lush tropical gardens, boasting a skyline like no other. Holidays to Bangkok are a melting pot of culture, where modern streets and eclectic bars rubs shoulders with enchanting ancient architectural wonders, such as the iconic temple of Wat Pho, exquisite Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew. Head to the tourist hotspot Khao San Road for a taste of Bangkok’s buzzing nightlife, while the sprawling Lumphini Park beckons as a refreshing respite from the hustle and bustle of this south-east Asian metropolis.
Famed for its deliciously fragrant dishes, when you’re not indulging in upmarket cuisine or perusing tempting street food options, visit the city’s religious temples, take a boat trip along Chao Phraya River, book a traditional Thai massage or catch a match of the national sport Muay Thai - there’s an abundance of things to do in Bangkok. For an authentic experience, flag down a Tuktuk and enjoy an unforgettable tour of the city; these motorised rickshaws are a thrill in their own right. If you want to explore Thailand’s islands, Bangkok holidays make a great base destination, offering easy onward travel via flight and ferry to top destinations around the country, whether you’re enjoying the natural splendour of the north or want to experience the brilliant beaches further south.
