Welcome to Bangkok

Bangkok

Crazy but addictive

The magnificent capital of Thailand, Bangkok is fascinating, charming and electrifying. With an unbelievable wealth of temples to visit, futuristic skyscrapers towering high above, exhilarating nightlife Bangkok is bursting with things to see and do. A popular way to see this city is a boat ride along the Chao Phraya River which stops at most major attractions or opt for the more thrilling form of transport the tuk tuk. After the hustle and bustle of Bangkok take a well deserved trip to the south and relax on the Koh Pha Ngan beach or visit the Second World War site, the bridge over the River Kwai which is not too far from Bangkok.

If there’s one word which can perfectly encapsulate the experience of visiting Bangkok, it’s intense. This city certainly does have a lot going on; with plenty of it being unique and unusual. But during holidays to Bangkok there is one thing you will notice and that is the number of smiles all around you.

The locals here have always got a smile on their faces no matter what and it is this which adds to the unique charm of Bangkok.

Bangkok is the capital of Thailand and has a population of over 11 million. It is a modern, cosmopolitan city which is divided into several districts. The city is always busy and thriving, making it an exciting stop off point for young travellers: if it’s a relaxing break you’re after, then holidays to Bangkok might not be the answer.

Information & Facts

Climate

Bangkok has a hot and tropical climate. During the day, temperatures can go up to the mid 30s and this is true no matter what time of year you go so be prepared for hot and humid conditions on your holidays in Bangkok. March, April and May are the hottest months and after this, the rainy season begins and lasts right up until October.

Eating Out

Thai food is fresh and fairly simple often mixing spicy, sour, sweet and salty flavours together to make a range of delicious dishes which can be adapted to suit any tastes. In Bangkok in particular, you will find a huge range of restaurants to choose from. Over the course of your holidays to Bangkok you can choose to eat in a riverside restaurant, on a cruise, in a trendy modern restaurant or from the food markets. In Bangkok there are also plenty of street food vendors offering delicacies or if you want to make a night of it, why not go to a Bangkok dinner show, where you can enjoy traditional food as well as traditional entertainment.

When on your holidays to Bangkok it’s worth opening your mind and trying new things. But with some of the very unusual delicacies on offer here, it might be worth just double-checking what’s on your plate before you decide to eat it.

The food in Thailand is world-renowned and it is in Bangkok where you will find the world famous Royal Dragon restaurant. The waiters and waitresses in this restaurant have a unique way of serving food. They fly through the air on harnesses, juggling food or skate along on rollerblades. This is the world’s biggest restaurant, seating 5000 guests and can really add a bit of magic to your Bangkok holidays.

Sightseeing

Anyone on a holiday to Bangkok will immediately notice extremely varied and fascinating architecture. From the intricate and graceful traditional temples to the unusual, modern day tower blocks, the buildings in the city really complement each other and make the place completely unique. Where else in the world can you see a building in the shape of a robot, or tower blocks designed to look like an elephant sitting comfortably with the beautiful Buddhist temples?

The Grand Palace is Bangkok’s most famous landmark and with its intricate detail it really is a marvellous piece of architecture. The palace was built in 1782 and the Thai King lived there for 150 years.

Holidays to Bangkok are all about markets. And for the ultimate market experience, ensure you make time for the Chatuchak Weekend Market, which is huge in size and has anything and everything you could possibly imagine on the stalls there. Expect more Bangkok chaos here and of course, plenty of haggling.

Things not to miss


1. Holidays to Bangkok are not complete without a trip to the floating market. It’s astonishing how the locals pile their boats high with local food, fruit and vegetables. It’s absolute chaos and has got to be seen to be believed. You won’t find a sight like this anywhere else in the world.

2. For something which completely sums up the city, take a trip to Vimanmek Royal Mansion. This is the largest building made completely of golden teak. In keeping with the graceful and intricate architecture of the city, this really is a unique building.

3. If you only have time to visit one of the many temples on your holidays in Bangkok then make sure it is the Wat Pra Kaeo temple. This is seen as the most important Buddhist temple in Thailand. See the fascinating Buddha image which has been carved out of a single block of emerald and dates back to the 15th century AD.
