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.

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.

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.

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.
