Bangkok

Welcome to Bangkok

Straddling the banks of the Chao Phraya River, Thailand’s capital acts as the nation’s spiritual, cultural, and political centre. The sprawling metropolis has a rich history, busy markets, and a vibrant nightlife that can satisfy any type of traveller.

Top things to see and do

  • Marvel at Bangkok’s stunning royal temples such as Wat Pho, where you can see the Reclining Buddha statue that measures a magnificent 15 metres tall and 46 metres long.
  • Walk through the grounds of The Grand Palace, a proud salute to the creativity and craftsmanship due to its beautiful architecture and intricate detail.
  • Maneuver through the numerous sections and hunt down a bargain at the Chatuchak Weekend Market, the largest in Thailand.
  • Sample some of Thailand’s popular street food, such as what might be the best Pad Thai in the world at Pad Thai Thip Samai in the Old City.
  • Take a break in Lumpini Park, an inner-city haven of tranquility, fresh air, and shade, where people of all ages can relax or take part in a recreational activity.

Tips for travellers

The relaxing island of Phuket, with its numerous golden beaches and local markets, makes for a great stopover. There are several flights from Bangkok to Phuket and the journey will take you approximately an hour and a half by plane.
