Holidays in Bangkok
Thailand's lively capital city of Bangkok serves as a major hub not just for visitors to Thailand but for the whole Far East region. This sprawling metropolis is a city of extremes offering visitors everything from shopping to food to culture to nightlife. Choose from designer fashion in huge modern malls or find a bargain in a bustling night market. Discover an incredible selection of top class restaurants and street food stalls serving an array of mouth-wateringly delicious Thai food - a must for any foodie! Learn about Thailand's culture at the opulent Grand Palace complex and see the stunning reclining Buddha at Wat Pho as you cruise the city's canals by longtail boat passing floating markets along the way, or take your life in your own hands as you navigate the city's gridlocked traffic by tuk tuk. Bangkok is, of course, famous for its nightlife - visitors find everything from nightclubs to cabarets to notorious red-light districts to open air rooftop bars offering spectacular night-time views over the city.
Choice of accommodation is as diverse as the city itself. Find simple hotels along the infamous backpacker mecca of Khao San Road, a great range of affordable five star properties in the heart of lively Silom district, opulent deluxe hotels along the river such as the Mandarin Oriental and The Peninsula, as well as many boutique havens like the charming Hotel Muse. Bangkok is truly a city of contrasts and never fails to amaze and excite visitors. Bangkok is truly a must for a stop-over on any trip into the region.
