Bangkok - the city that never sleeps! Experience a few days in Bangkok to explore this vibrant, sometimes chaotic, metropolis with a BIG reputation that it can easily live up to! It’s one of the top destinations in South East Asia and has the capacity to fulfil everyone’s expectations and more Bangkok is diverse. Wherever you look, you’ll see the old and cultured mingling with the bright and the new. The sights must be seen to be believed. Whether it’s the stunning opulence of the palaces, the noise and chaos of the street life or the extremes of the nightlife, Bangkok offers an experience not to be missed at amazing value.
The sights - Grand Palace: Within the white walls of the Grand Palace complex lie a plethora of stunning temples. A glittering kaleidoscope of colours including the famous Aphon Phimok pavilion and Chakri Maha Prasad royal residence. Today the Palace is only used for state banquets and royal ceremonies and all visitors must dress respectfully with shorts and short skirts forbidden.
Wat Phra Kaeo: The ’Temple of the Emerald Buddha’, adjoining the Grand Palace and the holiest shrine to the Thai Buddhists. Wat Po: Bangkok’s largest and oldest temple. Few statues are more impressive than the mammoth Reclining Buddha.
Chao Phraya River: The "River of Kings" where life began for Bangkok along the banks of this famed river. It is now the vibrant focal point in the heart of the city and a hub of local activity bringing the rich produce from the fertile north.
Jim Thompson’s House: An original Thai-style house amidst lush gardens and home to the remarkable American who came to Thailand and revived the Thai silk industry.
National Museum: Home to some of the best sculptures and paintings the nations artists have produced and partly an original palace of the ’second king’
Floating Market: Located outside Bangkok, this is a must-see, bright, bustling, loud, and colourful and a world away from our idea of a market.
