Bangkok

Bangkok is an eclectic mix of every aspect of everyday life. Its pace, size, noises, smells, people, traffic will quite literally blow you away. The pavements are buzzing with life, including open air kitchens, clothing stalls and people and animals– just everywhere. But this is truly one of the most addictive and fascinating cities on earth.

As with many key cities in Asia, Bangkok’s ability to combine modernity alongside the ancient traditions of Thai culture continues to amaze. Here modern, futuristic transport systems nestle next to sauntering elephants; alms collecting monks wander past cyber cafes, and glass skyscrapers tower over ancient buildings.

Bangkok is home to some of the best affordable hotels in the world, and with a multitude of spas, vibrant nightlife, and a diverse range of markets selling everything from sarongs to YSL and hi-tech gadgets – your head will truly be spinning.

In the heart of Bangkok, you’ll find the old city - and its regal heart the stunning Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Phra Kaeo. The charming Golden Mount is a short hop to the east, while to the south are the wondering alleyways and temples of Bangkok’s Chinatown. If you head westwards you’ll discover the magnificent spire of Wat Arun and the khlongs of Thonburi. To the north you’ll find the leafy avenues of Dusit, the home of the king’s residence. Carry on east and south and you’ll reach modern Bangkok. A complex of boutiques forms Siam Square and the centre of youth fashion; where there are a mix of shopping centres, restaurants, and hotels, while the Chatuchak Weekend Market in the northern suburbs is one of Asia’s greatest markets.
