The capital of Thailand is a bustling mix of culture, history, shopping and night life. From 5 star hotels to traditional street food, you can find it all in Bangkok.
Why visit Bangkok?
Bangkok is indescribable. Thailand’s capital encompasses everything from all-night party districts to never-ending market stalls to ancient temples. With so much to take in, it’s imperative that a visit here makes up part of any Thailand holiday.
Things to do in Bangkok
Indulge your temple cravings by visiting the Grand Palace, the Temple of the Reclining Buddha (Wat Pho), Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaew) or the Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun). Spend the day in high-end shopping centres acquiring some bargains or go all out and purchase a suit tailor-made just for you. Alternatively, indulge in some inexpensive, high-quality massages from professionals who charge a fraction of what you would find in Australia.
The peaceful Phraya River runs through the heart of the city, and visitors can enjoy a peaceful cruise during the day or an evening dinner cruise. Inspired by what you saw on your plate? Cooking classes with locals will lead you through the produce markets to purchase ingredients as they aide you in preparing a flavourful, authentic Thai dish. Unbeatable! Walking tours, coach tours and oases found in the myriad parks dotting the city provide all travellers a unique and fresh perspective on this hectic city.
Located in central Thailand, Bangkok borders the Gulf of Thailand and is the largest city in the country with an average of 6.5 Million residents.
Bangkok is a city that doesn't aspire to be anything in particular, rather it is everything. With its beginnings as a small trading post near the mouth of the Choa Phraya River, in just two hundred years, Bangkok has grown outwards and upwards into a striking Asian metropolis, attracting over eleven million visitors per year – almost as many as Paris and London.
