Welcome to Bangkok! As one of the world’s top tourist destinations and regarded as one of Asia’s most exciting, Bangkok is sure to impress. Experience for yourself this unique sprawling city where traditional East meets modern West. Exotic incensed temples, luscious gardens, and the hustle and bustle of urban life mix together and evoke an unmatched ambience. Despite the city’s chaotic concrete congestion, Thailand’s capital is full of amazing attractions, hidden gems and surprises around each turned corner.
A trip to Bangkok would not be complete without a visit to its magnificent and serene temples, testaments to the city’s culture and heritage. The Grand Palace on the banks of the Chao Phraya (the river that divides Bangkok in two) is a place not to be missed featuring Wat Phra Kaew, the temple of the Emerald Buddha made entirely of green jade.
Why not then visit Wat Pho, the temple of the world’s largest reclining Buddha or Wat Arun, the magnificent Temple of Dawn for the ultimate spiritual experience that will invigorate your senses. If you want to soak up a view of Bangkok at large, head up to the 77th floor of Baiyoke Sky Hotel, one of the tallest in the world.
Feed your shopping addiction at one of Bangkok’s many malls and markets of all types. A few thousand baht in hand will keep you occupied for days down Sukhumvit Road, Bangkok’s main shopping drag. Experience Bangkok’s vibrant shopping scene at the Chatuchak Weekend Market and find everything from antiques and silverware to snakes and Siamese Fighting Fish.
Maybe pick up some great buys by moonlight at the Suan Lum Night Bazaar or Patpong Night Market. Fancy a bit of shopping on water? The Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is for you. Rent a small row boat and sample the fresh produce of local farmers as you float down through a river village of perched stilt-houses.
After a day of bargain hunting, recharge at a restaurant or have a few bites at one of countless sidewalk street vendors that line the pavement. In Bangkok, you will never go hungry with a vast array of enticing foods to tickle your tastebuds, from your Pad Thais and Tom Yums to the more unusual selection of deep fried insects!
At night, head down to Bangkok’s main party district Silom with restaurants, clubs and bars that cater to all tastes and likings. Sip on a cocktail on an open-air rooftop bar/restaurant like Vertigo and Sirocco, and look out on the dazzling neon lights to a warm buzz of city music. Surrender yourself to the incredible sights, sounds, and smells of Bangkok. Find a Bangkok airline to suit your needs with Jetabroad.
