Holidays in Bangkok
The area and getting around
Bangkok, the city capital of Thailand, is a multicultural metropolis of contrasts where everyday life of the locals’ city life collides with the exotic. It is home to huge shopping centres right next to little homes or any of the hundreds of gold-spired temples. The tuk tuks with tourists share the road lanes full of buses and cars moving slowly and honking away as they go. Walk around Bangkok will allow you to see lots of busy street markets, neon-lit strips full of shops, street vendors and food stalls in every corner. You do not go to Bangkok to have a three course meal but to snack and try several Thai nibbles. The skyscrapers overlook the city and make it look very cosmopolitan and yet a traditional destination.Same, same, but different
You can move around the neighbours and discover the beautiful Buddhist temples and visit them, respecting the rules. Explore the hidden markets on a boat trip, wander the narrow streets of Chinatown, watch some monks buying the latest trends in mobile communications or take the Skytrain, known as BTS, and head to Sukhumvit to immerse yourself and enjoy local nightlife. Take the train and move a few miles out of the city to explore wonderful temples and interesting sites outside the city. It will take you back to ancient times! As you can see, Bangkok is a unique destination to add to your list. Discover the city with the moto: “Same same, but different”.
Travellers and activities
Thailand is well-known by its picture-perfect beaches of crystal clear waters and long strips of white sand fringed by palm trees and lush vegetation. If you travel to Bangkok and you need a dose of sun you will definitely look for one of the stunning beaches Thailand is known for. Those beaches are more in the south of the country or on certain islands but you can still have very good beaches you can go to just a few hours from the city. Get on a bus from Ekamai Bus Terminal and head to Bang Saen, 1.5 hours outside of Bangkok. Hua Hin is a busy area very popular amongst families. Cha-am is a bit closer than Hua Hin but also really enjoyable. A bit further south, you find an exotic paradise of calm in Pranburi. Start thinking where you are going to take care of your tan!Bangkok for temple lovers.
Thailand has impressive temples around the country that captivate and draw travellers from all over the world. The golden domes, the tall spires and the contrast of bright colours of the shrines decorated with flowers and scented with incense are an image of the real Bangkok that most visitors are looking for. You can see the stunning Grand Palace, where the Thai king is based. Admire Wat Arun, also known as the temple of Dawn, one of the most recognised silhouettes in the country. Wat Phra Kaew, commonly known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha is regarded as the most sacred Buddhist temple in the historical centre of the city but also in Thailand. The marble temple Wat Benchamabophit Dusitvanaram is a Buddhist temple of high gables, stepped-out roofs and elaborate finials. The city is a hub of temples scattered all over and visiting some of them is a must in Bangkok. Explore the city and enjoy these marvellous and unique sites.

Top 5 travel tips in Bangkok
Khao San Road is a neon-lit busy street in the centre of Bangkok. This road about 1 mile long, is a cauldron of backpackers, street vendors, traditional items as souvenirs for tourists, restaurants, bars and loud music. The atmosphere is one of those you can hate or just love, but it is definitely worth a visit! It is close to the Grand Palace but not to public transport so the best way to access this area is by tuk tuk, bus or taxi. But don’t just stay in Khao San and go explore the sidestreets (sois) which retain a real Thai feel.2. Chatuchak market
Do you like haggling with vendors and find real bargains? The Thai markets are the place to go to! Bangkok has several markets around the city but the most famous one is the huge Chatuchak Weekend Market on Kamphaeng Phet 2 Road. People know it as JJ Market and it has more than 15,000 stalls divided into 27 sections where you can find clothes, essential oils, arts and crafts, accessories, Thai food, souvenirs and much more. This market is worth the hype for sure, so do not miss your visit and happy shopping!3. The ancient ruins of Ayutthaya
The outskirts of Bangkok have some gems you must visit before you leave. Ayutthaya is a city north of Bangkok with the impressive ruins of the old city, an archaeological site of palaces, Buddhist temples, monasteries and statues. The beauty of these buildings and the park where they are located is a major highlight during your stay. It can be easily visited on a day trip from Bangkok, either by train, bus or taxi.4. The Khlongs of Thonburi
Thonburi was the old capital of Thailand. The area still remains quite untouched and locals spend their lives around the khlongs (canals) trading, selling and buying all sorts of fruits, veggies and goods in their wooden stalls. By long-tail boat you can explore the channels and get the feeling of their everyday life and way of living. The network of khlongs has been made by the locals themselves, including the well-known Khlong Mon and Khlong Bangkok Noi, lined with old shacks, dilapidated sheds and full of other locals on their boats selling shrimp crepes, some rice snacks and corn-on-the-knob.5. Bangkok views from a rooftop bar
On the 63rd Floor of the State Tower there is the Sky Bar at Lebua Bangkok. Standing almost 250 metres above sea level it allows you to have breathtaking views of the Thai capital. The Sky bar also appeared in The Hangover Part II. Sip a Hangovertini cocktail made of green tea liquor or have a romantic dinner for two at Sirocco, one of the world’s highest rooftop restaurants. And why not enjoy an amazing sunset with shades of red, orange and yellow as a backdrop of Bangkok’s skyline?
