Enjoy a whirlwind of culture and cuisine in Bangkok
To prospective visitors, Bangkok is a hectic city with multiple opportunities for enjoyment and sightseeing. From the moment you begin exploring its streets, you'll meet a world of vibrant colours and scents that will never leave you. While the towering skyline glistens in the distance, you can explore striking street markets at any time of day or night, sip a cocktail packed with fresh ingredients at a rooftop terrace, or enjoy a tranquil swim in a pool lined by palm trees as the hustle and bustle carries on in the streets below.
If you want to take your tastebuds on a trip around the world, Bangkok holidays provide the opportunity to do it. If fine-dining is high on your list of priorities, you can explore the growing list of Michelin-starred restaurants. For those who'd rather grab a quick bite to eat before heading off on their next adventure, a street vendor is never more than a few steps away. Once you've sampled the flavours Bangkok has to offer, you can immerse yourself in a world of delightfully fresh orchids, glistening temples, and floating markets filled with charm and character.
Immerse yourself in markets during your Bangkok holiday
From fish that fight to silks that seem impossibly soft, Bangkok's markets have it all. Chatuchak is arguably the biggest, offering more variety and sellers than any other market in Thailand's capital. With thousands of booths providing locally crafted pots, antique wood hand carved into exciting designs and hill-tribe outfits, it's not to be missed if you're hoping to take a taste of Thailand home with you. Nonthaburi market will entice all of your senses. Featuring spices sourced from across Thailand, smoky grills producing dishes few can resist and the sound of bargaining techniques that are centuries old, it will leave you feeling as though you've entered a rugged yet exciting world. All of which you can enjoy during your Bangkok holidays.
Explore Bangkok's temples
As architectural feats that are dotted around the city in all their splendour, Bangkok's wats are central to local culture. Wat Phra Kaew features the Emerald Buddha and while there, you can take in the sights of the former royal palace, which is home to treasures and murals that are startlingly majestic. Sri Mariamman Temple is a flamboyant dedication to local religious beliefs.
