Bangkok

Grand Palace by night

Exhilarating, colourful and fun, Bangkok is a city that leaves you wanting more. Discover a city of sparkling palaces and gleaming temples where visitors rub shoulders with saffron-robed monks. Hold onto your hat as you sweep along the river in a long-tailed boat admiring riverside architecture and observing everyday life for families living in stilt houses. Hunt for bargains in the street markets where the vendors are disappointed if you won’t enter into some friendly haggling over price. Escape the noise and heat of the streets by browsing the designer shops in the dazzling, air-conditioned shopping malls. In the late afternoon meander through the open space of Lumphini Park and watch the locals at play and then get a good view of the city, as the sun goes down, from high up in one of the many rooftop bars. Finally board a converted rice barge for a delicious Thai dinner cruise.
