Bangkok is a vibrant, sophisticated, and exciting city. Known as the “City of Angels,” it is an exhilarating location filled with a feast of attractions – amazing Buddhist temples of wondrous beauty, magnificent palaces, modern shopping centers, world-class restaurants, scenic parks, and a beautiful culture.
Nowhere else can you find such an exotic mix of old and new as in Bangkok. Majestic sacred temples stand proudly alongside towering skyscrapers while commuter boats are still the preferred mode of transport on the busy canals.
The architecturally inspiring palaces of Thailand provide a fascinating insight into Thailand's rich culture. Shimmering in gold, the spectacular Grand Palace is without a doubt the city's most celebrated landmark. Dazzling temples are also an inimitable part of Bangkok’s heart and soul. A visit to Bangkok is most definitely incomplete without visiting at least two of them: Wat Phra Kaew and Wat Pho.
If shopping is more your style, Bangkok offers some of the largest and most modern shopping centers in Asia boasting a mix of local designers and international labels. The Chatuchak weekend markets and the renowned floating produce markets are not to be missed. With culture, shopping, and dining, your visit to Bangkok is sure to be an enriching and rewarding one.
