Bangkok – The Bustling Capital City of Thailand

 

Bangkok is one of the main gateways for travel around the country and the region. Towering high rises dwarfing ornate and colourful temples. Traditional Klongs (waterways) alongside packed roads.

Smartly dressed executives walking alongside saffron-robed Buddhist monks, usually with both on their mobile phone.

Obvious opulence and consumer indulgence alongside abject poverty. 

Getting There

Flying time from the UK is 12 hours.

Weatherwise

Hot and humid year-round, with heavy showers usually experienced July to November.

Pleasures

Without a doubt, Bangkok is one of the most charismatic cities in the world. Instant Asia, from the moment you arrive. It is a city of extreme contrasts, but to many, that is what makes it so fascinating. Exciting, and the nightlife is all you have heard and more, plus with one of the very best restaurant scenes in the region.

Fantastic shopping, either in roadside markets or ultra-modern shopping malls. Super sightseeing. Hotel standards are some of the very best. Great sightseeing with so many unique experiences. Try the modern over-rail sky-train which is a great way to explore the city and an alternative to the congested roads.

Realities

Looking at our client comments, 90% absolutely love the city, 10% don’t – with nothing in-between. It is busy, hot and (at times) rather pungent, and in places totally in your face authentic. It has a sleazy side, but this is easily avoidable.
