Bangkok Thailand – The bustling capital city of Thailand and 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. Flying time 12 hours from the UK.
There are few better ways to see Bangkok than from the famous Chao Phyra River that cuts through the city. Be amazed by how much the river influences everyday life, from transferring smartly dressed executives to and from their offices, saffron robed monks on the way to temple, children going to school. Everyone uses the river, indeed many live on stilts alongside it.
