Bangkok holidays - Glamorous, bustling and diverse
With traditional temples and palaces rubbing shoulders with glam shopping malls and all-night party spots, Bangkok is an eclectic city with a little bit of something for everyone. This is a city that ramps up the intensity and is famous for it. Eat cheap street food or enjoy five star dining, sip expertly-mixed cocktails or party at pulsating clubs; in Bangkok you are truly spoiled for choice.
A must-see city with so much to experience
Thailand’s capital city is both famous and infamous – a heaven of decadence, debauchery and culinary delight.
There’s a very special atmosphere to Bangkok because it contains just about every kind of person from street hawkers, Buddhist monks, sharply-dressed business types, backpackers, luxury tourist families, bloated expats, Lady boys and ‘working girls’ – all thrown together in an environment free from pretentiousness.
Bangkok is like everything you expected and like nothing you imagined, and short stays are the best to avoid a complete sensory overload.
Why visit Bangkok?
- There are a number of amazing historical monuments such as the Grand Palace
- The diversity of food on offer is just amazing – you can get everything from authentic Thai food for a few baht to expertly-cooked steaks for the same price as a hotel room for the night
- Truly unbelievable nightlife unlike anywhere else in the world
- Bangkok hosts a number of festivals and celebrations throughout the year, and things have a habit of getting very fun and very hectic
- Khao San Road may well be the spiritual home of the backpacker but there is something here for just about everyone
