What to do in Bangkok
There's a massive amount of interest in Bangkok, from ancient temples and intricate culture to modern shopping centres and lively nightlife. Bangkok is a fascinating mix of cultures and life, which becomes more interesting the more you get to know it. The Grand Palace is a good place to introduce yourself to Thailand's history. Take a river bus for a different view of Bangkok. At night, shop in the night markets or sample the local fiery cuisine. Don't let Bangkok's raucous nighttime reputation deter you though - the more racy elements of Bangkok are confined to specific locations, and easy to avoid if you prefer to.
Where to stay in Bangkok
Hotels in Bangkok are located throughout the city, with many of the five star hotels on the river. Elsewhere, hotels on Silom Road and Sukhumvit Road benefit from easy access to the Skytrain and underground, making getting around easier, plus both areas have a good range of bars, shops and restaurants close by. Other locations for hotels in Bangkok such as Chinatown offer a more local atmosphere.
Holiday ideas to Bangkok
We'd generally suggest three or four nights in Bangkok before moving on to another part of Thailand or the Far East. A Bangkok plus beach twin centre package holiday is extremely popular, or combining Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Thai beach makes a fascinating multi centre holiday. Bangkok also makes a great gateway to the Far East, allowing combinations of Bangkok plus Bali, Bangkok plus Hong Kong, Bangkok plus Singapore and more.
To the first-time visitor, Bangkok may come as a bit of a culture shock - modern skyscrapers sitting next door to ancient temples, chaotic traffic and bustling streets. Bangkok is certainly the most Asian of the Far East cities, and a few days will reveal the treasures of this wonderfully fascinating capital. Bangkok's infamous Patpong district is great fun for a spot of souvenir hunting, or lively Sukhumvit has a host of bars, restaurants and shops.
