Bangkok holidays

Spend a few days getting to know the many sides of Bangkok’s personality. This fascinating city has so much to offer and you’ll soon realise that anything goes. Where else do sacred temples exist alongside colourful nightlife and incredible hi-tech shopping centres?

Embrace the leisurely pace of life as you explore on holidays in Bangkok. Travel by tuk-tuk and experience the fascinating chaos of the city’s roads. Or take one of the long-tail taxi boats that swarm along the Chao Phraya river and see The Grand Palace and Temple of the Emerald Buddha on the east bank. Sample tantalising Thai street food along the thriving Khao San Road, which comes alive at night. Or look for tourist trinkets on nearby Soi Rambuttri, which has a more earthy charm.
