Book a bangkok holiday
Bangkok is known as the City of Smiles and a Bangkok holiday is wonderful to rejuvenate the body and spirit.
The combination of people, culture and weather make Bangkok a very special place for a holiday. The city itself is magnificent, with exquisite archaeological sites and you will find the local residents are much more relaxed than those of other big cities in Asia. It is very noticeable how people in Bangkok smile all the time, a result of their Buddhist heritage.
The city is famous for its versatility and multiple points of interests. The heart of the city is traditional with bargain street stalls selling everything from clothes to grilled barbecue chicken. The traditional heart is surrounded by more affluent suburbs with some of Asia's largest shopping malls. Here you will also find an array of glitzy restaurants and clubs.
If you don't want to see it, it is easy to avoid the city's red-light district in Patpong. However many holiday-makers go there out of curiosity and the area also has a night market for consumer goods. Whilst taxi fares are very reasonable, most of the sightseeing can be done comfortably by Skytrain (BTS) or Underground train (MRT). Must sees include ancient Buddhist temples such as the Grand Palace and the Emerald Buddha that sparkle in the sunshine.
Bangkok is also known for its extraordinary museums and a short walk in beautiful Lumpini Park is a must for all nature lovers. Bangkok truly is the City of Smiles and many visitors bring home a souvenir of their Bangkok holiday, whether it is an antique, a Buddha or a sculpture.
