A lively and engaging city with so much to explore
The capital city of Thailand, Bangkok, is an exciting, buzzing city, with plenty to see and do. Don’t miss the opulent Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew within its grounds which houses the revered Emerald Buddha dating back to the 14th century. Perhaps take a cruise on the Chao Praya River to see the city from the water and view the Wat Arun (Temple of the Dawn). A visit to a floating market is highly recommended, or perhaps take a tuk tuk ride through the bustling China town district. There are also plenty of shopping opportunities in Bangkok and endless possibilities to sample the excellent Thai cuisine.
