Once known as the Venice of the East, Bangkok exudes both chaos and charm. A latticework of quiet canals, vibrant night markets and scores of towering skyscrapers; the cacophony of noise, smells and sights here is utterly mesmerising.
Experience the fantastic shopping found in the malls or meandering the markets along The Chao Phraya River and visit some of the most impressive and sacred temples in the world in this invigorating city. The ancient heritage of Bangkok can be seen best by boat, the striking Grand Palace, the six-ton Golden Buddha, the Golden Mount and the klongs of Thonburi just some of the main highlights. Foodies can savour the smells and tastes of local street food on our many culinary experiences through the city and later enjoy a bird’s eye view of Bangkok from one of the famous rooftop bars that top this imposing skyline.
