Welcome to Thailand's thrilling capital, Bangkok. Travel to the hotel and settle in ahead of an action-packed discovery tour of this effervescent city. In free time, perhaps take a wander down the tourist mecca of Khao San Road to sample delicious street food and pick up some sweet souvenir deals. Thailand's capital is also worth admiring at night from one of the many rooftop bars and restaurants.
Kick start the day with a walk to the banks of the Chao Phraya River and board a longtail boat to discover the city's khlongs. Next up is a guided tour of Wat Pho to see the huge reclining Buddha. The temple is the centre of the Buddhist religion in Thailand and regarded as the birthplace of traditional Thai massage. The final place to tick off on the sightseeing list is the ornate Grand Palace. More than 220 years old, the palace has served as the official residence of the king and the seat of government but is now a place of reverence for Thais and a popular attraction for visitors. Enjoy a guided tour of the palace grounds, including Wat Phra Kaew, which houses the Emerald Buddha. Afterwards, return to the hotel to relax or spend more time exploring the area.
There's still much to see and do in this sprawling city so why not stay on a while longer to experience all Bangkok has to offer. Perhaps visit Chinatown, flag down a tuk-tuk and explore the winding streets or check out the lively nightlife. Wanting to pick up a last minute souvenir or shop up a storm? There are plenty of bargains to be found in Bangkok's many markets and mega malls. Be sure to sample one last fiery curry or steamy pad thai before you leave!
