About Bangkok

Mention the word ‘Bangkok’ and it conjures images of romance – serene temples, august parks and languid days spent lying on a ‘sampan’ adrift on the canals. It’s a city that never quite escapes its dreamy façade. Yet in reality, Bangkok has quietly blossomed into an ultra-modern city and one of Asia’s leading cultural destinations. As the sun rises over the Chao Phraya River, Bangkok bursts into life. To sample the city’s legendary bustle, jostle your way through the markets around Khao San, where salesmen compete for your attention and smells (good and bad) assault the senses. The Grand Palace’s golden light steals the show, a monument of mind-blowing opulence. Get a case of mall fever at MBK, followed by a moonlit saunter through Santichaiprakarn Park.
