WELCOME
To the first-time visitor, Bangkok may come as a bit of a culture shock - modern skyscrapers sitting next door to ancient temples, chaotic traffic and bustling streets. Bangkok is certainly the most Asian of the Far East cities, and a few days will reveal the treasures of this wonderfully fascinating capital. Bangkok's infamous Patpong district is great fun for a spot of souvenir hunting, or lively Sukhumvit has a host of bars, restaurants and shops.

WHAT
TO DO
There's a massive amount of interest in Bangkok, from ancient temples and intricate culture to modern shopping centres and lively nightlife. Bangkok is a fascinating mix of cultures and life, which becomes more interesting the more you get to know it. The Grand Palace is a good place to introduce yourself to Thailand's history. Take a river bus for a different view of Bangkok. At night, shop in the night markets or sample the local fiery cuisine. Don't let Bangkok's raucous nighttime reputation deter you though - the more racy elements of Bangkok are confined to specific locations, and easy to avoid if you prefer to.
WHERE
TO STAY
Hotels in Bangkok are located throughout the city, with many of the five star hotels on the river. Elsewhere, hotels on Silom Road and Sukhumvit Road benefit from easy access to the Skytrain and underground, making getting around easier, plus both areas have a good range of bars, shops and restaurants close by. Other locations for hotels in Bangkok such as Chinatown offer a more local atmosphere.
HOLIDAY
IDEAS
We'd generally suggest three or four nights in Bangkok before moving on to another part of Thailand or the Far East. A Bangkok plus beach twin centre package holiday is extremely popular, or combining Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Thai beach makes a fascinating multi centre holiday. Bangkok also makes a great gateway to the Far East, allowing combinations of Bangkok plus Bali, Bangkok plus Hong Kong, Bangkok plus Singapore and more.
GETTING
THERE
Bangkok is about an 11 hour flight from the UK. Package holidays to Bangkok are available from various UK airports - holidays shown here are based on direct flights from Heathrow, for the most straightforward journey. Flights from Gatwick and Manchester are available, sometimes at a lower price, while departures from other UK airports including Glasgow, Newcastle and Birmingham are also available.
WHAT TO
DO NEXT
Have a look at our great range of hotels in Bangkok, and check out our twin centre and multi centre holidays combining Bangkok with Northern Thailand and the beaches of Thailand, or other parts of the Far East for a Far East multi centre package holiday. If you see something of interest call one of our friendly reservations staff on 020 8989 0970, or fill in a quote and we'll check availability and get back to you. If you're not sure what's best for you, ask to speak to one of our staff who've visited recently.
