Modern mega malls sit alongside historic village homes in Bangkok, where it’s a joy to get lost amongst the maze of street markets, religious temples, skyscrapers and full-flavoured food stalls. From the legendary backpacker haven of Khao San Road to the traditional charms of Chinatown and Banglamphu, the buzzing energy and beautiful contradictions in Bangkok will ensure an exciting stay from beginning to end.
Among Bangkok’s chaotic streets lies an array of peaceful Buddhist temples, revered for both their historic significance and exotic beauty. Two of the city’s most famous landmarks are the dazzling Grand Palace and golden Wat Phra Kaew temple, while the world-famous 46-metre-long reclining Buddha, among other interesting artefacts, is housed in Wat Pho.
Exploring one of the atmospheric night markets, found throughout the city, is a memorable Bangkok experience. For an array of vintage fashion, furniture and collectables, head to Rot Fai Market. If you’re looking for knock-off brands to take home, then Patpong Night Market is the place to go.
Vibrant flavours permeate the air in Bangkok, as its legendary street food is a low-cost and delicious way to sample Thailand’s local culture. Spend an evening snacking on local favourites such as barbecued seafood, roasted chestnuts and dim sum at Chinatown’s Yaowarat neighbourhood, or stroll along Charoen Krung Road for fragrant noodles, steamed dumplings and roasted duck.
A popular attraction throughout the year, Chatuchak Weekend Market is one of the world’s largest markets and is sure to impress even the most seasoned shopper. Navigate your way through the maze of alleyways to find the category of goods organised into sections, from fashion to homewares, food and even pets. Be sure to arrive early to beat the crowds (and the sizzling heat).
With two international airports, Suvarnabhumi Airport and Don Mueang International Airport, travellers can easily reach Bangkok from anywhere in the world. The quickest and easiest way to travel to Bangkok’s famous sights in the inner city is on the BTS Skytrain and Underground (MRT), while express boats and river taxis on Chao Phraya River offer access to the historic floating markets and riverside attractions. For shorter distances, motorbike taxis are an exhilarating way to get around the city, while tuk-tuks offer a memorable experience you won’t find at home.

Consider The Riverside suburb, and stay at the ibis Hotel to be placed close to the Skytrain, to take you out for day trips around the city. Trips on the river are always fun for kids, and they will enjoy the shopping centres of Siam close by. See the impressive Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew temple for architecture at its finest, or visit the Asiatique Night Market, with over 1,500 stalls, street food vendors and a Ferris wheel that lights up the night. The historical region of Rattanakosin is surrounded by canals and filled with temples and other fun sights. Book into Chakrabongse Villas to be centrally located. Take kids to Madame Tussauds, in Siam, or visit the Siam Amazing Park, which is filled with water-based activities and fun. The Mercure in Bangkok is a great base to be near Siam.
The city has something for everyone, and you cannot go wrong when booking Bangkok accommodation in areas like Siam (the shopping destination) or the Chatuchak region. Here, you can enjoy the Weekend Market and the Or Tor Kor Market, with stalls for shopping and food supplies as well as on-the-go eating. The Reno Hotel will offer great comfort while being close to both areas. Visit the Royal Barges Museum for interesting old boats in Thonburi; see Wat Pho, one of the oldest temples in Phra Nakhon; or take a khlong tour along the rivers, to see how the older generations lived in wooden huts on stilts. Base yourself in hotels with easy access to all these sites, such as Prince Palace or Eastin Grand.
You have endless choices when looking for a fun holiday in Bangkok – and the great part is, most areas can be reached easily with modern public transportation. Impressive bars are a huge part of the Bangkok nightlife, and the Sky Bar, at 63 storeys high, is well worth a visit. The National Museum in the city showcases art and artefacts, and Lumpini Park is a huge urban oasis based right in the middle of the city. Take in the culture and spirituality and let the bustling streets take you on adventures, with sights and wonders around every corner. Hotels in central Bangkok, such as the Golden Tulip, are the way to go to stay in the vibrant heart of the action.
