Bangkok

Stopover - from £32

The fascinating capital of Thailand, a modern metropolis set within the cultural landscape of the East with ancient temples, bustling markets, busy waterways and vibrant nightlife. Bangkok is a shopaholics dream; the perfect stopover destination for those wishing to bring home a bargain!

Highlights:

  • Floating Markets
  • Grand Palace
  • Bridge Over the River Kwai
  • Emporium Shopping Centre
  • Dusit Palace Park

Your Stopover

For an authentic Thai experience jump aboard a traditional Tuk Tuk for an inexpensive and unique way to get around Bangkok. Alternatively, take the ultra modern and comfortable sky train which will give you a bird’s eye view of the city. There is plenty to see in do in and around Bangkok.

Visit the Grand Palace, the famous home to the Emerald Buddha. Wat Po is the spiritual home of the famous Reclining Buddha and some of Bangkok’s oldest temples. You may also enjoy Jim Thompson’s House, a traditional Thai house that was once home to the American Silk entrepreneur. For shopping, visit Emporium Shopping Centre, a hive of designer shops and the latest fashion or explore Chinatown with its colourful streets littered with congested markets. Dusit Palace Park offers the chance to relax and enjoy a performance of traditional Thai dance.

Outside of Bangkok, journey to the Floating Markets to absorb the colours, smells and sounds of Bangkok’s famous shopping experience. Add on a stop to the Bridge Over the River Kwai. Just two hours from Bangkok the bridge is a brutal reminder of the Japanese Occupation during World War II. Chao Phraya Express allows you to journey down Bangkok’s waterways, stopping at many riverside attractions. Also visit Ko Kret, Bangkok’s car-free island and one of Thailand’s oldest settlements.

Further Afield

Thailand is renowned for its pristine beaches and you don’t have to travel far from Bangkok to find a fine example. Less than two hours south of the city you will find the lively Pattaya Beach or if you prefer a more relaxed option there is the quieter Cha Am Beach. For an extended stopover travel to the delightful tropical island of Koh Samui surrounded by the crystal clear waters and powder soft white sand beaches.
