Bangkok has been described by Lonely Planet as “a city where the familiar and the exotic collide like the flavours on a plate of pàt tai.” In the hurtling time capsule of this once small trading post, life is continuing to prosper in one of the most diverse destinations in the world.
Discover how the Grand Palace and the temples effortlessly entwine with the frenetic streets of Bangkok. Weave through traffic in a tuk tuk before venturing out to Wat Pho, home to all 46 metres of the reclining Buddha. Then cross Chao Phraya River where in 1782 King Rama I built some of the world’s most beautiful temples with the canals earning Bangkok its nickname, “Venice of the East”.
The ultimate beach-hopping destination and Thailand’s oldest resort, Hua Hin has wow factor printed into its pristine sands. The town bursts with history and creativity like no other destination: from its sweeping beaches to forested peaks; from the twinkling temples to the plush condominiums, you will find a vibrant visual concoction throughout. There’s a sunbed on the beach with your name on it!
