What to expect on your Bangkok holiday
In Bangkok, modern life and Thai tradition coexist side by side. Colourful markets and quiet temples intermingle with soaring skyscrapers and twelve-lane motorways. It’s a chaotic, cultural feast for the senses. So it’s easy to see why Thailand’s vibrant capital has become a must-visit destination. A holiday to Bangkok provides you with an endless number of experiences.
By day, you can wander through the sprawling grounds and ornate buildings of the Grand Palace, or barter for souvenirs at Bangkok’s famous floating markets. Feeling hungry after all that exploring? Tuck into authentic Thai street food – there are stalls all over the place. Or, if you’re looking for something fancier, check out one of Bangkok’s best rooftop bars. The most famous one is probably Sky Bar – you might recognise this glamorous watering hole from The Hangover: Part Two.
Of course, no holiday to Bangkok would be complete without a night on the town. You’ll find Bangkok’s best nightlife on the infamous Khao San Road. This popular spot has a carnival atmosphere after dark, when street performers and street food vendors come out to play. Grab one of Thailand’s famously strong ‘bucket’ cocktails from a street seller, then dance the night away in one of Khao San Road’s nightclubs.
Why visit one place when you could visit two? Your holiday to Bangkok could be a stepping stone to a beach break in Krabi, Phuket or Koh Samui. Or perhaps you’d like to head north and see elephants in Chiang Mai? Or cross the border and spend a week in Cambodia? Whatever you’re looking for, find a great deal with Netflights today.
