Bangkok is a city of contrasts – a city of shining temples, river life, Royal Palaces, gardens, wonderful food and vibrant street life. At every turn there is something to feast your eyes and enrich your experience.
Bangkok is Thailand’s capital, a large city known for ornate shrines, the Chao Phraya River flowing through its heart and the canals providing a means of transport for locals and tourists alike.
No trip to Bangkok would be complete without visiting its temples, shrines and palaces – the opulent Grand Palace and its sacred Wat Phra Kaew Temple, and a short distance away, the Wat Pho Temple with its giant reclining Buddha and on the other side of the river, the Wat Arun Temple with spires and steep steps rising up.

Thai hospitality and is everywhere – the local restaurants to Michelin star restaurants perched on rooftops overlooking a sprawling modern city with a rich heritage
