Bangkok Holiday Deals
Bangkok holidays take you to the most visited destination in South East Asia. The cultural and political capital of Thailand, Bangkok is a bustling city, where traditional charm sits alongside ultramodern edifices. With a population of ten million, it is a vast city. Its modern infrastructure, with both an underground and a sky train, makes it easier for holidaymakers avoid the heavy traffic congestion while visiting the many tourist attractions.
The city has been called the Venice of the East as the River Chao Phraya winds through the city and is connected to a large network of canals. A pleasant way to explore Bangkok is to take a river taxi or to book a canal cruise. If you fancy the latter, book one in the evening when the illuminated buildings and shrines are particularly impressive. Thailand has a long Buddhist tradition and the city has over four hundred temples, the most famous is possibly the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. The Grand Palace on Rattanakosin Island should not be missed. With so many museums and art galleries, temples and palaces, you will need to prioritise your sightseeing. Other attractions that children may enjoy are the Butterfly Farm and the Dusit Zoo. As it is a large zoo, there is a mini-train to help you make the most of your visit.
