The wonderful times awaits you in Bangkok, Thailand
Constructed 227 years ago, Bangkok still maintains its old world charm and is one of the most fascinating cities in the world. With its rich heritage and grand history, it has many a story to tell. One of the main attractions to look out for, are the beaches of Pattaya, which are located south east of Bangkok and considered the entertainment capital. Other islands including Phuket, Koh Samui and Krabi are also worth visiting in Thailand.
A long tail boat on the River of Kings is a great way to see the more famous sights - the Grand Palace, the Temple of Dawn and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha - and visit the Floating Market. For shopping, the skytrain will whisk you to air-conditioned malls, providing great views of the city along the way, and the underground will take you out to the worlds biggest open-air market at Chatuchak.
There is a hardly an aspect of Thailand left which has not been geared for the travellers. Save for monks, holy wats and Buddha images, there is nothing in Thailand, it appears, that cant be touched, felt or sampled. Its no wonder that Thailand has the reputation of being the land of 3Fs. Food, fun and, a way to make friends. Its in these spaces - the fresh markets off the tourist map - that you will find the most authentic Thai food.
If variety is truly the spice of life, then Thailand is surely one of the most exciting holiday spots on the planet. Modern and outward looking, but culturally unique, this diverse Kingdom boasts of all the stuff that tropical dream holidays are made of.....from hill-tribe meet and greets and misty mountains up in the north, to luxury shopping and glitzy nightlife in the buzzing capital Bangkok, to idyllic beaches and world class diving down south. Whatever your tastes, budget or timeframe, no one struggles to fill their days and nights here.
