Welcome to Bangkok
Thailand’s capital city and its abundance of gold leaf–coated temples, air-conditioned mega malls, and incredible street food draws millions of visitors every year. City tours may include samples of authentic Thai food; visits to the Temple of the Reclining Buddha (Wat Pho) and the Grand Palace complex; or a walk through the 24-hour flower market. No Bangkok visit is complete without a ride in a tuk-tuk or a long-tail boat cruise on Chao Phraya River to see how locals live. Bonus: Day trips from Bangkok make farther afield attractions such as Ayutthaya and Damnoen Saduak Floating Market accessible.
