Enjoy cultural, historical, and culinary exploration during your holiday in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand and the most populous city in the country.
Visiting SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World and Jomtien Beach will get you outdoors. Wat Pho and Wat Maha That will appeal to history buffs.

There's much more to do: step into the grandiose world of The Grand Palace, take in the spiritual surroundings of Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun), wander the streets of Khao San Road, and explore the activities along Chao Phraya River.
