Enjoy cultural, historical, and culinary exploration during your holiday in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand and the most populous city in the country.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Historic City of Ayutthaya and Wat Saket. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Wat Pho and Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit).
