Bangkok has been the capital of the Kingdom of Thailand since 1782 and, with a population of around eight million, is the country's largest city. In the dazzling metropolis, the rich tradition of Thailand meets its multifaceted future: futuristic hotels and buildings as well as modern city districts stand next to imposing temples and palaces.
Bangkok will inspire you with its richness of facets and historical sights!
The Chao Phraya is the city's lifeline and its numerous canals crisscross the city's neighborhoods. The waterways therefore also offer the ideal opportunity to explore the city on a boat tour.
Bangkok enchants people with its rich cultural offerings and the culinary specialties of Thai cuisine! In the city's markets you will discover numerous small restaurants where you can try typical Thai dishes such as Khao Pad, Pad Kra Pao or Kuai Tiao.
A special highlight: the large temples Wat Pho, Wat Arun and Wat Phra Kaeo! But also the smaller temples of Wat Traimit, Wat Saket or Wat Ratchanatdaram are worth a visit, especially if you are only a few days in Bangkok.
An absolute highlight and a spectacular sight promise the Loi Krathong and the Yi Peng Festival of Lights. The Thai festivals, which are traditionally celebrated on the day of the full moon and the following day in the twelfth month of the Thai lunisolar calendar, are an impressive cultural highlight and inspire thousands of travelers from all over the world every year!
While the Buddhist Festival of Lights amazes people with thousands of small paper lights rising into the Thai night sky, the Loi Krathong features numerous small rafts decorated with candles, flowers and incense sticks being lowered into the water.
Both festivals celebrate a new beginning and the letting go of worries, anger, resentment and bad things. It is also a tribute to Buddha.
During these days there are big parades and processions all over the country, as well as colorful street festivals where people celebrate and enjoy life. Two impressive and unforgettable festivals that will make your stay in Thailand a unique experience!
