Welcome to Bangkok, the capital of the Kingdom of Thailand. Life, culture and adventure flourish in this city of 8 million people! Bangkok is a city that will amaze you.
The cultural and social center of the country is one attraction whose origins go back to when Bangkok was a small fishing village on the eastern bank of the Chao Phraya. The city is deeply connected to the river.
Throughout its history, the city's waters have been reshaped with ever new canals - including Rattanakosin (the historical center of Bangkok), which became an artificial island in the center of which the new Royal Palace and Royal Temple (Wat Phra Kaeo) were built.
In addition to historic Bangkok, today there is also a dazzling and bustling Bangkok, with modern buildings and glass skyscrapers looking up towards the sky.
In both historic and modern Bangkok you will find luxurious, charming or traditional hotels - tailored to your ideas of a perfect accommodation!
The mighty Chao Phraya River winds and entwines the city with its river veins and canals, breathing life into Bangkok! Over a distance of 372 kilometers, the river flows through the country before emptying into the Gulf of Thailand just outside Bangkok.
Along the banks of the Chao Phraya are several sights and monuments, including the Royal Palace and the historic temples of the city.
For a first impression of the city, we recommend a guided boat tour through the riverways of the city, from the water you get the best overview of Bangkok and its impressive buildings such as the temple Wat Pho, Wat Arun, Wat Traimit and of course Wat Phra Kaeo (Temple of the Emerald Buddha).
While sightseeing or exploring the nightlife of Bangkok at night, you should take the chance to discover the classic, typical Thai cuisine. Dare to visit a street food restaurant in the heart of the city. In the numerous local markets you will find culinary delicacies freshly prepared and spicy!
