Sightseeing in Bangkok provides endless options. Bangkok, the cultural and commercial centre of Thailand, is steeped in tradition and yet has a modern influence. In this bustling metropolis, soaring skyscrapers and ultra modern shopping malls can be found next to colourful temples and mesmerising royal palaces. Thai and Chinese cultures are intertwined in the culture and the architecture.
There is plenty to see and do in this modern city, so don't be put off by its size or the traffic.
Explore the city, sample the local foods, shop for fine silk, silverware and local handicrafts or pamper yourself with sumptuous spa treatments. And then there is the vibrant night life.
There are also many fascinating places within a few hours of Bangkok that can be visited in a day. These include the historic city of Ayutthaya, the province of Kanchanaburi and the famous “Bridge over the River Kwai, and the famous floating markets.
One could easily spend a week in and around Bangkok and you would have something new to see and do everyday.
There are many ways to go sightseeing in Bangkok. See the city from a long-tailed boat on the Chao Phraya River or dine alfresco on the 60th floor of a five-star hotel and admire the panorama from above.
However, of course we think the best option is to see Bangkok on a bicycle tour
