The sprawl of the south east

As famous for its party culture as it is its rich history, Bangkok thrives in the day and the night. Enjoy shopping at the Chatuchak Market or visit The Grand Palace, the home of Thai Royalty. When you’re done, The Wat Arun Temple is an incredible place to begin understanding Buddhist beliefs or enjoy a relaxed boat ride along the Chao Phraya River.
