Thailand welcomes over 30 million visitors a year – and most of those head straight for the capital, Bangkok.
The city skyline is a mix of skyscrapers and temples. The old city hugs a corner of the Chao Phraya River, while the canals set the scene for floating flower markets and fresh fish stalls. Then there are the world-famous night markets, where you’ll find everything from phone covers and flip flops to tiny hand-carved Buddhas.

Bangkok is a fast-paced city with an ancient heart. Temples burrow into the curves of the Chao Phraya River, from the sacred Wat Phra Kaew to the photogenic Wat Arun. A little further south, you’ll find Wat Traimit, home to the massive Golden Buddha. The 18th-century Grand Palace settles by the river, too.
Turn your back on the Chao Phraya, and you’ll find a maze of sky-high shopping centres and air-conditioned entertainment complexes. You can dig through ancient markets in Chinatown or browse the backpacker-friendly bars along Khao San Road.
One thing – just make sure to get your timing right. Bangkok serves up a tropical monsoon climate, so there’s a lot of heavy downpours between July and October.
