A klong trip through the canals that connect the city, which is known as 'Venice of the East', is highly recommend. Like any city connected by water, there's so much life going on here that's well worth seeing.
Katie, Original Traveller
Bangkok, the Thai capital is a big, bustling city that can be a struggle to get around, but there are enough highlights to make staying for a couple of days of your holiday well worth it.
Why we think you’ll love it
- Bangkok is home to fabulous temples, delicious street food and an excellent choice of hotels to choose from: you can stay in beautiful colonial style hotels or go for a villa with a pool and your own butler
- It's also home to fabulous colourful markets - try your hand at some bartering or visit a delicious local street food stall
- Head up to Vertigo and Moon Bar for the very best views of Bangkok. The bar and restaurant are located on the top of a high-rise building and the views of the city at night are incredible - imagine lights as far as you can see, twinkling all around

Bangkok: The Detail
Original Travel can arrange a private city tour to make the process as painless as possible, and the must-sees on a Bangkok holiday should include the following: The Grand Palace and attendant buildings; the 150 foot long reclining Buddha at Wat Po; Jim Thomson's teak house; a wander around Soi Rambutti (a far better version of the tourist-trap Khao San Road) and finally a ride on a long-tail boat on the Chao Phraya River with the odd peek into the more interesting looking tributaries.
