Bangkok: An Overview

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.

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.
