Flights to Bangkok

There are lots of reasons why Bangkok is one of the most visited cities in the world, and they all guarantee an unforgettable trip. Thailand’s capital city has been welcoming people to its shores for decades – from backpackers to luxury travellers – drawn by the amazing Thai cuisine, fascinating culture and famous party scene.

Flights to Bangkok land in Suvarnabhumi Airport (also known as Bangkok International Airport). If you’re visiting for the first time, you should know that Bangkok is a city of extremes, in the best possible way.

When it comes to a place to stay, be sure to choose a location that suits your style of lodging. Certain areas are livelier than others, so if tranquillity is your thing, try one of the beautiful villas on the outskirts of the city. Thai hospitality is renowned across the world – indeed, hospitality brands out of Thailand have blossomed on the international lodging scene. So to get an incredible hotel boasting first-rate service is not difficult.

Once you’ve settled in, the fun begins. You can spend your morning visiting the Grand Palace and Wat Pho, the temple of the reclining Buddha, and by the evening be living it up on the Khao San Road. This busy street, made famous in Alex Garland’s novel The Beach, is a magnet for backpackers – so its bookshops, boutiques and restaurants cater to those on shoestring budgets.

Some of the best things to do in Bangkok are often based on joining in with the locals. Whether it’s cheering on a Muay Thai boxer, shopping in one of the numerous markets or hanging out in the lively entertainment districts, the best thing you can do is to get involved and experience it.

And all of that’s without touching the surface of one of the biggest Thailand attractions of all: the Bangkok dining scene. There are loads of options, whether you prefer fine dining restaurants or would rather grab a snack from a street food hawker. Get started on Sukhumvit Soi 38, a street near Thong Lo Station that’s famous for its food stalls.

You could always pick up some fresh produce at the famous Bangkok traditional floating markets. There are lots of other great shopping options too, including Central Embassy and Silom Complex (which is located on the buzzing Silom Road, a popular spot for a night out).

As the sun goes down, the city seems to put on its own neon light show, and takes on an amazing energy as locals and visitors hustle and bustle to get to their favourite restaurants and nightlife venues. It’s clear that Bangkok is bursting with lots to see and do, at all hours of the day and night.

What to do in Bangkok

Watch a Muay Thai fight

If you want to see an authentic Muay Thai fight, head to Sanam Muay Rajadamnern, also known as Ratchadamnoen Stadium, one of the best venues in Bangkok. Make sure you buy tickets from an official vendor, then sit in the first tier with other tourists, or head upstairs to mix with the hardcore fans of the sport.

Visit the temples

Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn, is Thailand’s most famous temple, and the best time to see it is at sunrise or sunset. You can get up close by paying a small fee to walk up the central stairs. Another temple worth visiting is Wat Traimit, which houses a solid gold Buddha weighing more than five tonnes.

Visit Bang Krachao Island

Well worth a trip out of the city centre, Bang Krachao is a place where life hearkens back to a simpler time. Hire a bike or stroll around the buildings while trying some of the fresh produce sold at various stalls and shops. Lush gardens and small temples make this a relaxing antidote to the busyness of central Bangkok. Check out the temple Wat Bang Krachao Klang.

Where to eat in Bangkok

Rossini's (Italian)

Located at the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit, this Italian has long been a Bangkok fine-dining favourite. The interior makes you feel as though you could be sat in a Tuscan restaurant, but it is the food that steals the show. Leave room for dessert: chocolate foie gras mousse served with foie gras ice cream and fig brule.

Mango Vegetarian & Vegan Restaurant and Arts Gallery (Vegetarian/Fusion)

This vegan and vegetarian restaurant near Khao San Road is the best place in the city to grab a healthy breakfast of muesli, homemade yoghurt and fresh fruit. It’s really popular with backpackers, who keep coming back for the fresh flavours, generous portions and to hang out with the resident kittens.

Tealicious (Thai)

East meets West at this restaurant owned by an English and Thai couple, so expect brilliant Thai food and a great cup of tea. There’s something for everyone, from authentic Tom Yum Goong to spaghetti carbonara and Caesar salad, making it popular with visitors and locals.
