Bangkok

The Ultimate Guide

An exotic destination of beauty and chaos.


Exotic and enchanting, the Thai capital of Bangkok is a rich mix of beauty and chaos. Along the banks of the Chao Phraya river, ornate temples share the skyline with shopping malls and business towers, while throughout the city the streets bear the inescapable smell of hawker food.

Night markets rife with shopping opportunities, live entertainment and food outlets kick off until the wee hours of the morning, as do the clubs, which are an infamy of the city.

Venture out of city centre and you’ll discover colourful floating markets, extensive weekend markets, ancient temples complexes and local beach resorts. Flights to Bangkok operate daily from Australia’s major cities on both budget and luxury airlines, making it both a convenient and budget savvy holiday destination.
