day
1
Bangkok

Arrival and transfer to your accommodation in the capital.

Think of Bangkok and see skyscrapers, glass and steel, sleek sky trains and high society. See the sun sink and the city lights go on from any of the Bangkok’s rooftops. Seeing the city and the river stretch out below you is an unforgettable sight.

Back on ground level cruise the streets in your noisy tuk-tuk, past China Town and Silom Road. Browse either at Patpong night bazaar or the new Asiatique on the riverside.
