Bangkok, Thailand

One of the most cosmopolitan cities in existence, Bangkok is not a destination you want to miss out on. Full of culture, fascinating temples and endless shopping there’s never a dull moment.

Temples are not just a significant part of Thailand’s religion; they are also an interesting attraction for tourists. Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of Emerald Buddha) and Wat Pho (Temple of the reclining Buddha) are the cities most famous landmarks. Wat Phra Kaew is regarded as the most important Buddhist temple in Thailand, situated just behind this temple is Wat Pho, the largest temple in Bangkok and famed for its 46 metres long gold platted Buddha. Any visit to Bangkok would not be complete without viewing the phenomenal temples Bangkok has on offer.

Situated near the main attractions of Bangkok, The Amari Atrium hotel is ideal accommodation if you’re looking for an easy relaxed holiday. It accommodates a number of facilities within the hotel whilst providing a luxury and outstanding service. The hotel also offers a complimentary shuttle bus service to nearby tourist attractions, shopping malls and markets. The hotel is located a 10 minute walk away from Petchburi underground station. What more could you want with a hotel?

Other attractions include; Chinatown, Floating Market, Chao Phraya River & Waterways, Chatuchak Weekend Market, Soi Cowboy (Red light district with 40 bars) and Jim Thompson’s House (Museum)
 

We Liked: 
Thailand's beach resorts boast idyllic white-sand stretches lapped by clear water. Bangkok claims to be the world’s top gem-cutting centre. Rubies and sapphires are indigenous to Thailand, while jade is imported from Burma.
Weather: 
Peak season is from November to February. It’s hottest from April to May and rainier but still sunny from June to October. There are seasonal variations between beach resorts; for example, east coast beach resorts have more sun and less rain from May to June. Northern Thailand is generally cooler than Bangkok in winter and hotter in summer
