Experience a few days in Bangkok to explore this vibrant, sometimes chaotic, metropolis. Wherever you look in this diverse city, you'll see the old and cultured mingling with the bright and the new. Whether it's the stunning opulence of the palaces, the chaos of the streetlife or the extremes of the nightlife, Bangkok offers an experience not to be missed at amazing value for money.
Bangkok is most people's first introduction to this fascinating country and there is really nowhere else quite like it. Love it or hate it, you really must see it! There are fabulous hotels, which offer real value for money. Whether you choose one located on the banks of the Chao Phraya River or one located in the Sukhumvit/city, you will never be far from the shops and culture.
Bangkok's chaotic streets are notoriously crowded with traffic so travelling by road can be painfully slow, but taxis are plentiful and cheap while a journey by tuk tuk is a hair-raising experience not to forget. Alternatively, the clean, cheap and very efficient skytrain (BTS) and underground (MRT) rail systems connect the main shopping, entertainment and business areas of the city making it easy to navigate your way around.
The city's most famous landmark is the spectacularly elaborate Grand Palace complex, which was the former residence of the Thai royal family but is now used for ceremonial purposes. Incredibly well preserved the complex is home to several impressive buildings including the highly revered Wat Phra Kaew (the Temple of the Emerald Buddha). Other notable temples within the city include the exquisitely decorated Wat Arun (the Temple of Dawn) and Wat Pho which houses the 150 foot long Reclining Buddha.
The Chao Phraya River, with its backdrop of temples and hotels, is a constant hive of activity with longtailed speedboats and water taxis whizzing to different points along the river, or heavily laden barges chugging sedately upstream. Join a tour of the river and explore the ramshackle world of criss-crossing canals (klongs) which are lined with precariously perched wooden houses.
Boasting over 50,000 places to eat Bangkok has just about everything on the menu, so whether you choose to sample appetising delights from roadside food sellers or dine out in style you're sure to find something to tantalise your taste buds. Another notable feature of the city is the nightlife, which in recent years has evolved to offer everything from sophisticated rooftop cocktail bars and jazz lounges to chic clubs, microbreweries and so much more.

Located on southern Thailand's east coast, Krabi is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Awaiting you at this perfect escape are white sand beaches, soaring cliffs, a colourful marine life amid the abundance of coral reefs and an unhurried pace of life which is sure to restore your soul.
Krabi's myriad of bays and coves has some of Thailand's least commercialised beaches, where tropical mangroves flank soft white sands and the crystal clear azure waters are a diver's paradise. Popular Ao Nang has a large bay with scenic beaches and a variety of bars, restaurants and souvenir shops aimed towards the tourists. 15 minutes north of Ao Nang are the powdery sands of Klong Muang where the well-established village has a few shops and simple restaurants. Accessible only by boat, stunning Phra Nang has a pristine beach and sparkling waters with numerous limestone karsts.
The scenic splendour of Krabi is hard to ignore with incredible natural sights seemingly at every turn. Head inland to Khao Phanom Bencha National Park where the main attraction is Nam Tok Huay To, a spectacular 11-tier waterfall with numerous pools for swimming. Alternatively, you could opt to follow one of the many hiking trails that lead into the heart of the forest, keeping your eyes peeled for monkeys.
Rock climbers of all abilities have long been lured to the spectacular limestone crags of Krabi, particularly around the beautiful peninsulas of Railay or Tonsai, while the exotic fish and colourful coral below the waves also tempt snorkellers and divers. Countless uninhabited offshore islands or the nearby Phi Phi Islands are also within easy reach by longtail speedboat.
Krabi Town is the charming provincial capital, where you can while away a few hours in the cosy cafes of the hilly streets, or follow the riverside walkway down to the fishing port, where restaurants specialise in seafood. In Ao Nang restaurants serve a variety of cuisines including Thai, international and of course seafood, while nightlife in Krabi tends to revolve around the open-air bars and restaurants rather than clubs and discos. Krabi Town and Ao Nang offer the best shopping opportunities and include specialist shops, department stores and markets piled high with fresh produce or handicrafts and souvenirs.
