Fascinating, intoxicating and chaotic, Bangkok deserves at least 48 hours to experience its temples, palaces, markets, malls and street food.
Undoubtedly the city’s most famous landmark is the dazzling gold-spired Grand Palace complex, formerly the Thai royal family’s residence but now used for ceremonial events. Other notable temples include exquisite Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn) and Wat Pho, home to the gigantic Reclining Buddha.
The Chao Phraya River adds zest to the city landscape with its backdrop of temples and hotels. It’s a constant hive of activity with water taxis and longtail speedboats whizzing along, or heavily laden barges chugging sedately upstream. A network of criss-crossing canals (klongs) lead off the river and trickle past precariously perched houses, floating villages and markets.
On land, the skytrain and subway are your best way to get around, although no visit would be complete without a hair-raising tuk-tuk ride.
Whether you’re looking to snag a bargain or splurge on designer labels, shopping in Bangkok is a day and night activity not to be missed. Top spots include MBK Centre, CentralWorld, The Emporium, Siam Paragon, Chatuchak Market, Asiatique the Riverfront and Chinatown. In addition, tours to floating markets just outside the city are also recommended.
Another big draw is the food, with over 50,000 places to eat. From humble street stalls with their aromatic aromas to classy fine dining restaurants, there’s always tasty treats on the menu.Nightlife in Bangkok has evolved over recent years with the emphasis now firmly on swanky rooftop bars with panoramic views, chic nightclubs and lively jazz lounges as well as microbreweries and hip cocktail bars.
Known as Thailand's "Riviera", this internationally renowned resort is within an easy drive of Bangkok and is a popular pleasure-seekers paradise. Once a sleepy fishing village, Pattaya today is a city full of diversions: great beaches, brilliant shopping and a colourful nightlife.
Pattaya Beach's crescent shaped bay is comprised of three sections: north, central and south. Of the three, north Pattaya is the most peaceful, yet far from secluded, with hotels, restaurants, bars and shops lining the sandy shores. Central and south Pattaya represent the hub of the resort and is where you'll find an abundance of hotels and resorts, shopping malls, markets, restaurants and entertainment venues.
When you tire of lazing by the pool or on the sands there are seemingly endless watersports to tempt you, including windsurfing, parasailing, jet-skiing, snorkelling, banana boat rides, scuba diving and deep sea fishing. Landlubbers aren't left out either, with activities such as golf, tennis, bungee jumping and go karting to keep you occupied.
There are numerous places of interest in and around Pattaya including the Sanctuary of Truth (Prasat Satchatham), a giant wooden temple, situated right on the seafront, adorned with intricate carvings and sculptures; Big Buddha Hill has its very own golden "big Buddha" statue while the road leading up there has panoramic views over the bay. Other options include Ramayana Water Park, Underwater World, Flight of the Gibbon (a zipline canopy tour) and Mini Siam.
After Bangkok, Pattaya is Thailand's top destination for shopping. Aside from traditional Thai-style markets and large modern shopping malls, the best areas are the southern stretch of Pattaya Beach Road and on Pattaya Second Road, which are literally packed with hundreds of tourist-friendly shops and stalls.
When it comes to nightlife, Pattaya comes alive. Walking Street is one long entertainment zone and filled with loud music and neon-lit signs advertising the pubs, open-air bar complexes, go-go bars, ladyboy shows and nightclubs which vie for your attention and your Baht! Dining is definitely a treat and all around Pattaya there are dozens of food vendors and noodle stalls along with trendy restaurants featuring Thai and international cuisine such as Mexican, Italian, Greek, Scandinavian and Japanese.
A few miles south of Pattaya is Jomtien, an ideal option for those seeking a quieter resort with a beautiful stretch of coastline popular with watersport enthusiasts. Its sandy beach is fringed with pine trees and a selection of restaurants and cafes border the beach. The nightlife of Pattaya is just a short drive away if you don't want to miss out on the nightlife!
