Visit bangkok

We don’t approve of clichés when it comes to travel, but we have to make an exception when describing Bangkok – a city that really does offer something for just about everyone! Known as Krung Thep, which translates to "City of Angels," a visit to the Thai capital offers an exhilarating blend of the traditional and the modern - this is a city where gleaming royal palaces, sacred temples and an ingrained appreciation of tradition mixes with prestigious accommodation, world class shopping and superb dining. It’s unquestionably an essential part of any trip to Thailand.

Today, Bangkok has blossomed into Thailand's most populated city, with 12 million residents as of 2012. The city is rich with cultural heritage and plays a leading role politically, socially, and economically in the country as well as southeast Asia. The city offers a wide range of attractions to satisfy varied tastes, including temples, nightlife, shopping, museum, palaces, and much more.

Best Time to Visit Bangkok

Best time to visit Bangkok is during late November and early December, when the city is drying out from the monsoon season and experiencing a slight cool down, and the holiday crowds have yet to arrive. September and October are Bangkok's (and Thailand's) rainiest months.
