When to go
Curated for you
If you think that Bangkok’s nightlife offers just bad karaoke and sleazy go-go bars, think again. The city boasts a large number of trendy clubs where Thai locals and tourists dance until the early hours every day of the week. The most famous discos are concentrated in 2 well-known streets, which makes for a convenient night out in Bangkok.
The worldwide trend of boutique hotels has found its way to Bangkok. Numerous small luxury hotels have sprung up all around the Thai capital. Each hotel offers something unique, such as a classic, ultra-modern or theatrical decor. Reserve a room in a Bangkok boutique hotel for a luxurious stay with a personalized touch.
A Bangkok shopping mall often looks more like an entertainment complex than a shopping centre. The locals flock here not only to shop but also to eat, drink and watch a movie. And there are many different malls, each with their own flavour and style. Malls are usually open from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm and are part of a real Bangkok experience.
Everyone who visits Thailand wants to take home some special souvenirs from this unforgettable country. Bangkok offers a large selection of wonderful shops which sell beautiful gift items, from traditionally woven silk to Oriental antiques, authentic Buddha sculptures and elegant wood carvings.
Bangkok can be a very chaotic city with busy streets, colourful markets and loud traffic. And even though the bustling city vibe has its unique charm, things here can get very intense. A little bit of luxury makes life a lot more bearable. Helicopter and limousine tours and luxury taxi boats add a surprising and exclusive touch to your Bangkok visit.
Bangkok is a paradise for those who love markets; you can spend days browsing the stalls, inhaling the oriental fragrances and admiring the colourful wares. If all this browsing makes you hungry, stop by one of the many food stalls that prepare fresh fruit, fish or meat. The markets sell a great variety of wares: plan ahead to choose which markets you would like to visit.
The Thai capital has quickly developed into a fabulous nightlife destination with hip bars, trendy nightclubs and excellent restaurants. Bangkok boasts a large number of rooftop bars with stunning views of the city. After spending the day bargaining at local markets or visiting majestic temples, sit back with a delicious cocktail and enjoy your surroundings.
Bangkok is not only vibrant by day but also – and maybe even more so – by night. The city is famous for its spectacular nightlife, from hip rooftop cocktail bars and nightclubs to immense dance performances. Visit a dinner show for a typical Thai experience and enjoy an evening full of entertainment. While the performers act out the history and stories of Thai culture through dance, theatre and music, you will enjoy Thai cuisine at its finest.
ARTS & CULTURE
The Royal Palace, an unparalleled example of Thai architecture, is just one of Bangkok’s many wonders. Every imaginable part of the complex is decorated. The detail on the tens of thousands of roof tiles, gilded woodcarvings and the mythical guards is simply incredible. As the complex consists of dozens of buildings, one visit is simply not enough.
ARTS & CULTURE
Thailand has tens of thousands of temples. One of the best known is Wat Arun in Bangkok. This complex on the Chao Phraya River is very special; it is encrusted with thousands of pieces of porcelain that glisten in the light. The view across the river and city is equally as impressive as the rich collection of mythical figures and Buddha statues on display here.
