Go temple hopping

Nicknamed the City of Angels, Bangkok is a spiritual capital, housing an array of sacred temples.

Explore the ornate Wat Traimit to see the famous Golden Buddha statue. At night, the landmark Wat Arun temple looks spectacular – with its spire lit up and the reflections shimmering in the surrounding water.

The Temple of the Emerald Buddha can be found in the grounds of the Grand Palace. It features a reclining Buddha, considered by many to be the most sacred in Thailand.

Explore the floating markets

Hop on a boat to see Bangkok from the many waterways that flow around the city.

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is one of the most popular markets in Bangkok. Here you can get a taste of local life and buy fresh produce. Prepare to be impressed by the skills of local women as they delicately balance fruit and vegetables on wooden sticks.

Head to Amphawa Floating Market to shop where the locals shop. You’ll be able to pick up quirky items here, like artsy postcards and handmade clothing.

Experience the quieter side of the capital with a visit to Ko Kret, a manmade island on the northern outskirts of Bangkok.

Known for its pottery, the handmade terracotta pots produced here are sold across Bangkok.

It’s a foodie island too. Try the kanom krok – coconut pancakes – and the island’s signature dish of tort man nor galah. These are deep-fried patties filled with herbs and mushrooms and served with a sweet and sour sauce.

Things to know before you fly to Bangkok

When visiting temples, you should remember to dress modestly – covering both shoulders and knees. You’ll often be asked to remove your shoes at religious sites too.

meals Local cuisine

Bangkok is a hub for Thai food, with brilliant dishes to be found everywhere – from street food vendors to Michelin-starred restaurants.

Try pad thai, a noodle dish that has found success around the world, or tom yum goong, a spicy soup made with classic Thai ingredients like chilli, lemongrass and fish sauce.
