Enjoy cultural, historical, and culinary exploration during your holiday in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand and the most populous city in the country.
Step out of Bangkok with an excursion to Wat Maha That in Ayutthaya--about 1h 20 min away. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at The Grand Palace, get a taste of the local shopping with Chatuchak Weekend Market, make a trip to Wat Pho, and pause for some serene contemplation at Temple Of Dawn (Wat Arun).

For ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Bangkok planning site.

London, UK to Bangkok is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 7 hours traveling from London to Bangkok. Prepare for much warmer weather when traveling from London in September: high temperatures in Bangkok hover around °C and lows are around °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Fri) to allow time to travel to Nai Yang.
