Enjoy cultural, historical, and culinary exploration during your holiday in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand and the most populous city in the country.
Explore hidden gems such as Wat Chaiwatthanaram and Wat Phra Sri Sanphet. Visit Wat Pho and Wat Phanan Choeng for their historical value. When in Bangkok, make a side trip to see Wat Yai Chai Mang Khon in Ayutthaya, approximately 1h 20 min away. There's much more to do: step into the grandiose world of The Grand Palace, see the interesting displays at The Ananta Samakom Throne Hall, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Erawan Shrine (Thao Mahaprom Shrine).
