Bangkok is an adventure...hectic pace, smiling crowds, the wonderful disorder of it’s geography, the constant mix of old and new, the heady night-life and the amazing culinary scene!
Much more than a stopover before you break free for the beach, Bangkok is abuzz with attractions which often get overlooked by travellers who pack more bikinis than guidebooks. It’s a mega-metropolis that brings you the ultra-modern luxuries desired by today’s travellers and that truly traditional taste of Thailand you came for.
Fly daily from London Heathrow with Thai Airways.
With a city skyline that still reflects its past, you can swap the West’s samey skyscrapers for the opulently ornate spires of Wat Arun or the Royal Palace complex. Even the more modern towers around Lumpini Park have an Eastern edge to them. In a place where past and present collide, the past wins hands down. Enjoy a 3-night stay at your Bangkok hotel.
Fly on to Krabi with Thai Airways.
Krabi’s sunshine scene put it firmly on the map when Thailand’s tourism was just kicking off – and it’s stayed on it ever since. Generations of backpackers and beach-seekers have been lured in by its velvety sands, its Buddhist temples, its hundreds of beach-bordered islands, and the night markets and bars of Krabi Town.
The temptation to spend every sunny second on the sands may be too much. But, if you have the willpower to put your beach read down, you can be rewarded with truly local sights like the sacred Buddhist Tiger Cave Temple or trips to its offshore islands (where you can reunite with those all-important sands). Enjoy a 8-night stay at your Krabi hotel.
Fly home to the UK with Thai Airways.
