Enjoy cultural, historical, and culinary exploration during your holiday in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand and the most populous city in the country.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Wat Pho and Temple Of Dawn (Wat Arun). Your inner history buff will appreciate The Grand Palace and Wat Benchamabophit (The Marble Temple). There's much more to do: explore the galleries of Jim Thompson House, shop like a local with Chatuchak Weekend Market, wander the streets of Khaosan Road, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Snake Farm (Queen Saovabha Memorial Institute).

A tropical adventure in Khao Lak, a cluster of villages on the west coast of Thailand's main peninsula, ensures tourists have plenty of time for basking on beaches boasting a serene and secluded ambience.
Get some cultural insight at Praya-Nakarach Cave Temple and Wat Suwan Kuha (Cave Temple). Relax by the water at White Sand Beach and Bangsak Beach. Explore Khao Lak's surroundings by going to Wat Rat Upatham (Wat Bang Riang) (in Thap Put), Phang Nga (Ton Pariwat Wildlife Sanctuary & Phang Nga Elephant Park) and Pakarang Beach (in Takua Pa). And it doesn't end there: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, enjoy the sand and surf at Coconut Beach, take in the dramatic scenery at Ton Chong Fa Waterfall, and hunt for treasures at Bang Niang Market.
