Known as “Krung Thep” which translated to “City of Angels”, Bangkok offers heavenly discoveries that will make your holiday truly out of this world!
Sightseeing for All
The Thai capital has lots of attractions that can be easily accessed if based at a Siam hotel Bangkok has to offer. “Must visit” sites include the Grand Palace home to the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Temple of the Reclining Buddha and the Temple of Dawn. Of course, there’s the lively Chinatown area, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) and Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World too!
Bangkok has some of the region’s best malls including ICONSIAM, Siam Paragon, CentralWorld and MBK. There are markets too such as the Chatuchak Weekend Market and Damnoen Saduak Floating Market which offer a whole different experience. It’s little wonder that properties like Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel even offer special shopping gurus to help!
The street food scene in Bangkok is amazing and foodies will be spoilt for choice be it at restaurants, roadside eateries or markets. Among the highlights are:
Tom Yum Goong (spicy shrimp soup)
Pad Thai (Thai-style fried noodles)
Moo Ping (grilled pork)
Som Tum (salad made from green papaya)
Khao Niao Mamuang (mango sticky rice)
From clubs and pubs to ladyboy shows and go-go bars, the nightlife in Bangkok offers one big party playground. Of course, if you are planning some club hopping make sure to add venues such as The Club at Koi, Onyx and Sing Sing Theatre to your itinerary.
