The capital of the country Thailand and also its largest and most developed city, Bangkok offers a one of a kind mix of grand temples, dynamic city lifestyle, and skyscrapers that shapes its distinct identity.
As for luxury accommodations, Bangkok serves as the home to several 5-star hotels offering top of the line services and amenities. These include the Okura-Prestige Bangkok, Hansar Hotel, Sofitel Bangkok, Sukhothai, and Shangrila.
To get your shopping fill, the Central Embassy, Gaysorn, and Siam Paragon are just three of the best spots where you can find luxury goods and some of the top brands in the world. If you are craving for a more adventurous way of shopping in a place that might not be as lavish, there are 8,000 stalls in the Chatuchak Market that spreads on an area of 35 acres that offers all types of merchandise you can ever imagine.
You also shouldn’t miss out on the floating markets if you want to buy some fancy produce. Local food, fruits, and vegetables are prepared on the open grills on top of small boats.
Just so you know, Bangkok is also a certified kid and family-friendly city with lots of exciting activities for every family member that are guaranteed to fill up the itinerary of your family vacation. Astra Theater’s Thai puppet show, Silom’s Snake Farm, and Dusit Zoo are some great areas where kids and adults alike will surely have a fun time.
With lots of options for public transportation and two international airports, you will never have any issue as you get to and go around Bangkok.
Chiang Mai, the unofficial second city of Thailand, has its own distinct identity that sets it apart from Bangkok’s metropolitan ambience and far from Koh Samui and Phuket’s tropical beaches.
The city can be found in the country’s northern region and nestled on the mountains that have the most spectacular backdrops for the luxury hotels found all over the city. Four Seasons Chiang Mai, Anantara, 137 Pillars, and Dhara Dhevi are only some of the area’s highest rated luxury hotels.
