What do you get when you combine ancient splendour with modern flair? You get Bangkok, and mate, you’ve got to get over there. This place is a smorgasbord of bright neon lights, grand Buddhist temples and beautiful people, both residents and visitors. From peaceful spiritual retreats to live performance art, Bangkok holidays will open your eyes to a whole new world.
No matter what direction you head from your accommodation in Bangkok, there’s action at every hour. Head over to the Grand Palace and explore its Outer Court, Middle Court and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. The latter is one of the most revered Buddhist sites in the entire country and comes with a strict dress code, so don’t show up looking like a stiff. Since the temple is located on the grounds of the Grand Palace, you should explore the Royal Reception Halls where the antique throne is located. No, it’s not a toilet.
Let’s be honest—the temples are unbelievable, but you came for the party. And friends, Bangkok knows how to party. Khaosan Road is a famous (possibly infamous) area only one km from the Grand Palace. From sunrise to sunset this place thumps like no other. Check out some of the local shows—some are spiritual, others will leave you laughing your butt off or searching for your soul at the nearest church. Either way, you can count on our Bangkok accommodation to be there for you when you need to kick back and relax afterward.
Your Thai adventure will start at Suvarnbhumi Airport (BKK), 25 km from downtown, or Don Mueang International Airport (DMK), 28 km from downtown. From BKK, take the Airport Rail Link straight to central Bangkok, where you can hail a taxi to get you to any of the Bangkok hotels. Once in the city, taxis, buses (they’re free) and the Sky Train can get you from Point A to Point B quickly. But if you want to go for a thrill ride, get on a motorcycle taxi and say a “Hail Mary!” as your driver weaves through traffic like he’s starring in one of the Fast and the Furious flicks. Want control of your own destiny on the road? Check out lastminute.com.au’s sweet car hire options so you and your travelling buddies can explore the area around Bangkok at will.
The party never stops, so there’s never a bad time to travel to hotels in Thailand. The months between November and February are great because of less frequent showers and mild temperatures. Check out the Loy Krathong Festival, which takes place every November. Maybe you’d prefer some wet weather? If so, visit anytime between May and August and enjoy everything the monsoon season throws at you. The celebration of the Buddha’s first teaching occurs in July, so parties don’t stop just because of a little rain.
Dodge traffic and find adventure in the streets during your Southeast Asian getaway. Go through lastminute.com.au’s selection of hotels in Bangkok and turn one into bundle it with one of our flights to Bangkok. Use the cash you save on souvenirs, so you can shower that special someone with a boatload of Emerald Buddha figurines.
