If you’ve never been to Bangkok, then you’ve never truly experienced Thailand. This capital city—which sits on the Chao Phraya River—is bursting at the seams with amazing street food, hidden markets and a wild and crazy nightlife—yes, everything you’ve heard about Bangkok holidays is true. A living, breathing oxymoron, Bangkok is a jumble of climate-controlled malls and towering skyscrapers alongside 200-year-old village homes and ancient Buddhist temples.
The city is best taken in by a traveller ready for unplanned adventure. Start your day with a boat ride, and end it with a stroll down the tiny streets of Chinatown, a few minutes of meditation in a temple or an impromptu Muay Thai class. Anything is possible with lastminute.co.nz’sBangkok flights!
Can’t wait to get started? Hop on the Airport Rail Link and slide on into downtown on the Express Line. Our car hire options will get the job done, too, as well as the usual taxi services. But if you really want to experience Bangkok, jump on the space-age Skytrain or flag down a tuk-tuk. You’ll never forget either experience for very different reasons.
