The hidden gems of the back streets of this surprisingly safe capital include the myriad of street markets, where in addition to picking up a souvenir, visitors can sample the street food that fuels Bangkok’s smiling population. The remarkable architecture of old Thailand includes the peaks of the Grand Palace, while the temples of the ‘old city’ on Rattanakosin Island are incredible.
The nightlife is legendary, even if social orders demand that most establishments must close before 2am. The heat and humidity of Bangkok can at times be overbearing, which is why relaxing in the leisure complex of first class hotels like the Shangri-la is often the way forward.
Golf is booming around Bangkok, with highlights including the beautiful Lakewood Country Club, and the Thai Country Club, which is a fully fledged professional tour venue. The levels of service are impeccable throughout, underlining the fact that Thailand’s capital is an amazing golf holiday destination.
