Experience the sights, sounds and smells of this incredible city of contrasts. Expect the unexpected in the place that perfectly balances chaos and calm.
Bangkok, home to ten million people, is a city of contrasts. Much like the ancient Chinese symbol in which yin and yang are in balance with one another, so Bangkok combines some of the most frenetic and exciting urban areas that you are likely to encounter with experiences of pure tranquillity and relaxation.
Travelling to the centre of Thailand’s largest city plunges you into a pace of life and plethora of intense sights and sounds that is simply unique. Traffic in the city seems to obey few of the rules of the road! While Bangkok’s marketplace is a hive of activity and a throng of busy, energetic people, with Bangkok’s market hawkers seemingly unerring in their relentless pursuit of bargains. The theatre that unfolds before your eyes is also supplemented by the most distinctive and pungent aroma that wafts forth from the dozens of food carts preparing local dishes.
Experiencing the centre of Bangkok is both unique and moving, but one that requires a bit of relaxation to recover for some! Luckily, this is a city that blends the startling with the serene. Religion is part of daily life in Bangkok, and breaks from the frantic pace of city life are common, with locals often burning incense as a godly offering before continuing with their regular daily lives.
