Things To Do
An exciting brew of traffic and temples, luxury hotels and labyrinth-like streets, the “City of Angels,” is a hectic heaven. Cutting through the heart of the city, the magnificent Chao Phraya River, “the River of Kings” provides easy access to Bangkok’s numerous Buddhist temples and the Grand Palace, as well offering insight into Thai life. Chatting women wash laundry at the water's edge while boisterous children bathe in the shallows. Treat your eyes to a parade of colorful canoes laden with everything from juicy mangoes to jolly-faced souvenirs at the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, or paddle up to one of the floating markets and order a bowl of steaming noodles. Alternately for an unforgettable experience by rail embark the Eastern & Oriental Express bound for Chiang Mai or Singapore.
