A Holiday in Bangkok – Excitement worth Pounds, Enjoyed for Pennies

Bangkok is a city offering all the attractions and facilities of a modern forward thinking city, while still being steeped in history, that’s what makes Bangkok a top holiday destination, offering tourism for all budgets. From the glamorous night life to special exotic local delicacies, and from beautiful and magnificent Buddhist shrines to the themed festivals & events, Bangkok splashes the famous ‘Thai way’ of life all over.

Accommodation Options
The colourful city of Bangkok offers accommodation options for every budget and taste from 5 star resort hotels to guest houses, cheap hotels in Bangkok, youth hostels, backpackers hostels in Bangkok and apartments accommodation. You can find a lot of bargains for budget accommodation in Bangkok, during both, the tourist season and also during the summers. Booking over the internet will offer additional discounts as the best rates for early bookings can be found online.

Popular Places and Venues of Entertainment
The best thing about a holiday in Bangkok is that you never get bored, as every event, every leisure activity and everything here goes with the policy – be happy and have fun. Amongst the main events, the Thai New Year in the second week of April, Royal Ploughing Ceremony and the Queen’s Birthday Celebration in May and August respectively, the color festival and King’s birthday celebration in December stand out. The streets are filled with stalls, colors, lightings and offer various fun activities. Visitors can join in the fun.

Things to Do During a Holiday in Bangkok
With so much happening in Bangkok, the things-to-do list during a holiday in Bangkok depends on when you arrive here. Bangkok has some beautiful historical worth-a-visit monuments like the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Wat Arun and so on. Bangkok offers a lot of art galleries, museums and concert halls, prominent amongst these include National Gallery of Thailand, Bangkok Metropolitan Museum of Contemporary Art, Thailand Creative & Design Center to mention but a few.

Also, visiting the Bangkok floating market, Siam Ocean World, Lumpini Park, Chinatown, Grand Palace, Jim Thompson House all get accommodated in the to-do list when here. The best part about the to-do list in Bangkok is that it won’t put a big dent in your wallet if you know how to barter (Haggle for the best prices).

Travelling to and Within the City
Bangkok has 2 international airports well connected to Asian, European and Australian cities and even to other cities of Thailand. While travelling within the city, Tuk-tuks offer a cheap (definitely negotiable, prior to boarding) and fast (considering the traffic of Bangkok) transport option, while there are taxis, motorcycle taxis and trains as well. The city transport is also very reasonable, safe and effective.

Currency and Languages Used
Baht (฿ or THB) is the official currency used here with conversion facilities safe, easy and widely available all over the city. Thai is the official and the most widely spoken language here. Due to tourism and immigration, in Bangkok and Pattaya, English is at least understood in the hospitality line, so you shouldn’t have much trouble communicating.
