Bangkok — 32 nights

City of Angels

Enjoy cultural, historical, and culinary exploration during your holiday in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand and the most populous city in the country.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Bangkok: Na Chom Thian (Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden & Upside Down Pattaya), Ayutthaya (Wat Ratchaburana (Temple of the Royal Restoration), Wat Maha That, &more) and Bang Bua Thong (Wat Borom Racha Kanjanapisek Anusorn & Wat Boromracha Kanchanapisek Anusorn Temple). Spend the 21st (Sat) in the animal kingdom at Safari World. Spend the 9th (Mon) exploring nature at Dong Phayayen-Khao Yai Forest Complex. And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of The Grand Palace, stop by Khaosan Road, explore the world behind art at Bangkok Art & Culture Centre (BACC), and indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas.

To find maps, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Bangkok trip planner.

Dublin, Ireland to Bangkok is an approximately 17-hour flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Dublin to Bangkok due to the time zone difference. Prepare for warmer weather when traveling from Dublin in April: high temperatures in Bangkok hover around 41°C and lows are around 31°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Tue) early enough to catch the flight to Mai Khao.

Pearl of the Andamans
Thailand's largest island, Phuket lures both die-hard divers and casual beach lovers interested in spending most of their time basking in the sand and munching on local delicacies. Picturesque lagoons and an abundance of modern amenities may be the main incentive for a Phuket vacation, but you can find plenty of other things to do here once you get your fill of sun and sand. Away from the busy waterfront, the island boasts many gardens, Buddhist temples, museums, and aquariums that deserve a top spot on any traveler's Phuket itinerary.
