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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Wat Pho and Bangkok Art & Culture Centre (BACC). Venture out of the city with trips to Ancient City (in Samut Prakan), Ayutthaya (Wat Maha That, Wat Chaiwatthanaram, &more) and Woodland Muangmai (in Nakhon Chai Si). Spend the 25th (Sat) in the animal kingdom at Safari World. There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of The Grand Palace, shop like a local with Chatuchak Weekend Market, admire nature's wide array of creatures at SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Temple Of Dawn (Wat Arun).

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.
