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.

Get out of town with these interesting Bangkok side-trips: Southeast Asian Ceramics Museum (SEACM) (in Khlong Luang), Ancient City (in Samut Prakan) and Ayutthaya (Wat Choeng Tha, Wihan Phramongkhon Bophit, &more). There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Wat Pho, see the interesting displays at The National Museum Bangkok, take a stroll through Khaosan Road, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World.

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.
