Bangkok — 41 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.
The Grand Palace and Temple Of Dawn (Wat Arun) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Ayutthaya (Wat Ratchaburana (Temple of the Royal Restoration), Wat Maha That, &more), Prasat Nakhon Luang (in Nakhon Luang) and Kanchanaburi (Wat Thewa Sangkharam & Bridge Over the River Kwai). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Wat Pho, shop like a local with Khaosan Road, admire the masterpieces at Bangkok Art & Culture Centre (BACC), and browse the different shops at Siam Paragon.

For more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Bangkok driving holiday planner.

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.
