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 some cultural insight at The Grand Palace and Temple Of Dawn (Wat Arun).

Spend the 1st (Sun) in the animal kingdom at Safari World. There's much more to do: make a trip to Wat Pho, buy something for everyone on your list at Siam Paragon, take a stroll through Khaosan Road, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.

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.
