5* Amari Watergate:

This 5 star property is situated in the heart of Bangkok. It is ideal for shopping whether it be street side sellers of the likes of MBK shopping mall where everything can be found. It is close to  the monorail and has a number of excellent restaurants close by not to mention the street food sellers which offer some of the tastiest food in the country!

5* Le Meridien:

A real gem set on the outskirts of Patong offering you peace and tranquility but still close enough to the heart of Phuket when you feel like living it up a bit.

Elephant Hills:

This company offers a unique 2 night experience from exploring the jungles of Khao Sok National reserve to setting off to chill out on the floating camps on Cheow Larn Lake.

Night food tour by Tuk Tuk:

A night food tour of Bangkok by TUK TUK is a really great way of seeing the city at night in an unconventional form of transport and taste some of the most amazing food the city has to offer. The tours test out a couple of main course dishes as well as deserts plus visit a pub or two with amazing vistas. You get to visit China Town plus visit the Palace at night which has some spectacular views.One of the highlights was visiting the top place to have Phad Thai in Bangkok where q’s often snake down the street due to its popularity.

Ampawa and Damnoen floating market.

Ampawa  and Damnoen floating markets are about an hour out of Bangkok depending on traffic. Damnoen is probably more popular with travellers given the size and diversity however Amapawa market while maybe a bit smaller is a little less cluttered and a more personal local feel to it. You can travel up and down both canals by long boat sitting side by side with people selling food and various textiles. The other option is to walk alongside the canals through the land based stalls which sell cosmetics, local art and textiles plus an array of restaurants selling some yummy food.

Maeklong Railway Market:

Mae Khlong market is situated about an hour outside of Bangkok and is reached by road. On entering the local village you walk through the throng of  street sellers which are generally promoting fresh food items such as fruit, fresh vegetables, local thai food which can be packaged to take away or a variety of freshly made sweets.

Mae Khlong market is fresh food market situated along the railway tracks that run through the market. The street vendors are based on either side of the tracks and selling anything from fresh vegetables, fruit to locally caught sea food. What makes this market so interesting is that apart from the market being based alongside the tracks an actual train passes through this market 5 times a day!  People browse the different items for sale  and then a 5 minute warning is given and all the sellers quickly pack up all their goods and move outside of the tracks in order for the train to pass through.

Awnings are pulled aside in order to allow the train to pass through the market. It passes through at a relatively slow pace to allow tourists from both the train and on the ground to savour this unique experience.

Bangkok Cycle Tours:

This is the ideal way to tour Bangkok. A bit quicker than walking but not as fast and zooming around in a car. You get to meet the locals of the city and explore some of the lesser known parts of the city.This tour is for everyone and not advanced level of fitness is required.
