Search below the 21st-century gloss to find a city steeped in tradition, with beautiful buildings, breathtaking culture, fabulous food, and an inescapable feel-good factor.

The city’s Buddhist legacy is its pride and joy, and the historic temples of Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Pho, and Wat Arun are among the most popular attractions in Bangkok. Wat Phra Kaew, one of Thailand’s most sacred sites, houses the storied Emerald Buddha. For a taste of royalty, visit the adjoining Grand Palace—the former royal residence— notable for its eclectic mix of architectural styles, from Italian renaissance to traditional Thai. A private sightseeing tour of the palace complex will ensure you miss none of its treasures.

Book a table at the Vertigo Restaurant on the 61st floor of the Banyan Tree Hotel to enjoy fine dining al fresco with jaw-dropping panoramas across the city—especially impressive at sunset.
