Bangkok – Terrific Thailand
Welcome to the electric city of Bangkok, capital of Thailand. The rush of the city swirls up and around you, from the riverbanks and into the horizon, within the temple spires and rising into the sky. The diversity of modern and ancient mixes into a beautiful and sometimes overwhelming example of what Thailand is and can be. A private transfer will take you to your luxurious accommodations where that haste starts to make sense; the world slows down beneath the high-rises and swooping traffic. Hidden behind the façade of the city is the grace and charm of its history, where golden temples continue to accept pilgrims and visitors alike, where the quiet streets are brushed with the scent and shade of Banyan trees. Painters sit beside the road and capture the serenity of the leaves draping over the shops and people. The streets calm, the air is filled with the fragrance of fresh noodles and basil. Everything feels possible, beautiful, mystical, and yours.
