Bangkok is the capital city of Thailand, and it combines religious and historical sites with bustling markets, modern shopping centres, and pulsating nightlife. Experience the best of this lively city – start by choosing Cathay Pacific for frequent flights to Bangkok.
Things to Do in Bangkok
Bangkok is home to some of Thailand’s most sacred Buddhist temples, including Wat Phra Keaw, which houses the revered Emerald Buddha, Wat Arun, and Wat Saket. Explore the opulent Grand Palace. Museums range from the normal, like the National Museum, to the obscure, such as Siriraj Medical Museum. Siam Paragon, MBK, and Central World are amongst the many malls, but for local goods, head to the numerous day and night markets. Watch a Muay Thai show, and enjoy a traditional massage. Join the locals at the countless street food vendors around the city.
Getting Around Bangkok
The BTS Skytrain connects newer parts of the city, and the underground MRT train, local buses, and river ferries connect everywhere else. Ride an iconic tuk tuk at least once. Taxis are available.
