Full of life, it’s a vibrant city with plenty to entertain. The old city is overrun with sights, with the opulent Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun being the most popular, and you can catch sight of the Emerald Buddha in Wat Phra Kaew, Thailand’s most sacred Buddhist temple. Later, discover the culinary delights of Chinatown by bicycle, gaze in wonder at the gold shops, try the numerous teas and slurp steaming noodles on the roadside.

You will not ride or trek with the elephants, but you can jump in a canoe and paddle down the river, learning about the flora and fauna of the jungle as you go.
