Bangkok has a bit of a reputation for its rowdy nightlife, but only focusing on its red light district is unfair to this bustling metropolis.
During the daylight hours, you’ll see that Bangkok is perfectly respectable, if a little chaotic. It has a bevy of gorgeous Buddhist temples to showcase, as well as busy markets and the absolute best pad thai around. Seriously, it is so delish, you might gain a little Buddha belly yourself if you aren’t careful!
You’ll need to sleep all that deliciousness off, and fortunately, the amazingly lavish hotels in Bangkok can be booked for a steal, especially with Wotif on your side.
If you are a fearless road warrior, than jump into a Bangkok car rental from Wotif. During the day, make your way to Old Bangkok, where beautiful temples and palaces replace the sharp skyscrapers of the downtown area.
In particular, the Grand Palace and the Wat Phra Kaew temple inside it are two must-see attractions. Your guidebook can also point you to many other wonderful temples, some that exist in almost complete seclusion from crowds of tourists.
When the sun starts to sink in the sky, time to turn your Bangkok car hire to the areas of Silom and Sukumvit to find plenty of great restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Time to shake the rust off your best dance moves and show the world what your mum gave ya!
Bangkok is a busy place, and if you’re searching for a little peace and quiet, it might be time to hit your blinker and make a weekend escape. Samut Sakhon is just 45km away, where you can explore beautiful, but much less crowded temples, like Wat Chong Lom and Luang Pho To.
They say that two’s company, but three will never be a crowd if your third travel buddy is Wotif. We are your hook-up for big savings on Bangkok car rentals and Bangkok holiday packages.
What to do with all the money you save? Yep, bring on the second helping of pad thai.
