Bangkok, Thailand

“Sprawling, frenetic, and sultry”—that’s how one Travel + Leisure writer describes Bangkok, a city of seeming contradictions. A stroll through the hot, tropical city might offer up Buddhist monasteries tucked between towering skyscrapers, late-night bars, and floating markets. This mesh of the ancient and ultramodern helped push Bangkok to the top of Travel + Leisure‘s “World’s Best Cities” list for four consecutive years from 2010 to 2013.

This vacation will give you plenty of free time to explore the city’s temples and statues, including the Emerald Buddha, which you can learn about during the optional Grand Palace tour ($39/person). It was carved from a single block of jade in the 14th century and remains one of Thailand’s most sacred sites. Despite Bangkok’s dedication to tradition, it moves at a lightening-fast speed. The youthful Khaosan Road district, for example, is packed with bars, massage parlors, market stalls, and tattoo shops that are popular among locals and backpackers alike. Another bustling area is the Siam district, home to the city’s best shopping. On nearly every corner, you’ll find a vast array of street food, ranging from banh mi sandwiches to barbecued duck tongue.

  • Go clubbing on Royal City Avenue, a nightlife zone where you’ll find international DJs and live concerts.
  • Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall displays works from local artists. The interior of the Italian Renaissance–style building is painted with frescoes that portray the Chakri Dynasty, the current ruling house of Thailand.
  • Upscale accommodations: Both hotels offer spacious, contemporary rooms, as well as onsite dining and convenient downtown locations.
  • Ratchada Grand Theatre: Its nightly Siam Niramit show recounts 700 years of history with elaborate sets, special effects, and more than 100 performers—including elephants ($59/person).
  • Optional tours: Learn about the history of Ayutthaya, Thailand’s former capital, while exploring the region on a day-long tour ($69/person), or take in an authentic Thai dinner and cabaret show ($59/person).
