Bangkok is one of the largest cities in the world, and is the capital of Thailand. With its monasteries, shopping malls, bars and river canals, Bangkok offers a unique experience for travelers and visitors. Visit the Grand Palace, which is the official residence of the Thai royal family. Monasteries, such as Wat Arun, provide a sense of calm amidst all the hustle and bustle of the city. Visit the Bangkok National Museum, which displays Thai, Vietnamese and other Asian artifacts. As the night falls, head towards Patpong or Khaosan Road, where most of the bars and clubs are located.
Arriving to the city centre
Hanoi to Bangkok flights may land at Don Mueang International Airport or the larger Suvarnabhumi Airport. Don Mueang International Airport is 23 kilometers from the city center, also known as Siam. The easiest way to get to Siam is by taking Bus number 29. Depending on traffic, the journey may last between 30 minutes to 1 hour. If your flight lands at Suvarnabhumi International Airport, take the Airport Link City Line and get off at Phaya Thai. Alternatively, take BTS bus 54, and walk to the Siam area after leaving the bus. There are also taxis and other modes of transportation available from both the airports to Bangkok city center.
