A HOLIDAY BREAK

FROM THURSDAY, 3 JANUARY TO SUNDAY, 12 JANUARY 2017

BANGKOK, THAILAND

Bangkok, Thailand’s capital, is a large city encompassing 1,568.7 square kilometres (605.7 sq mi) in the Chao Phraya River delta. Over 8 million people live in it, about 12.6% of the country’s population. However, over 14 million live within the surrounding Bangkok Metropolitan Region. The boat-filled Chao Phraya River feeds its network of canals, flowing past the Rattanakosin royal district, home to the opulent Grand Palace and its sacred Wat Phra Kaew Temple. Nearby on the opposite shore, Wat Arun Temple with its steep steps and Khmer-style spire is another landmark of the city. This will be our second trip to Bangkok, and we look forward to wandering around this ancient city and sampling its vibrant street life at our own pace.
