Beyond Bangkok

Destinations around Bangkok

The world around Bangkok is as fascinating as the capital itself. But also quite different. In under an hour or two you can explore many places for a delightful day-trip to escape from the city buzz, or stay overnight to get a true taste of a different kind of life. The most popular destination outside Bangkok is probably Pattaya, which is slowly shedding its sleazy image and reinventing itself as a family-oriented destination. The night-time frolics, however, remains. On the opposite end of the spectrum is the tranquillity and peace of Kanchanaburi and its claim to fame; the movie 'Bridge over the River Kwai'. Whatever your taste, it's all worth exploring.
