The sacred wonders of Thailand - Thailand is one of those dream destinations, perfect and ideal for your holidays! If you are fortunate to be able to reach this country will certainly not miss a fabulous trip to Bangkok as well as being the capital, is also the largest city of Thailand. Dynamic, economically in the developing world, loved by tourists from all over the world, this city is located along the Chao Phraya River is c onosciuta also under the name Krungthep - City of Angels.
The amplitude of the city means that every tourist has a wide choice of things to see and visit. You can start with the Royal Palace, the most famous tourist attraction, as well as the seat of Parliament: consists of a set of wat - ie temples - decorated according to local custom. Nearby you can visit the Palace Chitralda, home of the royal family, and the gardens of Amphorn to relax or, if you've come to the right time, attend festivals. A fundamental step in this area is definitely the Temple of the Emerald Buddha: Considered the sacred monument par excellence, hosts inside a statue of Buddha carved from a single block of jade of the fifteenth century. Other shrines dedicated to Buddha are the Wat Pho - the oldest monastery where you can admire the Reclining Buddha, or dormant, covered with gold and mother of pearl, now home to a renowned center of massage and medicine - and Wat Trai Mit, with the Golden Buddha.

I enjoyed Laos alot2005-03-04 10:48:03 by wat2dowat2do
I went in 2001. Bought a "package" from a Bangkok travel agent that included visa for crossing Thai Laos border up at Chang Rai, a boat trip down the Mekong for a few days, overnight accomodation at a french owned riverbank hotel, meals and dropped us off at Luang Prabang. The travel agent also included air tickets from Luang Prabang back to BKK. Not really an organised package tour, so to speak... wonderful experience, but I would warn against hiking or travelling in the back country or in a small group. Read warnings about land crossings. Stick with an organised tour in a mainstream area.
If you're in the region anyways, tack on a few days in Siam Reap in Cambodia. You can fly in and out of BKK. It was as memorable as Laos for different reasons. (architechure vs the people)
