Thailand is on everybody’s bucket list, whether it’s for the culture, the food or just the warmer climate it’s on there. This deal gives you the chance to explore the capital and spend some time really appreciating the culture as well as celebrating New Year in this amazing country.
You will be staying in Sananwan Palace, which has received a TripAdvisor rating of 4.5/5 as well as being awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 2014. You will be staying here on a room-only basis, which gives you a great excuse to go out and discover some really great restaurants where you can sample the local delicacies.
Your hotel is located in Samut Prakan, which is about a 45 minute drive from Bangkok. For this reason, I would really recommend you hire a car on carrentals.co.uk because it makes your trip so much easier; and means that you can have more freedom than if you rely on public transport.
In Bangkok there are certain things that you have to do. I would really recommend heading to see as much as you can, keeping in mind that you’re not there for very long! I would go and see all of the Wat’s; Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Arun and Wat Pho. However, these do take up quite a lot of time, so you might want to pick one or two and just go and see them.
As for eating, I would definitely recommend heading to P’Aor and trying some Kuay Teow Tom Yum Goong Nam Khon. This is one of those restaurants that the locals love because it truly is brilliant Thai cooking, it’s unbeatable. The Tom Yum is their signature dish, possibly one of the best things I’ve ever eaten.
For New Year’s Eve I would definitely recommend heading into Bangkok. There are so many events going on and the display is really fantastic, that you can’t really not go. I would recommend either booking a table at a rooftop restaurant, such as the Vertigo and Moon Bar. This would definitely be a more expensive way for you to enjoy the festivities, however it would be 100% worth it! If you wanted to do something else, a bit cheaper, then I would recommend that you go on the Loy Nava River Cruise; seeing the fireworks from the river is really great.
