Bangkok, Thailand with a bonus stop in Hong Kong

October 25, 2020 to November 3, 2020

5 Nights in Bangkok, Thailand

Bangkok is the capital and largest city in Thailand. One of Asia’s most cosmopolitan cities, Bangkok features modern buildings with awe-inspiring architecture, magnificent temples and palaces, authentic canals, and busy markets on trips to Thailand.

Bangkok is located in Thailand’s central plains, along the Chao Praya River delta, which empties into the Gulf of Thailand, approximately 25 kms south. Chao Praya River meanders through Bangkok from north to south, and once played an important role to the city’s inhabitants.

The Thai capital since 1782, Bangkok was once a village situated on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River. Because of its ideal location near the mouth of the river, Bangkok served as a customs outpost on both sides of the river, and gradually expanded economically through international trade. Before the 19th century, life took place along the river. Bamboo huts were built as dwellings, and while bamboo rafts served as transportation, floating markets selling fruits and vegetables had business conducted on the river itself. Bangkok was considered the ‘Venice of the East’, with its various canals.

3 Nights in Hong Kong

For a country concentrated in such a small area, Hong Kong doesn’t lack for great attractions and varied activities. It is affectionately known as the “City of Life” and deservedly so. It is also known for its amazing skyline which gives Hong Kong the title the “world’s most vertical city” due to the more than 1220 skyscrapers which are all clustered closely together to be seen on a Hong Kong vacation.

The name Hong Kong means “Fragrant Harbour” and it is the geographical lay-out that makes it interesting, consisting of 2 distinct parts, the Mainland which breaks down into the central area of Kowloon and the outlying area of the New Territories and the other, Hong Kong Island. Both Kowloon and Hong Kong Island are urban centres and are separated by the scenic Victoria Harbour. Another 200 offshore islands also make up Hong Kong, the largest and best known being Lantau.
