    Bangkok – a furious assault on the senses

    The sprawling Thai capital is deservedly one of the world's most popular travel destinations. Initially overwhelming in scope, it's a metropolis of dramatic contrasts, where ramshackle markets jostle for your custom alongside sleek mega-malls, and where gilded Buddhist temples glisten in the shadow of soaring, glass-and-steel skyscrapers. It's a gourmand's paradise, with street stalls and restaurants at every turn serving up rich curries, zingy papaya salads, succulent meat skewers and countless other intensely flavoursome Thai staples. Bangkok holiday rentals range from cosy condos to luxurious penthouses, so you'll find something that suits all your needs.

    Mesmerising markets and neon-clad nightspots

    Bangkok is a shopper's paradise, with the city's cavernous, air-conditioned malls offering blissful respite from the often-searing heat. But, if you're looking for something beyond the usual big international brands, visit the vast Chatuchak Weekend Market to haggle over edgy street fashion, quirky antiques, handsome homeware and colourful trinkets. Or, for a quintessential Bangkok experience, head to the iconic floating markets to see vintage wooding trading boats piled high with tropical fruit, fresh seafood and fragrant flowers. Once you've stowed your purchases in the safety of your Bangkok holiday rental, it's time to experience the city's legendary nightlife. Take your pick from laid-back streetside bars or pulsing clubs where you can dance ‘til the early hours.

    Tranquil temples and seductive street scenes

    You'll find a diverse array of attractions within easy reach of your Bangkok holiday rental. Top of the agenda for many first-timers is the Grand Palace. This ornate, ostentatious complex has served as official residence to the royal family since 1782, and you can spend hours exploring its elegant courtyards and tranquil temples. Nearby, Wat Po is home to the world's largest reclining Buddha image, which takes the form of an awe-inspiring, gold-leaf covered, 45 metre-long statue. And no visit to Bangkok is complete without a wander down Khao San Road, the chaotic epicentre of South-East Asia's vibrant backpacking scene. Here you'll find beach bums and intrepid explorers from every corner of the globe, trading travel tales over ice-cold beers in bustling bars.

    Sultry days in Bangkok

    Based on year-round average temperatures, the World Meteorological Society has declared Bangkok the hottest city on earth. December to February are the most pleasant, and thus most popular months to visit, with very little rain and lower humidity. March to May are generally the hottest months, but only by a couple of degrees. If your travel plans are flexible, September and October are perhaps best avoided, as these are usually the wettest months. Rain is a fairly common occurrence at other times of year, but it generally falls in short, refreshing bursts, so is unlikely to interfere with your plans.

    Animal encounters in Bangkok

    Bangkok isn't exactly synonymous with unspoilt nature, but expansive Lumpini Park is a cherished urban oasis. Sprawling out over 140 lush acres, its tree-shaded paths are the ideal spot for an early-morning jog, and it's a prime location for spotting giant monitor lizards, close relatives of the legendary Komodo dragon. For guaranteed animal encounters, head to Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World, an astonishing aquarium where you can get up close and personal with playful penguins, giant spider crabs, Pacific octopuses and all manner of other captivating creatures.
