Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental in Bangkok, Thailand your home away from home

The exotic tropical city of Bangkok is the capital of Thailand. Known for its crowded streets, steamy heat, street markets and vibrant nightlife it is a wonderful place for tourists to experience. Exotic temples, ramshackle buildings and modern shopping malls line the streets and long-tail boats and sampans crowd the Chao Phraya River which runs through the city. Staying in a holiday rental in Bangkok is a great way to enjoy the city whilst providing a quiet refuge after a day exploring the city sights.

Things to Do in Bangkok

Bangkok offers a host of things to do around your holiday rental. The city is best explored on guided tours which take in the many Buddhas, temples, palaces and monuments. Take a boat trip in a long-tail boat along the river, see the local houses which line the banks and visit the floating market where traders gather in boats to sell their fruit, vegetables and other goods. Shopping is an essential part of any holiday in Bangkok, from the smart malls to the atmospheric night markets. Thailand is also well known for its massage parlours and spa therapies. Most hotels offer a range of treatments and Thai massages to non-residents in their day spas. Whatever your tastes, Bangkok has a lively nightlife from clubbing to go-go bars and gentlemen’s clubs.

Places to Visit in Bangkok

The main sights to head for from your Bangkok holiday rental are the Temple of the Reclining Buddha and the Grand Palace. Wat Arun is a distinctive landmark and Wat Pho is an interesting place to visit. The Royal Barge Museum has some splendidly ornate golden boats and Jim Thompson’s House and Museum offers a different aspect on the city. Silom Road is the main trading district and many shop houses can be seen here. Famous for the sale of gems and jewellery by day, after dark it has a vibrant nightlife. Sukhumvit Road is the main commercial centre and has many tailor shops where bespoke suits and dresses can be made in just 48 hours. The area also hosts a buzzing night market for fake designer goods. For shopping, the Chatuchak Outdoor Market is one of the largest in Asia and is a fascinating place to pick up some bargains. Siam Square is the home of Paragon, Bangkok’s largest shopping mall. Chinatown is also worth visiting to eat or to shop and can be easily reached by river taxi from your Bangkok holiday rental.  

Weather in Bangkok

Bangkok is a tropical country with a hot climate all year round. The best time to visit is between November and March which is the dry season. During the rainy season humidity is high and showers are short but heavy, sometimes flooding the city streets. Expect temperatures to range from 31°C (88°F) in November to 35°C (95°F) in April.

Cet appartement est très bien pour un séjour professionnel mais peu adapté si vous venez pour du tourisme (loin du centre). Je recommande !

The only problem is far from MRT (or Sky train) station. Anyway, this place is very good for family mainly because there is a gym and swimming pool. I will go back again.
