Your guide to Bangkok

All About Bangkok

Located along the Chao Phraya River in central Thailand, Bangkok is a vibrant capital city with magnificent temples, palaces adorned with golden accents, and a thriving hawker food scene, from peanut-topped pad thai to crab-based creations. There are multiple neighborhoods to explore in Thailand’s cultural and political hub — such as the bustling Chinatown, lined with brightly colored signage, signature street food booths, and outdoor shopping stalls. Along the city’s many canals you’ll find Bangkok’s famous floating markets selling staples like fresh seafood, local produce, and sweets.

Rattanakosin Island in the core of the city is home to the National Theatre, the Grand Palace with its towering golden spires, and the National Museum, where you can see traditional clothing, wood carvings, and musical instruments alongside a collection of fine art. As nighttime rolls around, Bangkok’s nocturnal scene is as varied as the city itself with clubs, karaoke bars, rooftop lounges, and live performances occurring nightly in Sukhumvit.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Bangkok

Bangkok’s tropical monsoon climate means generally warm temperatures and heavy seasonal rainfall. Monsoon season lasts from May to September, so you can count on big downpours during those months, making it a quieter time to visit. Late fall through early spring is considered the best time to enjoy Bangkok condo rentals, as the temperatures are still warm, but precipitation and humidity are at their lowest. This is also when many events and festivals occur in the city. The Golden Mount Temple Fair in November involves performances, live music, games, and rides. The Chinese New Year, which occurs in January or February, is one of the biggest celebrations in Bangkok, with a fireworks display, dragon parades, and acrobatic dances, among other performances.
