The Peninsula Bangkok Our Bangkok

There really is no other city like Bangkok. It strikes the perfect balance of thriving and sleepy, prim and gritty, reserved and flashy, and with its underlying Buddhist nature, these distinctions are simply accepted by all. The City of Angels offers travellers a myriad of ways to enjoy its unique sights, whether your interests are cultural, social or purely recreational.

    This stunning white temple a welcome contrast to the colourful splendour of the nearby Grand Palace. It is one of the few Old City temples where worshippers outnumber tourists, and is a great place for visitors to submerge themselves in Thai beliefs and spirituality. Wat Mahathat also serves as the headquarters of the Mahanikai school of Buddhism – serving as the living quarter for over 200 monks – and is home to a well-known centre of Buddhist meditation which offers daily classes.

    By Mr. Marco Schuchter - Assistant Food and Beverage Manager

    Bangkok's market scene is a mix of the sophisticated and surprising, offering a selection as diverse as the city itself. Taling Chan Floating Market sells orchard produce such as fruit and vegetables, fish, plants and trinkets, and a boat trip along the busy canal will reveal a charming host of small gardens and villages. It is open on weekends only from about 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. There is a live traditional Thai music performance from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.
