Book flights from Edinburgh to Bangkok with Qatar Airways
Arriving in Bangkok
Book a flight to Bangkok with Qatar Airways and you’ll arrive at one of the world’s most exciting and popular destinations.
Not only a beloved destination by the adventurous travellers and ‘backpackers,’ but it’s also a wonderful destination for the more discerning, luxury travellers.
Whether you’re looking for ancient temples, bustling markets, lively nightlife or absolute luxury, you’ll find it in Bangkok.
Many of the city’s best known sights can be found in the historic centre within the Rattanakosin district.
The most spectacular attraction is the Grand Palace, which was once home to the King of Thailand and today offers visitors a rich mixture of history and architectural splendour.
Within the palace grounds you’ll also discover Thailand’s holiest temple, Wat Phra Kaew. Other highlights in Rattanakosin include the large reclining Buddha statue at Wat Pho and the Thai-European fusion of Wat Ratchabophit.
Other popular districts worth exploring during your trip to Bangkok include Siam Square for sheer high-end luxury shopping, and Silom for its bustling entertainment venues.
For a very different perspective on the city and a more relaxing way to see the sights, go for a cruise down the Phraya River.
