Bangkok Hotels

Planning a Bangkok getaway? Let Skyscanner find you great hotels in Bangkok.

The exotic capital of Thailand is one of the most energetic cities in the world. The shimmering spires of the vast Golden Palace pierce the modern skyline in Rattanakosin, the Old part of the city. Silom’s reserved financial district comes to life at night as neon lit clubs throng with a frenzy of activity while Sukhumvit is the hangout the expat in Asia, were modern hotels, shops and restaurants line the streets.

Hotels in Bangkok cater for a wide range of travellers from the backpacker filled Khao San Road, the stunning five star Peninsula Hotel in Thonburi, to the legendary Oriental Hotel in Silom. At just over 130 years old, the Oriental is the oldest hotel in Bangkok. The Shanghai Mansion in Chinatown is one of the city’s most beautiful boutique hotels with the feel of a 1920’s movie, but if you’re searching for serenity, the Antantara Bangkok Riverside Resort and Spa, on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, boasts lush tropical gardens and views across the water. Even if you've spent more than you budgeted on your flights to Bangkok, rest assured, there are thousands of hotels to choose from in Bangkok and with such low prices; luxury can be found on most budgets.

Visit bustling Chinatown in Yaowarat for fantastic food, temples and shrines or leafy, European style Dusit with its palaces, gardens and sweeping boulevards. Thonburi houses the National Museum and many a traditional vibrant floating market. These really are a must see and the place for a canal tour taking in the sights of Wat Pho and Wat Arun temples. Take cookery classes, cycle the spice Road, enjoy a cheap but blissful massage, grab a tuk tuk to take you around the city, trying as many of the 50,000 eating places as you can!

Asian mysticism and modernity meet in a clash of colour and a riot of noise in this unforgettable city. Where misty riverbanks conceal ancient temples and saffron robed monks, lantern lit streets illuminate rows of laundry hung up to dry and where the street food is probably the best dining experience in the world!

Did you know..?

In the Guinnes Book of Records for having the longest name in the world, Bangkok is actually short for ‘Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Yuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit’ – thank goodness it’s a rarely used ceremonial name!

Remember having water fights as a kid? Now you can do it as a grown up in April in Bangkok when the city hosts a massive open-air street water fight; the Songkran Festival.

Bangkok’s Golden Buddha weighs in at 5.5 tonnes and is the largest and most expensive gold Buddha in the world.
