Dive, Party and Explore

(Thai New Year) The Songkran Festival is also known as the water festival. It celebrates water as a ritual of washing away negativity from the year before. People celebrating Songkran take part in a traditional pouring of water that symbolizes washing away back luck and sins from a person’s life. Songkran is not always celebrated in the same traditional manner. Cities like Bangkok, Pattaya and Phuket host street parties and water fights every year as part of the celebration.

Bangkok Shopping Adventure

3 Days and 2 Nights

Itinerary: Day 1 arrival and check into our hotel. Day 2 shop till you drop all day exploration and shopping adventure. Day 3 airport travel day

An adventure is the only way I would describe shopping in Bangkok. If you’re looking for really cool stuff Bangkok is the place to shop. From traditional Thai stuff to custom-made clothes and electronics there is definitely something for everybody in Bangkok. It is also the best place to get the best prices as long as you know how to negotiate. There are also some amazing spots to check out in Bangkok such as The Famous Maeklong Railway Market and Chatuchak Market.
