- The mix of high culture, entertainment and incredible shopping make Bangkok one of the most exciting cities in the world. A visit to Bangkok would not be complete without a visit to Wat Pho, the temple of the reclining Buddha. This temple is the first grade royal monastery, and was regarded as the most important of its type during the reign of King Rama I and the Chakri Dynasty. The Reclining Buddha can be found in the assembly hall.
- Food is such an experience in Bangkok. Whether you are dining at one of the best restaurants at the top of a skyscraper, or are eating steaming hot noodles from a cart at the side of the road, the sweet, spicy, sour and salty flavours famous in Thai food will have you coming back for more. Why not book a cookery course with one of Qatar Airways Holidays culinary packages, and learn the secret to Thai cooking you can try back at home?.
