It may seem that planning a distant trip requires a lot of effort and logistics skills. Not at all! By using convenient connections from Kraków airport, you can easily reach the most popular and most fabulous destinations across the globe.
More and more tourists decide to discover the world on their own and are interested in destinations that differ from their everyday surroundings. Where do adventure-thirsty European travellers fly most frequently? To Asia! Especially Bangkok, one of the most colourful destinations of the continent.
An easy way to Bangkok
The capital of Thailand is one of the most popular and most developed cities in Asia. Kraków airport offers a connection to this marvellous place with only one stopover. Travellers going from Kraków to Bangkok land at one of the two airports in the agglomeration – Suvarnabhumi international airport, located only 30 km from the city centre. Its transportation system is well-developed an allows fast and convenient journey to your destination by taxi or public transport. The fastest way to reach the city is Airport Express,
an overhead railway that covers the distance in 15 minutes. Moving around the capital is not problematic (despite the massive traffic) because you are offered a lot of opportunities: taxis, subway, overhead railway, busses, fast scooter-taxis and tuk-tuks. The last means of transport, quite popular among tourists, is a three-wheeled vehicle that is more of a tourist attraction and a symbol of Bangkok, than a way of fast travel. However, if you decide to take a taxi, which is the most convenient way to move around the city, it is better to pay attention to the “taximeter” symbol. It guarantees that the fare will be calculated by a taximeter.
A paradise city
The city never ceases to astonish visitors – it is a vast metropolis where modern buildings neighbour temples and palaces of exquisite beauty and ornamental architecture. When the night falls, the city begins bustling with life, offering endless forms of entertainment. When in Bangkok, one must see the Grand Palace, a complex consisting of a number of historical buildings, including the Temple of Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaeo), one of Thailand’s most important Buddhist temples. One of the biggest and most important temples (with area exceeding 80000 m²!) is Wat Pho, the Temple of Reclining Buddha. Wat Pho temple is home to the monumental statue of reclining Buddha that is 15 metres tall and 46 metres long!
Those who want to experience the unique atmosphere of Bangkok should not miss Klong Lad Mayom, a floating market located in Thonburi district. Every Sunday, local producers and farmers visit it to sell fresh fish, fruit, vegetables, and spices. Tourists who wish to experience the local flavour will be delighted to visit Khao San Road: the so-called “backpacker mecca”, filled with everyday hustle and bustle and loud music. If you wish to taste delicious local street food, and find out why people call Bangkok a paradise, Khao San Road is a perfect choice at any time of day or night.
