Create your own adventure with this Escape to Bangkok—a vibrant city unlike any other.

The Destination
An explosion of color, scents, and sounds, Thailand's capital city reveals itself the way it sounds—with a bang. Rustic and regal, exotic and modern, Bangkok brims with sensory delights. From the gold-drenched Temple of the Reclining Buddha and the opulent Grand Palace to the spice-soaked flavors of the city's infamous floating markets (think food trucks in canoes), Bangkok offers an ever-rotating carousel of adventures minute by fast-paced minute. Hop in a tuk-tuk (rickshaws on motorbikes) and careen through shop-laden streets with the wind at your back, or sail above the crowds on the sophisticated Skytrain en route to a high-end club. History-rich and future-facing, Bangkok is as vibrant as its signature silks that waft in the hot afternoon sun.

See it all—and enjoy four-star luxury at some of the city's finest hotels—with this eight-day Escape from Gate 1 Travel.

The Digs
At the four-star Mandarin Hotel, guests enjoy opulent accommodations in the heart of metropolitan Bangkok. The 375 rooms feature en-suite bathrooms, contemporary décor, and complimentary Wi-Fi. Taste Thai specialities in the Krua Luang Restaurant, treat yourself at the Let's Relax day spa, and take a dip in the beautiful outdoor swimming pool.

Or, stay at the AETAS Lumpini, a 4.5-star hotel that boasts the comforts of a modern business hotel combined with the ancient art of Thai hospitality. The 203 guest rooms offer premium linens for a good night's sleep, as well as thrilling city views from the large windows. Peruse the fusion menu at Hourglass Restaurant, or visit the on-site lounge, One-80, to sip a drink as you admire the view of Lumpini Park.
