If cosmopolitan is your style, then lively Bangkok is your mantra. Known for its tailor-made weddings, the capital city of Thailand offers a thrilling nightlife, heart-warming hospitality, ethnic-meets-modern culture, themed eateries, unique décor & food options, and countless hotels, villas, rooftop and riverside venues to choose from to host a destination wedding in Bangkok.
While the “City of Angels” may not have tropical beaches and mountain views of its counterparts, anyone who has visited Bangkok will attest to its eccentricity. Frequent and short flights from India (app. 4 hrs) to Suvarnabhumi International Airport ensure its amenability.
Wedding venues in Bangkok are plentiful – from traditional Thai-inspired hotels to European-influenced ones, from gorgeous rooftop venues overlooking the bustling streets to spiritual temple spaces and quirky hostels, Bangkok is a brilliant cornucopia of the senses, with plenty to see and do on the days leading up to and after the big day. There is a sense of mischief in the air and for the locals, every day is injected with a sense of sà•nùk (fun), and playfulness. The official language spoken in BangKok is Thai with Thai Baht being the currency used as a mode of exchange.
Event management companies in Bangkok offer great all-inclusive deals for destination weddings. From the golden pagodas of the Grand Palace and Wat Arun, the bustling Chinatown to the picturesque riverside of the Chao Phraya River, the floating market and the night bazaars, the adventure & theme parks to the morbid museums and luxe malls, there is much to do in this exciting city. A heaven for foodies, a paradise for shopaholics, and a delight for the culture enthusiast, markets in Bangkok like the Chatuchak, the Pak Klong, the Klongsan, the Pratunam, and the streets of Khao San are not be missed. Wedding planners in Bangkok work round the clock to ensure your event goes by smoothly. And they affirm that no trip to Bangkok would be complete without the notorious Thai foot massage, or the decadent shows at Pat Pong Street.
Sampling local Thai food should be a must on your list! Thrill your taste buds with juicy pieces of grilled pork on a stick or a fiery bowl of Tom Yum soup, swig the local beers, have the spicy Som Tum salad, and indulge in the best Pad Thai noodles in town. Make sure you include the local dishes and flavours in your event to keep it as innate as possible.
Bangkok has the most formal system of metered taxis, and a network of tuk-tuks, above ground (BTS) and underground light train (MRT) systems, motorcycle taxis, and buses moving around the city. Bangkok is busy year-round, but the best time to visit is the holiday season from November to January. Host a wedding reception in Bangkok on the cruise, or plan a discreet ceremony at one of the banquet halls in Bangkok. There are beautiful garden and rooftop venues too where one can host corporate events in Bangkok at.
