Things To Do In Bangkok

Bangkok is same but yet different. Street life of Bangkok is amazing, as it throws classic and delicacies throughout the year. In Bangkok any experience or adventure id worth doing as the place itself is so charming. Explore it with our International Tour Packages. 
The Chao Phrayaalso known as the River of Kings, is the major river in Thailand. It is formed by four major tributaries, which flows through Bangkok and then into the Gulf of Thailand.
Thai people have been using their boats to travel on the waterways throughout the country for hundreds of years, long before modern roads existed.
In the past, people of Bangkok usually settled by the Chao Phraya River and gradually spread into the core of the country. In the past it was, and still is, a very important waterway for the people of central Thailand. Several people call the banks of the Chao Phraya River home. Many people use the river to get to and from work almost every day. For others, it is a way of life and, ultimately, their main source of income.
Taking a cruise along the legendary Chao Phraya River is the most pleasant way to explore the city once known as ""Venice of the East"". The majestic charm of the river adds perspective to exploration of the city's premier attractions. By taking a boat along the waterways, tourists will still be able to catch a few glimpses of the old Thai way of life. It is one of the best ways to experience the local culture, history, and of course, a great way to spend a day in Thailand.
One unique experience at the Chao Phraya River is boarding the dinner cruise on the river. The dinner features a grand buffet including Thai cuisine and other international cuisine. There is live band playing some awesome jive and is a complete entertaining night.

Most people visiting Thailand have a to-do list of things that they want to experience, and Thai massage is always very close to the top of that list. With such a wide range of massage options available to visitors, it can be difficult to find exactly what they are looking for. 
The Thai massage focuses on pressure points, unlike Western massage styles. The treatment often commences with the feet and gradually moves upwards towards the head. Rhythmic compressions and man oeuvres are techniques employed in order to relax and realign energies in the body. In accordance with the Ayurvedic principles of balancing one's energy, varying amounts of pressure are applied to energy lines along the body. Before starting you are given a tick sheet where you can ask the massage therapist to focus on certain areas of your body, highlight any health issues you might have and indicate the amount of pressure you would like.
Massage shops are as abundant as 7-Elevens, so you can’t really walk down a street in Bangkok without coming across one. Prices will be advertised outside Most massage shops and they will speak basic English.

Happy Travellers

A well organized and planned Thailand trip
A well organized and planned Thailand trip

A well organized and planned Thailand trip

I am very delighted to share my experience with flamingo transworld. It was a great pleasure and satisfying experience for us to travel to Thailand in association with Flamingo.


Initially I was little worried about my trip as it was my first international trip, but assistance and all the necessary information provided by Flamingo made my journey very lucid. We have booked a 7N/8D tour which includes 3N in Phuket, 2N in Krabi and 2N in Bangkok. 


I literally didn't face any trouble during my trip. We have not faced any problem of pick up and drop and in between sightseeing during our entire trip. From booking to end of the tour, they were very helpful and supportive. All the transfers, airport pick up and drop were always on time.  Excellent communication of staff especially Amitbhai and Helly made our tour much easy. They have provided a complete detailed itinerary with details of contact person, information about the city where we are travelling, list of nearby Indian restaurant and list of other details such as shopping place, additional sightseen places etc. were really helpful and appreciable.

Overall it was a very well organized and satisfying trip.

We had very good Experience with Flamingo
We had very good Experience with Flamingo

We had very good Experience with Flamingo

Hope you all are doing great & making people holidays most memorable ones.


At the onset there is dealy from my side to provide feedback & got busy with work , nevertheless its Amit's regular follow-ups, which I appreciate, made me write , so late in the night ( on the lighter side ) as well.

We had great experience & I must say though we went for the first time from Flamingo, we had very good experience & had loads of fun. I would like to give feedback step by step:

  • Pre. vacation counseling: Amit did it very well. Later Rishikesh also made the itinerary as per my requirements. What can be done better : give more options for activities, apart from the regular ones.
  • Package cost: Should be made more attractive & break-ups for activities/hotel etc., should be given, so that we have fair knowledge where we are incurring the cost
  • Accounts: Very meticulous & appropriate
  • Buddha App: Very attractive, easy to use, chat option is awesome. Amit always replied either its 6am in the morning or 12 midnight, He was always concerned that are we ok, had dinner, comfortable etc. Lot of info is provided for local attarctions.
  • ITC : Local tour operator at Thailand: Very timid, punctual & professional. No complaints. Received well at airports/ hotel transfers, daily activities
  • RAMADA BANGKOK : Had bad experience with staff. Very Rude & insensitive
  • Amari phuket is one of the best properties in Phuket. Staff was very respectful & very humble. You should suggest this not only for stay but for Indian food as well ( Rim Talay is the restaurant name)

SPECIAL MENTION: Amit is a hard working & sincere guy. I had good experience with him. Rishikesh was very helpful in given all the tips which were really helpful during the stay. Both were always available & ready to help


We really had amazing time at Phuket, four island tour, Phi Phi island, Adventure day ( with river rafting & Elephant ride) & great shopping experience at Indra Square. My wife & kid also had real fun time. I am sharing few pictures as well.

Thank you so much & would like to book through Flamingo again next year. Hope you give better deal this time,

I am very happy to share my feedback of Thailand trip i did with my family last week in may. It was really a wonderful journey. Right from our booking with Flamingo tours till the end. Flamingo people especially Amit, hiral and of course Rahul helped and supported us very nicely.

We were reluctant for this trip especially pattaya as we heard about it differently and as i was going with family but  flamingo people guided us positively. It was indeed a mind blowing experience. 

The entire tour arrangement was customized so perfectly that we felt it comfortable as well as worthy. Cruise dinner was highlight if all and we truely enjoyed it. Mr. Amit helped with proper indian restaurants guide so that we didnt find much problm there. In totality the experience was fantastic and memorable. My parents also had remarkable experience as it was their first overseas tour. Shopping, sight seeing and hospitality was commendable.

The entire credit goes to Flamingo tours and its concerned staff members. 

Thank you very much and we recommend others also to take benefits of your travel company to be worth of time and money spend.
