The luxury of limousines, helicopters and private boats

Bangkok can be a very chaotic city with busy streets, colourful markets and loud traffic. And even though the bustling city vibe has its unique charm, things here can get very intense. A little bit of luxury makes life a lot more bearable. Helicopter and limousine tours and luxury taxi boats add a surprising and exclusive touch to your Bangkok visit.

Local companies provide a variety of services to help travellers avoid the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. The luxurious 5-star Peninsula Hotel offers a helicopter service from Bangkok airport – 15 minutes later you land on the roof of your hotel, without any of the traffic chaos. This service is exclusive for hotel guests, but the options listed below are available for anybody who is looking for fast and comfortable transportation in the lively Thai capital.

Bangkok with a twist

Surprise your travel partner by booking a limousine to pick you up at Bangkok‘s Suvarnabhumi International Airport. The limo offers plenty of luggage space and legroom, chilled water and fruit juice, and information about the city of Bangkok. You may book the limo ahead of time and, if you wish, request a tour guide who can tell you all about the city as you travel from the airport to your hotel. Another affordable luxury is a helicopter tour over the temples, parks and outskirts of the city. This 1-hour sightseeing flight is an unforgettable experience.

The tranquillity of water

Bangkok is also known as the 'Venice of the East'. The town is built around an imposing system of canals that flow into the Chao Praya River. A very pleasant way to experience Bangkok is by boat, for example a private long-tail speedboat. Explore the city at your own pace with a visit to the famous floating market Damnoen Saduak, various temples and other attractions along the water.

A fancy cruise boat

Travel through Bangkok in style with a luxury cruise on the Chao Praya River. There are various dinner cruises which treat you to delicious Thai cuisine and beautiful city views. Another surprising experience is an exclusive multi-day mini-cruise aboard the teak ‘Orient Express of the river’ Manohra Song boat. No mass tourism here; the boat offers only 4 cabins, each with a beautiful private bathroom. The outstanding restaurant offers gorgeous views. There are also cruises to Ayutthaya, the ancient capital of Siam.
