Things to do in Bangkok
As Thailand’s capital, Bangkok is the country’s centre for art, culture, finance, and politics. It became a top tourist destination for its architecture, art, food, and warm hospitality. You can’t help being charmed by the city’s mix of old world traditions and modern trends.
Start your trip with Bangkok’s popular destinations. Ride the Skytrain to the historic Grand Palace. Its sophisticated design alone will make your jaw drop. Here, you’ll also find Thailand’s most important Buddhist temple – the Wat Phra Kaew and its Emerald Buddha.
Wat Pho is another temple nearby where you’ll see the massive Reclining Buddha. When you’re done taking pictures, get a foot massage at the temple’s pavilion before your next stop.
Along with temples, Bangkok is also a treat for shoppers. You’ll even find it easy because most locals speak English in tourist areas. Just make sure you have plenty of Baht in your wallet.
Want a break from malls? Try Bangkok’s floating markets like Damnoen Saduak and Amphawa. Or if you’re good at haggling (respectfully of course), test your skills at Chatuchak Weekend Market. Don’t forget to treat yourself to delicious Bangkok street food too at Victory Monument, Yaowarat, Ratchawat Market and more!
For modern shopping centres, Bangkok won’t disappoint. Experience what the locals call a “lifestyle mall” at Terminal 21 to shop in world-famous cities like Tokyo, Istanbul, and San Francisco all in one mall. Or head on over to central Bangkok and shop till you drop at the massive CentralWorld Bangkok or any of the shopping centres around Siam Square in downtown Bangkok.
Are you a night owl? Ride a boat to Asiatique and browse boutiques, eat great food, and enjoy entertainment from 5PM-12MN. But whether you’re out all day or night, Bangkok is foodie heaven with plenty of budget-friendly restaurants open 24/7 and the incredible Thai street food in Chinatown (Yaowarat), Charoen Krung Road and Bangrak, Petchaburi Soi 5 and many more!
