Things To Do In & Around Bangkok
It would probably be easier to tell you the things that you couldn’t do in and around Bangkok, as there is something for everyone in this city. No matter your age or what you are looking for, this Thai destination will ensure that you have plenty to keep you occupied and entertained.
Enjoy a boat trip
Public transport can be inconsistent in Bangkok. The Sky train is well worth using but the roads can become jammed at any time of day or night, so if you are looking to get around in great style and with no fuss, take a boat. This is an ideal way to enjoy Bangkok, providing you with easy access around the city while providing you with stunning views of old and new Bangkok.
Take a trip to the Bangkok National Museum
If you are keen to get a flavour of what Bangkok has to offer and you want to learn more about the history of Asian, you will find that the National Museum is a tremendous location. The museum depicts the history of Thailand in chronological fashion, so it is easy to follow and understand.
Visit the Grand Palace and Wat Po
These are “must-see” destinations for tourists, symbolising Thai culture and architecture for many people. The Grand Palace hosts the Emerald Buddha, which many people believe to be the soul of Thailand. This is a great place to relax and soak in the majesty of the Temples.
Visit the weekend market
If you are looking to buy presents for people back home, head to the weekend market, or the Chatuchak market as it is more formally known as. There is everything you could ever want in here and it is a place that tourists and locals use alike in equal measure. Everything you could possibly want to buy is found here and there are also plenty of restaurants, animal shops and tattoo shops to enjoy.
See Khao San Road
Bangkok is well known as an area where backpackers descend upon and the Khao San Road is where these travellers congregate. It can be busy, noisy and chaotic, but sometimes that is the charm of what the area has to offer. If you want to socialise, meet other travellers and buy items at a cheap price, this is the place to be.
Get a Thai massage
The pace of Bangkok may leave you feeling breathless at times but there are ways in which you can relax and unwind. There is a traditional massage centre at Wat Po, and this is an ideal destination if you are looking to out the stress of the city behind you.
