Things to do in Bangkok
When it comes to things to do during your Bangkok holidays, it’s hard to know where to start. But there are definitely a few things you need to cross of your list, especially if it’s your first visit. The Grand Palace is the city’s no. 1 attraction and its intricate design is genuinely awe-inspiring. Another top spiritual sight is Wat Pho which plays host to the famous Reclining Buddha statue. Explore Chinatown, a bustling neighbourhood that’s like a city within the city. Take a sight-seeing boat tour along Chao Phraya River. Learn about Bangkok’s rich historic and cultural heritage at one of the many museums. And, escape it all with a visit to Lumpini Park or a hike up to the Golden Mount Temples which affords incredible views of the city.
Dining Out
One of best things about holidays to Bangkok is the food – from casual street food to fine dining, this is a real foodie paradise. It’s really all about the street food here. Even the locals eat out most of the time which means that tasty streets from stalls dotted all over is delicious and affordable. You can find great street food in the markets and major thoroughfares like Khao San Road which is a bit more tourist-oriented but still good. Try authentic local favourites like Pad Thai and Som Tam. You should also check out Chinatown, another of the city’s top culinary hotspots. Just eating everything in sight in a real highlight of anyone's Bangkok holidays.
Nightlife
No holiday to Bangkok is complete without experiencing the nightlife. For the party scene head to Khao San Road where there’s tons of bars and clubs. For something more laidback, head to Soi Rambuttri and trendy Thonglor. If you’re looking for a club night, head to Royal City Avenue, one of the central clubbing districts in Bangkok. The nightlife scene in Bangkok has evolved in recent years beyond the club scene and the hedonistic red light districts. How about something a bit more sophisticated in a hip cocktail bar, or a swanky rooftop bar? No better way to take in the views. In short, there are plenty of options for enjoying the nightlife on your Bangkok holidays.
Shopping
Holidays to Bangkok are an amazing choice for shopaholics. You have to experience its amazing markets – both on land and on the water. Try Catuchak Market, a massive 27-acre space with some 8000 stalls selling everything you can imagine. Or one of the city’s beloved floating markets – one of the best known is Damnoen Saduak. And shop till you drop in Siam Paragon, a popular shopping mall packed with 250 stores from high end to bargain brands, the largest aquarium in Southeast Asia and places to eat. If you’re visiting in mid-August, enjoy the Amazing Grand Sale when prices drop with huge discounts on many purchases. Shop till you drop on your Bangkok holidays. Make sure you save some space in your suitcase!
