What are the places you shouldn’t miss? What you must eat etc.
We hope these below reasons should be great starting points. The bustling city is a combination of weird and wonderful sights, sounds and smells.
And oh! Bangkok never sleeps – so you know you are in the right place after all!
Awe inspiring Palaces and temples
Thailand is full of ancient temples and monasteries but there is one that should NOT miss. The Grand Palace!
This dazzling and spectacular Palace – the city most famous landmark was built in 1782 (it was the home of the king for 150 years). It’s beautiful architecture and intricate designs will leave you in awe. It is easily the spiritual heart of Thai Kingdom.
Within the palace complex is the Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha), which houses the greatly revered Emerald Buddha that dates back to the 14th century.
It has amazing food
Thai food is renowned worldwide – remember the red and green curry? But if you are looking for more than just Phad Thai and Massaman, you cannot miss the bustling Chinatown market – not just for the lip-smacking food, but for the old town vibe that makes you forget everything else you have come to Bangkok for! Look for the exotic birds nest soup to the ostentatious Peking duck and treat your taste buds with a variety of flavours.
Dinner cruise to make your trip memorable
How do feel about dining on board a cruise boat over the lovely Chao Phraya River at sunset? Sounds amazing, right? This is an experience you are not likely to forget. Float down the river and watch the majestic Bangkok skyline unfold as you dig into your mouthwatering Thai food.
Bangkok’s nightlife is unmissable
Bangkok has a vibrant night life – or clubbing if you prefer to call it so. Head to the Royal City Avenue (RCA) the epicentre of Bangkok’s clubbing scene and an officially designated nightlife zone so you can be assured of a party seven nights a week. Enjoy international DJs, live concerts and soundtracks by popular local artists all in one night. This is where the term “dance your night away” reveals its true meaning.
Shop like there is no tomorrow
No matter where you come from, shopping in Bangkok is a whole different experience! No one leaves Bangkok without visiting its shopping malls. Head to Siam Paragon, the city’s high end shopper’s paradise, a hugely popular shopping mall that houses many different shops for high-end fashion designers, Southeast Asia’s largest aquarium, a huge multiplex cinema and enough restaurants to feed you for a life time can all be found right here.
