Things to Do in Bangkok

Your endeavours in Bangkok will be the perfect blend of all things culture and culinary. Begin your exploration of the city with a stop at the Grand Palace, which used to be a royal residence and now operates as a museum. Journey on, and you may find yourself in front of Wat Phra Kaew Temple, where golden-pointed spires pierce the clouds. Still other sacred and historically significant sites in Bangkok include Wat Arun and Wat Saket. Admire the intricate artwork and stained glass in the Assumption Cathedral and imagine yourself living on the luxurious grounds of the Suan Pakkad Palace. Thailand lets your imagination run wild.

Visiting bedazzling Bangkok attractions is bound to make you hungry, and the city is happy to feed you. Those carts you see on the streetside offer some of the most delectable bites in Thailand, from mango sticky rice to stir-fried chicken with a fried egg on top. For a taste of some of the world’s best seafood, boogie over to Chinatown and belly up to a table on Yaowarat Road. While your stomach will be full after your culinary tours, you may still have an appetite for more art and culture. Just hop into a tuk tuk and point your driver to the Bangkok National Museum or the Giant Swing. Then, a shopping spree at CentralWorld or Terminal 21 followed by a night on the town is the perfect way to end the day.
