Bangkok Attractions - Places And Activities You Musn't Miss


Planing on going to Bangkok for your holidays? Here are 10 must see and must do Bangkok attractions;
1. Get on a river taxi and see the beauty of Chao Praya River. 

One of the most interesting view of Bangkok. If you are adventurous, just jump on one at any of its terminals. Make sure to be fast enough as the water taxis hardly fully stop. Alternatively, book a tour from one of the hotels by the river such as The Royal Orchid Sheraton, Shangri la or The Peninsula.

2. Meet and greet with the locals and tourists at the Weekend market, Chatuchak/Jatujak 

It can get very hot in here but is an excellent place, nonetheless, to see the wares of Thailand. You will definitely find a great buy along the way. There's just about anything available here in Chatuchak market. Whatever your taste or interests.

3.See the wonders of the Grand Palace 

Take a close look at the glorious work of art in the middle of Bangkok.

4.Get a Thai massage

Get full Thai massage, or foot massage, or both! If you don't get a Thai massage in Thailand then you haven't been to Thailand. Experience the wonderful way of relaxing and de-stressing without breaking your bank.

5.Have A Relaxing Spa At The Banyan

A relaxing spa retreat right in the middle of the city. You can choose from a 1 hour facial treatment or if you have time to spare, have a 7 hour Banyan package and spoil yourself mad.

6.Visit the Floating Market

Get to floating market early in the morning and you'll get a very good cultural experience where the river-folks are trading mindless of the tourists.

7. Night markets wonders

Affordable, interesting goods are available all over Bangkok's night markets. Be sure to ask questions and negotiate, you will have great experience shopping. Also if you go very early, just when the shops are opening, you might even get the prices really low.

8.Shop Till You Drop 

Shopping is the Thailand's national past time and wherever you are in Bangkok, you will never run out of shops to explore. You can find practically everything in this City Of Angels and at very reasonable prices to boot. For reasonable priced clothes, go to Pratunum Market; for little trinkets, go to Yaowarat in Chinatown; for bargain software, go to Panthip plaza, and for designer clothes, try Central Plaza or The Emporium Shopping Center.

9.Try Thai food
 
Thai food is just heavenly! Try some or all of them, everyday!

10.See An Elephant Show 

Visit the famous show often used as a signature for a Thailand visit. They are cute, they are smart and they will make your day even more adventurous. Take lots of pictures and have fun experiencing Thailand's little chaps! They are real treats!
