How’s your 2018 coming along? Plans for any upcoming travels? I just got back from my trip to UAE and Africa and settling back in. I visited Thailand last year and didn’t get a chance to write a travel post on it yet. My first stop on this trip was Bangkok. So let me start by writing about it. Here is my itinerary that I followed:
1)The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha)
Hours: 8:30 – 15:30
Cost: 400 Baht = $13
2) Wat Pho (Reclining Buddha)
Hours: 8:00 – 17:00
Cost: 100 Baht = $3
3) Wat Arun (Temple of the Dawn)
Hours: 8:30 – 17:30
Cost: 100 Baht= $3
4) Cruise the river
Wasn’t my favorite thing to do as the water was quite polluted. But I’ve heard the night cruises are a lot more fun. So look into the dinner cruises.
5) Khao San Road
Some fun places to eat, drink and get massages. It can get really crowded, so be careful with your belongings here.
This was by far my favorite thing to do here. Ride a boat to all the stores, eat fruits, food, ice-cream etc while touring the market from boat vendors.
2) Watch a Cabaret Show
3) Visit the Night Market
Food, food and more food. This is a fun experience for some streetside shopping, eating and buying cheap souvenirs etc.
1) Jim Thompson’s House
Hours: 9:00 to 18:00
Cost: 150 Baht
2) Visit the Siam Area
You can checkout the Siam Area malls after checking the Jim Thompson house. Its a fun mall to shop at. Every floor is designed like a different country.
I liked the Asiatique shopping riverfront center as well. Fun place to shop, eat and hangout.
4) Siam Niramit
This is a simulated Thai village where you can eat a buffet, tour around and watch some really fun shows. There is a preshow with elephants and cultural dances and the main show which has some really impressive effects.
Other Things To Do:
Here are some other must do’s if you have the time:
1) Lumpini Park
2) Watch a Muay Thai fight – Muay Thai
3) Thai Cooking Class
4) Hangout at a rooftop bar and enjoy views of the city
5) Get a Thai massage
