An Introduction to Bangkok
The City of Bangkok is rich with cultural and spiritual traditions while also being Thailand’s center of finance and economics. The city is known for its vibrant street life and incredible markets found both within the streets and even on the river Chao Phraya River. It is a tropical metropolis with warm temperatures and occasional rains, providing just the right atmosphere to produce exotic fruits and flowers. Bangkok is sprawling with museums, temples, as well as religious and cultural heritage sites available for public viewing. You will be amazed by the intricate designs found in the art work that decorates the architecture of this city.
While in Bangkok
There are so many things for travelers to do in Bangkok. The capital of Thailand has something for everyone, from the temples to its markets and shopping malls, museums, palaces and beautiful architecture. There are a huge number of tours to book or you can simply see the city through an exhilarating tuk tuk drive or river cruise. Be sure to try all the exotic food you can find, there’s always something to sample from the street vendors to the restaurants at the top of skyscrapers. The transport is excellent by train, boat, moped, you name it, so don’t be shy and get ready for a host of new experiences. One step out of your hotel and you’ll find yourself immersed in a beautifully chaotic metropolis like no other.
What to see and do in Bangkok
Whether on a budget or not one of the best ways to explore Bangkok is by the moped drawn carriage known as a tuk-tuk. They will take you to all the major temples and viewing spots for an incredibly cheap deal but try to resist having your driver take you to too many undesired stops, they get money for dropping customers at local shops – but don’t worry, just be firm! Alternatively, booking a ticket on the sky train or even a river taxi can be just as fun and provide an alternative look at the city, be careful for rush hour though.
Some of the top visitor attractions are as follows:
- Grand Palace
- Wat Phra Kaew
- Wat Arun
- Jim Thompson House
- Khoasan Road
- Lumphini Park
- Golden Buddha
- Floating Market
- Lumpini Park
- Bankok Art and Culture Centre
It’s definitely worth booking at least one tour to see the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. There are many to choose from including the cheaper options of biking and walking tours, the popular and budget friendly river boat tours and the all inclusive temple and market tours. Food tours are very popular in Bangkok and offer a concentrated dose of the exotic cuisine. Many companies offer private tours at a very reasonable rate. Your hotel or local tourist center may have discounts so be sure to check before booking.
Food in Bangkok
Bangkok has an awesome range of local restaurants and fine cuisine. However, some of the best places are serving street food style menus in open fronted shop houses, with a fan to cool you if you’re lucky. The city is covered with these restaurants as almost every meal is eaten out, making it one of the world’s greatest – and most affordable – cities for food lovers.
Jae Fai Restaurant: Jae Fai Restaurant’s is known for it’s incredible crab meat dishes and for many experienced street food connoisseurs in Bangkok, this is the real draw card for genuine local Thai food.
Lek Seafood Silom: Keeping the mood truly local, the chairs are plastic, tables are stainless steel and beer should be drunk with ice. It’s close to Silom Road and the menu is in English. The staff speak English and are very friendly.
Din Pao Vietnamese at Chatuchak Market: Chatuchak Market is full of wonderful local food and snacks. For a larger meal, this is a great choice located a short walk from the MRT Underground at Kampheng Phet.
Shopping in Bangkok
The variety of shopping in Bangkok is much more than a walk through a mall or a morning at the market. Shopping in Bangkok is a full on experience that rivals the best in the West, while also giving a flavour of the cultural uniqueness of the East.
Popular Shopping Areas
Asiatique: This district combined two of the most popular shopping experiences in the city: a night market and a mall. Ten minutes from Saphan Taksin BTS station the once trade port now high-end shopping area, with over 1,500 boutiques and 40 restaurants right under a huge replica warehouse complex.
Siam Paragon: Siam Paragon is a hugely popular shopping mall with many international high-end fashion brands. It also contains Southeast Asia’s largest aquarium, a 16-screen Cineplex, and a huge variety of world cuisine. Located in front of Siam BTS Skytrain station – the interchange of the two BTS lines – it is considered by many to be the centre of Bangkok.
Nightlife in Bangkok
The packed bars, huge nightclubs, bizarre shows and elegant cocktail bars is one of the main reasons so many book their flights to Bangkok every year. There is never a lack of choice and there’s something to suit almost any budget. Whether you’re partying down the hostel and cheap hotel district of Khao San Road or sipping fancy drinks on a roof top, any visitor is sure to have a good time.
With such a high volume of visitors the clubbing scene has blown up in Bangkok, with something happening every night. Demo is very popular with a young and wealthy crowd who love to go crazy, this club is one of the loudest in the city. There are two rooms: the neon-orange bar area close to the entrance plays hip hop and is a nice place to warm up, while the main room is the domain of cutting-edge house and electro.
Brown Sugar has been serving Bangkok’s live music fans with jazz ensembles sinc 1985 and has never fails to deliver a good time. All these yeas of incredible service, Brown Sugar has now moved from Sarasin Rd. to Phrasumen Rd. – a bigger venue.
The Vertigo and Moon bar is considered Bangkok’s best rooftop bar based on the Banyan Tree Hotel. The Speakeasy at Hotel Muse is also worth mentioning for its charming 1920’s décor.
