Top 4 short things to do in Bangkok – Bangkok in a Jiffy

Only in Bangkok for a short while? Here are four places that won't take too long to travel to or to check out during your transit in Thailand's capital.


Asiatique The Riverfront

Bangkok is globally famous and infamous for its thriving nightlife scene which includes everything from bustling night markets to dazzling go-go bars. If your short stay in Bangkok involves being there during the nighttime hours, and you are looking for a tamer night on the town, the former is undoubtedly the better option. Check out night markets such as Asiatique The Riverfront, which is open in the evenings and runs until midnight. This night market features a large array of stalls that sell everything from clothes to toys and food, and is easily accessible from accommodation options such as Chatrium Residence Sathon Bangkok,which is a short taxi drive away, as well as from many conference venues in Bangkok, making it a perfect place to check out during your brief time in the capital. It also has the fortune of being close to the Chao Praya River which also offers other activities for visitors to experience.


River Cruise

Consider embarking on a river cruise along the Chao Praya River before you head down to the Asiatique night market or other markets that stay open even later than that one. Even if you only have a couple of hours in Bangkok, you are likely to find a short cruise that will only span an hour or two, and which involves great views of the river, stopovers at famous tourist attractions such as the Grand Palace, and sumptuous dinner buffets. It's a great way to experience the best of Bangkok within a short period of time; you'll get a taste of Thai cuisine as well as Bangkok's historic and cultural heritage.


Royal City Avenue

Spend your few hours in Bangkok dancing the night away at the capital's party central, RCA, which is short for Royal City Avenue. The place is filled with night clubs playing the latest tunes and featuring prominent local and international DJs. There are often also live concerts held here. If you're worried about your safety, don't be. RCA's venues are more securely policed with the interests of both the establishment and patron in mind, as compared to those of Patpong or other red light districts. You can get to Royal City Avenue via public transport such as the MRT, followed by a cab ride, as there is quite a distance to cover on foot between RCA and the MRT stations.


Rooftop Bars

For a classy night out during your short break in Bangkok, make your way up to one of the city's many rooftop bars. Gorgeous lighting, great décor and mesmerizing views of the skyline and stars await you there. Sip on your favourite cocktail as you enjoy the fresh air and great ambience; it's the perfect place to spend a memorable evening out with friends and family or a romantic date with your significant other.
