What to do in Bangkok in a Day - Key items to include in your checklist

A city that is enormous in its offerings; twenty-four hours to make the best of it. This is a list of things to check off as you explore hustling Bangkok within a single day.

1

Visit Wat Arun

Wat Arun, or the Temple of Dawn, is one of the most iconic temples in Bangkok. It is located on the brinks of Chao Phraya River, where the famous rice barrage of Anantara Cruises, Thailand makes its way. It is essential that you take a camera on your expedition to Wat Arun, and it is imperative that you climb to the top of the temple. From here, you will be able to enjoy amazing views of the city as well as of the river that is truly breathtaking.

Float down Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market

The Floating market combines two of the best things about Bangkok: cruises and food. To see the city, no one would think it the perfect location for a sundown cruise. But floating markets have been in operation in Bangkok since times of old, and it is quite common for the visitors to float down the river enjoying an essential part of culture. Khlong Lat Mayom floating market takes place on weekends and serves delicious food whipped up on a floating boat. If you are not interested in trying the street food, you can merely browse through the dry goods and select some spices to take home with you in memory of a titillating city.

Grand Palace

The Grand Palace is inarguably the most visited and the most touristy part of Bangkok. However, this title is well deserved as this is a truly iconic structure. Once the home of Thai Royal lineage, it is now more of a museum cum ceremony hall with special functions taking place here. Entrance to the Grand Palace costs a ticket of a minimal amount, and it is essential that you are appropriately dressed. Although it is one of the more iconic structures in the city, the whole Palace is not open to the public. The bits of the garden and the palace that are open, though, speak volumes of the cultural heritage of the country.

Benjakiti Park

Benjakiti Park is the place to go when the hustling of the city gets to you and you want to sit down and take a deep breath. The Park is decorated with gorgeous flowers that well maintained. There are birds and other little critters one would associate with a park, as well as a massive lake that creates a sense of peaceful serenity. Serenity is hard to come by in a city like Bangkok where everything is fast paced. Thus a visit to Benjakiti Park is a good way to soothe your frazzled nerves. The best time to visit the Park would be towards late evening when the heat is less and the sky is painted a glorious orange. With one side of your view being of trees and lakes, the other that of skyscrapers and a modern skyline, the Benjakiti Park is a good place to sum up everything that Bangkok has to offer.
