Top 5 Attractions in Sathorn, Bangkok

Unfazed by the immense success and popularity of its many neighbours, the city of Sathorn in Bangkok has blossomed to be a centre for fitness and relaxation in addition to the usual big city delights.


Dance Your Cares Away

Various types of entertainment are high on the list of priorities in Thailand and both tourists and locals have the option of engaging in these lightly hearted forms of entertainment. The Thais see it as an alternative to an orthodox fitness routine; as result, dance schools reside in health and fitness centres in Sathorn. There are dance trainers who work closely to get you in shape and rhythm just like a typical gym instructor.


Watch Some Boxing

The city's ring known as the Lumpini Boxing Stadium is where much of the activity takes place whether boxing related or not. Muay Thai boxing is what takes place most of the time. Watch the calendar before you plan to head over as the boxing ring closes a couple of times during the week, including Wednesdays. Matches to take place often enough but if you bore yourself out with boxing, you only need to venture out and walk across to the golf course to enjoy a completely different cup of tea.


Relax at Lumpini Park

No one would think that amidst the skyscrapers, commercial buildings and even many a Sathorn hotel Bangkok, that they would be able to find solace in a peaceful park. The Lumpini Park is not only for the fitness fanatics who prefer the outdoors to the machines inside a gym. It is for those who wish to meditate, follow a tango lesson or bite into a sandwich in the shade of a tree.


Visit a Mansion

The Thais have a profound level of respect towards their royal family and an educated Prime Minister who hails from the royal family would undoubtedly draw admiration and respect. M. R. Kukrit whose literary work, contribution to the arena of politics and Thai culture are spoken of to this date, owned a mansion named after him. It is referred to as a 'Heritage Home' and comprises five teakwood structures built on stilts in true Thai style. The gardens are a bit crowded close to the main structures but relax into lawns farther away. The premises are beautiful and is a great way to visit artefacts, collections of books and paintings of Thailand.


See the City from the Sky

With the Chao Phraya River on one side and the views of a multitude of modern and vintage structures and city lights on the other, spending an evening at a sky bar is a breath-taking experience. Most people prefer to purchase a drink and a few snacks before dropping into a bar stool or a comfortable couch while they catch up with friends and watch the entrance of twilight. It could be at a plush hotel such as the Anantara Sathorn Bangkok Hotel or an ordinary restaurant in the sky that serves you the food and drink while you relax and acquaint yourself with the skies of Sathorn.
