5 Fun Activities to Do in Bangkok

Bangkok has a lot of fun activities for tourists to try. Here are five of them:


Buy Goods at the Floating Market

Take your trip to a whole new level and experience how locals do their everyday grocery shopping by visiting Bangkok’s many floating markets. There’s plenty to choose from son take your pick: Damnoem Saduak, Amphawa, Taling Chan, and many more.


Visit Many Landmarks at the Grand Palace

You’ll be overwhelmed by the grandeur of the Grand Palace once you set foot into this complex built in 1872. The exterior of the Palace is just the beginning because once you step inside, you’ll see a host of other impressive buildings like the Wat Phra Kaew or the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. You’ll surely feel like royalty when you see the courts inside the palace which houses high-ranking authorities in the government.


Relax at Wat Pho

There’s more to the Reclining Buddha at Wat Pho, although yes, you definitely have to see the gigantic Buddha covered in gold. The rest of the temple is perfect for early morning walks and tours because although Wat Pho is just as popular as the Grand Palace, not a lot of people really take time to explore the area. You can go for guided tours or you can also enjoy some peaceful alone time.


Exploring the 35-acre Chatuchak Market

Yes, it’s 35 acres alright. That means a lot of territory to explore and a lot of things sold at very affordable prices. At first, you might feel overwhelmed when navigating Chatuchak but there’s actually a trick to master this maze of shopping goodness. Enter through the main walkway and from there, you’ll find numbered alleyways to make roaming around easier.


Enjoy the Urban River

Ride a tourist boat or the one that locals take and feel the cool wind as you said along the Chao Phraya River. This landmark plays a significant history in Thai culture and progress so don’t miss the chance to experience this river ride.
