Top 10 Things to Do in Bangkok – Your bucket list for a popping vacation!

Contrary to being the traffic-jam capital of the planet, Bangkok is not a destination to pass up on your travel expeditions! This list of 10 things to do in Bangkok will help you look beyond the monotony of skyscrapers and tooting horns to see the better things that await to be explored!

1

Take a trip to Wonderland

Oh, did we say Wonderland? We meant the Chatuchak Market but what difference does it even make!! The Chatuchak Market more commonly known as J.J Market is one of the biggest markets spanning the world and is certainly a shopaholics paradise! Over a regular weekend, this market attracts a hefty 200,000 visitors a day, scouring through the stalls and their intricate products lost in the glamour and bling that the J.J Market is!

A splurge bonanza at the Siam Paragon!

Now, this is the place to be to keep up with the high-end fashion and lifestyle trends in Bangkok! Housing a variety of different premium fashion brands, Southeast Asia's largest aquarium and a massive multiplex cinema and most importantly, a bazillion different eateries possibly adequate to feed the world should we all go into famine!

Bangkok National Museum – A stroll through the history

The largest collection of ancient artefacts and Thai art in the whole of Thailand, this establishment is a must-visit. Initiated by King Rama V as a display of his luxurious gifts from his father, the collection features a variety of items such as Chinese weapons, puppets, precious stones, ancient tapestry and even Khon masks!

Get a Traditional Thai Massage

Where better to experience a traditional, luxury Thai massage than its own land of origin? It will leave you feeling invigorated and well-adjusted and in good form to conquer your holiday destiny! Most accommodation options of Bangkok such as Chatrium Residence Riverside Bangkok, a premium provider of serviced apartment in Bangkok, come with their own Spa facilities or have an abundance of such facilities in close proximity to provide you with the ultimate relaxation experience.

5

Eat out at Chinatown

Walking into Bangkok's Chinatown is everything you can imagine it would be like to walk into (food) heaven! The humungous ceremonial Chinese gates open into Chinatown itself and are jam-packed with street stalls and restaurants with a choice of foods that will get your head spinning. All the more reason to visit is their eye-popping low prices!

6

The thrill of a two-wheeled taxi ride!

Those visitors intrigued by the tuk-tuk culture in Asian are in for a real treat with Bangkok's motorcycle taxis! Hopping onboard one is about one of the coolest things you get to do in Bangkok! Save yourself a couple of hours of having to sit through a jam and have a breezy ride to get to your destination!

7

Bangkok Puppet show

This magnificent yet fast becoming obsolete art form truly deserves to be witnessed and appreciated when in Bangkok! The set design and craftsmanship that goes into manning the puppets, coordinating acoustic effects and preparation of props is truly admirable and praiseworthy!

8

The Durian Capital

You could possibly smell these miles coming! First looks might not be as inviting as it is with its medieval thorny weapon kind of outlook, but it most definitely is a divine treat! As overwhelming as its smell is, you are bound to be befuddled by its silky texture and its rich milky, sweet and syrupy taste.

9

The classic Muy Thai

The adrenaline pump of a game of Muy Thai (and the spritz of a Mai Tai even) can be best enjoyed in Thailand, the land of its origin! The biggest of these kickboxing matches are often held in Bangkok and is rallied for by a stadium full of people cheering with intense passion and immersion!

10

Bangkok Nightlife

The spirit of the city is truly the life of the party! From hip cocktail bars to exclusive nightclubs, the energy about Bangkok's atmosphere is young and lively and you are guaranteed some of your best memories in this exquisite little city!
