7 Reasons to Visit Bangkok in Your Lifetime - A Trip Worth Splurging!

Bangkok is one of the ultimate tourist destinations in Asia. And here's the list of reasons why you have to pay a visit to Bangkok at least once in your lifetime.


The Thai Street Food

Thai cuisine has become world-famous and everyone loves it. And there is no better place to taste authentic Thai food than in Bangkok. And the best place in Bangkok is its streets. Some of the most authentic and exquisite local dishes are sold in street food stalls. The flavours, prices and the beautiful tropical weather make it an absolutely amazing experience.


Chatuchak Market

The Chatuchak Market steals second place this list. We're all aware that the Asian markets sell some of the most exotic items. And the Chatuchak Market steals the spotlight. Make sure you keep aside ample time to shop as this covers an area of about 7 hectares of land and is among the world's biggest markets. You can buy a variety of items from puppies to purses!


Getting Around

Another aspect that can make or break a trip is the local transport system. When in Bangkok you have no worries regarding this aspect. There are so many transport options you can choose from according to your budget. From MRT Systems, BTS Skytrain, motorbikes, taxis and tuk-tuks, the choices are limitless. And the best part? Affordable too!



Bangkok may be known as a budget destination. And that is true, backpackers can have a fantastic time out here. But there is another side to Bangkok that boasts of luxury styled living. These Bangkok resorts are actually quite affordable. Some properties like Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort offers discounts you can check out too.



Not everyone loves to wake up by 6 AM and get to bed by 9 PM. We like flexibility in our routine especially when we travel. And thus, an entertaining nightlife is a must. And guess what? Bangkok is one of the best places to head out at night. Some places like the Khao San Road is nocturnal. Sukhumvit, on the other hand, has a good collection of bars, restaurants and nightclubs.


The Chinatown

One of the places you can head out to if you would like to explore the different cultures of Bangkok is the Chinatown which is a fascinating place. You can roam around little alleyways, taste the delicious local cuisine, shop around and pick up trinkets and even explore magnificent temples! That will be an evening well spent.


Thai Massages

After exploring the beautiful city, your tired feet and shoulders will be craving for some attention. For this, you can indulge in some local authentic Thai massages which are famous all over the globe. Whether you want to pamper a particular part of the body like the feet or go for a whole-body treatment, is up to you. It is guaranteed that you will get up the next morning feeling very relaxed and rejuvenated, to take on more exploring of this city.
