7 Fabulous things to do in Bangkok – Attractions of Bangkok you must not miss

Bangkok has everything to offer to a solo traveller. You may be someone who doesn't like cities filled with endless commotion, but Bangkok may turn your opinion around; the city is energetic and diverse.


The architecture

The contrast between modern skyscrapers and historic buildings is fascinating. The city's funky architecture resides right beside the glamour of skyscrapers. The traditional homes, temples and highways form a heterogeneous mix. The way this mega city has developed on three levels is extraordinary. The cars, tuk-tuks and bikes aren't affected by the traffic of the ground level; the cutting-edge sky train occupies the first level while the top level is dominated by the skywalk: the skywalk allows people to walk freely across the city without the bother of traffic. A tourist should explore all three levels; taking a tuk-tuk ride is one of the most fascinating things to do in Bangkok.


The temples

Bangkok is as modern as it gets, but the prevailing modernity does nothing to tamper with the traditional allure of the city. The temples scattered all over the city are among the best Bangkok features, and visiting them is a must. Even if you haven't got much time, you should at least visit Wat Pho, Wat Arun, Wat Phra Kaew – if happen to find a family room hotel Bangkok near these temples, it'll be an easy trip for you. Temples are an incredible feature of the city that unravels the tale of a bygone era. The architecture of these temples is unlike what you've seen before. The gilded motifs, the ornamental roofs and the murals found inside are exceptional works of art.


Floating markets and Bangkok canals

Located just paces away from the area that's packed with temples, Bangkok canals and floating markets are the city's most quintessential feature. You can get to these canals easily if you are staying at Pathumwan Princess Hotel by way of Skytrain. One of the most fascinating things you can do in Bangkok is to go exploring the canals on a longboat. While you are at it, you can buy various trinkets from the floating markets that crowd the canals.


Jim Thompson House

The man who reinvented the silk industry in Thailand, Jim Thompson, was an American architect who became much attached to Thailand. He did everything he possibly could to restore the country's silk industry to its previous state. He loved the country so much so that he set up his home in Thailand; his residence is called Jim Thompson House. The house reflects his architectural talents, and you can see the effect Thai traditions had on Thompson's imagination. He disappeared in 1967 during a visit to Malaysia without a trace. The house is one of the best attractions in Bangkok that draws people who love admiring architecture.


The flower market

Pak Klong is another place in Bangkok that calls for a visit. The flower market is open around the clock. You find every sort of flower at Pak Klong, and ice is used to keep them from being wilted.


Street food

Bangkok should offer its thanks to its lively street food scene for the hundreds of gourmet travellers that stream into the city. Street markets are packed with a variety of street food, and travellers can't help falling in love with what they encounter. If you love novelty and don't mind a bit of strong flavour, you must go on a street food tour and taste as many food items as you can.


Bangkok nightlife

Like every other aspect of Bangkok, its nightlife is full of character. Come nightfall, you can see locals as well as tourists making their way to the city's clubs and bars. There's much diversity when it comes to Bangkok's night clubs; finding a nightclub that suits one's temperament is no hardship.
