5 Fabulous Things to Do in Bangkok – Expereince the best of the metropolis

With a myriad of attractions, Bangkok seems to be one of those cities that transcends the monotonous pattern of everyday life. Offering something unique even for the frequent visitor, Bangkok is the perfect blend of food, culture, nightlife and shopping.


Explore Chinatown

Famed for its mouth-watering street eatables and the bric-a-brac shops where one can find knick-knacks that tickle their fancy, the thriving Chinatown lies in Yaowarat road in Bangkok. The flashy neon lights and the jewellery shops that sell their fair share of gold jewellery are what give Chinatown its own unique charm.


Visit the Floating Markets

The famous floating markets of Bangkok are some of the must-visit places if one prefers to experience the authentic culture of Thailand. They offer a unique experience for the first-time visitor. The floating markets have something for everyone. Damnoen Saduak, Amphawa, and Bang Nam Pheung are some of the popular floating markets that offer a variety of things ranging from Thai food and fresh produce to local souvenirs and ornaments. One is advised to visit these picturesque markets as early as it's possible as it tends to get crowded towards the noon.


Investigate Heritage Sites

Bangkok is not just a modern place of enjoyment, but it also homes symbols from the ancient times that represent the flourishing olden days of the vibrant city. The Grand Palace of Bangkok is a spectacular construction that was once the royal residence for many a year. In the immediate vicinity lies Wat Pho, which is more famous as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. It is so vast that it cannot be viewed in its entirety. The Temple of the Dawn or Wat Arun is another fascinating site where the visitor will be rewarded with a fantastic view of the sunset. Temple of the Golden Buddha is another attraction of this beautiful city.


Hang Out in the Lumpini Park

Lumpini Park is an oasis of lush green serenity away from the constant hustle of Bangkok city. It is the place to be after an exciting morning of sightseeing and hunting for trinkets in Chinatown. One can bask in the shades of the trees while eyeing the detailed Chinese pagoda. It is safer to stay away from the coconut groves though, as there is a risk of ripe coconuts falling out from the trees. The surrounding lake is ideal for a boat ride. While on the boat, one can appreciate a contrasting view of the towering skyscrapers in the vicinity with the calming environment of the park. The calm waters of the lake homes creatures such as the water monitors who are quite harmless unless provoked.


Shop till You Drop

It is a known fact that one can shop for quality products in Bangkok. The fact you need to really know is that these products can be bought at unbelievably low prices. The secret to winning the best deals at these markets and malls is to bargain hard. You can purchase uniquely fashionable clothing and accessories from many budget-friendly malls that are around Bangkok serviced apartments. A short stay in Bangkok will surely be fantastic if you can get your hands on some killer knockouts of the world-famous brands. Pan Tip Plaza and Platinum Fashion Mall are two such malls that lie in proximity to Citadines Sukhumvit 16 Bangkok.
