Top Reasons Why You Should Visit Bangkok – Thailand’s Shining Capital

Bangkok is fast becoming one of the most popular cities to visit in South East Asia. As with any great metropolis, there's a litany of great attractions to visit and experience to be had here. So, if you're still doubting whether a visit is worth it, here're the top reasons to visit Bangkok.


Bangkok Boat Cruises

Interestingly, one of the most exciting things to do in the city is to go on a boat cruise along the waterways. There's a litany of options to choose from here as well, what works for you will probably depend on your mood and what you plan on seeing during the cruise. For example, you can book yourself on one of several available dinner cruises. These will help you enjoy the good life as you slowly drift along drinking in the spectacular sight of the night skyline. Conversely, you can take a day tour on a rice barge and get a taste of what it's like to be a part of the local community. The choice is ultimately up to you! Some of the most excellent hotel deals in Bangkok might even include a cruise in their package, so keep an eye out for that as well.


The City's Temples

Most accommodation deals you'll come across will make mention of Bangkok's temples in their itinerary list – and with good reason too! The city's temples are among its finest attractions, providing a rich window into the region's storied history and culture. One of the best among these is the Wat Pho, found just a few blocks away from the Grand Palace. The Wat Pho is considered to be one of the oldest temples found in Thailand and is believed to have been constructed by King Rama I many centuries ago. If you want to enjoy a birds-eye view of Bangkok, the Wat Saket is where you want to go. Iconic for its famous golden stupa, you can spend hours here at the temple's viewing platforms gazing out over the city.


Learn Thai History

Thailand has quite a history to it – one which included deified kings, great empires and colonial clashes. You can learn all about these events, their key players and so much more by visiting one of the many amazing museums strewn about the city. The Bangkok National Museum is the largest and most feature-rich museum you'll find in the city. This should be your first stop when it comes to learning about the region's history. If you want to see all the brilliant sights and attractions Thailand has to offer in one place, Ancient Siam is where you want to be. This establishment recreates some of the country's most iconic landmarks in an open-air arena.


The Nightlife

There's plenty of nightlife to be enjoyed here in Bangkok. Sukhumvit is known for being the party central of Bangkok and a visit to this lively neighbourhood at night will surely prove it. You'll find everything here, from dance clubs to regal cafes and dive bars.


Thai Culture

One of the most endearing reasons to visit Thailand is the Thai culture at large. The people here are a friendly bunch who will always greet you with a warm smile and a nod of the head. Most locals speak fluent English as well, so don't hesitate to strike up a conversation.
