5 Reasons Why Bangkok Is One Of The Most Visited Cities In The World – The best of this urban hub

Thailand is quite a large country with so many interesting places to explore. But, among them all, Bangkok seems to stand out. Each year, this city sees millions of visitors. But what makes Bangkok the go-to place?


Wat Arun

Google Bangkok and you'll find that the very first pictures to pop up are those of a temple called Wat Arun or when translated, known as The Temple of Dawn. This proves that Wat Arun is the most iconic attraction in Bangkok despite its urban culture. Located towards the west of Chao Phraya River, the temple's most alluring piece is the centre spire which is 70 metres in height. It is embellished in glass and Chinese porcelain and looks absolutely regal at night. With the golden lighting, the temple looks much like a glowing treasure against the backdrop of the night sky.


Floating Markets

This is one of the signature attractions of Southeast Asia and the floating markets in Thailand are a wonderful treat! The best way to explore these markets would be by taking up those tempting boat tour offers. Hop on a boat and sail across the river watching the tinier boats filled with fresh produce, all kinds of juices and even grills cooking delicious street food! The whole scene really brings out the local culture and the simplicity of the Thai people. The most visited markets are Klong Lat Mayom, Damnoen Saduak and Amphawa.


Khao San Road

If you are a backpacker, you are definitely going to find your accommodation at the best rates down Khao San Road. This is where the youth of Bangkok flock by night for some quirky fun. Khao San Road is all about the party scene! The streets are lined with restaurants and bars that serve up some heady cocktails, great beers and offer an exciting ambience. All young travellers are drawn to this place at some point or another.


The Grand Palace

This is the most awesome piece of history that still remains today in the city of Bangkok. Even with a number of great skyscraper buildings, this grand structure still stands out. It was constructed back in 1782 and was once the Royal Residence of the King and his subordinates. Walk in and discover the strong Buddhist culture of the Thais even in the past. You'll find several images of Buddha, the most revered one being The Emerald Buddha which is a priceless artefact here. The attraction is just a short drive away from lyf Sukhumvit 8 Bangkok, a popular property offering co living space Bangkok.


Thai Massages

Since there are so many places to visit in this city, all those temple visits, shopping and night outings are going to leave you feeling exhausted. The best solution? Why it's a Thai massage of course! Make sure to do a bit of research for the ideal spots. You'll be walking in all tired and worn out, but you'll be walking out as though you are floating on air.
