In case you ever go to Bangkok, there are some things that you shouldn’t miss out on.
1. The Royal and The Divine
If you would like to see a temple in the city, it should be the Grand Palace. This is a place where the royal meets the divine. From here you should go to Wat Phra Kaew.
2. The Canal System
In order to get around, the local use a canal system known as klongs on the Chao Phraya River. This means of transportation is relatively cheap and there are a lot of attractions to see.
3. Street Food

No matter what kind of budget you have, it is a must to try the street food of the city at least once. The best thing you could do is to observe the local and eat where they eat; it’s difficult to find bad food in Bangkok.
4. Get a Drink
If you would like to escape the city for a short while, go to the Dome at the Lebua Hotel. On the 64th floor you will find one of the most exclusive restaurants and bars of the city which offers a stunning view.
5. The Markets
In case you would like to do some shopping, don’t forget about the markets. Take a trip to the Chatuchak market. In order to make the day a successful one, you will need a map and a pair of very comfortable shoes.
6. Shop like Locals
There are so many things to buy in Bangkok. If you don’t like the market, there are some other places you could visit as well, such as Platinum Mall, Siam Center, Central Worlds, Siam Paragon, and Central Plaza.
In order to avoid the traffic, you should travel by Skytrain. These trains are clean and reliable and they offer the fastest way of transportation in the crowded city.
8. Art Adventures
If you are into art, you shouldn’t miss out on the art institutions and street art. There are a lot of museums and galleries that offer you access to traditional and modern art. One of the places to visit is 100 Tonson Gallery.
9. Thai Massage and Spa
It’s a sin to leave the city without having a Thai massage. This is unlike any other massage you ever got. For the perfect experience visit Kiriya Spa.
10. X-Rated Adventures
Even if you aren’t into fun of this kind, you shouldn’t forget about the fun offered by the underworld of the city.
