Things to Do in Bangkok

The capital of Thailand, and one of the biggest cities in the world, Bangkok is a city where anything goes. First impressions might be of a heaving metropolis with busy markets, traffic and congestion but dig a little deeper and you’ll find a beautiful and historic city where everyone can find something to entertain and delight. Unique nightlife, incredible street food, ancient temples - just three highlights of a city that comes with a big reputation and doesn’t fail to deliver.

Areas & Neighbourhoods in Bangkok

Silom - At night this is the city’s main party district, home to the infamous Patpong area among others, where there really is something for everyone.

Siam Square - The modern centre of Bangkok, head here if you’re looking for upmarket shopping malls with great prices. Check out the Ratchaprasong and Phloen Chit Road areas.

Dusit - The political hub of the country and where you’ll find plenty of leafy palaces and green gardens to explore. An area with its own distinct character.

Sukhumvit - Popular with expats because of the sheer number of high end restaurants and bars here. The nightlife is also great, with a naughty side too.

Rattanakosin - The ‘old Bangkok’, where you can stumble across many of the city’s best known sites - including the Grand Palace and Wat Pho.

Things to See in Bangkok

You can’t miss the ancient side of Bangkok during your stay. The Grand Palace and exquisite temples of Wat Arun and Wat Phra Kaew are must sees. If you’re looking for the best city views, check out the Wat Saket - a true city of gold. For some top shopping and a more modern view of the city, the districts around Siam Square are dotted with upmarket shopping options. Of course, this being Bangkok, you don’t really have to ‘see’ anything in the conventional sense. Just explore, take in the electric atmosphere, sample the incredible street food and discover a side of the city that suits your personality. With so much to see, why not explore all this with a tuk tuk tour.

Things to Do in Bangkok

Take plenty of holiday snaps as you wander round the magnificent Grand Palace and Wat Arun. Check out the floating market, where sellers load up and head out into the harbour to flog their goods to passing customers. These overloaded wooden boats are stocked high with brightly coloured fruits and vegetables, and it’s the best place to go to grab a quick noodle dish. Explore the busy Chinatown area, a chaotic but fun part of town, and wander round Wat Pho, the old part of the city to get a feel for the history of this incredible place. Take a boat out on the Chao Phraya River, exploring this maze of waterways for a different experience of the city.
