About bangkok

The capital of Thailand, Krung Thep or Bangkok is one of Asia’s most cosmopolitan cities. With its magnificent temples, authentic canals, exotic food, busy markets, visual delights and a vibrant nightlife, Bangkok has something for everyone. That’s why it’s often rated as the number one tourist destination, welcoming the most number of international visitors. Bangkok is considered as the gateway to the Southeast Asian world and is usually scheduled as a stopover between cities, but to fully enjoy the wonders of this intoxicating city, you’ll need more than just a couple of days. Popularly known as the 'City of Angels', you’ll find visitors everywhere taking in the sights and sounds of Bangkok by tuk-tuk, canals, bicycle or foot. Though it might seem noisy and chaotic, there is so much to discover within the city from skyscrapers with sky bars to the countless temples and the backpacking area around the Khao San Road. Bangkok is also famous for its street food like the hot dogs, seafood snacks, and noodle soup. The popular places to visit are the Wat Arun, Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Floating Market and more. The boat tours are a once-in-a-lifetime experience, just like shopping in Bangkok.

bangkok Travel Guide , thailand

Fun-filled holidays are almost synonymous with Bangkok because that is where most of the action takes place when it comes to Thailand as a holiday destination. Filled with lots of entertainment, cheap and delicious food and amazing cultural and heritage sights, our Bangkok travel guide will prove that you have taken the right decision about holidaying in this land of amazement!

The soaring skyscrapers overlooking the busy streets of tourists and locals, the colourful cabs and Tuk-Tuks, the divine waft of delicious street food simultaneously lined by rich heritage and cultural sights is what makes city the most favourite among tourists. The nature of the city is an amalgamation of modern contemporary and ancient history which provides the perfect ambience for a vacation. During the day, you can Buddhists monks in yellow robes walking about in the city and at night you can see the locals and tourists alike living it up in parties, and that is what makes this city so special. Be sure to go on a guided tour of Bangkok so that you do not miss any of these wonderful sights!

Bangkok has a rather tropical climate and no matter the month of your vacation, it is going to be hot! The monsoon season is from the month of May until November when the weather is humid and warm. The months of November to January is pretty cool but you wouldn’t call it winters. This can be considered as the best time to visit in Bangkok. Never plan your Bangkok trip in the months’ march to May as this is the time heat is at its peak in this city.

Here we list out some of the famous and top tourist sights to visit which you can refer as a Bangkok tour guide while holidaying here.

● Grand Palace

The grand palace, as the name suggests, is a mesmerising spot to visit in Bangkok city filled with rich ancient culture. Security here is pretty tight and you may have to produce a valid ID card. Since this is a holy site, the dress code is also pretty strict so remember to abide by the dress code. Women should wear pants or skirts covering their knees and men definitely need to wear long pants as shorts are not allowed (however long they are). The shoulders are also to be covered for the men. Even if you aren’t wearing appropriate clothing, you can always rent pull overs at the entrance itself for which you will have to pay up a deposit. The structures in the palace and the temples surrounding it is a stunning sight to see which shimmers and glitters in the morning sun! no photograph will do justice to the beauty of the palace. Here, your eyes are the best camera.

● Wat Pho 

Once you finish visiting the Grand Palace, you can move on to Wat Pho which is just next to the palace. We strongly suggest, you take a tuk-tuk ride from grand palace to Wat Pho.Wat Pho is also famously known as the temple of the reclining Buddha. In this sight, also you will be required to wear appropriate clothing but securities aren’t as strict as what you would encounter at the grand palace. There are more than a thousand images of Buddha in the Wat Pho temple but the major attraction is the reclining Buddha. This Buddha statue is about 160 feet long and tourists throng to this temple to catch a glimpse of this stunning statue. The temple is filled with beautiful colourful Jedi’s all around.

● Wat Arun

Among all the temples in Bangkok Wat Arun is a favourite of many tourists and locals alike. You will have a take a boat from Wat Pho and cross the river to visit this beautiful temple of Wat Arun. This temple is surrounded by beautiful gardens where you can stroll around and take in all the stunning visuals of the beautiful white marbled statues on the temple with intricate designs and cuts. Here too you will need to wear appropriate clothing to enter the premises. There are two huge statues at the entrance to the temple which provides a good photo opportunity.

The three places mentioned above, Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun are the major tourist attractions in Bangkok is filled with tourists’ day in and day out. But you should definitely not miss visiting these three spots while on a guided tour of Bangkok as they are some must-see places to visit in Bangkok.

● floating markets

every tourist who visits Bangkok will definitively have a visit to the floating markets on their Bangkok tour packages. The markets are quite far from the city and you may have to wake up really in the morning and begin your journey to the floating market. There is even a smaller floating market which is approximately 12kms from Siam Paragon which you can visit if you do not want to travel long distances. Once you reach, hop on to a boat and you will be taking through various shops on both sides where you can buy some really nice souvenirs, artefacts, and gorge on some delicious food while rafting through the waters. Some of the famous floating markets are Damnoen Saduak, Amphawa, Talin Chan, Khlong Lat Mayom and Bang Nam Pheung.

● Lumpini Park

Lumpini park is a serene and tranquil park at the heart of the city which has been named after Lord Buddha’s birthplace in Nepal. There are so many varieties of flora and fauna in this park where you can spend a peaceful and relaxing day with your family. The history of this park dates back to 1920s which was earlier used as an exhibition centre to display the flowers and crafts of Thailand.
