Tourism - What to do in Bangkok?

Bangkok city is vibrant and has so many destinations that you must be confused about where to go and what to do when you come to Bangkok, right? So let Asia Links Travel give you suggestions!

For tourists who love historical values and ancient architecture, the Royal Palaces in Bangkok cannot be missed. The most prominent among them is the Grand Palace, a large-scale ancient architectural complex, considered the "heart" of the capital Bangkok. The palace is divided into 3 main areas: the Royal Palace, the Royal Office and the temples. Currently, this palace is the location for important events in Thailand. Thai people believe that visiting the temple in the Grand Palace with the green jade Buddha statue will bring good luck. In addition to the Grand Palace, you can also visit other famous royal palaces in Bangkok such as Vimanmek Palace - Summer Palace of King Rama V or Ananta Samakhom Palace with Renaissance architecture combining unique traditional Thai architecture.

Besides the magnificent palaces imbued with the beauty of Thai culture and history, Bangkok also attracts tourists through its crowded markets with many diverse items for those who have a passion for shopping. Chatuchak is a weekend market in Bangkok, known for its large area and is a place most travelers visit when coming to this city. This is one of the largest outdoor markets in the world, with an area stretching over 1km and containing 15,000 stalls selling a variety of products. In addition, shopping enthusiasts can also visit Ratchada Rot Fai Market - a famous railway night market with young people or Neon Night Market, which always updates fashion products that keep up with trends.

Weather - When is the best time to visit Bangkok?

One important thing you also need to consider before visiting Bangkok to make your trip smooth is the weather here. Bangkok's climate is divided into three distinct seasons.

Cool season (starting November and ending in February next year)

Bangkok's climate at this time is quite cool, little rain, not too hot. However, there are also some places where the weather is a bit chilly. This is the most suitable time for you to explore the vibrant capital of Bangkok, now you can comfortably participate in all the activities here without worrying about anything.

Dry season (Starting from early March to late May)

This can be considered summer in Thailand because the weather can reach up to 40 degrees Celsius. If you visit Bangkok at this time, you should choose indoor sightseeing activities or activities at night to ensure that you will not be tired by hot weather.

Rainy season (The rainy season here lasts quite a long time from about June to October)

Traveling to Bangkok at this time is suitable for tourists with low costs and who love experiences. During this time, Bangkok will not be too crowded with tourists, so you will be able to buy plane tickets and rent rooms at more favorable prices. Besides, you can also freely explore Bangkok without fear of crowds. 

Transport - How to get to Bangkok?

Transferring to Bangkok from a foreign nation

If you are planning to travel to Bangkok, the first thing you need to do is book a plane ticket. To avoid confusion, please note that Bangkok has two airports: Suvarnabhumi and Don Muang Bangkok. Suvarnabhumi International Airport is the largest and newest international airport in Bangkok, providing mostly long-haul international flights to and from Thailand, as well as a selection of domestic and international flights. Direct international flights (no transit). While Don Muang Bangkok Airport is the smaller and older of the two airports, it only receives a few international flights and a large number of other domestic flights. Most Thai low-cost airlines operate at Don Mueang Airport.

From these two airports to move to the center of Bangkok and also move between attractions in the center, visitors have many different choices. For those traveling in large groups and with a reasonable budget, you can choose to take a traditional taxi or a technology taxi. For those who want to save money, they can choose to travel by Airport Rail Link train or bus.

Accommodation - Where to stay in Bangkok?

Coming to the tourist paradise of Bangkok, visitors will have countless accommodation options depending on their needs and economic conditions.

Sukhumvit area: Hotels in this area have average prices and are suitable for tourists who like crowds and bustle. It can be said that this is the busiest area in Bangkok because it fully converges all the elements you need for a trip: entertainment, dining, shopping.

Siam Area: It is known as the "rich area" with a series of luxury shopping centers such as Siam Center, Siam Paragon and Siam Discovery. That's why hotels in this area are among the most expensive in Bangkok. If you have a reasonable budget, you should try this area once to enjoy the "luxurious" life of Bangkok!

Pratunam: This place is famous as Bangkok's busiest shopping area with a series of markets and wholesale and retail stores at very cheap prices, mainly clothing items. Pratunam also has an advantage in travel because it is located between two famous routes connecting Suvarnabhumi airport and Don Muang airport. In addition, it is also located near train stations such as Ratchaprarop station, Phaya Thai station, etc so connecting to Bangkok destinations is also very convenient. Hotel prices in this area are average, suitable for tourists in general.

Khaosan: Though it's a ways out from Bangkok's center, this place is a backpacker's paradise - especially for Westerners. Khaosan is also famous for its delicious Thai food street at very affordable prices. Hotel and shopping costs in Khaosan are also cheaper than in other areas. Because it is located far from the center of Bangkok, there are no train lines to get here, you mainly have to go by taxi, but note that traffic jams in Bangkok are very tight, you have to save time and negotiate the price with the driver in advance!

With diverse and attractive destinations such as bustling night markets, dazzling golden Buddha statues, beautiful temples, suburban parks and many exciting shopping malls, Bangkok is truly a city that you will not miss.
