Top Things to Do in Bangkok

Discover tours, attractions and activities for your next adventure

Floating Market

Floating Market

Everyone who have visited Bangkok will agree that Bangkok floating markets in Bangkok are the most interesting attractions of all. There are eight floating markets in total and while it's recommendable to visit all of them, it's understandable if you have to narrow your choice to only one floating market. In that case, we recommend you to visit Amphawa floating market. Hop into the long boat and immerse yourself in a pleasantly crowded Amphawa Market. Here you're not only be able to experience the South-East Venice vibes, you can also shop interesting local products such as handicrafts, fashionable clothings and accessories, and even some interesting arts. Show off your bargaining skills to get your desired items in much affordable prices. Don't forget to try some grilled fishes and other seafood delicacies. There are also some interesting hidden temples waiting for you. Capture rare and romantic moment of fireflies dances around the riverbank at night by joining firefly watching tour.

The Grand Palace

The Grand Palace

The Grand Palace is the most sacred attraction in Bangkok, this is not an exaggeration. It's located in the heart of Bangkok where the Thai King and the Royal Courts used to live there for 150 years. The palace complex are divided into two main zones, Temple of the Emerald Buddha and the royal residence which divided into three major courts. The outer court is a place built for several state offices, while the middle court is a place where the coronation ceremonies usually take place. Meanwhile the inner court was men-restricted residential area. It is said that only the King could enter the court. The Queens, Consort Mothers, Princesses and their servants lived. Now the residential areas are left vacant. The Temple of the Emerald Buddha or also known as Wat Phra Kaew is the most interesting attraction inside the Grand Palace. The temple housed a 2000 years-old small Buddha statue made of beautiful jade stone crafted by India sculptors. The highly-reverred statue is always wearing a robe that are changed by the Thai King himself according to the season. If you look around the wall, you'll noticed artsy mural paintings depicting the life of Lord Buddha. There are also paintings depicting scenes of Ramakien, or the Indian version of Ramayana. They are beautiful even the atmosphere in the temple is so serene and solemn. Sadly, you are not allowed to get a closer look to the Buddha statue. Only the Thai King is allowed to do so. You are free to take some photos, though some areas might be restricted.
