Bangkok has every kind of experience, for every kind of traveler. The color and majesty of this capital city makes everyone happy, including the Thai people, who are known for their sense of sa-nuk (fun). For a truly colorful experience, marvel at the gleaming, gold-spired temples, when you catch a tuk-tuk ride to bustling Chinatown. Spend an afternoon by the Sampran River’s floating market, Damnoen Saduak, where local women sell flowers and produce from their shallow boats.
For famous places that tell a story, visit these three celebrated temples: The Marble Temple, Temple of the Reclining Buddha and Temple of the Golden Buddha. Once a royal residence, The Grand Palace is now one of the most visited landmarks of Thailand — and one that shouldn’t be missed. And, in the center of the city, the Emerald Buddha holds court surrounded by rubies, sapphires and gold.
An essential Bangkok experience is shopping in its markets. Locals and visitors alike flock to the Chatuchak Weekend Market to bargain for treasures of every kind, such as souvenirs, original Thai art, clothes and more. It’s a great city for bargain hunting; however, there are plenty of upscale shopping malls and boutiques throughout the city.
One of the ultimate joys of visiting Bangkok is the Thai street food stall. From spicy Thai curry with rice to bowls of piping-hot noodles and grilled meats, the deliciousness is sure to please any palate and pocketbook. In most neighborhoods, vendor carts and classic restaurants dot the streets, providing ample opportunities to feast on your way to or from the many attractions. For entertainment, Bangkok’s nightlife runs the gamut from Thai dinner/dance shows, pubs and nightspots to the infamous clubs of Patpong and Sol Cowboy.
