Top 10 Things to Do in Bangkok 2013
72 hours may seem like a short time but it will be enough to discover the best places to visit in Bangkok. You should of-course have have a game plan! This article is a condensed list of the best things to do Bangkok, along with must-see attractions in 2013.
1. A visit in Bangkok won’t be complete without going to the most famous tourist destination in BKK The Grand Palace. There are no words appropriate to describe the Grand Palace but needless to say, its stunning. The mixture of the architectural design is impressive and it will let you have a glimpse of the rich art and culture of Thailand. You will need at least two to three hours to cover the whole palace; within the palace are several more buildings like the Wat Phra Kaew and The Thai Temple of Emerald Buddha or in Thai “Wat Phrakaew.”
2. Khao San road is home to the backpackers visiting country from all over the world. It’s a street filled with budget hostels, restaurants, lots of bars, market stalls and gift shops. This place is unlike any other place in Bangkok. It is chaos at its finest. Spend a night getting drunk on cheap beer or vodka whiskey buckets, eat fried insects and bargain for cheap statement shirts. The plan sounds scary at first, but after your third bottle of Singha beer, you’ll realize you’re really enjoying yourself.
3. Chatuchak weekend market is one of the biggest outdoor markets in the world. With almost 8,000 market stalls, you are sure to leave with a bag or two of goodies. You’ll find everything there from clothes, furniture, food, books, plants, accessories, handicrafts, shoes, and I kid you not, you will find yourself having a staring contest with a monkey. Yes, you can even buy a monkey here but please don’t as you may find yourself in a pickle with Thai customs at the airport. This market is only open on Saturdays and Sundays. You can take the Bangkok Subway to Chatuchak/Jatujak park.
