Planning to try experience the best of Bangkok in just one day? Well, the good news is that such a whirlwind tour is possible! Here’s a guide of a way to plan your day in the Thai capital.
A Grand Start
There’s no grander start than by visiting the iconic Grand Palace. This stunning complex was once home to the Kings of Siam and is easy to reach from riverside properties including those of Chatrium Hotels & Residences. Here you will also find the famed Temple of the Emerald Buddha or Wat Phra Kaew.
Next, head two well-known temples in Bangkok; the stunning Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun) and the Temple of the Reclining Buddha (Wat Po) are truly wondrous sites, steeped in history and rich traditions.
When Hunger Strikes
A foodie experience is a quintessential part of a city tour and some of the best restaurants in Bangkok are not only at hotels, but those that are considered street-side eateries. Tom Yum Goong, Pad Thai, Moo Ping and coconut ice cream are a few choice dishes to try.
Time for Retail Therapy
There are malls galore in Bangkok for a shopping spree; Siam Paragon, MBK and Siam Discovery to name but a few! For something different try visit the Chatuchak Weekend Market where bargaining is the name of the game.
For Party People
As night falls enjoy drinks at a rooftop bar and follow that up with some club hopping; LEVELS Club & Lounge, The Club at KOI and Live RCA Bangkok are amongst the clubs where you can dance the night away!
