Considering a visit to the popular Bangkok city any time soon? Covering the basics of travelling to a foreign land is always a good idea and with this brief guide of the most important things you should know before heading there will be extremely beneficial!
Cover upThailand, and Bangkok in particular is swarming with Wats and other religious places of worship which serve as popular places of tourism, such as the Grand Palace, Wat Arun, Wat Phraw Kaew and many others, require visitors to dress modestly – which means covering up! Short and sleeveless attire are not permitted.
Sort your accommodationOne of the most important things to note while in Bangkok. Hotel apartment options are quite numbered, but during peak season, these tend to fill up rather fast. Therefore, it’s always best to pre book your accommodation, especially if it’s at properties like Citadines Sukhumvit 16 Bangkok.
Travel optionsThere are numerous ways to travel around the city and the country, ranging from tuk tuks, bikes, boat, taxis, buses and the subway. Don’t forget to agree on a price before getting in to your method of transport, as tuk tuks, in particular, are known to scam tourists!
Avoid Animal TourismElephant trekking, elephant yoga and even elephant begging are notoriously popular in Thailand, especially in main cities like Bangkok. Elephants are poked, proded, tied and beaten until they are learn to have a human ride them! Avoid entertainment and tourism options which require the animal to perform or act in a way that is unnatural.
