Underneath all the chaos, the city of Bangkok is packed with fun things to do and see. As the fastest growing city in the world, you won’t be at a loss with what you want to do.

Night Market

Bangkok has several night markets if you’re into that kind of thing, a popular one being Talat Rot Fai Market, the original one is far from the city, but they recently opened a new one that’s easier to reach. The highlight of this market is the cool food trucks and mobile bars and pubs, you’ll also find unique stuff like vintage retro clothes, vinyl, and antiques.

Vibrant and famous Chinatown is a must visit, with surprises at every turn that you take. When the sun sets, it is here where you’ll find the most deliciously authentic Thai street food. Get lost among the tiny alleyways, centuries-old temples and the hectic markets, drop by at the Flower Market that is also located close by!

Jim Thompson House

6.5 kilometres from Avani Hotels & Resorts, and any other similar hotel in Asoke, you’ll find the Jim Thompson House. Sort of like a museum, this is an excellent break from all the shopping. Located close to Siam square, Jim Thompson is the man that made Thai silk famous globally.

Golden Mountain Temple

Also known as Wat Saket, you get to see the Bangkok skyline from here. The walk up to the temple takes about 25-minutes but the view from the top is well worth the 344 steps!
