Get out on a private tour (don’t do the group ones as everything takes so much longer!) and go see the floating markets. Grab some noodles off the side of the boat for a breakfast treat. On the way back to Bangkok go via the train track markets. It’s a market that is set on train tracks and every 30 mins a train comes by and they pull the market back in 60 seconds.
Street food is utterly delicious in Bangkok - and also, everywhere! Pull up a plastic stool and treat yourself to Thai delights.
Some incredible luxury and unique shopping to be done in Bangkok. Many malls around Siam Square where you can get something a little different to take home, or just an amazing deal at one of your favourite shops.
Find a rooftop (The Lebua State, the top of Muse Hotel or the top of Banyan Tree hotel) and then do we really need to tell you this bit….. grab a drink! It’s been a long and hard day, you deserve it.
Jet across town in a tuk-tuk and hit up the local nightlife. Asiatique is a good spot for numerous dining and drinking establishments. Local craft makers and designers set up their stalls there where there are deals a-plenty. And of course, foot massages are available for those with weary feet!
Hop on over to one of the many massage parlours in the city. They are cheap, and possibly one of the best massages you will ever have. Tip: many like the air-con but mixed with the body oils is a freezing combination so be sure to ask them to turn the heat up! If you aren’t fussed on a full body Thai massage then there are plenty of other treats in the forms of manis, pedis, foot massages and other treatments! And if you’re sunburnt then indulge in an aloe vera massage
Well this one is strictly for late night partygoers. Visit Patpong where you will be able to witness a ping pong show. Yes, it is exactly what you’ve heard about! It’s just a bit of fun, but be sure to be respectful when visiting here.
Head down to the river and jump on a long tail boat (private tours are the best) and should cost around 800 baht per boat. They go through the waterways that pass through the locals houses and you can see the way they live as they go about their day - cooking, cleaning, relaxing. It’s a fantastic look at the local Bangkok residents lives.
