Bangkok

Known as Bangkok to tourists and Krungthep (the City of Angels) to Thais, the city has become one of the most popular tourist destinations. The increasing number of visitors each year proves that the city is a travel hotspot for tourists. At first sight, you may feel overwhelmed by Bangkok’s density of 10 million inhabitants, large size, and abundance of attractions.

While the immensity of the city and its busy streets can seem intimidating, those who spend some time in Bangkok quickly fall in love with the city’s charm, cultural significance, and wonderful attractions, such as delicately adorned temples, which highlight Thailand’s deep connection with Buddhism, and modern shopping malls.

Over the past years, the Grand Palace has become a noteworthy attraction that cannot be missed.

The golden palace seems to shimmer in the nightlight among beautiful, renowned temples nearby, such as Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Arun, and Wat Pho. Located in the heart of Bangkok’s Rattanakosin Island, the palace and temples are great places to visit as you will have the chance to learn about Thailand’s complex history, rich cultures, and beliefs.

Once you are in Bangkok, you should definitely take a trip to the National Museum, Suan Pakkad Palace, and Vimanmek Mansion; they are the best places to continue learning about Thailand through observing priceless artifacts and fine art pieces.

If you want to spend some time shopping for yourself or your family and friends then Bangkok would be perfect for you! The city has luxury shopping centers as well as flea markets that you can easily go to, using the Metropolitan Rapid Transit (MRT) or Bangkok mass Transit System (BTS), which are cheap, air-conditioned, and convenient as these transport systems link hotels to large shopping centers.

Our recommendations for shopping malls include Emquartier, IconSiam, Siam Paragon, and CentralWorld.

Our top picks for outdoor markets include Chatuchak Weekend Market, Sampeng Market, and Pahurat Textile Market.

Of course, no Thailand holiday is complete without experiencing Thailand’s vibrant nightlife.

Whether, the purpose of your Thailand holiday is to immerse yourself in Thailand’s unique Culture or simply to splurge in Bangkok shopping malls, when you travel to Bangkok you are guaranteed a fascinating experience of both old-world charm and modern convenience and luxury.
