Every weekend, Bangkok’s klongs come alive. The klongs or canals are the hub of most morning activities as that’s where the floating markets are held. Floating markets are nothing but markets on water. People come flocking in on their canoes ready to sell their produce which include fresh foods and cooked edibles that encompass Thailand’s local cuisine. Grilled meat and desserts are widely sold and loved. The floating markets are one of the best places where you can experience some local culture.

Visit: Amphawa, Damnoen Saduak, Khlong Lat Mayom.

4. Parks:

Although Bangkok is notorious for traffic and pollution, it does enjoy a fair share of parks interspersed between prime areas of the city. All we see are tall buildings and shopping malls and food stalls; dig a little deeper and there are quite a few stunning green spaces that form the perfect juxtaposition. Most of the parks have a riveting story behind its creation that is neatly weaved into how the city has shaped over the years. Not only do they provide a respite for the locals, but also for the weary tourist!

Visit: Lumpini Park, Rama IX Park, Chatuchak Park.

5. Shopping & Nightlife:

There’s no doubt that Bangkok does provide a wholesome holiday. After all the sightseeing, what better place to wind down than at a local watering hole! Try some Laotian beer and enjoy either a musical performance or a show to go with the alcohol. Khao San Road is known for its vibrancy after hours, so head on down after a hard day’s work of sightseeing.

While some prefer to sit in a pub and drink, some turn to retail therapy. Bangkok has long since enjoyed the reputation of providing the ultimate haven for crazy shoppers. The malls and street markets are lined with merchandise just waiting to be purchased. There’s nothing that the retail market of Thailand doesn’t have.

Visit: MBK Mall, Khao San Road Market, Chinatown.

If you’re not pressed for time, another option would be to take short day trips from Bangkok. Bangkok serves as the perfect base for short getaways to Ayutthaya or the Khao Yai National Park. There’s indeed a lot to see in Bangkok, so plan your trip keeping your days, time and money in mind!
