Bangkok is the single most populated city in Thailand and it is a mixture of vibrant cultures as bright as any other capitol city. There are many interesting and enjoyable attractions for tourists to the country. We’ll discuss just a few of the most exciting and interesting ones.
Any visitor to Bankok must visit the Grand Palace and the Old City. The decadent architecture and ornamentation was designed several hundred years ago by Thai royalty to demonstrate the wealth and richness of the country. It’s a great place to learn about the history of Thailand and of Bangkok. You can learn about traditional Thai culture and history while enjoying the magnificent gardens and temples, too!
Next you’ll want to appreciate the modern Thailand. Go down along the river and check out the business districts. You’ll see amazing skyscrapers of all shapes and colors, not to mention one of the most ornate temples in all of Asia. The Temple of Dawn is probably the most recognizable building on the Bangkok skyline, and it is certainly worth paying 50 baht for a tour of.
Finally you’ve got to visit some of the famous Thai floating markets. These are just like traditional city farm markets, but all the shops are boats that have tied up against the water’s edge. These are a must see for any visitor to Bangkok, especially if it’s your first time. Have some made-to-order fresh seafood and enjoy people watching as the busy vendors make their pitches to other visitors and locals alike. You won’t want to miss out on this very special experience.
