Fun for the entire family!

Found about an hour or so away from Bangkok is Safari World Open Zoo and the Marine World. The park consists of two parts namely the marine world and the safari park. If you are based in a Bangkok Siam hotel including such options as Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel you can enjoy a great day-trip to this attraction.

Safari at the park

An exhilarating 45-minute experience, the park offers a great chance to enjoy every bit of adventure stretched throughout its 8 km. You can also choose to enjoy the ride in your own vehicle with a coach from the park.

Highlights of the safari

Apart from the great chance to witness rare and endangered species of wildlife, the lucky ones on safari can also capture a few pictures of the tiger and lion feeding show.

Do not miss the rest of the park!

The park also features an incredible sea lion show, a dolphin show and a bird show. Don’t forget to let the kids enjoy the other wow-factors of the park such as the jungle walk. The Orang-utan Boxing show and the Hollywood Cowboy Stunt Show are also thrilling for the young ones.

The Best Street Food Dishes in Bangkok – Streets and Stalls

Bangkok, Thailand has some of the best street food stalls in the country and is simply a must visit if you are a foodie.

The street food in Bangkok is just like its ambience, hot, exciting and sometimes overwhelming. Dining in Bangkok lets you see the luxurious food and no trip is complete if you haven’t seen the other side of it, the street foods. For example, if you are staying at the AVANI Atrium Bangkok, you’d get to sample the authentic food in the hotel restaurant itself, but when you step out, the same food tastes completely different at a street stall.

Chinatown

The first thing that comes to anyone’s mind when you say street food, Chinatown is also known as Yaowarat among the locals. From grilled meat to the authentic Thai style sukiyaki, you can get everything under the sun here, literally.

Old Town

Also known as Banglamphu, this place is a hidden treasure of ancient Thai street food; the dishes you get here are unique and can be found nowhere else in Thailand. The vendors on this street have been in business for decades, with the stalls being passed down through generations and the vibe you get at this place is surreal.

Venice of the East: Bangkok and its River – The River of Kings

It’ll come as no surprise that the Mae Nam Chao Phraya is known as the Venice of the East, as not only is it one of the most beautiful waterways in the country, but still acts as a popular trade route that’s still in use. Along with merchants and vendors still using the river and khlongs as a trade route, you can also go on a river cruise. Bangkok has a number of attractions dotted on the banks of this river and a cruise organized by providers such as Anantara Cruises, Thailand is the ideal way to look at these attractions. Along the river, you’ll be able to see attractions such as Wat Arun, Grand Palace, Wat Phra Kaew as well as Wat Pho.

The Chao Phraya River got its nickname Venice of the East as a number of khlongs, both natural and manmade; started connecting various parts of the city which then play a major role in contributing to the local’s lives and changed the cityscape. The Chao Phraya river stems from the north of the country where the Wang, Ping, Nan and Yom rivers meet at the Paknam Pho District, which then flows towards the south of the country connecting Chai Nat, Ayutthaya, Pathum Thani, Nonthaburi, Bangkok to name a few, before meeting with the Gulf of Thailand.

Today, the river plays an important role in acting as a transport route for the shipment of teak and rice to the city of Bangkok. The banks are often seen crowded with local markets, manned by locals who sell fresh fruits and vegetables – some have even set up their houses on the river banks. The river has been regarded as the bloodline of the local people since for the longest time! The Chao Phraya River plays a significant role in the vibrant festivals of the country such as Loy Krathong and Songkran.
