Bangkok being the capital of Thailand is not just the urban city it appears to be. In fact, there are hidden historical sites and loads to do in this great city of Bangkok. Here’s how to spend your time in the city without putting much pressure on your wallet.
Flights and lodging
Getting to Bangkok is quite easy especially when there are plenty of flight and hotel packages that are available for most of the year. It is much easier and less expensive to go through travel agencies when it comes to going easy on the money. Good accommodation is available, for example, AVANI Riverside Bangkok Hotel which is a hotel in Riverside Bangkok and many more affordable joints.
Sure, taking a ride in the local tuk-tuk is definitely an experience worth having, however, for tourists to frequently use this mode of transport in Bangkok too often would end up in a waste since the meters are not switched on for foreigners. Instead, it is advisable to use apps like Uber and Grab for safe travelling at a fair price. The MRT subway system is the cheapest option and easy to navigate as well.
This is certainly an experience you cannot forego when in Bangkok! Walking down the street in the evening, one will be engulfed in the aroma of mouth-watering food form the small street food boutiques that line the roads on either side. Food in these places are pretty cheap and you are sure to get a tasty meal that will fill you up good!
Places to see
There are many amazing landmarks that you simply cannot miss out on! Make sure to visit Wat Pho which is the magnificent temple that is home to the colossal statue of the reclining Buddha! Also, don’t forget the Wat Arun temple as well. Visit the Chatuchak weekend market and find many items that you might want to take home as souvenirs.
