A Fun-Filled Journey
Planning to visit the most populous city in Thailand? Experience action in every corner of Bangkok for a vacation that lives with you for years to come. Here are some useful tips for first-timers in Bangkok to savour their maiden visit to the city.
Why Choose Bangkok?
Bangkok offers an all-in-one vacation to tourists, from luxury and budget shopping to visiting sites of historical and cultural importance. The city is a hub for the history geek and the fashionista. Most Bangkok resorts are located within close proximity to the frequently visited places in the city, and therefore will be an easy ride to reach the next site on your agenda from your lodging at Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort. Transportation is not the only positivity of a vacation in Bangkok, as your favourite dining spots are only a stone’s throw away from the hotel.
Sightseeing in the City
Bangkok is a city brimming with attractions of cultural and historical importance. Each site can be traced back to tales from decades and centuries ago, signifying their historical and religious aspects. Some of the must-see sites in the city are Wat Arun, The Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Jim Thompson’s House, and the Bangkok Riverside.
A Shopper’s Paradise
It is no secret that Bangkok is a shopper’s paradise. From designer fashion to budget shopping, the city hosts a wide array of shopping complexes, malls and boutiques to align with your budget. If you fancy shopping at Bangkok’s renowned malls, pay visits to the Siam Paragon, the MBK Centre, Central World and Central Embassy. However, if some budget shopping is where your heart lies, find your way to the floating and outdoor markets that offer your favourite knickknacks, souvenirs and accessories.
Foodie Dreams Come True
Bangkok is a city that offers a 360-degree experience to its visitors, making a tour of the city rather worthwhile. Therefore, all first timers must pay visits to the high-end restaurants as well as to the city’s night markets of sizzling street food that are highly popular among the locals and tourists. If you wish to have your fair share of authentic Thai food, trying out some delicious, affordable street food is what we recommend.
