Exploring Bangkok in January
A Traveller’s Dream Come True
Bangkok is a vibrant and exciting city to visit at any time of year, but January is a particularly good time to go. The weather is dry and pleasant, and the city is filled with fun activities and events. Here are three things that you should consider adding to your bucket list when visiting Bangkok in January:
Visit the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew
The Grand Palace is a must-see for any visitor to the city. It is also home to Wat Phra Kaew, that’s famously known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. The complex is adorned with intricate carvings, gilded walls, and colourful mosaics. You can easily take the BTS Skytrain from your Bangkok hotel in Sukhumvit. If you’re looking for places to stay, consider Gardina Asoke Sukhumvit 16.
Take a boat ride along the Chao Phraya River
A boat ride along the Chao Phraya River is a great way to see Bangkok from a different angle. You can take a ferry from a few points along the river, or you can take a private boat tour. There are attractions down the river such as Wat Arun and Wat Pho, two famous temples in Bangkok.
Enjoy the Chatuchak Weekend Market
If you love shopping, then the Chatuchak Weekend Market is a must-visit. This massive market has more than 8000 stalls selling everything from clothes and accessories to home decor and souvenirs. It’s a great place to find unique and affordable items, and it’s also a great way to experience local culture and interact with friendly locals.
