Where to Stay

Before going into what to do, you need to settle on where to be based. When it comes to accommodation, it’s best to look for something centrally located so that you can easily access all the top tourist attractions; an ideal option would be to stay in areas like Sathorn. Apartments can be found here at properties like Oakwood Hotel & Residence Bangkok which offer living spaces with modern comforts and Wi-Fi; some even have kitchens which add to the convenience along with access to onsite leisure and business amenities. The ideal property should be within walking distance of a BTS Skytrain station too.

Sightseeing Itinerary

There’s plenty to see on your three days in the Thai capital so plan your itinerary carefully. The 18th-century Grand Palace is arguably the most famous tourist attraction in Bangkok and houses the famed Temple of the Emerald Buddha along with captivating buildings, statues and more. On your city tour, you can also visit the Temple of the Reclining Buddha and by taking a Chao Phraya River cruise, view the Temple of Dawn too. Other key sites include the Jim Thompson House, National Gallery, SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World and Chinatown, while Lumpini Park is a great spot to unwind.

Where to Shop

Bangkok is a shopper’s paradise, and there are lots of places to find great deals on clothes, souvenirs, and more on your three-day adventure. For modern shopping experiences, you can head to some of the popular malls; these include the stunning ICONSIAM which has hundreds of shops, long-time favourites such as Siam Paragon and MBK and the modern outdoor night market known as Asiatique The Riverfront. For more local shopping escapades, you can head to the sprawling Chatuchak Weekend Market depending on when you’re visiting.

Happening Nightlife

Bangkok’s nightlife is world-famous, and there are plenty of places to party and have fun till the wee hours of the morning! A popular haunt amongst foreign travellers including backpackers would be Khao San Road which is packed with bars, restaurants, and street vendors. Another nightlife hotspot is Sukhumvit Road where you can dance the night away at clubs like the Sing Sing Theater and Beam Nightclub. Don’t forget to also make time to head to the Sukhumvit Street Market at night where you will find lots of stalls and street food.
