There must be a good reason why Thailand’s capital remains on the top of annual lists of the world’s most visited cities. Could it be because of the local cuisine tourists savor? Does it have something to do with the outstanding tourism service and Thai hospitality? Or is it likely that the Land of Smiles hooks visitors with an encompassing sense of welcome?

The City of Angels, as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon—the Thai name for Bangkok—means, is everything a cosmopolitan metropolis could be. Occupying 1,568 square kilometers, it’s a similar size to London, one of its main rivals in the world’s most visited cities index. Bangkok has a population of over ten million, while over 16 million people live within the Bangkok Metropolitan Region, according to the 2020-2021 census.

As a tourist destination, Bangkok never fails to show off its multifaceted identity. It is blessed with historical and cultural heritage while oozing cool street vibes that have promoted its status firmly on the world map.

With the Chao Phraya River running through it, Bangkok’s riverside life has long been an absolute allure. Rattanakosin Island and old towns are regular magnets, drawing millions of visitors with rich old-charm architecture. Many newly opened bars and street food intensify Bangkok as an incredibly diverse destination that leaves tourists and residents spoiled for choice. Repeat visitors are often surprised they’ll have new things to discover day and night. The shopping experience in Bangkok, with world-renowned department stores and street markets, is wildly fun.

Bangkok is an Asian aviation hub, thanks to its perfect geographical location. Suvarnabhumi Airport was expanded to accommodate up to 40 million additional passengers a year. There is a long-term plan to push the airport’s handling capacity up to 150 million passengers per year, with 120 flights an hour by 2030. This expansion will make Bangkok easily accessible and capable of providing convenient connections across Asia and the world. From here, you can connect to anywhere in Thailand as your travel plan to explore the country continues.

Founded in 1782, the City of Angels was added to the list of Unesco Creative Cities in 2019 as a city of design. With an average temperature of 28.1 °C, it welcomes visitors year-round. It has long been hailed as one of the best places for the LGBTQ community. It won a multitude of tourism accolades and awards, with about 22.7 million international visitors in 2019. Bangkok guarantees to amaze visitors with new tourism areas, maintaining its high-profile as one of the world’s most visited cities.

Getting Around Bangkok

Like all big cities, Bangkok has different modes of transport. The best way to get around the inner city is by the sky train, locally known as BTS, and the underground train, better known as MRT. These two public transport systems operate from 6 am until midnight. Their ever-expanding service covers main spots in inner Bangkok, its suburbs, and outlying areas in nearby provinces. BTS’s one-day pass costs 140 baht ($4.13 USD).

The metered-taxi rate starts at 35 baht ($1.03 USD), and Bangkok’s taxi remains one of the world’s cheapest. Tourists love to try the tuk-tuk service at least once. Make sure you negotiate the price first and take it for shorter trips.

For those planning to enjoy the Chao Phraya River, there are many options available. Boats and ferries are a convenient way to get around Bangkok—sometimes referred to as the Venice of the East—thanks to a system of canals.

The Chao Phraya Express Boat Company operates the river ferry. Check their website to study the schedule and map. What looks intimidating at first will turn out to be a piece of cake.

For those with a time-limited stay, you can take the Tourist Boat, one of the most popular services, to learn about the history behind the City of Angels. The guided tour is for the rides between Thaksin Bridge and Phra Athit Pier. Each trip costs 40 baht ($1.18 USD), or you can buy the all-day pass for 150 baht ($4.43 USD). The boat service runs between 6 am – 7 pm. 

THINGS TO DO IN BANGKOK

Unlimited Shopping At Chatuchak Weekend Market 

The epitome of fantastic shopping, this weekend market has almost everything you could want. Known as JJ to locals, it’s one of the largest outdoor markets globally, with 15,000 stalls to peruse. Everything is for sale in this well-organized market. Goods are arranged by type, from clothing, accessories, home décor, books, and plants. You can head to the section you prefer if you have already studied the market map or go wherever your casual walk leads. Don’t mind it if you get lost; even locals do.

The weekend market is open from 10am – 9pm, and can be reached via the Skytrain at Mo Chit Station. If you take the metro, you can get off at either Kamphaeng Phet or Chatuchak stations, depending on which part of the market you want to enter.

A heaven for shoppers, the market is not for those dreading the sunlight and hot weather. However, there are some wonderful cafés to cool down in during and after shopping.

Sense Aroma in section 19, soi 6 serves organic coffee made with locally grown beans from Lampang. 

Wantong Café in section 26, soi 1/4 has some good-tasting coffee, tea, soda, and tempting Thai desserts.

Bustling Chinatown

From morning until the early hours, Bangkok’s Chinatown stays alert and dynamic. The market lanes overflow with busy glittery gold shops during the day. Buddhist monasteries (including Wat Trimit with the world’s largest gold Buddha Statue and Wat Mangkon Kamalawat –Bangkok’s most important and largest Chinese-Buddhist temple) and Daoist temples make the area ideal for a pilgrimage stroll. Sampeng Lane, the original high street of Chinatown when the Chinese community first settled in the Thai capital, is a collection of clustered shops with everything for sale. New shops and bars add to the neighborhood. By day, there are different neighborhood sections to explore, thanks to the new underground train service making it easier to get around. At night, bring your appetite to Yaowarat Road, for it is a street food heaven on earth. Offerings include seafood, dim sum, Pad Thai, home-made ice cream, and durian, to name a few. Your dining exploration couldn’t get any more adventurous and fun. Bon Appetit!

To reach Chinatown, take the MRT to the Wat Mangkon MRT Station. It is about a five-minute walk to Yaowarat Road. You can opt to get off at Hua Lampong Station if you want to visit Wat Trimit first. The temple is open daily from 8am to 5pm. Call +66 89 002 2700.

Breathtaking Bang Kachao, The Green Lung of Bangkok

While Bangkok has some parks for visitors to enjoy, on the edge of the capital Bang Kachao feels like a breath of fresh air.

This plot of lush land located in the Phra Pradaeng District is referred to as the ‘green lung’ of Bangkok. It has gained recognition as a weekend getaway in the city.

The local Bang Nam Phueng market is a real attraction for any foodies. It also has plenty of affordable goods to choose from while cycling enthusiasts will enjoy biking through the jungle on the well-paved winding trails. Bike rental is 20 Baht, and there are several Instagrammable spots for those fond of selfies. Sri Nakhon Khuean Khan Park and Botanical Garden (+66 2 461 0972) is a must-visit. This tranquil city park features green space, walking paths, a spectacular lake, and a bird viewing platform.

Feel like spending more time here than half a day? Homestays can provide you with an ideal escape into this lush verdant world. The market is open on weekends and holidays, while Bang Kachao is open daily. Avoid the weekend crowds if possible. 

Baan Makham is a homestay and a restaurant whose houses are often fully booked during the weekends. 

Hidden Woods (+6690 974 8234) is a riverside café in a garden setting. The industrial design of the main buildings and other structures makes it one of the most visited spots aside from the market and the botanical garden. It’s open 10.30 am – 6pm Thursday to Sunday with delicious coffee. 

Bangkok Tree House (+6682 995 1150) is open daily from 9am – 8pm. Thanks to its location near the pier, this green hotel and organic restaurant is one of the most popular stops for cyclists.

Bang Kachao (+6692 229 3549) can be reached by car from Bangkok using Industrial Ring Road to cross Bhumibol 1 Bridge to Soi Songtham and Petchahueng Road. Those preferring public transport can take the Skytrain to Bang Na Station. Take a motorcycle taxi to Wat Bang Na Nok and take the ferry across the Chao Phraya to Bang Kachao.

Flower Fever @ Flower Market & Floral Museum

Locally known as Pak Khlong Talad, Bangkok’s 24-hour flower market is one of the best places in the capital to shop. This is where locals come to buy flowers and plant accessories for all occasions from Valentine’s Day, Commencement Day, funerals to weddings, parties, and household decorations.

The flower market has a new location, but the original one still attracts visitors thanks to its old town location. Other neighborhood spots to go flower shopping include the area along Chakkrapetch Road and Thai Agricultural Promotion Market with a cluster of shops selling different types of floral species. Yodpiman Market houses stalls selling decorative flowers used to make garlands and decorative items for special occasions like an ordination ceremony. Apart from the flower shops, Yodpiman River Walk (http://www.yodpimanriverwalk.com/home-en/) allows you to enjoy the river view, especially during the sunset.

While here, don’t miss Napasorn Flower Café (+662 222 6895, open daily 10am – 10pm), which has become a magnet like the market itself. Downstairs is the flower shop, providing all kinds of services. Upstairs is a beautiful café for you to chill out in with some cakes and coffee.

The market is within walking distance from Sanamchai Metro Station. You can catch an express boat (either with a blue or orange flag) from Saphan Taksin BTS Station and get off at Pak Khlong Talad Pier or Yodpiman Pier.

The Museum of Floral Culture doesn’t offer fresh flowers. Instead, it’s an exciting learning center designed to educate you regarding flowers of different cultures. Created by renowned floral artist Sakul Intakul and opened in 2012, it features unique floral cultures from civilizations across Asia. Visitors get to see some rare decorative items used in Thai palaces in the old days. The museum is in a 100-year-old teak mansion built during the reign of King Rama VI. Its colonial architecture is an impeccably-landscaped Thai-meets-Zen-style garden setting. The tea and dessert set after the tour is refreshing.

The museum is on Samsen Road (Soi 28) in the quiet residential area of Dusit district. It’s open daily from 10am – 6pm, and admission is 150 Baht. Each tour takes one hour. Call +662 669 3633 for further information or send an email to info@floralmuseum.com. Log on to www.floralmuseum.com for more details.

Surveying Old Capital, Thonburi

Before Bangkok, Thonburi, on the west side of the Chao Phraya River, briefly served as Siam’s capital. It was merged with Phra Nakhon on the east side in 1971 into what we currently call Bangkok.

Thonburi district with Khlong San is a fascinating neighborhood that has emerged as a new location worth spending half or a day tour. Bangkok’s old town is known to feature lesser-known temples and hidden gem attractions, even unknown to some of the capital’s residents. Check out Wat Pichaiyat. This temple, built in the reign of King Rama III, is striking with Sino-Thai architecture. Its main stupa houses four Buddha statues facing four different directions. The temple is on Prachatipok Road and open daily from 8am – 6pm (+662 861 4319, +662 438 4442).

Not far from the monastery is Princess Mother Memorial Park. (+662 439 0902), It was built under the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s royal initiative to preserve the old house his beloved mother used to reside as a kid. The area is now a museum displaying the works of Princess Mother of King Rama 9 and a shady park perfect for visitors to cool off in as they explore the neighborhood. The park is open daily from 6am – 6pm, while the museum’s opening hours are 8.30am – 4.30pm.

Opened on November 2, 2017, Lhong 1919 has become a new landmark on Thonburi riverbank. The 19th-century Chinese mansion transformed from an old port in the reign of King Rama IV into a mixed-use complex with restaurants, stores, and the over 180-year-old Mazu shrine where Chinese-Thais come to pay homage. Good ambiance and modern-day facilities turn this once-forgotten area into a new spot to chill out. It’s open daily from 8am – 10pm. Call +6691 187 1919 or log on to www.lhong1919.com for information. Lhong 1919 has a pier meaning you can take a boat from anywhere, like Tha Phra Arthit pier or BTS Taksin pier, along the Chao Phraya River. A free shuttle boat from Icon Siam is another excellent choice.

Exploring Multi-Cultural Kadichin Neighborhood

In Thonburi, there are hidden gems Bangkok residents are unfamiliar with. The Kudichin neighborhood stands out as uniquely multi-cultural. It has long served as a settlement for Buddhists, Christians, and Muslims alike. The area comprises six communities in the Wat Kalya Sub-district.

The Portuguese formed this community who helped King Taksin fight the wars after being rewarded with land plots. The riverside Santa Cruz Church is a reminder of the community’s history. The Kadichin settlement dates back to Ayutthaya. It has a rich and cultural history that serves as an example of how Bangkok tries hard to balance its past glory and modernization.

Other attractions aside from the church include Wat Kalyanamit Mahaworavihara, known among local Chinese-Thais as Sam Po Kong or Sam Po Hut Kong. The Thai-style Bang Luang Mosque and Kian Un Keng Shrine highlight multiculturalism at its best. Try Khanom Farang Kudichin or the soft cake influenced by Portuguese desserts at the end of the tour. Baan Kudichin is a privately-run museum chronicling the Siam Portuguese history and is also worth checking out (baankudichinmuseum.com). Call +6681 772 5184.

The Santa Crus Church is across the river from Yodpiman River Walk. Take an express boat (with blue flags on the pier and each boat) from anywhere along the Chao Phraya to Yodpiman pier. It costs 40 Baht per trip. The ferry service at Yodpiman to Wat Kalyanamit pier costs 5 Baht. If you want to see the Kadichin Neighborhood and the flower market area on the same day, go to the former in the early afternoon and return to Yodpiman to explore the market later on.

Craft Beer Tasting in the Mon Community on Koh Kret 

In Nonthaburi province, Koh Kret has long been an ideal weekend getaway for the people of Bangkok. Visitors can spend half or a whole day on the island community away from the capital city’s bustling commotion.

Thanks to its location close to Bangkok, Koh Kret is also a popular spot for locals as they bid a final farewell to their loved ones. They scatter the deceased’s ashes or drop the whole ash pot in the middle of the river. Thailand took the ‘loy ankhan’ ritual through Hinduism from India. Locals there perform funerals by the sacred Ganges and later spread their loved ones’ ashes into the river, sending them onto the next reincarnation journey. With tourism that highlights the community-based value, Koh Kret has gained recognition as a cool place worth checking out and recently became a popular spot for international visitors.

Koh Kret formed after a canal was dug in 1722 to shorten the river route to Ayutthaya. From a civilization that originated in southern Myanmar, the Mon then settled on it. Today, most of the people living in Koh Kret are Mon descendants best known for their pottery work.

Aside from that, temples like Wat Poramaiyikawat Worawihan and Wat Sala Kun are worth visiting. The former houses an important Buddha statue and is famous for the over 200-year old leaning pagoda visible from a distance. The latter has a genuinely stunning colorful exterior constructed of tiles.

Visitors to the island on Saturdays and Sundays will find the Weekend Market irresistible with various products, souvenirs, and foods. Remember, you’re in the Mon community and visit the Mon Cultural Center, which showcases an abundance of Mon-style clay pottery.

With the six-kilometer-long main path around the island making it easy to explore by bicycle, visitors to the tiny island often rent one at the main piers for about 50 baht a day. After hours of biking around, we recommend you to call it a day only with craft beers served at Chit Beer.

The local microbrewery Chit Beer is only open on weekends from 12pm-9pm. It is usually crowded from late afternoon and offers several bottled craft ales and five to eight different beers on draft, including Toob Tub IPA 6.2% and Fourteen Again Session. The owner also runs a brewing academy where interested groups of people learn and brew their own beer. Give it a try, and you’ll see ‘It’s good chit’ as its slogan goes. Call +6689 799 1123 or check out their Facebook page.

To cross over to Ko Kret, take a ferry service at Wat Sanam, which costs 3 baht. Please bear in mind the ferry service stops around 9pm.

Michelin-Star Dining Delight

Bangkok has long served as a paradise for food lovers. Fine dining at five-star hotels will leave you spoiled for choice while searching for the best roadside stalls and restaurants is a never-ending journey.

The gourmet appeal has multiplied following its inclusion in the renowned Michelin Guide in 2018, with 52 restaurants receiving star and Bib Gourmand status. The latest edition for 2020 features five 2-star and 24 1-star restaurants, along with numerous recommended eateries.

Jay Fai

Long before she became a Michelin star chef, Supinya Jansuta, also known as Jay Fai, cooked Lad Na or fried noodles in gravy, rice with crab meat and basil, and other delicious dishes.

This roadside eatery on Maha Chai Road, better known locally as Jay Fai Pratu Pee (the ghost gate), has been frequented by local epicures. They know they will get flavorful, satisfying food in return for a hefty price similar to fine dining in a 5-star restaurant. No one can deny the tastiness she offers, though. With a Michelin star under her belt and a huge fan base of locals and tourists, you need to book a table in advance to get a chance to try her signature crab meat omelet. Call +6692 724 9633. The restaurant is open from 1.30pm – 12am and closed on Sundays and Mondays.

Methavalai Sorndaeng

By its look, Methavalai Sorndaeng appears to be an extended family’s favorite restaurant in a TV soap telling the story of Bangkok in the 1960s. Located on the historic Ratchadamnoen Road, this classic Thai restaurant has been in the business for over six decades. It remains a favorite place for those fond of traditional Thai cuisine strictly cooked as instructed in original recipes. A live band playing Thai, Chinese, and international contemporary music is a highlight dating back decades. The restaurant offers a vast array of local dishes in a classic, standard restaurant ambiance. Try hors d’oeuvre Set A to sample fish cake, stuffed tofu skin, crispy noodle, and kratong thong or assorted shrimp, corn, and potato in a golden crispy pastry cup.

Seeing the City of Angels in Different Perspectives

New approaches to exploring Bangkok make it fun for first-time and repeat visitors to roam around in the capital city. Two companies offer new excitements and a little more adventurous means for those ready for challenges.

An innovative Dutchman Co van Kessel founded the company using his name more than 30 years ago and became a trailblazing operator whose bike tour programs have been sought after by equally adventurous travelers. 

One of the original programs is the Co Combo 5-Hour Bicycle/Boat Tour, priced 1,850 baht from 7am to 1pm covering 15 kilometers. It includes frenetic Chinatown and a quiet green plantation neighborhood, plus an exploration of the ‘Venice of the East,’ as Bangkok is often referred to, by a long-tailed boat.

Call +668 433 54078.

Pub Crawl & Bar Hopping Fun

For nightlife enthusiasts and tipplers, you can bet Thailand’s metropolis will make bar-hopping a fun-filled experience. 

Patpong, Thonglor, and Khao San have alluring small pubs scattered around old town areas, which have become trendier and hipper meeting places for bar patrons.

There have been drastic changes in different neighborhoods of the dynamic city of Bangkok. Chinatown, especially, has undergone a facelift over the last five years, with new pubs emerging and old ones renovated to welcome young bar-goers and old clients. There’s no better place like Soi Nana, a happening bar-hopping destination.

Wallflowers Upstairs, the rooftop bar above the flower shop One Day Wallflowers, has become a chic place to sip and chill out. The first rooftop bar in Yaowarat’s Soi Nana serves wine, cocktail, beers, and other drinks in a garden-like setting worth being in your photo’s background. Opening Hours: Thu – Sun 6pm-midnight Telephone: +669-4661-7997

In the same neighborhood lies another chic bar eye-catching with its Chinese-themed decoration. Simple Neon Chinese letters ooze Hong Kong coolness, which transforms Ba Hao into a hip hang-out venue. Try their signature cocktails like Opium and Five Rivers and enjoy the night out in a distinguished ambiance. Opening hours: Tue-Sun 6pm – midnight Telephone: +6664 635 1989. Website.

Opened in 2015, Tep Bar has since become a hidden gem waiting to be discovered by casual drinkers. Perfect mood lighting accentuates the bar’s ambiance.

You can find a good line of that here, together with cocktails and beers. There are live music performances, as well. Opening Hours: Tue-Thu 5pm-midnight; Sun 5pm-midnight; Fri-Sat 5pm-1am Telephone: +6698 467 2944
