Did Someone Say “Party” in Bangkok?
If you only have 5 days of spring break to work with, you’re going to want to make the most of your time in Thailand. Everyone knows that college students like to party, and when it comes to partying, Bangkok has the rest of the world beat.
Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand, has some of the most exciting clubs in the world. Check these out during your next visit, but be warned; you won’t ever want to return home. The only problem is you won’t want to leave. Here’s a quick rundown on some of the most exciting clubs in Bangkok.
- The Club Khaosan
Perched three stories high, the Club Khaosan is something you have to see for yourself. It quickly rose to the top of the Bangkok nightlife and is favored by ex-pats. The music is electrifying and it has been said to offer a mind riveting experience.
Onyx is by far one of the hottest clubs in Bangkok, and it’s a favorite among fans of Electronic Dance Music or EDM. This club has European influences in its design and has one of the largest single party spaces in all Bangkok.
3. Route 66
If you’re looking for some real action, check out Route 66. This Bangkok consists of three separate spaces with each one playing different music and offering something for everyone. One space plays hip-hop, another has live music, and yet another plays trance. The hip-hop room is typically the busiest.
If you hit all three of these and want to keep on partying, you can find most of Bangkok’s most exciting clubs on Royal City Avenue.
Eat Authentic Thai Food Every Chance You Get
Let’s face it, if you’re on spring break and like to party, odds are you’ll be drinking. When you drink it is important to eat to absorb all that fun and prevent yourself from passing out in the club in front of your friends.
Thailand has some of the most delicious food on the planet, no joke. The array of flavors and spices will keep you coming back for more. With so many options for street food, finding delicious Thai food is an easy task. Hit up the weekend, night, or floating markets for easy food on the go – and their incredible prices make it easy to try as much as you can to find your next favorite Thai dish!
If you fall in love with Thai food, because we know you will, you might want to know how to bring this culinary magic back home with you. For those who are looking for some excitement in the kitchen, you can easily take a Thai cooking class in any major city. If you’re a quick study, you can be the toast of your friends by whipping them up a classic Thai hangover cure of rice porridge the morning after a night of partying.
Hit the Beach
Thailand has a wealth of gorgeous beaches that you should see. Whether you want to walk along the soft sand beach or find a relaxing spot to gaze out at Thailand’s beautiful coastal waters, there’s a beach for you.
Phuket, Krabi, and Samui arguably have some of the most magnificent beaches in the Kingdom of Thailand and are really popular among spring break goers.
Getting Around on the Cheap
Now that you know some of the best things to do on spring break in Thailand, you’ll need to know how to get around without breaking the bank. Compared to many other countries, transportation to and around Thailand is extremely cheap.
One thing you should know is that there aren’t any direct flights from the United States to Thailand and will require at least one connection along the way.
The destination airport you choose has a big impact on the cost of the flight. If you want the cheapest flight available, Bangkok is your best option as a destination airport. Flights to Bangkok International Airport, known locally as Suvarnabhumi, are generally much cheaper than flights directly to other popular destinations like Chiang Mai and Phuket.
As for getting around major towns and cities, like Bangkok, some of the best modes of public transportation include the BTS Skytrain and the MRT subway. Buses in Bangkok are very inexpensive but can be confusing. If you opt to take one anyway, the best person to tell you where to get off is the one collecting the fare. Most buses in Thailand have a money collector who walks up and down the bus. They’ll ask you where you’re planning to get off, and you pay according to your destination.
One thing you’ll want to avoid is renting a car. Thai car rentals have steep prices, and the roads can be hectic. That’s because Thais drive on the other side of the road, which can be confusing for international drivers.
If you’re looking to hop from Bangkok to Chiang Mai, or vice versa, taking the train is a great way to get there. Thailand has one of the most developed train networks in the region, making the train a safe choice when traveling between cities. Opt for a second class ticket; the average ticket is not too expensive, and the train car comes with air conditioning.
What Are you Waiting For?
Now that you know what an awesome place Thailand is, its time to book your trip for spring break and experience the fun for yourself. It’ll be an adventure that you’ll never forget, seriously what are you waiting for, book a flight today!
