Explore the best corners of the city

If you get tired of seeing temples and monuments, you can always visit some of the best corners of the city. For example, in Bangkok you can find different green areas, such as Lumphini Park or Santichaiprakan Park. It is also essential to visit Chinatown, a neighborhood where chaos prevails, despite being quite safe. Here you will find all kinds of stalls, although the most typical are food and clothing stalls. The best thing about this neighborhood is that it is full of life practically at all hours. Very different is the financial area, which is full of skyscrapers, shopping centers and modern bars and restaurants. Of course, you should also walk along Kaosan Road and its surroundings, a place where a lot of hostels, bars, restaurants, all kinds of shops, massage stalls are concentrated … In short, it is the tourist ghetto of the city. In addition, you can also browse the "red light district" of Bangkok, the Soi Cowboy, which is full of sex shops.


Recommended activities

In addition to visiting all these places, there are some activities that you should do in Bangkok if you have enough time. For example, you should take a ride in a tuk tuk , the most typical means of transport in the Thai capital. It is also advisable to get to know the city by navigating its Chao Phraya river. On the other hand, you should visit some of its many markets. The most famous of them all is Chatuchak , where you can find practically everything. If you like to be massaged, take advantage of the prices offered by professionals in the city. On the other hand, many travelers take advantage of their trip to Bangkok to see a fight of Muay Thai, a fighting sport of Thai origin. The most important take place at the Ratchadamnoen Stadium and at the Lumpini Stadium. In addition, we recommend that you enjoy its gastronomy to the fullest, especially its delicious fruits. And if you consider yourself brave, dare to try the bugs.
