Sights to See and Things to Do Around Bangkok
There is lots to see and do in Bangkok. You might want to start your trip off with an evening at Tiffany’s Cabaret Show. Highly popular, this is the first true transvestite cabaret show in Southeast Asia. Tickets run about $850.
Of course, you’ll want to see the massive complex known as the Grand Palace in Bangkok. The home of the Thai king, it is a historical treasure, having been built in 1782. This beautiful palace also serves as the royal court and the administrative seat of government.
Want to stand on top of the world? Climb to the peak of Wat Arun and thrill to the unforgettable view of the Chao Praya River below.
Visit Bangkok’s floating markets for colorful sights and fresh fruits and vegetables. You’ll even find refreshing and freshly made coconut water. Get a close look at the boats’ floating kitchens by taking a guided boat tour of the Damnoen Saduak market.
Next, sail through the city of Bangkok in a water-taxi on the Chao Praya River and visit some of the oldest settlements of Bangkok, including Bangkok Noi. Your tour will glide past areas such as Wat Arun and the Phra Sumeru forests.
If you love sports, be sure to catch the Muay Thai match. Western boxing on steroids, Muay Thai fighting makes use of punches, kicks, elbows, and knee strikes.
Include a Run to Pattaya, Too
In Pattaya treat yourself to the stunning sight of the largest image of Buddha in the world at Buddha Mountain. Continue to the Nong Nooch Village, which will soothe both your eyes and your soul with its orchid garden and its lovely zoo. Then give yourself a day at Jomtien Beach for some jet-surfing, parasailing, or windsurfing. On the other hand, you could frolic in the surf, play in the sand, or lie on the beach and soak up some sun there.
You’ll also find the Sanctuary of Truth in Pattaya, a labyrinth of wooden carvings built as a religious structure in 1981 by Thai businessman Lek Viriaphant. Constructed entirely of wood, the elaborate structure is filled with sculptures based on Buddhist and Hindi motifs.
Finally, be sure to visit the beautiful aquarium at Underwater World Pattaya. However, do be sure to book this spot in advance, as it is extremely popular.
Plan now for a 4-night, 5-day trip to Thailand, or even longer if you can spare the time and want to see more sights. Your trip to Thailand will be an adventure that you and your friends will talk about in years to come, and you’ll make memories you will cherish forever.
