Things to do in Bangkok!
Lumpini park was possibly my favourite place I visited in Bangkok! It was such a nice day out spent in this beautiful park. It gave me serious Central Park vibes. A little stroll round the park checking out Bangkok's nature and saying hello to their slinky reptile neighbours. Honestly just walk round this park and let nature work its magic.
Temples/River Cruise:Bangkok is a city full of culture, so it would be rude not too check out some of their incredible temples! Now girls remember if you choose to pay these temples a visit to have your knees and shoulders covered. When visiting Bangkok's temples we did take a river cruise to get to a few of the temples. My favourite temple was Wat Pho- The temple of the reclining Buddha. A few other popular temples to visit are Wat Arun, Wat Phra Kaew and Wat Traimit. You will learn so much about Bangkok and their culture when visiting these mesmerising temples.
Khao San Road:
I think it is technically illegal to visit Bangkok and not check out the crazy Khao San Road. I have never been to a crazier road in my life. Honestly this place is on another level. Check this place out even if its just for the experience. I ate some of the best food on this road, $1 Pad Thai and it was better than most restaurant food I have ate. When visiting it is compulsory to have a after meal snack of Bangkok's most popular delicious insects. If this doesn't tickle your fancy try a cheeky little scorpion on a stick.... mmmm! Seriously though you have to spend a night on this road and just drink buckets all night, it will definitely be a night you will never forget or possibly remember!!
Sky Bar- featured in The Hangover:
The sky bar at Lebua Bangkok is the famous bar that was part of the very popular film "The Hangover". This place is the complete opposite to your popular tourist destination Khao San Road. Before going to Lebua I would make sure your dressed appropriately as they do have a strict dress code. I have heard of people being knocked back for wearing the wrong shoes etc, so just check this out before heading there to be disappointed! This place is simply beautiful they have done well when building this place, the views are breathtaking. If you are on a backpackers budget make sure you budget properly for this one guys it is not a cheap night out.
Floating Markets:The famous floating markets, I unfortunately didn't get a chance to visit the markets but I would have loved to check them out!
Visit The MBK centre:
Bargains. Bargains. Bargains. Bangkok's famous shopping mall, 8 floors jam packed with so many bargains on clothes, accessories and luggage. We spent so long here walking round checking out all the bargains and paying dirt cheap prices for knock off clothes with brands such as Nike. Also check out the food stalls outside- some of the best pad Thai and spring rolls I have ate. Delicious. Below you will see the traditional Thai boxing shorts I found there!
Thai Cooking Class:
The food in Thailand is some of the best you will taste. So when backpacking Thailand or just visiting on a holiday a Thai cooking class is definitely a must do. I enjoyed this a lot more than I expected and I was so excited. We were taught by a traditional Thai chef how to cook the popular dishes such as the famous Pad Thai. You will be taught about all the flavours and smells in the Thai food. Wait for it you also get to eat every dish you cook and oh they are so delicious!
