TOP 5 Things to do in Bangkok:
1. Sea Life Bangkok
Sea Life Bangkok (previously known as Ocean World) is one of the largest aquariums in Southeast Asia and definitely a place worthy of visit, especially if you’re on a trip with kids. It is also great as a wet weather plan!
The exhibits include an underwater tunnel, countless species of fishes and other marine life such as octopus, turtles and even penguins!
Estimated Wallet Damage: SGD44/adult & SGD36/child (pss.. it’s cheaper if you purchase combo sets)
Address: Sea Life Bangkok is located in Siam Paragon | Siam Paragon Shopping Centre, 991 Rama 1 Rd, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330
2. ChatuChak Weekend Market
One simply cannot miss the Chatuchak Weekend Market when visiting Bangkok. This huge weekend market sells almost everything from clothes to shoes to bags to food. Being one of the top attractions in Bangkok, the Chatuchak Weekend Market boast up to 15 000 different stalls and attracts about 200,000 visitors each day!
Be sure to haggle for prices here to get a better deal! Do note that this market is only open during weekends as the name suggest!
Estimated Wallet Damage: Depends on how much of a shopaholic are you
Not visiting Bangkok on a weekend? Fret not, there are many other exciting markets and malls you can visit such as Platinum Fashion Mall, MBK Centre, Terminal 21, Siam Square, Khao San Road, Chinatown Market and more!
3. Visit Palaces
There are 2 Palaces that we would like to recommend: The Grand Palace and Dusit Palace. Both palaces have significant historical value – The Grand Palace is home to the Kings of Siam since 1782 while Dusit Palace is the primary residence of King Rama V.
Do remember to dress appropriately when visiting these places!
Estimated Wallet Damage: SGD22/person (keep your Grand palace ticket to get free admission to Dusit Palace)
4. Floating Markets
There are quite a handful of floating markets in Bangkok that one could visit, from the famous Damnoen Saduak Floating Market and Amphawa Floating Market to lesser known markets such as the Talin Chan Floating Market and Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market.
It’s debatable which floating market is the best to visit as each have their pros and cons. In general, Damnoen and Amphawa are further from Bangkok and more touristy (translate: crowded), but is livelier, bigger and have more boats.
On the other hand, Talin Chan and Khlong Lat Mayom are closer to Bangkok and less touristy (translate: more authentic experience) but are a lot smaller and quieter with less boats.
Estimated Wallet Damage: Ranges from SGD9 – SGD13 for row boats and SGD25 – SGD35 for motor boats
5. Pamper Yourself – Thai Massage & Spa
Nothing beats a good old traditional Thai massage to press out the years of accumulated knots in your body, or a luxurious spa session at a fraction of the price. There are many different Massage and Spa packages available from cheap thrills to luxurious private massage rooms so chose wisely based on your budget!
Estimated Wallet Damage: Varies
