A scintillating city with its opulent palaces, exotic pagodas, teak mansions and spectacular temples, Bangkok is a treasure trove for sightseeing. Enhancing its appeal is its seemingly endless menu of restaurants, spas and shops. Enhance your visit to Bangkok by staying in a spacious, convenient and affordable vacation rental and not a cramped hotel room. Among the many types of vacation rentals in Bangkok are modern apartments in the central business district, multi-bedroom homes and high-rise condominiums with panoramic river views.
Bangkok is a great place for families with a host of fun activities for the kids such as the Dusit Zoo, Children’s Discovery Museum, Siam Ocean World, boat rides on the city’s extensive canal network and several amusement parks.
Sightseeing in Bangkok begins and ends in the Rattanakosin district. Here, the stunning Grand Palace, around which the original city was built, is a magnet for all visitors. You can either walk or take a tuk-tuk ride to see other sights in the area such Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha), Wat Po, with its giant reclining Buddha and Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn). For museums, don’t miss the National Museum, which is brimming with Thai cultural items and antiquities and the Royal Barges Museum, located across the river. Other excellent areas for sightseeing are Dusit, Chinatown and Paruhat.
For a unique perspective on Bangkok, take a boat trip, which typically lasts about 90 minutes, and glides past temples and historical sights. A great place to relax after sightseeing is Lumpini Park, a verdant green haven with a lake and jogging trails. With its engaging collection of outdoor markets, modern, high-tech malls and countless souvenir and handicraft vendors along the Sukhumit and Silom Roads, Bangkok is a shopper’s paradise. Look for Thai silk, suits, shoes and gemstone jewelry.
While dining in Bangkok’s fantastic restaurants is a pleasure not to be missed, eating out every day can be very expensive for a family. With a vacation rental, your fully equipped kitchen allows you to bypass pricey restaurants and prepare your own money-saving delicious meals. If you get real adventurous in the kitchen, why not try and fix a Thai specialty like Tum Yum Gung, a popular dish made with shrimp, mushrooms, onions and chili paste.
