Planning your next trip to the Land of Smiles? Good choice! I’ve spent over four months in Thailand and had a chance to see a great deal of the country. Can’t really say I’ve seen everything, but definitely spots in this article are all worth visiting. Depending on how much time you have to spare and what are your preferences pick your favorites and plan the next trip across the country with virgin jungles, tropical islands and one of the best food in the world!
This is going to be a very short entry, because it might be really hard to find something you cannot buy at this enormous market in Bangkok. Chatuchak weekend market is open, as its name indicates, only at weekends and provides both locals and tourists with every product category they can think of. Thus, if I were to give you examples of goods that cannot be purchased there, I’d have to leave the space empty:)
On the Saturday morning I visited one of the floating markets that are around Bangkok. As it was a first shot I decided to go for the closest one that can be easily reached by public transportation (air-co bus). I did enjoy the trip, but it wasn’t not something that I expected from a thing called floating market.
Grand Palace is one of the main tourist attractions of Bangkok. And you can feel it before you cross the main gates. I’m not sure how many people visit this place daily, but it must be a 4-digit figure. Combining it with intense heat coming from the sky it might spoil your Grand Palace tour. Nevertheless, I think it’s still worth your time and effort, but you should get prepared for all the nuisances.
