On 1st July 2022, to enter Thailand without making any application online for most countries, you don’t even need to apply for a visa, and they will give you 30 days at arrival.

Thailand is undoubtedly one of the most popular travel destinations in Southeast Asia. Especially travelers who visit the so-called “Land of Smiles” for the first time are overwhelmed by the incredible variety of fantastic attractions and many things to do in Thailand.

In Thailand, people are amiable, and the food is delicious, but if you want to go to the local market or use a tuk-tuk ( public transportation), you have to ask about the price. Bali is one of the most popular travel destinations in the world and the best tourist place in Bali. So many hidden beach places to explore. If you plan to go to Bali, ensure not to during the peak holiday season because it will crowd people and traffic everywhere.

So, Bali is still the most popular destination for foreign and domestic also. If you want more about what to do in Bali – Ubud, check this.

Explore Bangkok

So let’s start in Bangkok, the capital city, where you can find traffic jams, noise, pollution, and crowd. If you want to explore the capital city, this is your place to explore many unique things you can explore more.

However, the total number of foreign citizens living in Thailand is estimated to be between 3–4 million, with the vast majority coming from the neighboring countries of Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, and Vietnam. I have prepared this guide on what to do in Bangkok and its surroundings; you can see attractions around the city.

What to Do in Bangkok:

  • Grand Palace
  • Wat Phra Chetuphon (Wat Pho)
  • Wat Arun Ratchawararam
  • China Town
  • Chatuchak weekend market
  • Wat Saket (Golden Mount)
  • Siam District
  • Jodd fairs
  • Pratunam market
  • Sanctuary of Truth Museum

Grand Palace

You have to visit this if you are in Bangkok to witness this place’s sheer magnitude and craftsmanship. In this vast place, so be prepared for the long walk. Be aware of the dress code, and you are not allowed to visit with sleeveless shirts or half pants. There is a sense of serenity and grandeur in this place. Do not miss out if you’re in Bangkok.

Wat Phra Chetuphon (Wat Pho)

Visit Wat Pho during the Great Buddha Night is fantastic. The ceremony is open to the public until 20h30. The location is fascinating with the color of the pottery and the ceramic decoration under the best lighting. This place shows the influence of multiple cultures in Thai art, such as Hindu, Indian, Chinese, European, and Persian. It’s a stunning Thai garden style, and traditional bending trees decorate the area.

Wat Arun Ratchawararam

This temple is the highlight of Bangkok and maybe Thailand, and rightly so. The site is compact, so during busy tourist hours, and also very crowded. However better to visit early in the morning or just before sunset as the air is more chill. In this place is a magnificent temple in the heart of Bangkok. You can reach the temple quickly and cheaply by boat.

China Town

One of the best Chinatowns in the world with delicious street food, and there are many food choices here. It is a suitable option to come at night instead of during the daytime, and the vibes here are vivacious; it gets very crowded at night. You can see some of the food stalls have a particularly long queue. It is teeming with history. Full of vibe and truly stunning.

Golden Mount

A temple is necessary to visit at the time of a visit to Bangkok. Still, it is not very known, and the location in height dominates the city with a spectacular panoramic sight. It’s necessary to climb a certain number of steps, but at each “plateau,” one attends something of magic.

The old train market is bigger and better with more varieties, but more for the retail side, and the new place is about 60% food and 40% retail. So great ambiance with a live band and a lot of food choices, and is good if you are looking for a place to chill and have some food/drinks, and if you are looking to do some shopping, also this is must visit a site to Jodd fair.

Sanctuary of Truth Museum

Suppose you are looking for a unique museum and an exciting place to visit and explore. It looks like a temple, but it’s a museum with many wooden sculptures featuring ethics, truth, social norms, and philosophies about human life. You must follow the guided tour, which will take around 45 minutes. The museum is on the beach and definitely worth to visit.
