Bangkok through our lens : TakeMeTour’s Review

Locally called Krung Thep which literally means The City of Angel, hosts millions of travelers every year with load of options to stay and things to do. One can decide to go super extravaganza or extra light budget in this wonderful city as one may please. We know Bangkok is famous for so many stuff, but half of it didn’t quite represent what locals feel about their own city. A lot of local neighbourhoods and corners are often overlooked or too hard for a visitors to go on their own. We believe their places are worth a visit with a little bit of help from the local. : )

7 popular things to do in Bangkok

1. Street food

Rated by CNN as the best city in the world for street food, Bangkok hosts an astonishing scene for street food experiences. Thai street foods are influenced by many roots including Chinese, Malay or European. Hygiene can be a concern for many travelers, so be wise where to eat. Also be cautious and avoid getting trapped in the over-priced, unauthentic and touristy spots. Best to follow the lead where locals queue up. 

2. Temple

Bangkok houses thousands of renowned temples with their own uniqueness. These temples reflect the value Thailand holds, deeply rooted in Thai culture. Regardless of your belief, visiting temples is one of the best way to understand Thainess. Some of the most frequently visited are Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Arun and Wat Pho. Yet, there are hundreds other for you to explore.

3. Floating Market

Rivers and canals used to be like highway in the past. Cities were connected via river and boats were the main mode of transportation. Markets were not an exception, vendors sell products on the boats too. Nowadays, you can visit floating markets still to experience the glimpse of the past and see find some of the most fascinating local food scene!

Local Floating Market :  Wat Takian Floating Market (Only Weekend), Kwan Riam Floating Market, Bang Nam Phueng Floating Market (Only Weekend), Lamphaya Floating Market

4. Night activities

We can say that Bangkok is restless. At night time, you will always find something to do, to see, and even to eat. Entertainment, music and food are in Thai genes. Some of the notable pubs & clubs are in Khao San Road, Thonglor, and RCA. For food, people love to go to Chinatown and Rod Fai Market. Although the Red Light District often make international headlines, other parts of the city might be more tempting if you seek an authentic experience at night. 

5. Shopping

Bangkok can offer a wide range of shopping experiences from wholesale to luxury. Chatuchak Market is most renowned for a place you can find everything you can possibly imagine. Phahurat and Sampeng are best for wholesale, Pratunam is for clothes & accessories. Siam Paragon, Central World, Emquartier are for lifestyle and luxury. Or visit Gaysorn Village for extravaganza. Ready to shop til you drop? 

6. Learn Thai culture

Thai culture is a mixture of humbleness, liveliness and relaxation. Grab the opportunity to attend workshops and cultural shows in Sampran Riverside, or Agro tour in Mahasawat Canal, or simply follow a local friend to their house to see a relaxing lifestyle by the river. To understand more of Thailand is to understand how Thais live. 

7. Away from Bangkok

Bangkok residents regularly need to face traffics and stress everyday in this chaotic city. On weekend or public holiday, they love to go outside away from Bangkok to just enjoy nature, breathe in some fresh air with their family and loved ones. Towns surrounding Bangkok can offer a more authentic, country, genuine Thai lifestyle. Visitors will have the opportunity to see more of traditional careers like rice farmer, fisherman, salt-farmer, potter, and more.
