Guys, Expedia has announced a sale on hotels, flights, and packages to Bangkok
We're halfway through the year and after 6 months of work, deadlines, stress, and life in general... you know you deserve an awesome holiday abroad!
What's there to do in Bangkok? Here's a rundown of sights and noms to check out in this beautiful city:
1. Visit Wat Arun, located at the bank of the Chao Phraya River
There are over 40,000 temples in Bangkok but there's something magical about Wat Arun. The Temple of Dawn has a unique design that includes colourfully decorated spires and is unlike any temple in Thailand.
2. Head to Khao San Road, the backpacker capital of the world
Check out bars, shops, street food, vendors, both local and international stores and restaurants, and activity all day and night.
3. Shop at Bangkok's famous Chatuchak Weekend Market
Take in the bustling atmosphere and enjoy the huge variety of goods, from clothes and art to pets and souvenirs.
4. Go cafe-hopping and enjoy local coffee and delicious noms in gorgeous settings
5. Visit unique themed restaurants you can't find anywhere else
From unicorns and rabbit cafes to outdoor piazzas and more :D
Enjoy the fresco by the pool at Rome Restaurant.
Tickle your sweet tooth with rainbow everything at the Unicorn Cafe.
If you love the freaky and creepy, try some Eyeball Jello and other strange treats at this Halloween-themed cafe called Kaethy The Witch.
6. Cycle around Bang Krachao, an island in the middle of Chao Phraya River
Known as the green lung of Bangkok, the island remains preserved, with some local business and a park that's perfect for a tour on a bicycle.
7. Marvel at the unusual and quirky architecture
Located in the Chatuchak district, the Elephant Tower is one of the most unique buildings in Bangkok.
The Robot Building is located on South Sathorn Road and was inspired by the architect's son's robot :O
The 'Sathorn Unique' Ghost Skyscraper is a 50-storey 'haunted' building that has been abandoned since 1997.
8. Soak in some culture at these unorthodox museums
One of the most popular (and unsettling) attractions in Bangkok is the Forensic and Pathology Museum. Situated in the Siriraj Hospital, it features displays such as dead bodies and mummified corpses of murderers and accident victims :O (Don't bring your kids).
Indulge your nerdy side by visiting the Batcat Toy Museum. The comic book paradise displays thousands of action figures, from the very first Batman to Ultraman and more.
Get a close look at our anatomy in the Human Body Museum. Not for the faint hearted, this museum displays everything in the body from vital organs and the circulatory system, right down to the skeleton.
