4-Day Bangkok Adventure: Temples, Markets, and More!

4 Days


Bangkok is a city that assaults the senses in the best possible way. With its glittering temples, vibrant street food scene, and chaotic energy,


Start your day at the Grand Palace, the opulent former residence of the Siamese kings. Be sure to dress modestly (covered shoulders and knees) as this is a functioning temple complex. Marvel at the intricate architecture and the Emerald Buddha, a revered Buddha statue carved from jade.
In the afternoon, Wat Pho, the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, is another must-see. Here you'll find a massive reclining Buddha statue that is 46 meters long and 15 meters high! Wat Pho is also known for its traditional Thai massage school.
In the evening, take a stroll down Khao San Road, a backpacker haven with a lively atmosphere. Here you can find anything from cheap eats to souvenirs. Be prepared for the crowds and the hawkers, but it's all part of the experience!

Take a day trip to Ayutthaya, the former capital of Siam. The ruins of the ancient city are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offer a glimpse into Thailand's rich history. You can explore the ruins by bike, tuk-tuk, or boat.
In the afternoon, take a boat tour down the Chao Phraya River, the lifeblood of Bangkok. The river is lined with historical landmarks, including Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn. Enjoy the view of the city from the water and take a break from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok.

No trip to Bangkok would be complete without some shopping! Chatuchak Weekend Market is the largest weekend market in the world, with over 15,000 vendors selling everything from clothing and souvenirs to food and flowers. Be prepared to bargain!
If you're looking for something a little more upscale, head to Siam Paragon, one of the largest malls in Asia. Here you can find luxury brands, designer stores, and a wide variety of restaurants.
In the evening, take a cooking class and learn how to make some of your favorite Thai dishes. This is a great way to learn about Thai culture and cuisine.

Start your day with a visit to Lumpini Park, Bangkok's largest green space. Here you can rent a paddle boat, go for a jog, or simply relax in the shade of the trees.
In the afternoon, visit Wat Traimit, the Temple of the Golden Buddha. This temple houses a massive solid gold Buddha statue that weighs over five tons!
In the evening, enjoy a farewell dinner at a rooftop restaurant with stunning views of the Bangkok skyline.
