It’s not only our technology that needs a regular recharge, we all do! With this thought, my friend  Sasha and I set foot on the shores of Bangkok at the start of October last year. And it was a roller-coaster! Of course, we had a to-do list but as we set to explore the city, we realized it had so much to offer. And yes, we came back with an updated one. It’s time to allow you a glimpse of it.

3 days in Bangkok | My itinerary
Where we stayed

Our idea of a dream staycation during our Bangkok travel was brought alive by Hotel Avani and its amazing view of the Chao Praya river. Dining indulgence, fitness facilities, an amazing pool and delicious food. Did the traveler in you just wake up?

Siam Ocean World & Madame Tussauds

Two major attractions in Bangkok are located in malls opposite to each other. If aquatic environments have ever fascinated you, Ocean World is the place to increase your knowledge and broaden your outlook.
Walk in a few paces and you reach Madame Tussauds, the world’s favourite wax museum. Click selfies with who’s who from the world of glamour and entertainment and hang out with their wax counterparts.

Princess Cruise

Hop on the Princess cruise along Chao Praya for some amazing views and a gourmet buffet as you float past the city. While the live band belts out hit numbers from different eras, you get to travel through a view of illuminated city and its majestic monuments from a special spot on the river.

Wat Pho – Reclining Buddha

Built around 200 years ago, the gold plated 46 meters long and 15 meters high, the idol of reclining Buddha is a treat to watch. Bangkok is famous for it’s massages but DO NOT, I repeat, do not miss the traditional Thai massage here.

Floating Market Tour

Floating markets are a thing, be it the ones for fruits and food or other necessities of life. Bangkok is not only known for the hustle and bustle of a crowded city market, but also a combination of such unique little shopping spots.  This is one novel way to shop as you pass through all sorts of chaos and colours. A perfect place to buy a souvenir for your travel memories from Bangkok.

Mahanakhon

In the heart of Bangkok is MahaNakhon, a place that should be right up there on your itinerary. It is a mixed-use skyscraper that houses a host of hotel and retail chains and residences. A square-shaped prism tower that adorns the skyline of Bangkok, it makes your jaw drop. A classy and elegant place to visit, I must say! Book on their website

Siam Niramit

Flying dancers, vibrant costumes, colorful backdrops, and a plethora of performers greet you at Siam Niramit, a spectacular stage performance that defines the history & culture of Bangkok. The special effects add to the vibe and the show takes you on a mystical journey that is so enriching and gripping. More info

Safari world

Catch the breathtaking view of the wildlife roaming nonchalantly in their surroundings as you drive through them. Drive further and you enter the predator’s den – lions, tigers, black bears. After all, you won’t find many places where wildlife and humans co-exist. Takes an entire day to navigate, ideally! I’d book in advance to avoid queue booking link.

There is much more to discover in Bangkok, like some beautiful palaces and museums, a place full of culture and a city has so much to offer.
