Do you know your way around Khao San Road too well? Bangkok is one of the most diverse capitals of Asia. Either you’re looking for Michelin star worthy street food, a splendid cycling tour through China town’s old alleys or the best rooftop bars. Bangkok has it all.
China Town street food
Thailand is all about food. China Town is well known for its Michelin star worthy street food scene. Make sure to arrive with an empty stomach to try out some new dishes. A spicy papaya salad and mango sticky rice are definitely a must try!
This is our favourite vintage market which is every Saturday and Sunday. Thousands of small shops sell the coolest vintage and new items. Go early morning or late night to avoid the heath and crowd.
Bangkok counts endless rooftop bars. But these two are a must visit. The rooftop of Sala Rattanakosin in Bangkok’s Old Town is quite low but has a stunning romantic view over the glittering Grand Palace, Wat Po and Wat Arun. The rooftop of Vertigo and Moon bar on top of the Banyan Tree Hotel is immense high en has sweeping views over the whole city. Make sure to arrive at 17:00 when the bar opens, for the best sunset spot.
The Grand Palace
Visiting the palace is always a good idea. Go with sunrise or sunset to get the best snaps with gorgeous pastel pink skies.
In buzzing Bangkok is 24 hours a day something to do. Make sure you’ll make your way to The Brown Sugar and Maggie Choo’s. These two smoking jazz bars put up an authentic atmosphere you won’t find anywhere else. Great drinks, a Thai hipster crowd, live fine music and entertainment!
Cycling in China Town
Cycling is hot in Bangkok! Rent a bike and make your own way, or book a cycling tour in China Town. Early morning the small lanes and alleys are full of life. Cycle along local markets, hidden gems and colorful temples.
Escape the buzz of the city and clear your mind. Get up early (yes again) en join a free sunrise Tai Chi lesson in one of the many parks in Bangkok.
In Indigo Hotel on Wireless Road in Sukhomvit is the best pool with view of Bangkok. You have to be a guest in the hotel to make use of it. But staying at Indigo Hotel definitely guarantees you a sweet night and breakfast!
When in Thailand a Thai massage can’t be missed on your to do list. You can get one on almost every corner of the street. But if you want to experience the absolute best Thai massage you’ve ever had, book one at Oasis Spa. It is heaven!
