Where to Go in Bangkok

Thailand, Bangkok Guide (B): Where to Go in Bangkok

If you’re planning on travelling to various parts of Thailand then most likely the country’s crazy busy capital, Bangkok is on your list. I hear many people say they only passed through Bangkok to get to their next destination, or that Bangkok is so crazy you’ll only need a day before you want to escape. I can see this point of view. Bangkok is HUGE, and is in fact a very busy place with a lot going on. Though in saying that I’d like to inspire you to embrace it as it is and give the whole city a chance. There is so much to do and see in this huge capital (apart from partying) and you may just end up falling in love with it.

If you follow my work, you’ll know that I prefer slow travel and like to get to know a city and it’s culture well before moving on to the next destination. So I spent a total of 2 weeks exploring Bangkok to bring you my personal guide on places to explore during your next visit!

If you’re new to Bangkok you’ll more than likely end up on Khao San Road. You may have heard the saying “what happens in Bangkok, stays in Bangkok.” Well more specifically I’d like to translate this to “what happens on Khao San Road, REALLY happens on Khao San Road!” (Just think of the Hangover II movie) ......
