Travel Tips for visiting Bangkok

Pagodas at the foot of skyscrapers, tuk-tuks parked next to big sedans... Bangkok, the capital of Thailand,

is a unique blend of tradition and modernity. A destination in its own right, the "City of Angels" deserves at least a few days during a trip to Thailand. On the banks of the Chao Phraya River, the golden-roofed pagodas of the royal temple of Wat Phra Kaeo shine brightly. This is where you can admire the famous Emerald Buddha. But Bangkok is also the paradise of Thai cuisine, one of the most refined in Asia, and the capital of massages, which you must try at Wat Pho! And to get away from the city's sweltering heat, don't hesitate to hop on a "long tail" to discover the canals of the Thonburi district on the other side of the river.

Like most Asian capitals, Bangkok is a city in a constant effervescence 

It is difficult to spend a stay in Thailand without making a stop in this city with multiple faces. The memories of the past of Thonburi contrast with the immense buildings of the Silom district. Shopping malls are commonplace in the streets of the capital. Take the opportunity to visit one of the many massage stores where you will discover Thai massage for only 250 baths (a little more than 5!). Go to the banks of the Chao Phraya River to board one of the different bus boats for an unforgettable crossing. On land, don't hesitate to take the sky train if you want to fly over the traffic jams, rather than getting stuck in it!

As for vocabulary, the Thai language is not easy to pronounce for westerners. To start, you will just have to remember these few words: "Sawasdee Kha" (hello for women) - "Sawasdee Khrap" (hello for men); "Kop Khun Kha" (thanks for women), and "Kop Khun Krap" (thanks for men).

Frequently Asked Questions by Travelers planning a trip to Bangkok

Bangkok : what to do?

Chatuchak weekend market: open on Saturday and Sunday. This half indoor and half outdoor market gathers everything that is sold in the city and the whole country.
Traders come here to buy their goods. The prices are thus much less expensive than elsewhere.

  • The Royal Palace and Wat Phra Keo in Rattanakosin: you will discover breathtaking Buddha statues.
  • The floating market of Damnoen Saduak: a hundred kilometers from Bangkok, this floating market is one of the most famous in Thailand

What could be more pleasant to make its market than to choose its products onboard a dugout? In the floating market, you can find everything and anything.

The Thai food is certainly excellent but is careful with the spices! Those who are afraid of hot peppers should taste them in moderation...

The choice is varied: green curry, noodles, vegetables, fried rice, soup, vegetable dish... You will also have to taste the famous pad thai and symptom (green papaya salad), more or less spicy depending on the restaurant. Here, each person chooses his or her meal, and then the dishes are shared with everyone.

In Thailand, it is difficult not to find something to buy:

  • pashmina
  • stoles
  • Buddha statues,
  • Incense and other perfume
  • burners, lamps,
  • cushion cover
