If you have Thailand in your bucket list make sure that you include Bangkok in your itinerary. So here you have our personal itinerary of 3 days.
TEMPLES IN BANGKOK – TOP TEMPLES
One of the things you will see most of time is Temples, a lot of them, and unfortunately you cannot see all of them in 3 days so just shortlisted.
Wat Arun, Wat Pho and Wat Saket were by far our favourites.
We recommend you to pick up the Chao Pharaya Express Boat (Ferry Boat) from any station to Wat Arun. Then just for an extra Bahts for the local government boat to cross the river to visit Wat Pho.
Wat Arun it’s a beautiful temple, we spent 2 hours there easily between take a lot of photos, and just be surrender to his beauty.
Wat Pho, it’s a Buddhist temple complex, be prepare to long queue and then just enjoy the 46 M long reclining Buddha.
From the Wat Pho temple you can walk to the Wat Saket or just pick up a Tuk-Tuk (remember to negotiate the fee before you jump in)
The Wat Saket, is located in the Golden Mountain Temple, there you can enjoy the beautiful skyline of bangkok.
THE GRAND PALACE BANGKOK
This is a complex palace were inside you will see an impressive buildings including Wat Phra Kaew. This palace is located in the old city, just in the heart of Bangkok.
You will find long queues, its not a cheap ticket but is worth it! You will be impressed by all the beauty around you.
LEBUA STATE TOWER
We didn’t visit this place inside, but from the hotel that we stayed, we had the opportunity to see it from another perspective.
The Lebua State Tower not only is famous by the best view of the capital but as well by the movie The Hangover!
YAOWARAT ROAD TO KHAO SAN ROAD– THE REALLY BANGKOK MADNESS
Yes it’s true. Here is the real madness. But here you can also find local restaurants with tasty and cheap food. From here pick a tuk-tuk a visit the Khao San Road. Another spot known for the famous movie of the Leonardo DiCaprio, “The Beach”.
Everything that you imagine, it happens in this street, so it’s definitely worth a visit.
CHATUCHAK WEEKEND MARKET
This is one of the most popular markets on Bangkok, and like the names says, is open only during the weekend. Anything you can imagine is there, believe us.. EVERYTHING. It’s a huge market so make sure that don’t get lost there…
We loved this park. It’s so peaceful and huge. We just enjoy in our last day in this beautiful country, a big walk through the green grass, taking photos to the huge dragons lizards. That’s true, they are BIG! Jorge even try to scare me.. But they are armless.
