    Bangkok attractions

    I'll be going on a 3 day trip to Bangkok with my family on October. What are the things to do there? I've been told Pattaya is a beautiful place to look into. Can someone tell me what all I must try out and see while I'm in the city?

    I've lived in Thailand for 3 years, and Bangkok for 1 and a half. Pattaya, in my opinion, is the worst place in Thailand. It is essentially the sex tourism capital of the world, and all the worst sex tourists (you will see pedophiles openingly walking down the street with little girls) gather here. Not a place to take your family... As for the beaches... there are MUCH better in Thailand. If you're looking for a nice island close to Bangkok, try Ko Samet.

    As for Bangkok itself, I would start by taking a ride on the Chao Phraya river, and visiting The Grand Palace, Wat Pho, and Wat Arun. Hit up Sukhumvit Soi 38 for some good street food. Wander the markets (Chatuchak on the weekends, Rot Fai market at night). Maybe catch a Muay Thai fight.

    If you get bored in Bangkok, take an hour train ride to the old capital Ayutthaya just north of Bangkok and hire a tuktuk to take you around the ancient temples.

    Hope that helps. Have fun!!

    I would agree with Wombles in that Wat Pho, The Grand Palace and taking a ride on the Chao Phraya river are worth looking out in Thailand, I also find (although it isn't an attraction as such) that the foot massage shops are amazing after a long day walking and exploring that I fell asleep and wondered how long i'd been asleep for.

    Chiang Mai is laid back compared to Bangkok and has plenty of Buddhist temples which are amazing to the eye and the landscapes are stunning. I would recommend an overnight train there as it takes awhile but it is worth heading out too providing you can fit it into your plans.

    Oh my god. Are you serious about Pattaya? That was number one in my "to go to" list. I'm going with my parents and sister along with another family with little kids. All of them are excited and hung up on that one beach! I've heard so much about that place, that it's beautiful and a must see. You're the first one to warn me about it! And thank god for that! I wonder how I'll explain this to the rest of them without making it awkward. Thanks a ton though!

    I like the sound of Chiang Mai, I think I'll get the others to agree on it after a little more research on the transportation and accommodation details. Thanks!

    No worries Eudora13, but the overnight train there is an experience too. I went on it in 2nd class sleeper and everyone was curious about me in terms of where I was from, where have I been, What do I think, what my plans are. It was fun to see the children's faces when I answered their questions and showed them pictures of where I come from.

    Have a great trip.

    Eudora: If you're looking for nice beaches close to Bangkok, check out Ko Samet. It's a little island about 2-3 hours from Bangkok, with beautiful beaches and a nice laid back attitude. Much nicer than Pattaya, and without seedy parts as well. And it's touristy, so you can find anything you need.

    Re: Bangkok attractions

    I agree Dairra, It is a bit too small but there is not much green space in Bangkok though. It is a must see if anyone like flowers and pretty things. I used to visit this Queen Sirikit Park before long time on the behalf of my collage. Worth the visit for me and it made my trip to Asia most memorable.

    Re: Bangkok attractions

    Some places are the most visiting places in Bangkok. I have to share some name of attraction below:
     Grand Palace
     Golden Buddha
     Safari World
     National Museum
     Lumphini Park
    These places are the most visiting places in Bangkok. You can also enjoy on your tour.

    during your tour avoide somethings as

    Don't do drugs here.
    Don't walk alone at night on the beach
    If someone gets too friendly too fast beware.
    Don't accept drinks from anyone you don't know.
    Don't disrespect the King
    Don't make a Thai lost face.
    Smile even when your upset.
    Always when taken a taxi use the meter or you will be overcharged.

    There are thousand of your ladies here every day and they have no problem and you shouldn't either. Just don't do anything stupid.


    Thailand is an amazing country with so much to offer and transportation, accommodation and food are so cheap that you should be visiting at least two if not more cities while you're there (eg. go to Chiang Mai and Buriram for culture and Phuket and Hua Hin for beaches).

    I found only two restaurants which had reasonable price and authentic Indian taste.

    Taste of India on Khaosan Road
    Bollywood on Soi 4 in Sukhumvit Area

    Avoid India Today on Soi 5 in Sukhumvit, very expensive and no taste.
    hope these information help you .

    Aaliyah! I had a great experience by enjoying the Floating Market. Its a bustling place where visitors come here to enjoy the good in a stylish way. Where the things are sold with the help of boat. The market is at the Damnoen Saduak, gives a nice option to enjoy through the traditional way of goods selling. You can see this in Thailand,Vietnam and Indonesia.
