When in Bangkok

Let’s get this out of the way, Bangkok would not be in my top cities to visit but there is good in it. I feel a bit conflicted opening this blog story in this way because it’s almost condemning the city as a whole but that’s not the case, it’s just a different idea of ‘relaxation’.

Truth be told, I went there for a short visit for work purposes, but boy we had a blast. We took a Tuk Tuk around the chaotic city, it’s a concrete jungle, a place where I made a vow to never complain about Sydney traffic again.

If you happen to visit and are looking for something to do here are my recommendations:

  • Shop till you heart drops in MBK Shopping Centre, your standard designer shops and places to eat.
  • If you are after a market experience, visit the Pratunam Market, an overwhelming spot for clothes, jewellery, shoes, anything and absolutely everything.
  • Fancy a little fancy? listen up. Head to the So Sofitel Hotel, have a few cocktails at HI-SO rooftop bar followed by a delightful fine dining experience at Park Society.
  • Best of all, jump on a Tuk Tuk, pay the driver double, warn him about how much you value your life and to pay EXTRA ATTENTION to this thing they call road and from then he will take you around the ‘Hidden’ spots of the city for shopping.
  • At the very least, end your trip with a Thai Massage – your hotel should have one.
I understand, this isn’t the full Thai experience but had 2 full days. If you’ve been, where would you recommend?
