Bangkok is not only a city where the east meets the west but also one that features idyllic nature and thrilling nightlife; here’s how to experience them both!
Amidst the Thai capital, you will find charming green spaces that provide an ideal respite from the hustle and bustle. Lumpini Park, close to properties like Pathumwan Princess Hotel, features various flora, an artificial lake and picnic areas, while the Benjasiri, Benjakitti and Chatuchak parks are also great spots to enjoy nature.
Chao Phraya River
Dubbed the “River of Kings”, the Chao Phraya River flows through the city offering a unique perspective of Bangkok; hotel deals can be found at properties within easy reach of the river where you can take Express Boats or cruises. You also get canal (klong) tours that provide more insights into the city and its connection to waterways.
Clubbing & Bar-hopping
After the sun sets, however, Bangkok becomes a place to party hard! Areas like Sukhumvit are home to glitzy nightclubs such as Sing Sing Theatre and Insanity along with plenty of bars. Clubbing enthusiasts can also dance the night away at clubs in RCA, while Khao San Road and Siam offer bar-hopping opportunities too.
Other Nightlife Allures
For more nightlife fun, visit the Sukhumvit Street Market and find great bargains on clothing, souvenirs and more. Such markets and locales like Khao San Road are ideal spots to try street food that can range from pad Thai to deep-fried scorpions! Taking a tuk-tuk tour and catching a ladyboy show will also make for a memorable night out.
