There are so many things to see and do in Bangkok that you could spend years before you can say you’ve done it all!
If you live in Bangkok or stay here for a long holiday you can plan a few day trips to explore something new.
Here’s where you should go, if you have enough time:
Damnoen Saduak Floating Market (Half Day)
Surely among the nicest floating market of all Thailand it will surprise you with the large quantity of boats congesting its canals and with the colorful electric life of selling and buying fruits and vegetables. It’s located about 100 Km southwest from Bangkok and the best moment to visit it it’s early morning before the heat rises up and before the crowds arrive. The tour works in a way that the more people is booking and the more the price per person gets cheaper so make sure to organize the trip with some friend if you book it with a travel agency by bus or consider the opportunity to go by taxi in the case you are 2 or 3 persons.
Ayutthaya River Cruise
Considered from the explorers of 14th- 18th centuries the most beautiful city in the world with its pagodas gilded with gold Ayutthaya still offers the travelers a fascinating quite atmosphere of a place where time stopped. Walking among the ruins and trying to figure how the old Siam’s capital was it’s a magical experience and it will increase if you will decide to discover it’s temples from the river by booking a cruise. Prices are around 1500 baht and includes the entrance fee and the lunch. We consider a day trip enough to visit it but certainly to have a layover in the town and dedicate a couple of days to the visit will definitively make you appreciate it much more!
Bridge on the River Kwai
Kanchanaburi province is for the one who visited one of the most beautiful of all Thailand. Natural landscape of tropical jungle interrupted by rivers, waterfalls and emerald colored natural pool will bring you into an idyllic scenario. The bridge constructed by prisoners of Japanese troops during the II World War and the relative Death Railway are today one of the most scenic rail routs in the country. There are different tours that you may pick up: from having a river journey with a bamboo raft to use a long-tail speed boat or an elephant trekking in the jungle. Prices depends from how many participants there are and in any case start from 2.000 baht per person and any travel agency in the city can give you lots of details of the trip.
