Visit the Floating Market

Get down and local with Thailand’s floating markets. Take a ride on one of their longtail boats and meet local traders. If you’re looking for the best, head for Damneon Saduak or Amphawa.

Enter Wat Arun

Named of the Indian god of dawn Aruna, Wat Arun is a temple located next to the Chao Phraya River. Standing at 79 meters high, Wat Arun is one of over 30,000 other Buddhist temples in Thailand. What makes this temple stand out is its beautiful architecture, a representation of Mount Meru, the center of the universe according to Buddhists. Visit the temple and stand in awe of its stunning design.


Take a Tuk Tuk Ride

Already have tons of plans in Bangkok but need a way to get around fast? A sky train ride might be useful, but that’s boring. Take the much more fun Tuk Tuks around Bangkok. Being one of Bangkok’s more famous modes of transportation, there is no faster way to reach point A and point B.
