|Stepping into Bangkok where sensory overload hits you like a wave. A million different scents and noises overwhelm you, making this city 1 of the most electrifying destinations in the world. |
Whether you are eating street food, wandering through an ornate temple or trying to navigate streets crowded with tuk-tuks, Bangkok is packed with adventure.
|Time to travel to Thailand: November — February|
Bangkok’s Winter is its peak travel season, as the temperatures drop and make the humidity more bearable. But this also means crowds nearly double, clogging up the streets. Travel during months, November and February, for the same cool temperatures but fewer tourists.
More Bang for Your Buck
Forget everything you know about normal mealtimes. In Bangkok, you eat whenever and wherever you want.
Snacking on street food throughout the day will keep you satisfied without breaking the bank, and it’s a greatway to try the numerous foods that Thailand is famous for.
I am talking more than just pad thai.
You will find khanom bueang, tom yam, som tam, kuay teow and more. If you do want to treat yourself to a nice dinner, there are plenty of options. Le Du offers seasonal Thai favorites with a modern twist, while Issaya Siamese Club serves up exceptional cuisine in a stunning 100-year-old villa.
When the Sun goes down, find your way to a rooftop bar like Sky Bar at Lebua or Vertigo for stylish cocktails and stunning city views.
|Bedtime in Bangkok|
One of the best things about Bangkok being such a popular destination for visitors is that the accommodation options are plentiful and varied.
For pure luxury
A stay at The Siam Hotel or The Peninsula Hotel will have you feeling like royalty, while chic travelers might find the urban cool Hotel Josh more their style.
If you are traveling on a budget you can find clean rooms with amenities coming in between US$10–$30 at Sivalai Palace and Smile Society Boutique Hostel.
Note: The rules regarding Airbnb and short term rentals are complicated, so do a little research ahead of time to make sure you are traveling responsibly.
