Bangkok is a stunning city with just the right balance of culture and urbanisation for the traveller to explore. But if this is your first time visiting this city, there is just so so much to see and do that it can be quite overwhelming. This article will help streamline things so that you will not miss out on the very essence of Bangkok.
Best time to travel for the first time
If you are a first-timer to Bangkok, the best time to travel would be from November to February. But if you are after some fun, try to make in April for the Songkran festival and be part of it all. This is also one of the hottest months for Thailand.
The city is full of temples at every corner, but which ones should you be visiting? Well, the best way to go about temple hopping is to visit the main temples in one day and try to squeeze The Grand Palace into your schedule as well.
The floating markets
This is certainly a must-visit on your first trip to Bangkok. But be warned, there are quite a few tourist traps where this attraction is concerned. Try to go on tour through a trustworthy travel agent rather than taking a tour on the spur of the moment.
This is one of the most iconic places to visit in Bangkok with its amazing stalls selling silks and little Chinese trinkets and street food. Best of all, no matter which city hotel in Bangkok you end up staying in, the spot is easily accessible. It’s just a 12-minute drive away from Avani Atrium Bangkok.
