Interesting Things To Do In Bangkok Three Days
Bangkok, one of the most popular destination city in Southeast Asia, It has so many tourist attractions to visit, all of them you might need plenty of time to stay but for those who don’t have much time, there’s still a lot of interesting to do and visit in couple days, doing sightseeing, temples, visit the modern city, and of course the amazing local places that you can really experience with them and being a local visitor.
1/ Mariamman Temple, Bangkok
First Day on arrival, visit the Indian temple, to get there I had a Tuk Tuk which cost me around 300 Bart from Rambuttri Road to the temple. Interesting Indian Chanting that plays over and over. There are so many Indian and Thai or Indian-Thai doing worship inside.
2/ Walking through China Town
Hopped on a taxi meter from the Indian temple to China town cost me 60 Bart. It is known as the largest Chinatown in the world serving the Chineses immigration population since 1782 so we spent over half an hour to explore and wander around the town.
3/ Khao San Road
Known as the backpacker street, with cheap foods, drinks, accommodations, tourist information, and party all night.
We booked Bangkok Canal Boat & Bike Tour this is the best way that I found to explore Bangkok city, getting away from the traffic and busy roads by cycling through the trails and small alleys, the best way to see real local life, local markets, houses all the way.
5/ Wat Saket
I got back from the tour at 3 pm. Decided not to rest but walked straight to Wat Saket (Golden Mount) Opening hour is 09-05 PM with 50 BT ticket price. The Bangkok city view was seen from the top. I was completely worn out because of the whole day cycling and with its 344 steps but it was very nice breath up there to make me feel better.
6/ Wat Arun & Wat Pho
The temple of the dawn the recognizable temple of Thailand’s landmark. It opens daily from 8:30 – 17:30 with 100 BT for the entrance fee but most of the tourists wait after dark and visit without a ticket, you can still get inside but you’re not allowed to go up of the temple. The evening would be the best time to visit because it usually lights up with gleamy golden in Bangkok twilight. We took a boat to the other side of the river and visit Wat Pho. Usually, it is busy during the day but evening is totally almost empty, then back to Khaosan Road.
7/ Grand Palace
After the whole morning at the pool, I got a taxi outside the hotel to the Palace and arrived around 1 pm in the afternoon. It was a bit hot at this time but I thought maybe fewer tourists, unfortunately, it was not. It was packed. It cost 500 BT for entry. It’s the busiest temple compare to the others but the temple is stunning, worth visiting.
8/ Damnoen Saduak Floating Market
Joined the one day tour to Damnoen Saduak floating market located in Ratchaburi Pronive about 62km from Bangkok. This floating market is very popular for local and domestic tourists. They do have several of them but Damnoen Saduak is the main and most popular one.
Just about half an hour’s drive from the floating market, we had our last stop at Maeklong Railway Market.
