Due to random things lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about our trip through Asia last February and specifically about our time in Bangkok. As I’ve mentioned before, I ended up really liking Bangkok and Thailand in general, something I wasn’t sure would happen before hand. Due to the nature of our trip, we ended up only having one day to explore Bangkok (as we used it more as a stopover en route to SE Asia from India). But we saw a lot of the city and here’s my suggestion to see the famous Thai city (as much of it as you can at least) in a day, if that’s all you have.
When you’ve watched the sun set and as the temperature cools as night falls, grab a tuk tuk and have them take you to the nearest light rail station. It’s a great way to see the city, especially at night when it comes alive. You’ll also be immediately cooled down as you speed (often very very fast) through the chaotic streets of Bangkok. When you arrive, jump on a train back to the Sathorn district.
*Make sure to agree upon a price before you get in the tuk tuk.
