Pay A Visit To Bangkok’s Historical Temple
One of the fascinating things to do is to pay a visit to some of Bangkok’s impressive historical temple. You get to enjoy the allure of the architecture of each building as well as understand the unique culture and rituals of the people in Thailand.
The first place that you should visit is the Grand Palace. The grounds contain more than 100 buildings that are all adorned with gold and diamonds in different colours. Several impressive buildings include Wat Phra Kaew, which is the temple of the Emerald Buddha which is also regarded as the most important Buddhist temple in Thailand.
Buddhists all over the world come here to pay homage to the statue. It is recommended to visit the temple first thing in the morning to avoid huge crowds. Another place to visit is Wat Pho which is home to the famous reclining Buddha.
Embark on a journey looking at various colourful murals illustrating over 400 images of the Buddha. There is also a conventional Thai massage school where you can discover the origins and learn the art of Thai massage. You can then visit Wat Arun or otherwise known as the Temple of the Dawn.

Some other temples that you can explore are Wat Saket and Wat Benchamabophit. The most important advice is to wear proper clothing and attires as these are sacred places. Appropriate attire includes long pants, shirts with sleeves and skirts below knee length.
Go To A Floating Market
It is not every day that you get a chance to experience a floating market. Bangkok is home to various floating markets and among the list is the famous 100-year old Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. Over the years, it has become too touristy as boats are selling souvenirs between each stall. However, it will still guarantee the best floating market experience.
