Visit the bang khu wiang floating market in madrugada
Floating markets are famous in Thailand and, in fact, tend to attract tourists.
Bang Khu Wiang has the peculiarity of developing his activity between 4 and 8 in the morning, so early risers will be rewarded. As it is located on the outskirts, it is best to go by taxi there and watch the dance of the canoes, as well as that of the buyers who jump from one to another to stock their restaurant with fresh produce.
Walkthrough the Chatuchak Market
This market, which is held only on weekends, is especially diverse, with all kinds of objects, food and even animals on the counters. It is the ideal place to impregnate the atmosphere, smells and colors of Bangkok, as well as to find a variety of memories.
You can get there by bus, a good way to discover a city when you have little time.
Contemplate Temples and Monuments
Bangkok’s jewels include the Royal Palace and the temples of Wat Pho and Wat Arun.
The city is very rich in architecture and each of its monuments is worth a visit.

You will see the city from a different point of view, in all its diversity and you will gain precious time in your travels.

Bangkok’s street cuisine has a great reputation, as does its food in general.
