Everything is larger than life in Bangkok, be it the towering skyscrapers, climate controlled malls or simply the experience of living in. Trying your luck on the casino tables, going on a whirlwind tour of giddying theme park joyrides, drinking in the rich cultural milieu of a multitude of temples and museums and surrendering yourself to this beautiful destination, get ready for a memorable holiday. Some experiences you must not miss in Bangkok are:

  • Massage at a luxury spa

    Home to one of the best spas in Asia, Bangkok promises to indulge your senses in the best way possible. Feast your eyes on the beauteous sights that greet you as soon as you step into one of these, let the calming music take your worries away, relish the enchanting fragrance of the soothing aroma oils and transcend into another world as the skilled masseuses work off all the tension in your muscles. Sign up for luxury packages or pick up an assortment of treatments, but don't step out of the city without spending some time at the spa!

  • Shopping for electronics

    Two thirds of travellers to Bangkok are undoubtedly looking to grab a steal deal on one electronic item or other, most commonly lcd or led televisions. Funky, innovative gadgets and luxury electronics at a fraction of the prices give you reason enough to pick up mp3 players, cameras, televisions, dvd players, mobile phones, microwaves and basically all gadgets under the sun. Trust an old hand on this one, a vacation in Bangkok isn’t complete till you have picked up at least one electronic item.

  • Trying street food

    Tingling spicy noodles, steaming porridges, juiciest of chicken, oyster omelets, the streets at Bangkok sizzle with some of the best tasting food in the whole of Asia. Not content with a special cuisine for itself, Thailand seems to be on some sort of food revolution and its effects are unquestionably at their evident best at Bangkok. Don’t forget to savour the food at the numerous stalls that dot the city. Eating on the streets at Bangkok won’t give you health problems either, as it is often called one of the safest cities for having seafood.

  • Shopping in a boat

    No shopping spree in Bangkok is complete without an experience of the city’s famous floating markets such as Bang Khu Wiang, Damnoen Saduak, Taling Chan and Tha Kha. A great way to mix shopping with a boating trip and a rich insight into the simple traditional Thai way of life, these floating markets ensure loads of fun. Most of the floating markets have the usual frenetic pace of traditional outdoor bazaars. Now tell me honestly, doesn’t the idea of a boat traffic jam cause a flurry in your stomach? Come to Bangkok to experience it first hand!

A surprisingly huge world of diversified experiences in Bangkok leave an indelible mark on the memory and haunt you long after the holidays are over. Don’t forget to remember and get a taste of all these activities in the City of Angels.
