Enjoy cultural, historical, and culinary exploration during your holiday in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand and the most populous city in the country.
Start off your visit on the 21st (Sat): step into the grandiose world of The Grand Palace, then delve into the distant past at Wat Pho, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun), and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Erawan Shrine (Thao Mahaprom Shrine). Here are some ideas for day two: make a trip to Chatuchak Weekend Market, then admire the landmark architecture of Jim Thompson House, then meet the residents at SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World, and finally make a trip to Phra Maha Chedi Si Rajakarn.

To plan Bangkok vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
