Bangkok is a great place for travellers, offering a great variety of food, cultural experiences, and activities. Since most international flights to Thailand invariably land here, one ends up spending a couple of nights in Bangkok itself.

While Ocean World is a massive display of life under the sea, Safari World promises access to the wild and beautiful and is one of the most amazing things to see when in Bangkok such as dolphin show, crocodile show, and seal show which kept our excitement in all high spirits.
You could perhaps squeeze in a visit to Bangkok’s weekend delight, the Chatuchak Weekend Market. Spread over 35 acres you will find everything that could be on sale (think: lamps, ceramics, clothing, and even a python!). With more than 8000 market stalls and about 20,000 visitors to jostle and make your way through, this is definitely a place to indulge in some ethnic shopping and literally ‘shop till you drop’.
Another interesting part of Bangkok is the Chao Phraya Dinner Cruise. Dine your way through the delightful sights of Bangkok as you cruise along the Chao Phraya River.
