Holidays to Bangkok
The capital of Thailand is an enticing blend of traditional culture and vibrant street life. Bangkok is ideal for a short getaway from Singapore with family and friends. No matter how many times you visit this bustling city, its sights and sound will never fail to surprise you on every visit. The ever-changing metropolis offers something for every traveller, including the not-to-be missed unique street food, shopping, and night markets.
Things to do in Bangkok
Eating at Street Food Stalls
Experience the taste of authentic local cuisine at the little food stalls by the roadside, straight out of a pushcart, or hidden amongst the maze of Bangkok streets. Be prepared to be amazed by the variety and flavours of these street foods, as enjoyed by both locals and tourists alike. A must-try when in Bangkok.
Shop at Night Markets
Bangkok is shopping heaven with multiple night markets to visit. Some famous night markets include Talad Rot Fai 1, Talad Rot Fai 2 and Talad Neon. Immerse yourself in the unique energy and vibe of these night markets for a local experience like no other. Make the most of your time during your short Bangkok getaway and top off your market visit with a delicious meal at one of the numerous food stalls in the market.
Go on a Cultural Trail
During your weekend getaway to Bangkok, go on a cultural trail and learn about its heritage. From learning a traditional Thai dance at Graffiti Park to making your own flower bracelets, partake in the numerous activities on offer for an immersive cultural experience. Do not miss the chance to experience traditional Thai festivals if your holiday coincides with one. For example, Songkran is an annual event marking the Traditional Thai New Year, usually celebrated throughout Thailand from 13 to 15 April. The pouring of water is part of the cleansing ritual to welcome the new year, and is also a show of blessings and good wishes. Be prepared to get very wet when you visit Thailand during this period!
