The Grand Palace
Once home to the royal family of Thailand, the Grand Palace has become one of the top attractions in Bangkok. Located on a land that's over 54 acres, it is one of the most beautiful royal palaces in all of history. Its walls are gold-plated and there are plenty of beautiful paintings and sculptures that could captivate the eyes.
You can also visit the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, which is located at the palace. It is the most popular temple in the area.
If you intend on visiting Thailand, you better prepare yourself for one hell of a gastronomic experience. Some of the best Asian dishes can be found in Thailand. The best part is that you can get them on the streets and not in some expensive restaurant.
Thailand is home to a wide variety of street food that's well-known all throughout the entire world. The flavors and the types of Thai food are all diverse because of how the culture is influenced by several Asian and even Western countries. However, the common element in all of the food in Thailand is that they always have the five main tastes: spicy, sweet, salty, bitter, and sour. It will always be an explosion of flavor whenever you dig into one of Thailand's best street dishes.
Bangkok is home to some of the best shopping markets you can find in Southeast Asia. There are high-end shopping malls and open-air night markets. Each has its own unique variety of goods. There are even floating markets that are also as diverse in their products as any other kind of market in Bangkok. It's worth an experience of a lifetime to go to those floating markets where you can find merchants rowing boats filled with goods and products.
If you are planning to spend good nights in one of your trips, then Bangkok is the place for you. The Bangkok nightlife is just as colorful as the city itself.
