What to do in Bangkok

Watch a Muay Thai fight

If you want to see an authentic Muay Thai fight, head to Sanam Muay Rajadamnern, also known as Ratchadamnoen Stadium, one of the best venues in Bangkok. Make sure you buy tickets from an official vendor, then sit in the first tier with other tourists, or head upstairs to mix with the hardcore fans of the sport.

Visit the temples

Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn, is Thailand’s most famous temple, and the best time to see it is at sunrise or sunset. You can get up close by paying a small fee to walk up the central stairs. Another temple worth visiting is Wat Traimit, which houses a solid gold Buddha weighing more than five tonnes.

Take on the Escape Hunt

Based on the massively popular online ‘Escape the Room’ games, the Escape Hunt is a real-life version that’s causing quite a stir in Bangkok. Teams of up to five players have to escape a room by solving clues – tense, family-friendly fun and completely different.

Shop at Chatuchak Weekend Market

A visit to the Chatuchak Weekend Market could mean you’ll have to splash out on extra luggage for the flight home. It’s packed with stalls selling everything from pretty lamps to souvenir T-shirts, with loads of street food to keep you fuelled up. Thais and tourists come here to bag a bargain.

Floating markets

One of the most iconic images of Bangkok is that of locals on their boats at the floating markets. There are a few different ones to choose from: check out Taling Chan, Tha Kha and Bang Ku Wiang markets for starters. If you want to watch rather than shop, book a Damnoen Saduak market boat tour.

Visit Bang Krachao Island

Well worth a trip out of the city centre, Bang Krachao is a place where life hearkens back to a simpler time. Hire a bike or stroll around the buildings while trying some of the fresh produce sold at various stalls and shops. Lush gardens and small temples make this a relaxing antidote to the busyness of central Bangkok. Check out the temple Wat Bang Krachao Klang.

Rossini's (Italian)

Located at the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit, this Italian has long been a Bangkok fine-dining favourite. The interior makes you feel as though you could be sat in a Tuscan restaurant, but it is the food that steals the show. Leave room for dessert: chocolate foie gras mousse served with foie gras ice cream and fig brule.

Mango Vegetarian & Vegan Restaurant and Arts Gallery (Vegetarian/Fusion)

This vegan and vegetarian restaurant near Khao San Road is the best place in the city to grab a healthy breakfast of muesli, homemade yoghurt and fresh fruit. It’s really popular with backpackers, who keep coming back for the fresh flavours, generous portions and to hang out with the resident kittens.

Tealicious (Thai)

Papa's Kitchen (American)

Have a hunger that only a big, juicy burger will satisfy? Papa’s Kitchen is the place to go. The menu also has ribs and seafood, but be under no illusion, it’s all about the burgers. Try the French Kiss, The Gov'nor, or the duck burger, which comes with camembert, wild berry sauce and rocket.

Asiatique The Riverfront (Night market)

Not so much a specific restaurant as a sprawling night market, this riverside destination has loads of different stalls, shops and eateries where you can sample a variety of local and international cuisine. Check out Ko Dang Talay Thai for some of the best seafood you can find in Bangkok.

Street Food (Ready-to-eat)

Some of the best food in Bangkok isn’t even served in a restaurant. Hit the streets and pick something that (a) looks delicious, (b) smells amazing or (c) is completely unfamiliar. An adventurous palate is part of the Bangkok experience, and it might just be the best food you ever have. You can find it everywhere, but check out the stalls around the busy Victoria Monument for starters.
