Katherine's Travel Tips for Bangkok

What are the best places to eat and drink in Bangkok?

We were worried that Jay Fai (the Michelin-starred spot) would be overhyped... it definitely was not! We loved everything we ate there! We also really liked the rooftop bar at the Banyan Tree - innovative cocktails and the view is stunning!

Take a cooking class. Our class was in Phuket, but there were a lot of opportunities to cook food with unique ingredients and tools in Bangkok as well. It’s a lot of fun and it tastes amazing!

Cassandra's Travel Tips for Bangkok

What is your best overall travel tip for Bangkok?

Stay in a nice hotel for your first few nights if you are coming in from a long flight -- the service will be excellent and after being cramped for 12+ hours, you really want to be as comfortable as possible.

If you are going to visit Wat Pho or the Grand Palace either for a shoot or on your own, go right when they open. You will both beat the crowds and see the temples in the early morning glow!

Tricia's Travel Tips for Bangkok

What is your best overall travel tip for Bangkok?

For Bangkok, I would suggest visiting the Wat’s early as there are not as many visitors and you can beat the midday heat. For Chiang Mai, I would suggest to experience the night market and to not miss an elephant experience.

Michelle's Travel Tips for Bangkok

What is your best overall travel tip for Bangkok?

Must go to Chiang Rai to see White, Blue and Black temples. If you are brave, drive like the locals on motorbikes in Bangkok. Moon Bar in Bangkok (you wont be disappointed). The elephant nature park in Chiang Mai (do the full day walking package). If you are up for a luxurious resort check out Anantara Riverside and get a massage (one of the best massages I've had). If you are certified check out Aussie Divers and do their 3 dive tour to Phi Phi Islands, Koh Bida Nok and Shark Point (the coral reefs are sooo vibrant). Thai cooking class and temples in bangkok (Wat Arun, Wat Pho and Grand Palace).

Donald's Travel Tips for Bangkok

What is your best overall travel tip for Bangkok?

Loved my stay at Hotel Maduzi in Bangkok (www.maduzihotel.com) from its beautiful interior to the great quality of service and the delicious food they offer at their restaurant. Also a must visit for a drink and the most stunning panoramic views of the city at sunset from Sky Bar - Lebua at State Tower. Also Riverside - 63rd Floor and Octave Rooftop Bar - Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit, all these are must visit rooftops. Also a visit to Chinatown is a must and the floating markets

What is your best overall travel tip for Bangkok?

Go during cooler months from Nov -march. Near Bangkok, there is a small floating market (khlong lad mayom) which is a delight to visit and if you have kids do not miss a river boat ride followed by a visit to the Artisan's house where they have a very educational and entertaining authentic Thai puppetry show.

One of our favorite activities was taking a food tour around Bangkok at night - by Tuk Tuk, of course! This is great way to sample a lot of different foods and to learn about Thai cooking, so I suggest doing this early in your trip.

Valerie's Travel Tips for Bangkok

What is your best overall travel tip for Bangkok?

We traveled with young kids so we made sure to plan things early in the morning to give ourselves time to get back to the hotel for naps. After nap time we were back out on the streets enjoying street food and all the local sights. The aquarium, malls, and pools made it easy to escape the heat for a couple hours during the hotter days.

Jenni's Travel Tips for Bangkok

What is your best overall travel tip for Bangkok?

Bangkok is very hot and humid, so be sure to bring light and airy clothing, but also remember to bring some clothing that covers your shoulders and knees if you want visit some of the 60+ temples in the city--and you will want to. The temples are beautiful. Bangkok is a city of contrast, so be sure to take time for both the impressive, modern city filled with shopping and dining and all the modern amenities as well as the the more traditional markets and temples and street food.

Bangkok is something! You’ll always be looking at all the temples, trying to comunicate, amazed with the traffic and all the buddist pagodas.. and you wont have time or will forget to take good pictures for future memories. So we strongly recommend to book a flytographer there!
