Experience Bangkok with us

It’s same same but different in this fast-paced city where the traditional and commercial collide. While the charm of Old Bangkok survives in the city’s vibrant floating markets, gold Buddhist temples, and centuries-old villages, New Bangkok boasts neon-lit strips, skyscrapers, and megamalls. Bangkok Tours is about taking the city’s rapid momentum in their stride, the people of Bangkok also move fast - with Thailand’s streets a never-ending barrage of cars, motorbikes, and Tuk Tuks. The atmosphere of Thailand’s capital isn’t just confined to the streets. Bangkok’s residents are known for their love of all things entertainment, with locals fun-loving nature seen most in the nightlife and foodie-scenes spread across the city.

Our tips for Bangkok

  • Chatuchak it out. These weekend markets are one of Bangkok’s finest, offering antiques, art, clothing and much more. One of the lesser-known Bangkok attractions, this 35-acre market village has it all.
  • See the golden goose. Known as the Golden Buddha, to be precise. Housed in an impressive 13th century temple, this majestic site should go straight to the top of your Bangkok sightseeing itinerary.
  • Take some Bangkok day trips. When considering what to do in Bangkok, keep in mind that the white-sand beaches found on Thailand postcards are well within reach from the capital. We recommend visiting Ko Samet Island, its paradise beaches are just over three hours from Bangkok.

Good to know

Best time to visit
The cooler months of December and January is Bangkok’s peak tourist season, when weather is most pleasant but prices are less so. Try a visit in November or late February for relatively cool weather sans the crowds. A year-round destination, there’s still plenty of things to do in Bangkok outside the peak tourist season, we promise.
Getting around
Navigating this city requires a healthy dose of street smarts. Here’s our travel breakdown of the best ways to find your way through Bangkok.
  • You can’t leave Bangkok without a ride on a Tuk Tuk, a semi-enclosed motorised rickshaw. Use this iconic vehicle for shorter rides not worth the extra taxi fare.
  • For those looking to keep spending to a minimum on their Bangkok day tours, the BTS sky train operates frequently around the ‘New Bangkok’ districts of Silom, Sukhumvit and Siam Sq with very reasonable ticket prices.
  • Bangkok’s taxis are well priced and a great way from getting to A to B if you’re in a hurry. Drivers are courteous, although be sure to only enter taxis with a meter to avoid being overcharged.
Stay Safe
Bangkok is a relatively safe city, although you should always exercise caution when visiting somewhere new. Keep these travel tips in tow so your trip can go off without a hitch…
  • On your Bangkok tours, be wary of rip-off merchants in the form of cheap-fare Tuk Tuk drivers and ‘helpful’ locals who often try to lure locals on detours to commission-paying gem and silk shops. Remember, if price fares seem too good to be true, they probably are. Book with a registered tour provider before travel to ensure you’re not taken advantage of.
  • In an emergency, dial the Tourist Police on 1155 or general emergency services on 191.
  • Bangkok’s drivers rarely give way to pedestrians, so be sure to look both ways before crossing any street.
