A paradise for travelers, Bangkok is known to many! People come from all over the world for the novel experiences, the food, or the culture that can only be had in Thailand. Although this wonderful country has so much to offer all over, we’ve only got 24 hours and we need to make every second count!
This is a bit difficult to recommend to someone since there are so many places all over the city! Since it’s only a day trip, I suggest either the Khao San or the Bangkok Riverside.
This area of the city is famous and actually made an appearance in the Book and Movie “The Beach”. This area is famous and is a great area for someone who likes to party! There is plentiful street food, backpackers, shops, and temples to really keep you busy while you’re here!
Khao San does have its drawbacks. Namely, it is loud and packed with people. It is also completely cut off from public transportation making it a bit inaccessible.
The Bangkok Riverside is just that, the banks of the Chao Praya river. From here you’ll have amazing views of the city’s temples and the Royal Palace. This area is where you will find more lavish accommodations but there are some budget options in the area! A great perk of this area is that the ferries are very accessible and they’re great to travel from and to landmarks along the river.
I’d say the only major drawback for this area is the price. Although it does have access to public transportation!
