The streets of Bangkok


The busy streets of Bangkok reminded me of Lagos, Nigeria. Colourful, vibrant and oh so noisy. From the sound of the tuk-tuks, to the street vendors selling traditional cold fruits by the road side; I decided instantly that Bangkok is like marmite, you either love it or hate it.





  

If you are planning a trip to Thailand, you definitely want to spend at least 1 or 2 days in Bangkok before you set off island hopping. I've listed a few places to explore in Bangkok below.

1. China town
China town is a vibrant market in Bangkok where you can grab yourself a bargain, the night market usually opens from 6pm upwards. China town is not for the faint hearted, take a drink with you and a practical rucksack instead of that treasured Gucci bag.




2. Asiatique night Market
Asiatique market is a smaller version of a night market, its definitely more up-market than China town, with slightly more sophisticated kiosks and good everyday bargains.




3. Grand Palace
If you want to visit somewhere a bit more touristy in Bangkok, the Grand palace will tick all boxes. There is a strict dress code for ladies, shoulders and knees must be covered before you enter the palace; This is definitely a good venue for photo ops.



4. Visit a Rooftop bar
Bangkok has some of the coolest rooftop bars in the city; I stayed at Avani Riverside in Bangkok, which has a really cool rooftop bar overlooking the Chao Phraya river.
A good rooftop bar offers the perfect ariel view of Bangkok city.



Bangkok is a city that offers lots of variety; from food to local entertainment and culture. It's a city like any other; busy, lively but definitely not for the faint hearted.
