Looking to spend some time in Bangkok? A city like no other in the world, it will entice, enchant, lure you with smells then kiss you goodbye. If you are looking to experience some truly memorable moments in Thailand, start with Bangkok. We’ve compiled a list and here are the unique things to see and do in Bangkok.
A Night With the Ladyboys
Synonyms with Thailand are the fabled ladyboys; half man, half woman? All man in all woman’s clothes? All woman with an unusual Adam’s apple? You need to see it to believe it and from there you can draw your own conclusions. In dark rooms with loud music and enough glitter to make Barbie jealous you can get up close and personal with the excitement and entertainment of this cabaret-style show. Looking to test the water, check out the family friendly Playhouse cabaret. Looking to jump in with both feet, take in a night at Mambo Cabaret.
Scorpio on a Stick
If you’ve never tried a meal that might bite you back, Bangkok is the place for this one of a kind experience. If it creeps or crawls you can likely find it fried and for sale on the street side. Anything from the humble cricket or grasshopper to a tasty bamboo worm or the slightly more intimidating scorpion on a stick. There are countless places to try these out around the well known backpacker zone, Khao San Road. Remember your camera, these are moments you’ll want to share with the world.
Shopping to Amaze You
Anything you could possible want to buy or even things you never knew you wanted to buy can be found in mammoth quantities at the Chatuchak weekend market. With more than eight-thousand stalls and around two hundred-thousand visitors on a weekend, it’s not for those just looking to just pick up a couple bananas. It has it all and you could fill a sea can full of artwork, food & drink, pets, clothes, the list goes on and on. Wear comfortable shoes and clear your schedule for the day, it’s going to be a big one.
Go for a Drink at Dizzying Heights
For an uncompromised view of Bangkok city that is almost out of this world, check out Moon bar. A posh bar that sits on the 61st floor of Banyan Tree hotel, offering 360o views of the city that can’t be beat. If you’re looking to settle your vertigo they even offer a drink for that, order up the Vertigo Sunset to settle you down.
If you are looking to fill your news feed with photos for your friends and stories to fill in the blanks at cocktail parties, Bangkok is sure to fill that need. Forever changing and currently at a cross road of new and old world. Fun, food and fantasy it is a travelers must stop in or out of Asia.
