When you visit Bangkok, there’s always something new and exciting to discover. In fact, even if you were born and raised in this beautiful city, new experiences are still out there for you to discover. If you are planning to visit this beautiful city, trying to experience everything at once might be a little too much to do. Because of this, we’re going to tell you what you need to experience when you travel to Bangkok, Thailand.
Here are the three experiences you cannot miss out on in Bangkok:
1. The Wild Transportation Service
One of the experiences we’re sure you won’t miss out on is the wild and energetic transportation services that you can find around Bangkok.
First, the speedy Tuk Tuk is a ride that you cannot miss. If you’re brave enough, hail one as you travel from one place to another. You’ll soon find yourself amidst traffic zipping left and right as the wind rushes over your body as the driver slips into every gap he can fit the ride in. When you arrive at your destination, be sure to take a deep breath and fix your hair!
Second, the motorbike taxis in Bangkok are just as wild as the Tuk Tuk. Furthermore, traffic won’t be a problem for these drivers. If you’re in absolute hurry to go anywhere, the motorbike taxi is your solution. They’ll drive between cars and make their way to the front of the traffic. Before you know it, you’ll have arrived at your place.
2. The Rush of Muay Thai
If you want to experience the most heart-pumping sport imaginable, pay a visit to a Muay Thai stadium. While it was used as a form of combat, it has now become a nation-wide sport. It has become so famous that you’ll find the word “Muay Thai” around the world, whether in a gym or at a competition.
If you want a hand at Muay Thai, you can take up some training courses, offering both basic and extensive training sessions. If you’d rather watch and marvel at this sport, there are stadiums in Bangkok that you can do so. Don’t be surprised if you start going “ooh” or “aah” along with the crowd.
3. The Stunning Traditional Thai Culture
While you might see Thais hooked on the latest phones and busy communicating with their friends and loved ones on social media platforms, the Thai tradition has never left. In fact, Bangkok is one of the best places in the country to experience harmony between modern and traditional.
Amidst the towering skyscrapers, you’ll find temples of old. Around the biggest malls, you’ll see old shophouses and traditional restaurants. Every morning, despite the rush of people getting to their work, you’ll find monks walking around and the people giving alms. Bangkok is the ultimate symbol of taking a step to the future without forgetting the past.
Bangkok, the city of angels in the land of smiles, is home to unending experiences. From the frenzy of rush hour to the hype of Muay Thai, there are plenty of things to see, do, and feel here in this city that never sleeps. If you’re planning to come to Bangkok, we hope you’re staying for the long haul. There’s just so much to do here that you don’t want to miss!
