In spite of being a huge city, it is not impossible to see Bangkok in a couple of days. This immense city is an important tourist destination of Thailand, attracting millions of tourists and businessmen every year. Whether you are a tourist or a businessman spending just a couple of days in Bangkok, the following article will surely help you with some useful information.

Bangkok is abundant in landmarks, visitor attractions, museums, parks, cabaret theatres, bars, shopping spots, clubs and other venues. Which one to visit only depends on your preferences. If you would like to visit as many attractions as you can, make a plan in time or follow my advice relating to how to see Bangkok in 3 days.

Day 1

As I already mentioned it, the most important thing is to make a plan. If you don’t have one, you can use mine. First of all, it is important to find out which are the most prominent landmarks, parks, museums and shopping spots of the city. Than you have to make a selection of the desired attractions. The more attractions you choose to visit, the less time you will have for each of them. This is why organization is the key point.

If I were you, I would surely include the most significant landmarks of the city in my first day of visit, leaving shopping and entertainment for the following two days. As you surely know it (if not, I am telling you), the most representative and most popular landmarks of Bangkok are the following: the Grand Palace, the Khao San Road and the Temple of Dawn, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and the Erawan Museum.

Day 2

As for your second day of visit, you should have some fun. You can also visit some parks of the city and relax. As an idea, you can tour some parts of the city by bike. Visiting a city is not only about visiting its landmarks, it is also about getting in touch with local culture.

Go to at least one restaurant and taste the unique Thai food, go to a bar, relax in a Thai massage centre, enjoy a cabaret show, visit the interesting China town of the city or opt for a unique dinner cruise. Anything you would choose, I am absolutely sure you will enjoy the whole day, getting around in the city and trying out things you’ve never done before.

Day 3

I think that your third day of visit may be spent with some shopping tours. Bangkok is famous for its unique markets and shopping malls. You will surely want to buy some excellent souvenirs and gifts before you return home. Well, it’s time to do it.

From the unique floating market to immense, ultra modern shopping malls, Bangkok is abundant in shopping spots. Which one to choose only depends on what items you are looking for. The MBK Shopping Mall and the Chatuchak Weekend Market are just two of the most famous spots for shopping.
