Things to Do in Bangkok
Bangkok is a microcosm of Thailand, demonstrating division between the traditional and modern ways of life. Rickshaws share the roads with high-end luxury vehicles, and noodle carts exist side-by-side with Western fast food restaurants. One of the main attractions in Bangkok is the giant reclining Buddha. For a taste of the city's ancient grandeur, visit the Grand Palace or wander around the grounds of the ornate Wat Pho. Eat like a local from one of the many food carts that are scattered around the city, and experience the rush of a tuk-tuk ride through the city's chaotic streets. For a unique view of old and new Bangkok, take a cruise around the city's waterways. If you need a taste of home, simply head to one of Bangkok's ultra-modern malls to enjoy the air conditioning and watch a Western movie before heading back out to explore the exotic, exciting city.
Whether you are traveling across Southeast Asia or across the world, ebookers can help you find the best deals on flights to Bangkok.
Bangkok When to Go
Bangkok’s seasons can be determined by the level of heat: very hot, really wet, warm and sticky, or reasonably hot. The high season from November through March claims the latter description. Many from the northern hemisphere swap winter for the Southeast Asian shores (with the requisite stopover in Bangkok). In general, Bangkok’s high season stretches till May.
November evening skies sparkle with the brilliant displays of the Loi Krathong Festival of Light. Based on 13th-century Brahmin origins, locals give thanks to the Goddess of Water and seek forgiveness for naughty deeds. You’ll find Thais and foreigners alike out by the Chao Phraya riverside setting candlelit floats into the water with a prayer. The festival is celebrated at various points along the river so that everyone has the chance to set his or her own krathong into the water.
Mid-April signals the Thai New Year, or Songkran, a nonstop, three-day festival where revelers take to the streets with water guns and buckets—a modern-day interpretation of when a Buddhist monk sprinkled water on people as a token of good luck. This also comes at the start of the shoulder season—and the start of monsoons, reinforcing the fact that the high point of Songkran is getting wet (literally, like you have just spent the day at a water park).
The really rainy months of June through October indicate low season in Bangkok. Let’s just say it seems like the Songkran on steroids during the monsoons. There have been recorded episodes of near-constant rains for two months straight. Lots of rain and humidity can make for a miserable combination for some people, but the Thais just let it roll off their backs. August and September generally get the wettest, sometimes with floods reaching knee-deep depths in busy town streets. Pack an umbrella and a light trash-bag-like poncho; the muggy temps will prove a heavy raincoat useless.
