Things to Do on a Solo Trip in Bangkok

Here's a list of Things to Do on a Solo Trip in Bangkok recommended by our experts:

Solo tripping has never been more fun than in the city of Bangkok! Bangkok is the capital of Thailand famous for its vibrant street life and numerous modern and religious attractions dotting its landscape. The city continues to attract millions of travellers from around the world, as they make their way through the bustling city of gigantic skyscrapers, grand palaces and gleaming temples, ornate shrines and world-renowned floating markets. Filled with boats, Chao Phraya River feeds its network of canals as it meanders past the Rattanakosin royal district. Rattanokosin is where the opulent Grand Palace is located, together with Wat Phra Kaew Temple, or the Temple of The Emerald Buddha. Wat Pho Temple nearby charms you with the largest reclining Buddha. Wat Arun Temple on the opposite riverside has the most stunning atmosphere and makes for a gorgeous sight at sundown, with its Khmer-style, colourful spire. Tradition and modernity, the poor and mega rich, backpackers’ paradise and hub for elites, all sit harmoniously alongside each other - the city of contrasts packs great vibes and so much liveliness, with action at every turn. More than just a starting point for your complete Thai vacation, Bangkok shows visitors a time of their lives with the most fun and entertainment, and memories of experiences that stay with you long after you have left the city. Options for shopping range from mega air conditional malls to tiny stalls at street night markets and at Chatuchak Weekend Market. Of course, no visit to Bangkok is complete without exploring its famous nightlife and party culture – from high octane decadence at night clubs, exotic bars and lounges to cabaret entertainment, the city never ceases to amaze partygoers! Bangkok has something for everyone, from its museums and temples to its delightful street markets and shopping malls, palaces, beautiful architecture and enviable nightlife.
