Things to do in Bangkok
Bangkok is a fascinating, exciting, and awesome place to visit. Like most major cities in the world, it never sleeps, and you’ll always find an activity, bar, or restaurant to experience at any hour. What’s important to recognize is that even though you’ve come to Thailand to train and learn Muay Thai, you’re still going to have loads of time to do tourist activities and get the most out of your stay. If you’re not too tired from training, check out some of the activities that we like taking our gym members to do.
Asiatique The Riverfront -- a huge outdoor shopping complex with loads of trinkets, baubles, and other items to bring back home to your loved ones. There’s also Muay Thai fights here too!
Wat Phra Kaew “Temple of the Emerald Buddha” -- One of the largest and most beautiful temples in Bangkok. Tours are regularly scheduled throughout the day to come to this wonderful site. Get in touch with your spiritual side and take pictures with the magnificent Buddha located inside.
The Jim Thompson House -- Learn about the history of Thai Silk, and how pioneers from Britain came here in order to bring the resilient and high quality material back to England. The house itself dates back to the 19th century, and there is some serious history in these wooden halls.
Lumpini Park -- The largest park in Bangkok. If you’re tired of the endless traffic jams and the concrete jungle that is Bangkok, go for a run or simply walk through these naturesque grounds. The park has a variety of different flora and fauna to take pictures of and almost seems out of place in Bangkok. Well worth the visit.
Bangkok Dinner Cruise on the Chao Phraya River -- Bangkok is actually established around a winding, U-shaped river and there are a variety of dinner cruises that run through it. Finish training in the afternoon, head into the city, and hop on a beautiful boat for a traditional Thai dinner along Bangkok’s famous river.
The Grand Palace -- Located in the heart of the city, with Wat Phra Kaew within the complex, The Golden Palace is a series of royal buildings that date back to 1872. Learn more about the Thai Royal family and take a tour through a palace that has held multiple kings on its throne.
