Why Is Bangkok Always Full Of Tourists?

Why Is Bangkok Always Full Of Tourists?

As you will have noticed, the time has come whereby holidays across the globe are now permitted, provided that the country in question is not on the no-fly list. After twelve months of being confined in your home, it is understandable that you will want to get away to somewhere that is exotic, sunny, and has plenty to do. In Bangkok, you have a city that fulfils all of these criteria, hence why it has always been regarded as a top-tier tourist destination. If you continue your reading down below, you can learn a little more about Travlock Limited’s suggestions on where you should visit.

Wat Phra Chetuphon

For those of you that have taken the time to take a look at classic travel guides prior to booking your flight to Bangkok airport, you will likely be familiar with Wat Phra Chetuphon. Sometimes referred to as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, this is considered to be one of Thailand’s most recognisable and well-visited landmarks. Having stood for more than three hundred years, we guarantee that you will be in awe of the spectacular architecture that is on display when you visit. 

Burma Railway

Although this is not technically situated particularly close to Bangkok city centre, there are enough methods of transport available for you to make your way to the Burma Railway with ease. In case you weren’t already aware, this goes by another name - the Death Railway - and it is not hard to see why. During World War II, more than one hundred thousand individuals lost their lives during the construction process. The tragic history that is associated with this railway means that it is more-than deserving of a visit; from a cultural standpoint, few ‘attractions’ come close to the significance of the Burma Railway.

Siam Paragon

If you are someone that is staying in central Bangkok, and want to enjoy a little bit of downtime, we recommend that you head directly to Siam Paragon. Despite what you might think, this shopping centre is unlike anything you will have seen in the United Kingdom. Covering more than four million square foot, all of which is dedicated to retail establishments, you can be rest-assured that you won’t know where to look from the moment that you walk in. With prices for products traditionally lower than their British counterparts, it won’t take long to find some excellent bargains.

The Grand Palace

Whilst we have already touched upon the spectacle that is Wat Phra Chetuphon, we would be remiss if we did not take a moment to highlight the incredible complex that is The Grand Palace. Originally, this was used as a base of operations for not only the Thai monarchy, but also the sitting government. However, it is now seen to be a hub for all foreign tourists, and this is in-part due to the fact that there is an abundance of buildings to explore. Though you won’t have time to see everything, you would be foolish to not give it your best shot.
