Aboard a Tuk Tuk or by boat, Bangkok is a city to be discovered fully. From the Skytrain to a simple bicycle, here are the best ways to live the city’s different souls.
At first glance, Bangkok hits us with its confusion, colours and smells of a city that is continuously growing, suspended between modernity and secular history. Its wealth lies in the contrasts and parallel lives of those working in the skyscrapers wearing a suit and tie and those who sell tropical fruit from a boat at the river market. What is the most authentic side? From rooftop bars to street food, this is Bangkok; you must go out and join the crowd, breathing in the chaos of the busy streets and the colours of the stalls.
On foot, by bike, on board a super quick Tuk Tuk or along the river with a water taxi, for each destination there is the right means of transport.
The Tuk Tuk it is one of the most popular means of transport in Bangkok, and has become very popular among visitors. This vehicle is very practical for getting around the city and provides visitors with a unique experience that will lead them to discover the history and culture of the city.
To get to know true, traditional Thai life, you can hire a traditional wooden boat or use a water taxi to get around the city as if you were in the Venetian lagoon; in fact, the Chao Phraya River creates a network of canals (klongs), which for centuries have been the only means of access to the city.
One the best ways to get to know a city is to experience all the aspects of its culture, gastronomic tradition included; in Bangkok, there is nothing more traditional than street food. To taste the best local dishes, walk around Chinatown, the so called Yaowarat in the local language, where you can find hundreds of stalls, markets and restaurants ready to offer an authentic dining experience.
One of the best ways to discover the city of Bangkok is by bike, to unveil the lesser-known corners and find yourself by chance in some truly authentic locations. By bicycle, you can reach the heart and soul of Bangkok.
It is one of the must-do gourmand experiences in Bangkok: a river cruise aboard a vintage boat where you can dine in true Thai style and admire the sunset over the most iconic places in the city along the Chao Phraya River, like the Wat Pho and Wat Arun temples, in addition to the vast complex of the Grand Palace, one of the most popular attractions of the city.
Damnoen Saduak floating markets are a distinctive cultural aspect of the Ratchaburi province and are known by travellers from around the world. Here you can negotiate the price of vegetables and fresh fruit and watch the floating canoes in the city’s canals. These markets give off all the magic of the Thai tradition.
