One Night in Bangkok
I have traveled to Bangkok, Thailand twice and we are returning in the summer of 2018. When I was there the first two times, I was traveling with my husband. He was there on business and I tagged along. I did most of the site-seeing by myself as he had to work. I also spent countless hours getting Thai massages and Thai foot massages.
Bangkok is the capital of Thailand and has an estimated population of over eleven million. It is crowded, traffic is constant, and the temperature is always hot. However, if you love great food, exploring temples and palaces, and shopping – – you should definitely put Bangkok on your travel list.
I love Bangkok and tried to convince my husband to move there as he had an option to do so with his job. Sadly, I could not convince him to give up watching real-time USA sports (basketball, football, baseball (college and professional). With the time difference, he would have to record everything.
Top five things to see/do in Bangkok:
- Grand Palace
- Wat Pho
- Chatachuck Weekend Market
- Wat Arun
- Visit at least one spa. Spas are everywhere and range from luxury to low end. However, even the luxury spas seemed reasonable to me compared to the costs of the ones in the USA.
I mostly met up with my husband at dinner time. One of the restaurants we dined in was Cabbages & Condoms. Cabbages & Condoms is one of the most unique restaurants in Metropolitan Bangkok. The restaurant concept has attracted international attention for its concept to promote better understanding and acceptance of family planning and to generate income to support various development activities of the Population and Community Development Association (PDA).
