Insider Tip—Relax and Re-energize in Bangkok

January 9, 2015 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , , ,

Bangkok is big and boisterous but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Here is our recommendation on how travelers can recuperate from that long flight while still taking time to enjoy the highlights of Bangkok’s amazing riverside attractions.

Bangkok can be an intimidating city to visit, but it doesn’t have to be this way! After contending with a long flight and jetlag, it is best to advise visitors to take it slow the first few days, especially those traveling with children. Bangkok boasts some outstanding resort hotels, several with a scenic riverside location, that cater to all tastes and budgets.

The public boats of the public river taxi service are the perfect way to see the city, with several of the main sights located a short walk from the piers on the Chao Phraya River. After a half-day touring the Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun, our teams can recommend some fantastic riverside restaurants nearby for a relaxed lunch.

Bangkok really comes to life in the evening. In order to enjoy the evening’s activities, it’s best for guests to get out of the tropical heat and relax at their hotel for a couple of hours in the afternoon. At night, after daytime temperatures have cooled down, it is time for dinner in one of Bangkok’s renowned restaurants or a walking or cycling tour around Bangkok’s historic district and fascinating markets.

We believe visitors should allow enough time to enjoy all that Bangkok has to offer and recuperate from the long flight. Bangkok can then be the perfect springboard to a rewarding and invigorating holiday!
