Traveling For Holidays in Bangkok
Bangkok is the largest city and capital of Thailand and with a population of well over 11 million people, it is also one of the largest cities in all of Asia. IT is also where all the major festivals of Thailand are held, making it a very fun place to be. There is a vibrant (and often raunchy) nightlife, beautiful temples, friendly people (for the most part), and peaceful parks.
There are a ton of things to see and do in Bangkok so lets get started. Wat Phra Kaew is one of the first places you should visit because it embodies the culture of Bangkok and Thailand as a whole. Wat Phra Kaew is one of the most sacred temples in the city and contains an Emerald Buddha statue, which is one of the most sacred Buddha statues in Bangkok. Another popular tourist destination is Lumphini Park, which is one of the largest parks in the city and a great place for some rest and relaxation.
Another place all tourists should see is Wat Pho. Wat Pho contains the biggest reclining Buddha image on Earth. It is a really cool spectacle and a must-see for any tourist. You should also attend at least one major festival during your holidays in Bangkok. My personal favorite is the Songkran festival, where people in the streets throw water at each other (it’s a lot of fun). Other major festivals include Loy Krathong, Royal Ploughing Ceremony, and the Chinese New Year festival.
