3 Days in Bangkok: Suggested Itineraries

By Viator, November 2016

4.5 3195 Reviews | Add your review

Bangkok's exciting blend of historical landmarks, stellar food, and rapid modernization draws millions of visitors every year, which is no surprise given the hundreds of temples to see, the unique floating markets to visit, and the many shopping centers to explore. Here's how you can make the most of your time on a three-day trip to Thailand's capital city.

Day 1: Grand Palace Tour
Take in the sprawling Grand Palace complex and its biggest draw: the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, which contains the holiest Buddha in Thailand, a 26-inch (66-cm) masterpiece carved from only one piece of jade.

Day 2: Bangkok Rose Garden
The Rose Garden Cultural Centre, 20 miles (32 km) out of Bangkok, is a great chance to connect with rural Thai culture and craft. Witness silk-weaving, pottery making, umbrella painting, doll making, fruit carving, and the crafting of silverware. Also expect to see traditional Thai costumes, a busy Thai market and Thai houses. The village offers a range of cultural entertainment too, such as Thai kickboxing, sword fighting, and Thai dances.

Day 3: Floating Markets
Take a step back in time and enjoy a traditional floating market set along the canal. You can take a ride through marsh and the stilted houses of Bangkok in a speed boat before heading to the markets themselves. Your guide will help you with the language barrier and navigation through the maze of boats.
