When you plan your timeshare vacation to Bangkok, don’t miss these 5 places for the best experience.
Famous in Thailand during his lifetime, Jim Thompson disappeared into the jungles of Malaysia in 1967, never to return. His home has been turned into both a museum and a tribute to a bigger than life personality.
If you decide to visit this temple, know that you need to wear appropriate clothing. Items such as skirts, shorts, sandals and revealing clothing are not allowed. If you’re wearing prohibited clothing items, sarongs are available for use by visitors.
#3) Chinatown. Travelers have pronounced Bangkok’s Chinatown to be one of the most electric, vibrant areas in an already spirited city. It’s a place filled with food vendors, markets and temples. One of the most famous ones is Wat Traimit, home of a 700 year old 5 ½ ton Buddha (see top photo), the largest one in the world.
There’s also Mangkon Kalawat, a very busy temple that’s always filled with incense and worshipers.
If you’re a snake lover, the Snake Farm houses over 35 species, a 100 seat arena that’s set aside for venom extraction and snake handling shows for the brave. If you and snakes aren't on the best of terms, the indoor facility features a museum and an exhibition about snake evolutionary history and medicine, a research center and interactive demonstrations.
The island doesn't have the urban, gritty feel of Bangkok’s mainland. The roads are largely free of traffic, there’s an overarching rural feel to the bike friendly area and the island is so small that the entire place can be traveled by foot.
From its temples to its snake sanctuaries, Bangkok is one of the liveliest epicenters of the Asian continent. Going to some or all of these tourist destinations could give you a rarefied glimpse into the world of a spiritual, peace loving culture.
