Day Trips You Can Take From Bangkok

Bangkok is that friend of yours who can be sophisticated yet still casual and authentic. It could be the elaborate temple complexes you explore during the day and the massive markets that drown you in all types of aroma, lights, and sounds at night. Whether you are here for a cultural adventure or a beach getaway, you won’t want to miss the day trips that make up the Thai spirit. 

Here are the different places to visit in Bangkok and beyond:



Buy Your Souvenirs at Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

Shop and eat like a local at the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. This floating market continues to attract tourists, so you have to be here early. Your boat will snake through narrow canals while eschewing other boats, taking you to different stores on both sides of the canal. You can buy straw hats, wares, vegetables and fruits.

Marvel at the Erawan Falls at Sai Yok National Park. Visit the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery and the World War II Museums.
