Bangkok: Top things you must do ( Part 2)

11) Marvel at the Grand Palace

One of the most sacred places in Thailand, the Grand Palace is a masterpiece of Thai architecture and a fine example of creativity and amazing craftsmanship. Make sure you explore this incredible place during your next Bangkok tour.

 12) Unwind yourself

Ah! Thai massage is famous across the world! And what better place to rejuvenate with a Thai massage than the heart of Thailand. All you have to do is simply lie back and the masseuse will take care of the knots, leaving you feel more relaxed… After all that’s what a vacation is all about!

 13) Try the fish for foot care

As you walk around the city, you will find many fish spas where fish tanks are placed on the floor (sometimes on the sidewalks). Don’t mistake them for seafood stalls. These are spas that offer you skin exfoliation by Grecian fish. Simply soak your feet in the tank and let the little fish nibble your dead skin away, leaving the skin soft and smooth. And FYI, it doesn’t hurt at all, just feels like vibration or tickling sensation.

Lumphini Park is a spectacular sight of green space replete with playground, trees and flowering plants that surround an artificial lake. Stroll down this park, revel in its beauty and watch the world go by lying back on the grass. You can even tour the lake by renting a boat.

18) Wildlife expedition at Safari World

Go on a wildlife safari to explore the two zones of the Safari World – Safari Park and Marine Park. This open zoo and the marine park is a great place to get an insight into wild animals.
