Bangkok day trips

Ancient temples swallowed by the jungle, rice paddies, local markets, stunning beaches, fiery cuisine, smoking incense at the feet of a golden Buddha, and the friendliest locals around.

Bangkok day trips

Postby renesaunce » Mon Jun 19, 2017 1:23 am

Is it better to sign up for day trips in advance or when you get there? And if I have 5 nights in Bangkok, should I do more than 2 days of day trips?

I would wait until you get there to sign up for the day trips. Bangkok is a great city with lots to do, I would only do two days of day trips when there

I would wait until you get there before you go booking up 5 days worth of activities. From what I've heard from friends and from off the internet, is that Bangkok is a little like Marmite. You either hate it or love it. Chances are when you get there you will want to get straight out of there. I have a 5+ week trip to Thailand in October and I will only be staying the 1 night in bangkok because I'll be going back to Bangkok another 2 times along my travels

Agree with all, wait until you get there and see how you feel with the place. Maybe take a tour on the first day to get familiar with the place and you'll have a chance to ask the guide any questions. If you feel comfortable then venture out yourself one day and maybe book another trip later.

Happy Travels!
