Bangkok is a city for people of all ages. If you are going to visit this city with your parents and are worried about the place to bring your parents to visit, this post is for you. In this post, I am going to share an itinerary to visit in Bangkok with them.
Day 1: Visit historical and religious places
The historical and religious places that you must visit in Bangkok are The Grand Palace, Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Pho, and Wat Arun. Luckily, all these 4 places are located in the same area, so you can visit them in one day. The first 3 places are on the same side of the riverbank, while the last one is located on the opposite side. I recommend you to start the day early and start at The Grand Palace in order to avoid a long queue.
For the relax place around, I recommend you to visit Tha Maharaj or Asiatique The Riverfront. The latter is open only in the evening.
Day 2: Visit a floating market
Visiting a floating market is one of the activities that is usually included in the itinerary of a first-time traveler to Bangkok. The floating market is normally open only on the weekend. The most popular one is Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, but this one takes around a two-hour drive from Bangkok.
The closer one is Taling Chan Floating Market, but it is not as big as the first one. Choose the one that suits your preference.
Day 3: Go shopping
Bangkok is awesome for shopping because there are many malls and markets around the city. My recommendation is to go shopping at Chatuchak Weekend Market, which is the biggest outdoor market in Bangkok and also in Thailand. This market sells almost everything you have ever wanted and gives visitors a unique shopping experience.
Another shopping place that you should visit if you plan to buy trendy clothing or accessories is The Platinum Fashion Mall. This shopping mall consists of 2 big buildings and it takes more than a day to visit all the shops in the building.
