Bangkok is a big city that offers several activities to visitors. If you are a solo traveler who are going to visit this city alone and finding activities that you can do alone in this city, you have come to the right place. I live in Bangkok and many times I enjoy going outside alone. In this post, I intend to share you the activities that you can enjoy on your own while wandering around Bangkok. Hope it helps.
Bangkok is a shopping paradise in Asia. You can find shopping malls and markets around the town. If you want to buy international products, just go to the shopping malls. Or if you want to buy cheap products and negotiate or bargain the price with the sellers, just go to the markets. If you love shopping, you can spend weeks in Bangkok. You can see the shopping places in Bangkok that I have visited in this blog category.
Explore the city by foot
Bangkok is not a great city for walking because of the weather. However, on a good day you can get to know this city by foot. You can see the recommended walking street in Bangkok here.
Parks are around in the city. You can choose the parks that can be reached by BTS Skytrain or MRT Subway such as Lumpini Park, Benjasiri Park, or Benjakitti Park. The parks are usually crowded in the morning and in the evening. Since Bangkok is hot and humid all year long, I do not recommend you to go to the parks in the afternoon.

Visit historical sites
You can spend time with palaces and temples around the town in order to learn the history of Bangkok and also Thailand. For me, The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew are must-see places in Bangkok. You can see the palaces and the temples in Bangkok that I have visited in this blog category.
Visiting museums is another way to get to know the city that we visit and you can do it on your own. Jim Thompson House Museum is the most popular one for tourist. Jim Thompson was an American architect who made Thai silk well-known around the world. You can see the museums in Bangkok that I have visited in this blog category.
Visit Art galleries
There are art galleries around the town. Some of them are big, while some of them are small. The biggest one is Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC) which is located at Pathumwan Intersection. You can go there by BTS Skytrain. The art galleries in Bangkok that I have visited can be found in this blog category.
