Bangkok offers several activities for visitors on weekends. If you are going to visit Bangkok during weekends and are afraid that the city will be quiet and there will be nothing to do. Don’t worry. Bangkok is a city that never sleeps even at night. In this post, I intend to share you what to do in Bangkok on weekend. Hope this information will be useful for you.
Go to Chatuchak Weekend Market
Chatuchak is the biggest outdoor market in Bangkok and also in Thailand which is open fully only on weekend. This market offers visitors unique shopping experience. If you have only a weekend in Bangkok, I recommend you to go there. You can find more details of this market here.
Go to floating markets
Visiting Floating market is one of the popular activities for tourists and many floating markets are open only on weekend. The most famous market is Damnoen Saduak Floating Market which is located in Ratchaburi Province. However, you can go there from Bangkok as a day trip. If you do not want to go out of Bangkok, you can go to Taling Chan Floating Market. This one is smaller, but closer to city center of Bangkok.
Unlike many cities in the world, shopping malls in Bangkok are open daily from 10.00 am to 10 pm. So, you can go shopping, eating, and watching a movie on weekend. If you are a first time visitor to Bangkok, I recommend you to go to either Siam Paragon or Central World.
Go to temples
Most Temples in Bangkok are open every day and the temples usually are more crowded on weekends. If you choose to go to the temples, I recommend you to go early morning and join the activities with Buddhists.
Go to parks
Most parks in Bangkok are open both weekdays and weekends. However, you can expect more people on weekends especially in the morning. Many parks offer free fun activities such as such as Aerobics, Yoga, Qigong Exercises (a Chinese gentle and slow exercise).
