Take the sky train (BTS)
If you are travelling in Bangkok and you properly know that Bangkok is not that huge which means it is easy and convenient to get around but sometimes you get bored of the traffic during rush hours
The BTS could be your answer ! there is only one way to get around Bangkok at any speed whilst keeping cool and that is to jump aboard one of the sky trains. With air conditioned carriages there is no better way to get around. In most instances you are high above the traffic below giving you a view of the city but also the train takes the most direct route. With nearly every part of Bangkok you would want to visit having a train station, travel could not be simpler. Please note that you do not want to take the BTS during rushing hours….

Try eating the king of fruit Durian
Wait before making that face when it comes to Duriannn… You will probably smell it before you see it but Durian is known as the king of fruits. People either love it or hate it (it’s a really thin line between the two) with some public areas going as far as putting up signs that completely ban it. A durian fruit is distinct for many reasons, firstly its look, it looks like some kind of medieval weapon with its thorny outer shell or whatever you can imagine, and once the shell has been removed the insides are like this yellow vanilla creamy texture that some people say is the greatest fruit of all.
Try to go to rooftop bar in the city
There are various places in Bangkok where you can go for a drink at the end of the day especially before the sunset but none will have the view of Bangkok that the Vertigo and Moon bar has. Sitting on the 61st floor of the Banyan Tree hotel you can look out and see the beautiful skyline of Bangkok in all of its glory. As soon as you reach the top you are straight outside so this is not the place to be if you are afraid of heights, the designers have made the rooftop in such a way that you get a complete 360 degree view of the city with no obstructions. A little tips if you want to visit there are plenty of rooftop bars in the city that’s true but I would recommend you to call for a booking first…
