Bangkok, Thailand – Where to eat, see, and relax

I visited Bangkok for the Bangkok acro convention. Unfortunately, like most acro events, I ended up mostly seeing the gym, the supermarket and the coffee shop. But with a few spare hours saw a few wonderful places that I wanted to share.

See

Wat Pho

Home of the reclining Buddha. A beautiful, happy temple. Go late afternoon to see the temple in amazing hues.

Relax

Yunomori Onsen & Spa

Japanese Spa. Beautiful interior. Segregated women’s and men’s baths but communal relaxing areas and cafe. Put on your kimono and submerse yourself in lots of different types of baths. Lovely. Plan for 1-2 hours at least to make the most of it. Good thai massage but not the cheapest.

Drink

Amorosa

Make your way to the top floor bar to watch the sun set and create a perfect vista of Wat Arun across the river. Busy but worth it. There are many others nearby. The food here smelled amazing.

Bangkok’s hidden speakeasy bars

We also went to a lovely hidden cocktail bar somewhere on Sukhumvit Soi 11 Alley. All I know if that you find a flight of stairs on the roadside that lead to a noisy sports bar. Take a selfie, and you’re in. Can’t find it? A quick google will tell you all you need to know about Bangkok’s hidden bar scene.

What other’s recommended…

We didn’t get much time to explore Bangkok, but I did collect some more recommendations that I didn’t get a chance to try. Let me know if you try them!

  • Tour the canals on the water ferry
  • See sunrise at Wat Arun or Sanam Luang Park
  • Eat at Golden Bay Leaf

What are you recommendations for Bangkok?
