48 Hours In Bangkok
I recently came back from a two week vacation in Thailand. I spent 2 days in Bangkok, 5 days in Phuket and the remainder of the time was spent in Chiang Mai. The busyness of Bangkok reminds me of most major cities in the world. I personally am not the biggest fan of crowded streets and hours of bumper to bumper rush hour traffic. With more than 21 million visitors, Bangkok is one of the most visited city in the world. Thailand’s thriving capital is full of temples, markets, and authentic streets food as well as cosmopolitan dining, designer boutiques, and vibrant nightlife. There’s never a dull moment in this city. This guide will help you plan your perfect 48 hours in Bangkok.
DAY 1 MORNING: BREAKFAST AT SIMPLE NATURAL KITCHEN
Simple natural is passionate about serving quality, good tasting foods and drinks. They source the finest produces to add to their menu. The food is absolutely delicious and affordable.
DAY 1 AFTERNOON: THAI MASSAGE AT SO THAI SPA
Enjoy total relaxation for body and mind, with healing massage and indulgent spa treatments, at So Thai Spa Bangkok.
With a peaceful garden environment, So Thai Spa Bangkok is the perfect oasis of calm, conveniently located in the center of the busy city.
DAY 1 NIGHT: STREET FOOD MARKET
Street food is a big part of the Bangkok experience. Wherever you go in the city, food stalls are everywhere and you will find a lot of them in busy areas. Some street vendors work in groups, especially in local markets, which means you can go to the same place every night and have a different choice of meal. Some even open around the clock.
DAY 2 MORNING: BREAKFAST AT TOBY’S
Another day another meal. To be honest the food in Bangkok was really great! I had to take every food opportunity I got. What a little gem Toby’s is!
Fast, efficient and attentive service is surpassed by the fresh and amazing food.
Breakfast or lunch - get there early to avoid disappointment of missing a table.
The also have amazing cold pressed juices, fresh salads at a reasonable priced.
DAY 2 NIGHT: DO NOT DISTURB (DND) NIGHTCLUB
DND (Do Not Disturb) club is one of the best clubs among Thonglor's ever-expanding nightlife scene, on Ekkamai 7. The focus here is more on the EDM songs, although they do welcome the occasional live band too. The whole club takes on a retro motel theme, with vintage TVs on the wall, old suitcases stacked high around the edge, and shiny chrome tables (on wheels). There's also a barber shop-style smoking room – a bit of a gimmick that's still quite cool at the same time.
