Bangkok is one of the top travel destinations for all Singaporeans, and it’s easy to see why: this bustling metropolitan city has it all with labyrinth-like night markets and tasty street food. But since Bangkok is just a short two-hour flight away, much of the recommended activities and heritage sites strike a chord of “been there, done that”. For a travel itinerary that veers off the beaten track, consider these nine unique things to do in Bangkok. Affordable Botox teatments, pictuesque landscapes on city outskirts, and hidden rooftop bars – that’s exactly what we’ll be up to for our next trip to Bangkok.
TRAVEL UPDATE (as of May 21 2022): It’ll soon be a whole lot easier holidaying in Bangkok compared to past months. Right now, there are no quarantine requirements for both fully-vaccinated or unvaccinated travellers. There’s no need for those fully-vaccinated to take Covid tests either.
From June 1, we’ll also be able to get instant approval for the Thailand Pass, a tedious process that once had us waiting for weeks for the green light. And even better, starting June as well, Bangkok’s nightlife is slowly but surely returning back to the glory of its pre-pandemic days – bars, pubs and karaoke bars will be able to open till midnight.
