25 Amazing Things To Do In Bangkok (VIDEO)

By Mark Wiens 20 Comments

One month of filming, an entire week of editing…

…60 gigabytes of raw video, over 500 clips, and about 24-hours to upload (on my connection), and I finally present to you “25 Amazing Things To Do In Bangkok,” on video.

It’s been a huge project that I’ve spent a lot of time on, so I’m extremely happy that it’s now live.

Without saying anything further, here’s the video:

Press play now!

Thank you for watching!

(If you can’t see the video, watch 25 Things To Do in Bangkok on YouTube here)

Here are a few video screenshot highlights:

The reason I like Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn) is because you can climb the staircase to the middle level for a great view of central Bangkok and the Chao Phraya River.

A visit to Bangkok would be incomplete without dining on the streets!

What could possibly be better after a large meal than a massage?

Few Bangkok attractions are more appealing than feasting on something that’s creamier than butter and sweeter than honey.. and it’s all-nat-ur-all too! I’m talking about the king of fruits, and don’t worry, it’s on the list.

    Hi Mark,

    Hi Mark – loved it. Hoping for my 6th Thailand visit next year. I’m rather addicted and love to see Bangkok through others eyes and for the memories!

    My tip for travellers is to research all the ways to use various modes of transport and study the maps to get orientated (i.e. don’t expect to get a taxi to chinatown – go by sky-train or boat depending where you are). Work out prior to holidaying HOW you’re going to get around to specific places – no wasted time then.

    And imo you can’t do Bangkok justice with a flying 3 day visit. My first time was 1 & 1/2 weeks and set me up for many more enjoyable trips to come. Each time I visit I do new things, taste new food and get to revisit my favourites.

    Keep up the great website!

    Nice work on the video. I am so damn hungry I need to leave work. I will put Bankok on the top of my list.

    Mark; super tour! I’ve been to Bangkok several times and it’s on my very short list of best cities of the world. I would, however, add another fun thing to do: Ride the river taxis up and down the river. They not only take you somewhere but they’re a cheap sightseeing way to see the city.

    Great job Mark. I’ve been to most of these places – it’s a great reminder. You’ve given me a few more spots to visit though! Thank you for this labour of love!
