If you’re heading to the Bangkok, we’re sure you’ll already have a few bucket list items to tick off and will have made some notes on where you want to visit. If not, or if you need a little extra guidance, here’s our simplified list of things to do in Bangkok for 3 days.
Things To Do In Bangkok For 3 Days
Temples In Bangkok – Wat Pho & Wat Arun
It wouldn’t be Thailand without temples! Wat Arun and Wat Pho were by far our favourites amongst the 400+ in the capital.
We recommend jumping on the Chao Phraya Express Boat (River Ferry) and paying 50 baht to reach Wat Arun. It’s then just an extra 4 Baht for the local government boat to cross the river to Wat Pho.
Lebua State Tower (The Hangover Sky Bar)
Any trip to Bangkok wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the world famous Lebua State Tower. Not only was it made famous by Bradley Cooper and the gang when filming The Hangover, but the Lebua Sky Bar gives the best views of the capital’s skyline. Definitely one of the top things to do in Bangkok for 3 days!
Damnoen Saduak Floating Market Bangkok
Damnoen Sauak Floating Market is well regarded as the best floating market in Bangkok.
A two hour trip west from the city lands you amongst the most popular floating market in Asia. A site for photo opportunists, Thai foodies and those that are interested in taking a look into the local life of the Bangkok river.
Khao San Road – Bangkok Madness
If you want to see how much tourism has changed Thailand, head to Khao San Road. Another famous movie spot that Leonardo visited in the film ‘The Beach’, this single road in Bangkok has turned into a backpackers heaven. Swamped with alcohol spots, elephant pants and every insect on a stick you can imagine it’s definitely worth a visit.
Bangkok Ghost Tower (Sathorn Unique)
There are a few blogs and stories online about how people have managed to pay off the guards to get inside. Although try as we might there was no budging them on this occasion.
It was still interesting to take a look from the outside at how what was once planned to be one of the highest competing hotels in Bangkok, Sathorn Unique Tower, now just lies as a very eery and spooky concrete tower.
The name says it all, we didn’t know about this place until one of our followers flicked us a DM on Instagram and it was right up our street. Like something from a computer game or movie scene the old abandoned aeroplanes in Bangkok make for an awesome playground or photo opportunity.
Bangkok Shopping Malls
Bangkok shopping malls are not hard to find and with so many international brands to choose from as well as local markets here are just a few that you may want to check out as things to do in Bangkok for 3 days.
Platinum Mall – for six levels of local wholesale trading and plenty of male and female apparel at cheap prices.
Central World – The largest mall in Thailand and one of the largest in the world at 4.62 million sq ft, this will easily keep you entertained for a day of retail therapy.
Siam Paragon – One of the largest Bangkok shopping malls is also the place for entertainment. From an IMAX cinema to the Siam Ocean World Aquarium, it has everything including the Thai Art Gallery, a bowling alley and a karaoke centre.
Backpacker – Pillow & Bread – Can’t vouch for this one but the reviews look good online and the location isn’t bad.
