Things to do in Bangkok.
Bangkok, a city of which you can expect anything being the capital of Thailand. The city bursts with shopping complexes, temples, vibrant nightlife, local markets and so many attractions for the tourists that is one of the reasons why we can find Bangkok so crowded. Here we have listed down some famous attractions of Bangkok that you must visit.
1. Grand Palace
Out of all the historic places in Bangkok if you get a chance to visit only one, go for the Grand Palace. The Grand Palace with its spectacular structures and royal compounds has brought the modern monarchs to shame. It is still used today for important occasions and accommodating heads of state. To avoid any hassle and to make the most of your trip, it is suggested to take the Grand Palace tour which is a half day sightseeing tour with a professional guide. Without a guide you may miss out on important features of the palace hence, not understand the importance of it.
