Thailand is a beautiful country, known to be the Land of Smiles, and I can tell you with experience that it is true. The Thais are genuinely the nicest and the most smiling people I’ve ever met. They are so generous, caring and smiling that you can only smile in return.
Thailand is famous for its numerous temples, each one architecturally more beautiful than the other.
Of course, you can’t go to Thailand without falling in love with their food. They have the most diverse, colorful and tasty food ever. And it is very cheap as well. You can’t leave without having tasted their famous mango sticky rice, pad thai, salads, crispy chicken, fried rice and many more!
Thailand is also a shopping paradise. Some of the best shopping mall in Asia are in Bangkok, like MBK, Central World, Terminal 21 or Siam Paragorn…
Everyone should visit Thailand at least once in their live, and I know that planning a trip isn’t always easy: so many things to see and never enough time. If you are currently planning your first trip to Bangkok but only have one week of holiday and wonder what to do in such a short time… well wonder no more, because I have the perfect itinerary for you. I made it myself, being the organisation freak that I am. I just don’t like going somewhere without preparing a schedule beforehand.
Planning an itinerary does take some time, so I thought I would share mine with you, and maybe help those of you who don’t have the time to research and organise. This itinerary is based on the one that my friend and I did when we went to Bangkok for 5 days. I planned the extra 2 days based on what I would have planned if we had 7 days.
If you are planning on spending two weeks in Thailand, I would recommend you to spend the first week in Bangkok and the second week in another city or island, like Phuket, Koh Samui, Koh Samet…
This is the itinerary that I would recommend for a first time traveler to Bangkok. You can print it and take it with you on your trip. Not everyone speaks English in Thailand, and some places have different name in English and in Thai. That’s why I’ve researched for you the Thai name for each of the places so you can just show it to the people or the taxi.
Each of those days will be explained more in details in future posts, so stay tuned!
Make sure to read this article where I give you some tips about traveling to Bangkok including how to get around the city.
