How to spend 3 days in Bangkok: Travel tips for female travelers
If you ever wish to take your dream vacation, the city of Bangkok in Thailand is just the place to be. It is a city with a mixture of old and new tourist sites that include temples, rooftop bars and restaurants, street foods, fashion malls, skyscrapers, rusted shacks, and red-light districts. If you and your female friends are traveling together, here is a list of some of the Bangkok travel tips for female travelers.
1. The Grand Palace & Royal Temple of the Emerald Buddha
If you are planning a trip to Thailand, make sure you visit the Grand Palace. It is divided into four sections with the Royal Temple being one of them. The image of the most sacred Buddha is placed inside the Royal Temple. As the place is a popular tourist site, try and make your visit in the morning as there are fewer people at that time.
The place is open between 8.30 and 14.30 and you have to pay 500 Baht to enter. Since the temple is a sacred place, there is a dress code for those visiting the site. Basically, one is required to cover their whole body (except the face) with loose-fitting clothes that are not see-through. Please note that failure to adhere to the dress code will have you turned away.
2. The Reclining Buddha
If you only have 3 days in Bangkok, you can visit Wat Pho, which is next to the Grand Palace. It houses Thailand’s largest collection of Buddha images and the largest Reclining Buddha. Entry is at its towering head where you go around it counterclockwise. Its right hand is such that it looks as if it’s lying on its side.
While there, make sure to drop a coin into the golden buckets that are lined around the temple perimeter; this is for good luck. There is also a massage school in the property where you can get a Thai massage as you head out. Admission is from 8.30 to 18.30 with the entry fee at 100 Baht.
3. Temple of the Dawn – Wat Arun
This is another site worth visiting if you are planning a trip to Thailand. It is situated next to the Grand Palace. It is modeled as the Angkor temples of Cambodia. The top of the temple is accessed by climbing the stairs which is a good exercise activity.
The view at night is breathtaking as the temple lights up at night, however, you get to see it on the opposite side as it is closed at night. The river to the temple also has large catfish that tourists feed as they swim to the riverbanks. It is open daily from 8.30 to 17.30 where you are required to pay 100 Baht as entry fee.
4. Dining restaurants
After all the touring, you will need to take some time off and dine. There are many places you can eat. One of the best sky bars in Sukhumvit is Cielo Sky Bar & Restaurant where you can experience the best rooftop dining in Bangkok.
The restaurant is situated on the 46th floor of the Skywalk Condominium. At the restaurant, you will have a 3600 view of Bangkok after a long day sightseeing in the city of Bangkok. The restaurant is also an ideal location for holding a birthday party or any other special occasion.
There is a wide variety of foods to suit your taste buds in addition to a variety of drinks. Here, you get to experience the best of Thai cuisine.
Bangkok is a city full of culture with ornate shrines and vibrant street life. In addition, the Chao Phraya River is a sight to behold as it has a network of canals flowing into it. Therefore, if you only have 3 days in the city, our Bangkok travel tips will definitely keep you busy.
