We believe in curiosity, and want to inspire you to go beyond the touristic and ordinary routines when you visit Bangkok. We do like sights such as the Grand Palace and Wat Arun (The temple of Dawn), but also like to go to the less travelled places and want to help and encourage other travellers to capture the streets of Bangkok on their own.
That’s why we put up our insider guide to Bangkok!
We love Bangkok. And we love to share our passion for the city with you. This list may not represent the conventional places, but we guarantee you that each and every one will bring you a unique experience or urban exploration way beyond the ordinary.
So what does the Bangkok map contains, and what can you expect?
BTS, MRT & River Routes
For some travellers is the thought of taking public transport a scary thought, and with the cheap Taxi and tuk tuk prices it is tempting not to do it as the locals. But! Once you realise how easy it is to take the skytrain (BTS) or going by boat at the River Phraya you will get to explore new places, you didn’t expected to visit when you started your day!
Navigating The Streets with Thai Translations
Its not a secret that it is very few travellers in Thailand that’s able to speak and read thai, even for expats it sometimes can be a struggle to navigate the streets of Bangkok. We have translated 38 coordinates on the map to make it easier for you. Maybe you will end up learning some Thai at the same time?
