Top 10 Most Fascinating Places to Visit in Bangkok in 2019
Planning to escapade in Thailand? Before you buy your tickets to Thailand and check in hotels here, it’s worth considering that the best of Thailand is so much more fun than in the posters or postcard perfect beaches for which it’s most famous! (I didn’t say that something wrong with that, though!).
The magnificent, mysterious, and mystical tropical country of Thailand is a hodgepodge of so many things to do, places to visit, and experiences to be had. Expect a rich depth of culture. Expect a deep history and yes, expect great food.
But whether you aim to spend all summer, or can only spend a week, here are a few highly recommended destinations which we feel you shouldn’t miss.
