If your time is limited, at least visit 3 tourist attractions: Wat Arun Temple, Safari World Park and Patpong Red Light Street. Located on the western bank of the peaceful Chao Phraya River, Wat Arun, also known as Binh Minh Pagoda, is considered as a typical symbol of Thailand. The temple is covered with colorful porcelain outside and always shines in the night. Next is the Safari World park, which will make you surprised. The most surprising thing is probably that instead of animals being locked up, here, visitors will be “locked” in cars and go into the wild animals area to visit. The third location will be the red light district of Patpong which is the hottest area in Bangkok. It is recommended that you go in a large group when coming here for your security and you can visit a small bar to enjoy the bustling atmosphere here.

Referring to Thai cuisine, the first dish to be named is probably the hot and sour Thai hotpot. Thai hotpot has the spicy taste of fresh chili, the mild sweetness of sugar and bone broth, the strong aroma of lemon leaves, lemongrass. Food with Thai hot pot is mainly seafood such as shrimp, squid, fish … Next is Pad Thai. Pad Thai is made from noodles or fibers such as noodles, stir-fried with a mixture of shrimp, chicken, fried tofu and bean sprouts. Although the dish does not taste too special, it is very delicious and not greasy. Do not stop there, remember to “save your belly” to eat more of the famous mango sticky rice dessert. Fragrant sticky mango sticky rice cooked with coconut milk, served with a sweet ripe mango will surely satisfy even the most demanding visitors.

Not only stopping there, Bangkok is always changing to bring new interesting things to visitors.
