Unlike the usual tours in Bangkok, they offer you an honest tour to show you what it feels like to live among the Thais. Please don’t miss out the view of Temple of Dawn in the sunset, that’s the time they turn the lights on to highlight the wonderful lighting of the temple. It offers you a nostalgic feeling, we don’t know why it’s nostalgic but our group agreed we all felt the same thing.

Get A Massage

It could be a tiring day. So pamper yourself with a Thai massage. If you want to refresh yourself and get some bath, they have spas in Bangkok that have jacuzzi and baths. Take a warm bath first and let them finish the whole experience with a Thai massage.

Time to Party!!!

If you are into partying, well Bangkok can give you that. You should visit Royal City Avenue to choose which club suites your personality. Yes, they have clubs there for every personalities and preferences. We’ll sure you enjoy an electrifying night in RCA. Just don’t party too much because the transportation is not easy. You’ll have to take a motorcycle to get back to your hotel. So make sure that your head is still intact after the party. Remember that hangover is not a good thing to have whenever you are traveling a city for a short period of time.
