(Exclusive discounts for Let’s Relax & Rarinjinda Wellness Spa – Read on #5 for details)
Travelers have had their down times like in any normal lifestyle in routine, they can be tired and exhausted traveling from place to place or they can be simply evolving into a different travel style that they’ve gotten used to. You can agree (or not) that long-term adventure travel can be tiring and you’ll find yourself wanting some pampering and relaxing mode in between. So, I thought I should write something about Luxurious Things to Do in Bangkok but of course, on a discount travel twist (meaning, on a budget!).
5 LUXURIOUS THINGS TO DO IN BANGKOK
1) Grand Palace – That is the iconic place to visit in Bangkok, looking at postcards and magazines or even Facebook friends who have gone to Bangkok will have the photo of the reclining Buddha which is in the vicinity of The Grand Palace. It is touristy but at least you don’t have to hike or climb a mountain to see it, just wear proper clothes and pay the entrance fee.
You can also read more about it on my post: Bangkok’s Majestic Grand Palace.
2) Dinner Cruise – Chao Phraya river in Bangkok is the place to check out for dinner cruises that you can hop on for a night glowing sceneries of the city. Choices can be from modern yacht to traditional Thai boat services offered by different agencies and even 5 Star Hotels you can choose from, whichever fancies your mood. The fancier the boat is the pricier it gets, but you’ll always have a better deal researching and planning more about it.
I thought, I should share what I’ve experience literally and not just by telling you stories and making you envy with all the photos. You too can now enjoy the great dinner cruise experience I’ve had.
Story of the dinner cruise can be found on “Chao Phraya’s Manorah Dinner Cruise“.
3) Bar Hopping – Though I don’t drink alocohol(much), it would not stop me hanging out with my friends at the bar and wouldn’t mind that I’m the only person that sips Mango smoothie, Iced Tea, or a Mocktail in the room as they drink their way to the merriment of the night. People go there to hang out with friends and meet new people aside from being wasted, and Bangkok has a lot of mind blowing bars, from glow in the dark, sky lounges, roof deck, themed bars, etc.

4) Hearty Food Trip – Thailand is generally a food heaven which obviously why Thai food is one of the most popular cuisine in Southeast Asia if not the most. Thai cooking classes are easy to find around from the northern part of the country, Chiang Mai in which most of tour package choices includes Thai cooking classes and obviously in the city. Bangkok, however, has a non-profit organization that helps out refugees in Thailand called, In Search of Sanuk. You can visit them anytime to help and if you wish to organize a visit, the organizers can arrange a nice meal wherein refugees are glad to cook you some Thai dishes to prepare for you in return of a small donation.

5) Relax and Pamper Yourself – Aside from shopping from the street and shopping malls to pamper yourself there are also specialized salons and spas in the city to get your make over and just simply relax. What better way to do it in Thailand than getting a Thai Massage or go to a salon, I prefer going to the spa and relax the whole day if I can.
