Greetings from Portugal
I am planning my trip to Bangkok, where I will spend 2 and half days and staying at Holiday Inn (Sukhumvit area, I guess, not the HI Silom).
I will arrive around 4pm, so I believe that I wont explore much during that afternoon. Is there a nice place to eat around there?... (I intend to eat early and get to bed, so I can start the next morning “brand new”)
Now... as far as sightseeing…
I would like to see the Grand Palace complex, Wat Po, Temple of Dawn, shopping for good quality fake items (MBK?), hop-on and off the river boats, Khao San Road, Chinatown, Lumphini Park, explore the city by foot in general and more shopping!!!
Is this all (or most of it) do-able in two complete days and one morning (my flight to Chiang Mai departs at 3.30 pm)? BTW, what time do I need to go to the airport in order to get there in time to check-in?
Can you give me a plan to fit all sightseeing in my timeframe?
I was planning as follows:
Grand palace (lunch at Peninsula riverfront restaurant), Temple of Dawn, Lumphini Park and dinner at Loy Nava cruise;
Wat Po, river boats, (lunch at Baiyoke tower), Khao San road, MBK and dinner at Siroco;
Day 3 (morning)
Chinatown and airport.
What can or should I change? Is it too much in 2 days (I try to mix temples and shopping and nature to have different aspects of the city in the same day)?...
Sorry for the long post and please feel free to comment my itinerary!
All replies welcome! Thanks in advance!
