Things to Do
With the increase in rainfall, you are still advised to do indoor visits instead of outdoor activities. Visiting some indoor markets or watching some interesting shows might be a good idea.
Chatuchak Weekend Market
Chatuchak weekend market is in downtown Bangkok. It is the world's largest weekend market, covering an area of 0.14 square kilometers and with more than 15,000 booths.
Selling things ranging from household products, clothing and food to live animals and other property, it has become a famous weekend shopping site both for foreign tourists and local citizens. Inside the market, there are many things you can’t imagine, while there is nothing you can’t find.
Beware: The market is only open on weekends from 9 am to 6 pm, so don’t go there at the wrong time. Besides, it will be hot and crowded inside the market. Remember to bring a bottle of water and a small fan; or you can just buy them there.
Klong Lat Mayom Floating Market
One of the three floating markets near Bangkok, Klong Lat Mayom is not busy and crowded with tourists like Damnoen Saduak or Amphawa, but really has the charm of a local market and you might be one of the only foreigners around.
If you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the other highly-commercialized markets and to explore the everyday lives of the local people, Klong Lat Mayom may be your best option.
Siam Niramit Culture Show
Billed as one of the largest stage productions in the world, Siam Niramit recaptures Thailand’s glorious past through its impressive facilities and professional performances, with breathtaking scenery and colorful costumes.
Settled in the theater for about 90 minutes, you will learn about Thailand's art, history, culture and heritage in this three-act dramatic performance.
Meanwhile, there are three restaurants and an authentic Thai village in the grounds of the theater. You may feast on the Thai cuisine and choose from a wide range of souvenirs.
Muay Thai Show
The history of Muay Thai can be traced to the middle of the 16th century. You may have watched a Muay Thai boxing show on TV, but how about a live show?
Through this show, you will not only gain a deep understanding of the history of Muay Thai, but also have an opportunity to feel the excitement of being a Muay Thai boxer, as if you were one.
Muay Thai Live - The Legend Lives provides a Muay Thai show for tourists, but if you want to watch a real contest, you can alternatively go to Lumpini Boxing Stadium or Rajadamnern Stadium.
