There’s a whole lot to see and do in Bangkok, but if you are after something a little more unusual than your typical tourist spots, here are five alternative things you can do in Thailand’s buzzing capital.
The Ancient Ruins of Ayutthaya
The ancient city of Ayutthaya is just outside Bangkok. Here you will find the iconic Buddha head statue bound by the roots of the Bodhi tree. You will find many ruins and temples in this strange ancient city.
Retro Speakeasy Bars
There are many quirky bars in Bangkok. The speakeasy bars replicate the mysterious speakeasies that popped up in 1020’s Shanghai. The bars are hidden away and have a strict smart casual dress code. Inside you will find live music and affordable food and drink.
Bangkok Airplane Graveyard
749 planes sit lying in pieces off Ramkhamhaeng Road. Many of these have been transformed into makeshift homes. It can be a lot of fun exploring.
Cabbages & Condoms
Cabbage & Condoms is a particularly unusual restaurant with a particular peculiar theme. All the decor is made from condoms and they give them out for free on request.
