Where To Go In Bangkok If You Only Have 24 Hours

Travel141 | SEA LIFE | Madame Tussauds | Where to go in Bangkok

Home to show-stopping temples, colourful markets and dazzling attractions, Bangkok can be an overwhelming city for a first timer. But with the smorgasbord of places you can visit in Bangkok comes one undeniable advantage—you’ll never run out of things to do. As such, even if you only have 24 hours to kill in Bangkok, you’re bound to maximise every minute. Well, that is if you know where to go in Bangkok. In this Bangkok travel guide, we’re taking you on a 24-hour adventure around the city that guarantees a spectacular time and an experience to remember.

Where To Go In Bangkok: Morning Escapade

All days begin with a good breakfast. Before you head off to your 24-hour long jaunt in the city, fuel up with a hearty and heavy breakfast at your Bangkok hotel of choice. Whether you’re staying in an upscale or a budget hotel, don’t pass up on Bangkok hotels’ breakfast buffet! Make sure you sample local favourites such as omelette and rice, khao tom and jok.

Travel141 | Where To Go In Bangkok | Grand Palace

Now that you’ve properly filled up, it’s time to visit your first attraction. Wondering where to go in Bangkok? The Grand Palace, of course. Built in 1782, the Grand Palace is one of the top Bangkok tourist attractions that you shouldn’t miss. Unbelievably gorgeous in the sun, the Grand Palace seems to sparkle—further highlighting the intricate details and majestic architecture. Make time to explore the complex because inside you’ll find even more stunning buildings. The Grand Palace is open daily from 8:30 am until 3:30 pm.

If the heat becomes unbearable, head out of the Grand Palace and make your way to Siam Paragon. Here, not only can you cool down and enjoy lunch but also visit another exciting Bangkok attraction called SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World. It doesn’t matter if you’re travelling with kids, flying solo or have a travel buddy with you. At SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World, the attractions are bound to pique everyone. Even better, they have two new fun-filled activities that you must not miss.

Love penguins? Then you must visit the Penguin Ice Maze attraction where you’ll get to see the adorable Gentoo Penguins, which typically stand at an adorable 20 to 35 inches. When you do visit the Penguin Ice Maze, keep your eyes peeled for the Gentoo penguins named Happy, Je T’aime and Mafia. These baby penguins were bred at SEA LIFE! There’s also no reason to fear them because besides being cute, they’re very social as well. Moreover, you’ll also feel what it’s like to be on the Antarctic Peninsula because of the cool climate.

Another new attraction at SEA LIFE is the new SpongeBob SquarePants 4D Cinema. For only 350 Baht, you get to join SpongeBob, Patrick and Sandy on their ocean floor adventure! Just make sure you reserve your tickets ahead of time to secure your seat.

Where To Go In Bangkok: Afternoon Adventure

Want to wind down in the afternoon and spend it an art gallery or a museum? Once you’ve seen all that needs to be seen at SEA LIFE Bangkok, go on a short 5-minute walk and you’ll arrive at Madame Tussauds Bangkok.

Travel141 | Madame Tussauds

From your favourite athletes to the most popular Hollywood celebrities, this is the only place in Bangkok where you can rub shoulders with them—literally! The detail that goes in every display is incredibly realistic that you’ll forget you’re seeing a wax figure and not the real person.

If seeing all the stars isn’t enough to pique your interest, animated movie characters also have their own wax figures here, just like the three main characters from Ice Age. Besides getting up close and personal with Sid the sloth, Manny the mammoth and Scrat the squirrel, guests can also have their own snow experience at Madame Tussauds. How? Through a nine-minute film showing of Ice Age: No Time for Nuts 4D.

Now, after you’ve seen all the prominent figures on display at Madame Tussauds, it’s time cap off your day with a trip to a nearby night market in Bangkok. One such place is the Pratunam Market, which is a shopping haven that is open from dawn until dusk. It’s here where you can score bargains on clothes, shoes and other accessories. You can also tame that rumbling stomach of yours at the Pratunam food street. From Thai fish cakes to moo ping, you’ll be spoilt for choice with all the local street food on display.

1. Thai Cuisine

Tom Yam Gong

This is the most common Thai Cuisine that you could get in every Thai Restaurant or food stall. It is quintessential of Thai Cuisine. With the signature of hot, sour and spicy taste all-in-one, it is the best appetizing dishes for a summer country like Thailand.

By the way, if you break down the words of “Tom Yam Gong”, it is translated as “Tom” (soup), “Yam” (Sour and Spicy), “Gong” (Prawns) – A sweet and sour soup served with fresh prawns.

Thai Papaya Salad

Served with crispy and crunchy papaya slices, paired with red hot chillies and lemon sauce, adding on peanuts and lettuce formed a well-blend of hot and sour cold appetizer that is mouth-watering.

Thai Curry Crab

The origin of Thai Curry Crab is funny. Legend has it a drunk cook mistaken curry powder as pepper powders, added it onto the dish and turns out to be a tasty delight. Who knows that a simple mistaken step could turn out to be a popular dish now?

2. Thai Street Food

Thai Banana Pancake
