My family and I went to Bangkok, Thailand last June 16-19, 2017. It was an extra special vacation for me because it’s my first sponsored international trip as a freelance writer. Thanks to BC Travel and Tours Corp for the trust! <3 They provided the van transfers, tours, and hotel accommodation for us.
Anyway, I pasted our quick itinerary here just in case you’d like to know the best places to visit in Bangkok for first-timers. Yay! Enjoy!
Airline: Cebu Pacific
Hotel: Baiyoke Boutique

Grand Palace (King of Thailand’s Palace)

Temples are sacred places for Thai people. The guards won’t let you in if you’re wearing shorts, above-the-knee skirts, and other “revealing” clothes. I was wearing shorts that time so I bought a pair of loose pants outside.
Wat Benchamabophit Dusitvanaram
If you’re looking forward to shopping in Bangkok, the best buys are clothes, bags, other authentic leather products, and jewelry. I bet you’ll go gaga over them because of the super affordable price tags.
I enjoyed our last day the most because we had an encounter with the elephants. I won’t deny that I was a bit scared of them, but they’re really harmless and friendly. As for the authentic Thai massage, I’ve noticed that Thai masseuses are used to doing it the “hard” way so if you’re more into soft or medium massage like me, you better tell them before they start.
The entrance fees and other costs could change anytime so I chose not to include the amounts here to prevent any form of misinformation or confusion.
Btw, I took a lot of photos in there so in case you’d like to see more of them, kindly visit my Bangkok, Thailand facebook album here. Thanks for reading!
