What to Do in Bangkok in August

Recommendation Rate of Travel: 

When it does not rain, one can go to visit the Grand Palace, the luxury residence for the King of Thailand, one of the richest men in the world. It’s also a relatively good thing to do to enjoy a cruise on the Chao Phraya River to appreciate Thai style architecture along the banks while feeling the gentle breeze. At night, it’s recommended to appreciate the famous Thai boxing; and Muay Thai Live given at Asiatique The Riverfront is one of the most popular. Another interesting thing to do in Bangkok at night is tasting various local food and snacks at Khao San Road. If you are a Buddhist or interesting in the local Buddhism culture, you may attend the alms giving in the morning. 


1. Do not go out when it is scorching around noon or when it rains heavily. 
2. Prepare some mosquito-repellent in advance.
