What to Do in Bangkok in October

Recommendation Rate of Travel: 
Coming to Bangkok, one should not miss experiencing the local Buddhism culture at the various temples. Wat Arun or Temple of the Dawn is among the most popular. It is a complex of Thai style architecture located by the Chao Phraya River. Climbing up there, one can also have a bird’s eye view of the cityscapes. It’s also recommended to visit Damnoen Saduak Floating Market to experience Thai folk customs, where locals row a boat to sell various local snacks and their own-planted tropical fruits; please be aware that the best time to visit it is the early morning. As the ancient capital of the country, the royal culture has been an important part of Bangkok and the best place to learn it is the Grand Palace, the luxury residence for the royal family. Other things worth doing including enjoying a Thai massage and watching a Tai boxing.
