Bangkok Itinerary ideas - 3 days -- would love your feedback!

Jump to last reply

We'll be staying 4 nights in Bangkok at the start of our trip in January, so we'll have 3 full days for sightseeing. Here is my rough draft, and would love your comments & suggestions(no brutality, please!). We'll be staying at the Centre Point Silom hotel.

Day 1: (Monday, Jan 20)
Tour with Tong: Grand Temple/major wats (include canal tour? anything else?).
**Question: Anything else I should add on to this tour?

Day 2: (Tues, Jan 21)
-Bangkok food tour (http://bangkokfoodtours.com/bang-rak-food-and-cultural-walking-tour). This ends at 1:15pm.
-Jim Thompson house
**Question: Can I do these 2 on the same day?

Day 3: (Wed, Jan 22 & our 25th wedding anniversary!)
-Half day (use Ratt?): floating market/train market
-Chinatown
(-Dinner to be determined; still considering where we'll eat this evening, and authentic, excellent food, and interesting are more important than formal or high end eating)

Day 4: We'll have the morning to explore/shop before we take a 3pm flight to Chiang Mai.

**Questions: Anything else I should see in this brief trip? Are the activities on days 2 & 3 doable as planned?

These are the highlights that seem to be of most immediate interest . The things that I could "sacrifice" if there wasn't enough time would be in order 1) the food tour and 2) the floating market/train market visit. I know there's lots more to do, but can't do it all. Hopefully, we will get back in a few years, but who knows when?

Many thanks for your help!

Paule
