48 hours in Bangkok could hardly show you all that this bustling city of ornate shrines, vibrant street life and neon-lit magic has to offer, but with these 2 days in Bangkok, you’ll absolutely get a feel for its pulsing energy. The capital of Thailand has much to offer the curious traveller, and Bangkok’s attractions are vast. From the narrow alleyways of Chinatown to the city’s life blood - the Chao Phraya River - each nook is filled with spirituality, culture and custom. Feast your way through the various street foods on offer or pay homage at the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Lose yourself among the bright colours, friendly people and explosive nightlife - it really is a city to assault the senses. So from the Grand Palace to Soi Cowboy Street, here are the places to visit in Bangkok in 2 days. If you’re planning on being in the city a little bit longer, check out this 3 Days in Bangkok itinerary.
