Bangkok is the sort of wild travel destination that dreams are made of, so much so that tourism has become central to the city with more visitors passing through the city than anywhere else in the world. It has all the ingredients that a travel destination needs; a reputation for excitement that it more than lives up to, a ceaselessly entertaining nightlife, a myriad of cultural and historical sites to explore, cuisine that foodies the world over hanker after and of course, that unfailing Thai hospitality. There is always something happening here, so when it comes to the question of what to do in Bangkok in 1 day, serious research and expertise might be in order. Having been born and raised in the city I know my way around and love nothing more than to share my vibrant homeground, so to aid you in getting the most out of one day in Bangkok, here’s my Bangkok 1 day itinerary, perfect for a layover on the way to the southern Thai islands or simply an action-packed Bangkok visit!
