Visiting Bangkok is the time to discover your inner peace. This can be done by visiting Bangkok’s golden palaces and temples, like the Wat Pho Temple of the Reclining Buddha. Be sure to take off your shoes before entering a temple, as respect is a big part of Thailand’s culture.
At the end of the day, find time to relax and unwind at one of Bangkok’s five-star spa’s.
