Voici le top 10 des expériences incontournables à vivre à Bangkok en résumé :

VISITE DE WAT PHO : C’est dans ce complexe de 8 hectares que vous pourrez admirer l´une des icônes de la ville (43 mètres de long, 15 mètres de haut) qui est le plus grand bouddha de Thaïlande. Profitez-en pour faire un massage car c’est ici que naquit le massage en Thaïlande.

SOIREE DANS SUKHUMVIT SOI 11 : Impossible de ne pas mentionner dans cette liste le célèbre quartier de Sukhumvit, soi 11. Venez-là pour y faire la fête entre amis. Bangkok regorge d’endroits chics pour passer une bonne soirée. Commencez par le Soi Cowboï de l’autre côté de la route puis poursuivez dans l’un des clubs branchés alentour.

VISITE DE CHINA TOWN : Le Chinatown de Bangkok est devenu à lui seule une attraction touristique à part entière. Une ville dans la ville à découvrir sans concession. L’expérience est dingue, ça grouille, ça fourmille, ça frétille. Nécessairement un top 10 Bangkok.

DECOUVERTE DU GRAND PALAIS : Cette merveille architecturale s’élève sur les rives de la rivière Chao Phraya. C’est LA visite à ne rater sous aucun prétexte tellement le lieu est riche d’histoire, de religion et d’architecture. Déambulez dans l’enceinte du Grand Palais puis allez admirer les magnifiques temples et le célébrissime bouddha d’émeraude. Magique.

EXPERIENCE SHOPPING : Expérimenter Bangkok sans passer par le marché aux puces de Chatuchak ou un mall comme MBK ou Central World… constituerait une expérience incomplète de la capitale thaï. Le marché de Chatuchakest l’un des endroits les plus fréquentés de Bangkok le week-end.

VIREE EN TUK-TUK : Est-il encore besoin de préciser ce que sont ces tuk-tuks (prononcez « touk-touk »), sorte de triporteurs aménagés à partir d’une moto, avec à l’arrière une banquette sous un auvent métallique? Visiter Bangkok sans pratiquer au moins une fois le tuk-tuk n’est juste pas envisageable…

FLANERIE DANS KHAOSAN ROAD : Longue de 500 mètres, la très célèbre Khaosan Road est probablement la capitale mondiale des routards qui voyagent à travers l’Asie du sud-est. Déambulez tranquillement dans Khaosan Road au gré de vos envies et arrêtez-vous quelques instants assis à la terrasse d’un bar autour d’un bonne Singha fraîche ou sur un fauteuil de massage.

CROISIERE SUR LE CHAO-PHRAYA : Le Chao Phraya traverse Bangkok où avaient lieu les fameux marchés flottants autrefois. Il ne vous en coûtera que quelques bahts seulement pour circuler sur le fleuve. L’expérience est divine.

EXCURSION AU MARCHE FLOTTANT DE DAMNOEN SADUAK : Damnoen Saduak est le marché flottant le plus populaire et le plus visité de Thaïlande. Situé à plus d’une heure et 80 km environ de Bangkok, partez tôt le matin pour éviter la chaleur et l’afflux de touristes.

APERO SUR UN ROOFTOP : S’il est un « roof bar » à citer dans le top 10 Bangkok, le Vertigo & Moon Bar s’impose tellement la vue est époustouflante du 61ème étage : une expérience absolument unique en Asie avec une vue panoramique 360° de dingue sur tout Bangkok. Goûtez au mythique Vertigo Sunset.
