We visited Bangkok during a three city tour of Thailand where we also visited Chiang Mai and Phuket.   We’ve already heard there isn’t much to do in Bangkok and a day or two is enough time. Here’s how to spend 2 days in Bangkok.

Where To Stay in Bangkok

We rented this for our time in Bangkok which saved us a lot of money and was in a super convenient location.

From Bangkok we did a day trip to Ayutthaya which is about an hour outside of the city. There are a lot of expensive group tours but we wanted the freedom to go at our own pace

Day 1: Day Trip to Ayutthaya

We visited the 5 main temples in the city: Wat Chaiwatthanaram, Wat Lokaya Sutharam, Wat Mahathat, and Wat Phra Si Sanphet.  We didn’t even have to tell the driver where we wanted to go, they pretty much know what you are there to see.

Day 2: Don Manora Floating Market, Maeklong Railway Market, Grand Palace, Wat Pho, and Wat Arum

When booking the tour for the floating market I actually had no idea it included the train market or that their even was one. I am so happy it did because I liked the train market best, it was so unique in my opinion.

Visiting the Temples in Bangkok

We visited the Wat Pho Temple, which houses the infamous Reclining Buddha, around 5:30PM. This best as most tourists come earlier in the day so we nearly had the place to ourselves.
