Bangkok is one of the coolest places to just hang out. The world moves around you like a dance and the whole experience is really something to take in. But forget all that temple watching and museum exploring. There are loads of things to do that are more active and get the body moving -- and we don't just mean dance clubs. For travelers looking for a more active experience, have a look at NileGuide's best active things to do in Bangkok. This top ten list should get you out and moving about. Walking tours? Sure, but if you want something a bit faster and farther off the beaten walking trail, get yourself a bike. Whether you rent one on your own or sign up for a guided tour, you are going to see Bangkok from a whole new angle. Another option is to get on the water. The Chao Phraya River is the obvious choice, with tour possibilities or just going with the locals on the abundant river taxis. But don't miss the canals. Khlong Saen Saeb is a rush through the heart of the city on a canal taxi that will cost you only pocket change. Be sure to duck under the bridges. Get out of town to the floating markets or to Kanchanaburi for a trip on the Death Railway. Khao Yai National Park shouldn't be missed by hikers and nature lovers, but you can also find green space and public exercise right in the city at Lumphini Park. Climb around some ruins at the former capital of Siam in Ayutthaya, or make the short trek up Golden Mount for a commanding temple view of Bangkok.
