Description:

It’d be a pity to never see Bangkok beyond the conference hall. Bangkok has plenty to offer and whether your free time is short or long you can squeeze in a bit of the exotic charm of the City of Angels. The following list includes hotel recommendations, Thai foodie experiences, the must-see sights, and a few places to unwind with a drink or a traditional Thai massage -- all close to the heart of downtown around the Bangkok Convention Centre.

Day 1 - Bangkok


After the convention sneak off to see some of the finest and most amazing of Bangkok’s tourist attractions, two of them right next to each other. The Grand Palace will give you a taste of the opulence of a King’s residence and its accompanying temple Wat Phra Kaew houses the Emerald Buddha. Just down the street is one of the most famous temple icons in Thailand: the Reclining Buddha at Wat Pho. To do both of these sites would require most of an afternoon or could be done as two separate visits. Nothing captures the city like dinner on a rice barge with views of the lighted temples along the Chao Phraya River. An evening cocktail at one of the chic rooftop bars such as Sirocco is a must, or make it easier and head up above the Bangkok Convention Centre to Red Sky.

Day 2 - Bangkok


If you have at least a couple hours during the day, hop in a taxi and get over to Wat Pho to see the amazing Reclining Buddha. If time is too short, take in the Erawan shrine just walking distance from the convention center. Dine along the Chao Phraya River and see some traditional dancing. If tension is running high, Devarana Spa is tops in the Orient for all sorts of spa treatments including Thai massage. Nightowls shouldn't miss Bed Supper Club for a clubbing experience like no other.

Day 3 - Bangkok


How convenient that one of the best known seafood restaurants in the country has a location in a nearby mall? If surf at Laem Cha-reon doesn't suit you, check out the fine dining experience at Baan Khanita. Saxophone Pub is a fine way to end the evening with a few drinks and some great live music in a bluesy little corner of Bangkok.
