A bustling, 24/7, densely populated melting pot of people, food, shopping and entertainment, one word describes Bangkok more than any other - fun. Where activity in other cities may wind down as the sun goes down, Bangkok ramps up. Where locals in other cities eat out only occasionally, in Bangkok it's a way of life. And where others are reserved, Bangkok shines with diversity, colour and a constant sense that anything is possible. Thailand's capital offers those travelling for both business and leisure plenty of choice - there's a match for every taste, pace and budget.
When staying in Bangkok in your serviced apartment, don't miss out on the opportunity to experience the best of Bangkok. Cruise Bangkok's colourful and bustling night markets - filled with stalls spruiking all manner of flavourful Thai food and endless fashion options. Enjoy a journey along the Chao Phraya River on the way to some of Bangkok's top historical and cultural monuments and attractions, or take the time to just hang out in Bangkok's coolest neighbourhoods, soaking up Bangkok’s contemporary urban culture.
The Thai people are as a rule unfailingly polite and welcoming; Thai hospitality is renowned around the world. Take the time to relax amid the hustle and bustle with a traditional Thai massage, or stop by for a coffee in one of Bangkok's numerous artisan cafés.
When staying in your apartment hotel or serviced apartment in Bangkok, don't miss out on the best things to see and do by day or night. Climb aboard a teak boat and explore the many sights along the Chao Phraya River, including the Grand Palace and the Asiatique The Riverfront market.
The serpentine course of the Chao Phraya River runs through the heart of Bangkok and has been the centre of daily life in the city since the 15th Century. Today, you'll find some of Bangkok's most notable sights along its banks. Jumping aboard one of the 'express' boats and grabbing a day ticket for the Chao Phraya Tourist Boat is easily one of the best ways to get a sense of how extensive and densely packed Bangkok is. Some of the must-see sights along the river include the Grand Palace, the ceremonial home of Thailand's kings, Wat Phra Kaew (the Temple of the Emerald Buddha), and Wat Arun (Temple of the Dawn). Further south and about a 20-minute free shuttle boat ride from Sathorn – Taksin Pier you'll find the Asiatique The Riverfront night market and shopping concept, a themed shopping precinct with a vast range of restaurants as well as boutique 'one-off' fashion and accessory stalls. Part of the fun is getting there from your serviced apartment - it's a chance to hop from Bangkok's BTS Skytrain onto the riverboats and back again, a real urban adventure.
In many respects, Bangkok is young in spirit and eager to embrace the best-of-the-best from around the globe, while still retaining its cultural core. It's perhaps no wonder then that numerous neighbourhoods have over the last decade undergone somewhat of a cultural renaissance, playing host to a wealth of subcultures from the arts, food, and fashion. Within short travelling distance of your serviced apartment at Fraser Suite Sukhumvit, you'll find the Thong Lor district - a sophisticated section of the city that has in recent years attracted many of Thailand's budding entrepreneurs, artists and designers. The net effect, of course, is that Thong Lor fairly well pulses with creative energy 24/7. As a byproduct, the area also attracts Bangkok's well-heeled locals and expats alike who head out to unwind in the area's many sleek bars and restaurants. There are plenty of ways to get to Thong Lor from your serviced apartment, but we think the most fun is by catching one Bangkok's iconic canal ferries from the Nana Chard Pier and heading east along the Wat Sri Bunruang Water Gate to the Thong Lo Boat Station, especially during rush hour, as you'll avoid the crowding on the BTS Skytrain.
Eating out in Bangkok is a way of life, and there are perhaps no better places to dine on authentic Thai cuisine (and hunt for a bargain or two) than at one of the city's many night markets. Some of the night markets are huge and the atmosphere is terrific - everywhere you turn the enticing smells of hundreds of street food stalls assail the senses. One of the best is located in Bangkok's Chinatown along Yaowarat Rd, a straight run on the metro from your apartment hotel at Modena By Fraser to the MRT Wat Mangkon station. With its neon-lit cacophony of street signs and constant streetside hustle, the area is one of the most fascinating nighttime haunts in Bangkok, and the market is almost entirely given over to food, glorious food. One of the best venues to check out is Guay Jub Ouan Pochana, which serves up Guay Jub - a soup of rice noodles in a peppery pork broth. Nevermind if soup's not your thing - you'll be spoilt for choice.
In a city as densely packed as Bangkok sometimes the relentlessness of urban life can get a bit much. Bangkokians seeking a break from the bustle of daily life head to Lumpini Park, located close to your serviced apartments in central Bangkok. The park serves as a place to unwind, workout and take a breath. The 500,000 square metre area includes numerous water areas - one you can hire paddle boats on - as well as the Bangkok Public Library, a waterfall garden, and a Chinese Pavilion. It's a great place to go for a morning run or walk and you'll see plenty of locals doing the same, everything from riding bikes to aerobics and Tai Chi. From Modena By Fraser, catch the metro to Lumphini and alight. From Fraser Suites Sukhumvit, it's possible to walk the distance if you're feeling like stretching your legs or catching a bus down Witthayu Rd from Phloen Chit.
Muay Thai - the Thai martial art that's gained international recognition through global fight competitions such as the MMA, is even more popular in Thailand today than it was historically. The 'eight limbs' include the knees and elbows - used as part of Muay Thai's devastating fighting style. Beyond the obvious martial applications, Muay Thai is also a fantastic way to keep fit, and the opportunity to watch the professionals in action is not to be missed. The best place to catch all the heart-stopping action of a traditional Muay Thai match close to your serviced apartments in Bangkok is at the Rajadamnern Boxing Stadium, Bangkok's oldest Muay Thai venue and still one of the best. Generally, fights take place on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Sundays in the evenings. Alternatively, you may want to learn this ancient and venerable art for yourself. Bangkok boasts a wealth of Muay Thai gyms offering lessons for people of varying ages and abilities. A single lesson may cost anywhere between ฿300 - 500. One of the best gyms for beginners is RSM Academy, a gym combining Muay Thai for fitness classes with excellent beginner tuition in stretching, protocol and essential techniques. RSM is located along Sukhumvit Rd, within easy travel distance of your apartment hotel.
Bangkok has two airports - Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) and Don Mueang Airport (DMK). Suvarnabhumi welcomes most long-haul flights from around the world, whereas Don Mueang welcomes the most flights from within Thailand itself. The easiest way to arrive at your serviced apartment or apartment hotel from Suvarnabhumi is to take the Airport Rail Link into Bangkok and alight at Phaya Thai to change over for the Sukhumvit BTS line. Alternatively, there are plenty of private taxis available to take visitors into the city for around ฿400 one-way.
