Bangkok comes alive at night and an evening stroll to see the city is an essential adventure. If you’re staying at The Siam, take their boat to the Memorial Phra Pokklao Bridge. From here stroll through a local night market—a short 5 minute walk punctuated by foreign snacks—to the Flower Market.
The flower market is Bangkok at its best—an exhilarating, foreign sensory experience—so this is where to start. Walk through the market, following Maharat Road to Sanam Luang, where you can enjoy the gilded radiance of the Grand Palace in relative solitude. From Sanuam Luang make your way to Banglampoo for a walk along Phra Athit road.
