Sai Sa Ard is the place for breakfast. You may order a fruit bowl, roti canal ($12), a common breakfast street food, or an omelet and rice with sweet chili sauce. If you cannot handle rice in the morning, ask for an alternative or order something else from the menu.


Head to the Giant Swing, a site for religious ceremonies where men would try to grab a bag of coin suspended from the swing with their teeth. It’s 21 feet tall and a popular tourist location.


Next stop is the Temple of the Emerald Buddha statue and museum ($5). It is a statue of the meditating Buddha in a yoga position, believed to be the oldest sculpture of the Buddha. The statue is made of semi-precious green stone covered in gold.


THE SIXTH 6th is where you will order pad Thai for lunch. They also make soups, and the chicken cashew nut with jasmine rice is also a great option ($16).


The Grand Palace ($16) is a popular tourist attraction in the city and your next stop. It is an architectural wonder that has great historical significance. It was built in 1782 and is the residence of the Thai monarchy. There is a dress code so be weary of what you wear. The arms, legs and feet should be covered, and half pants and shorts are not allowed.


Khosan Road is your final destination. Enjoy Thai street food for dinner. Here you’ll get to enjoy the Bangkok nightlife with locals and tourists alike ($16).
