Bangkok

We are starting off our Thailand trip in Bangkok. Please see below our recommendations on places to stay and things to do:

Accommodations

1905 Heritage Corner

A small luxurious guest house in the old city of Bangkok (Rattanakosin Island). Jade and I met the owners and were given a tour of the guesthouse.

Baan Noppawong

A small Boutique guesthouse close to Khao San road and a great central location for tourist landmarks. We have stayed here. 

Villa Phra Sumen

An urban boutique resort with 29 guest suites. Roughly a 10 minute walk to Khao San road and close to tourist landmarks. Another place we have stayed and loved.  

Evergreen Place Bangkok

A large family friendly hotel with a pool. Recommended on tripadvisor. 

Things to do

China Town

Great place to grab food and go to Chinese markets. The easiest and most relaxing way to get there is by river taxi to N5 Tha Rachawongse. It is also best to visit Tuesday-Friday as some shops are shut over the weekend and Monday. 

Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew

Home to the Emerald Buddha. Is a former residence of the Thai monarch and is a pilgrimage destination for devout Buddhists and nationalists. If you go, you must cover your legs and shoulders. Guides can be hired at the ticket kiosk. Ignore offers from anyone outside. 

Wat Pho

Holds the cities largest reclining Buddha and has the largest collection of Buddha images in Thailand.

Wat Arun (Temple of the Dawn)

One of the most stunning temples in Bangkok, not only because of its riverside location, but also because the design is very different to the other temples you can visit in Bangkok.

Lumphini Park

The park offers a rare open public space, trees, and playgrounds in the Thai capital and contains an artificial lake where you can rent boats.

Khao San Road

Bustling market and night life location. The road itself doesn't have too many restaurants but the surrounding roads have some great places to drink and people watch as well as getting a cheap Thai massage. 

Bike Tours 

We did a bike tour in Bangkok and got to see the flower market and temples by night. We even had a chance to do some outdoor yoga with the locals in a park.

Food Tours and Cooking Classes

Chili Paste Tours do brilliant food tours where you get to see some sights and have some amazing food. We have done this twice as we enjoyed it so much. They also run cooking classes. 

Flower Market

A huge flower market in the heart of the old town. There is a great Cafe called Flower Art & Floral Cafe which is a must see if you are at the market. 

Chatuchak Market

A weekend market that is very chaotic, but a must visit if you are in Bangkok for the weekend.

Railay

Railay is a beautiful place and where we have chosen to get married. We adore it. 

Accommodations

See 'When and Where' section for more details

Things to do

Rock Climbing

I  think is the only reason Rory is coming. Railay is a well known climbing location and there are plenty of tours and places to rent equipment. 

Diving and Snorkeling

There are plenty of dive operations in Railay that run trips to local dive sites. The water is lovely and clear and very warm.

Boat Tours

You can get boat tours and ferries to surrounding Islands. 

Kayaking

You can rent Kayaks by the hour or day from the beach or likely your resort. 

Princess Cave (Fertility Cave)

Lots of wooden penises.  

Holy Princess Pool (Hidden Lagoon)

There is a trail link that takes you from Railay East to Phra nang. A steep uphill ramble with ropes for assistance. Once at the top, fork right for the lagoon. If you turn right, you will reach a beautiful view point after a short hike. We recommend going when it is dry or you will get covered in mud. 

Diamond Cave

Illuminated caverns full of beautiful limestone formations.

Phra Nang Beach

This is the beach next to where we are getting married. You can buy food and drinks from the longtail boats that pull up to the beach. The beach is incredible and the sights of chicken island and Ko Poda are amazing. 

Railay West

The best place to see the sunset and go for a swim. We have spent a lot of time on this beach as we have stayed at the wonderful Railay Beach Club on both of our visits. If you stay at the beach club, make sure you get a cocktail and watch the sunset at the sunset bar. We recommend the spicy prikkarita margarita and the pina colada. 

Railay East

Muddy and mangrove lined at low tide. Not the nicest beach but plenty of affordable accommodation and restaurants. 

Railay Highlands

500 meters inland and one of the least developed areas set back in the jungle. We haven't stayed here but it looks beautiful. 

Hat Ton sai

Not the greatest beach but brilliant for climbing and nightlife. To get there, you will need to swim, kayak, 50 baht longtail ride, or a 30 minute hike through the jungle.
