Pad Thai

I had my first taste of Pad Thai in Bangkok, and you can read about how much I enjoyed it here. Anyone visiting Thailand needs to try this dish. It is famously Thai, even though the dish did originate somewhere else, it has become known as a national dish. It is a delicious noodle based dish, usually with added prawns, but you can have it with chicken too!

Ride a Tuk Tuk

Although Tuk Tuks can be famous as part of the Bangkok scam ring, they are most definitely worth a try. If you keep your wits about you, and approach a driver with a firm, but friendly attitude, you can avoid being scammed. If you know where you want to go, make sure to Google it, as sometimes the drivers will pretend a place is closed so they can take you to somewhere they can earn commission off you. Know your stuff and be firm where you want to go. Bargain your price up front and you will be fine.

Be sure to ride a Tuk Tuk!

You can find Tuk Tuk drivers all over, but it is best to go for one who isn’t parked up in a busy area, they usually charge the most. Make sure you fit a Tuk Tuk ride into your itinerary. You can get a ride for as little as 10 bhat, which equates to around £0.20.

Check out Khaosan Road

Khaosan Road is a must see when you are in Bangkok. Even if you are not the party type, or you hate touristy areas, it is worth a look. The whole road is a market offering up amazing things for you to do and try during your stay. You can eat insects, get a massage in the street, eat coconut ice-cream and party in one of the many bars, or cafes with DJs blaring music until the early hours.
