How to Spend a Rainy Day in Bangkok
While Bangkok weather is fairly pleasant year-round, rainy days are not unheard of, especially if you visit during the wet season between early June and November. Here are some rainy-day suggestions should you find yourself stuck indoors.
Try muay thai boxing classes, a fun and kid-friendly way to burn off extra energy and learn one of Thailand’s most beloved sports. Afterward, seek out a Thai massage in one of the many spas around the city.
Dedicate some time to a Thai cooking class that will empower you with skills to craft favorites like pad Thai, curries, and spring rolls long after you return home.
Stroll through one of Bangkok’s many shopping malls, most of which feature both Thai and international brands. Try high-end Emporium in the Sukhumvit neighborhood or the MBK Center, home to some 2,000 shops spanning eight floors.
Head to SeaLife Bangkok Ocean World (formerly Siam Ocean World), an underground aquarium home to more than 30,000 aquatic residents from around the world.
Spend a day soaking in Thai culture with visits to the Thai National Museum, a showcase of exhibits and artifacts spanning prehistory to the present day, and the National Gallery, dedicated to non-secular Thai art and modern Bangkok art.
Stop by the must-see Temple of the Reclining Buddha (Wat Pho), an elaborate indoor treat.
