In today’s world, there is no reason to let life pass you by. The world is full of fascinating places that you owe it to yourself to explore. If you’ve been hesitant to because you feel tied to your daily routine, consider that Bangkok is a great place to live and work, even if only temporarily. There are many digital nomads in Bangkok that will have you inspired to book a flight before you know it. You will find there is no limit to what you can do in Bangkok.
With so many places to travel, you may be wondering why Bangkok is an excellent choice. The answer lies in the fact that there are fun activities to do in Bangkok. You will also find that Bangkok’s coworking spaces are easily reachable. This means you can support yourself while you travel and explore.
Aside from these practical reasons, the weather in Bangkok is a great reason to visit. Its subtropical environment is conducive to wandering as a nomad does. There is no fear of becoming overheated, overworked or generally burned out. Combine that with the abundance of healthy food at a cheap price and it’s hard to come up with an argument not to go to Bangkok. You’ll be lost in the local charm in no time whatsoever.
Bangkok is made for those who don’t want the expense of a car. Most digital nomads in Bangkok rent shared workspace near public transportation lines. The MRT and BTS train lines cover opposite sides of town, so no matter where you want to go you are set.
To avoid having to walk to and from the trains you can always get a motorbike taxi. Though navigating traffic in these vehicles is not for the faint of heart, it will get you to wherever you are going without you having to expend your energy. This is usually a safer option than walking, as sidewalks are scarce in Bangkok. And even when you encounter them, they tend to be extremely narrow and difficult to walk on.
What are Fun Activities To Do in Bangkok
There are no lack of things to see and do here. One activity you shouldn’t pass on is visiting the Dusit zoo. As the biggest zoo in Bangkok, you will be able to interact with animals such as monkeys, tigers and giraffes. Of all the animals the zoo has, none outnumber the monkeys. You are actually encouraged to play with them when you visit.
To burn off any excess energy you may experience, head over to Lumpini Park. There is no bigger park anywhere in Bangkok. This is where all the locals go to exercise, so if you want to mingle with them, get your feet moving.
After all that physical activity you may be feeling it. This isn’t a problem, because there are tons of places where you can get a body massage you will never forget. Just be advised not to get one in either Nana or Asoke. These are areas where you may not get what you bargained for. Otherwise, you shouldn’t leave Bangkok without getting a proper massage.
No stay in Bangkok is complete without seeing The Grand Palace and the Wat Arun Temple. Both are unexplainable attractions that you need to experience on your own to fully appreciate them.
Where To Eat In Bangkok
Each part of Bangkok has something to offer in terms of restaurants, cafes and street trucks where you can try the local cuisine. Certain areas are known for specific dishes that you will likely want to try. In Chong Nonsi you can sample the local’s take on chicken rice as well as other classic Thai dishes. Don’t worry though; if you get a craving for American food during your stay you can get burgers and pizza in the areas of Thong Lor and Asoke, respectively.
When the sun goes down, you might wonder what to do in Bangkok at night. Let’s discover Bangkok on a different perspective and have fun with the attractions. From having street food, clubbing, sightseeing a cultural experience, or having a rooftop dining at a restaurant like Cielo Sky Bar & Restaurant to savor the priceless view of the city, Bangkok will definitely fulfill your wish.
Work Locations In Bangkok
With Bangkok as Asia’s startup hub, there are plenty of places to work while you are there. Those who already have would recommend renting office space at one of the many centers designed specifically for digital nomads. In general, Bangkok’s coworking centers offer areas where you can hold meetings with clients, as well as work among other digital nomads. There are often outdoor accommodations, as well as bars and cafes where you can relax over lunch or dinner. You may also have the convenience of secure storage areas where you can keep personal items that are valuable to you. Offices are typically open 12 hours a day, giving you plenty of time to work.
You will find that these centers provide you with access to top-notch WiFi so you never have to worry about missing a deadline. When you arrive you simply need to have with you your laptop, an adapter and your charger. Most centers provide everything else you need in order to be as productive as possible. With thousands of digital nomads using these centers daily, you will be surrounded by like minded people that are all about supporting their peers in the rat race of life.
