The capital of Thailand attracts visitors with its ample shopping opportunities, vibrant nightlife, historic palaces, and religious sites, but things to do in Bangkok also include many family-friendly activities, such as observing schools of fish from a glass-bottomed boat at SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World. The ornate Grand Palace, the former official home of Thai monarchs, is certainly one of Bangkok's most popular attractions, along with the towering Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun). Chatuchak Weekend Market not only offers a mind-boggling range of products, but also allows travelers to experience the city's vibrant atmosphere.
