5 reasons why people from Mumbai love travelling to Bangkok

According to a recent report, Thailand's capital city - Bangkok - was visited by almost 5 lakh Mumbaikars in the last fiscal year. As the number of flights going to Bangkok from Mumbai will increase in the near future, here are a 5 reasons why we think people from Mumbai absolutely love travelling to Bangkok so much and it could increase in the future. 

Floating Markets

A Southeast Asian peculiarity, Floating Markets are a tourist attraction and something Mumbai doesn't have, yet (although all our markets float during Mumbai rains). The 3 most popular floating markets in Bangkok are Damnoen Saduak, Amphawa, and Khlong Lat Mayom. With fruit, vegetable vendors buzzing the market, there's a lot here for people to explore in food. 

The Thai Massage

Thailand is internationally popular for the traditional thai massage, and has built its reputation for the same over the years. For a tired traveller or for someone who is touring from Mumbai, this is the perfect stress-buster as the authentic thai massage will relieve you off your stress. These massage parlours can be seen across Bangkok and most of the visitors do visit one of these on their trip. 

Wat Arun

Located on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River, Wat Arun is a Buddhist temple in the Bangkok Yai district of Bangkok, Thailand. The temple derives its name from the Hindu god Aruna, often personified as the radiations of the rising sun. Wat Arun is among the best known of Thailand's landmark. The first light of the morning reflects off the surface of the temple with pearly iridescence, and is a very popular tourist attraction. 

Sky Bar and Hotel

The 88-story building is the tallest in the entire country and gives an eagle-eye view of the capital, with dazzling lights and a surreal feeling. Tourists who don't mind shelling out a little extra do stay here, others visit the bar for a drink or two and enjoy the view. 

Khao San Road

This popular street is described as 'the centre of the backpacking universe' as it's a 1 km-long strip with countless budget guesthouses and mid-range hotels, internet cafes, bars, restaurants, massage parlours, travel agents, bookshops, market stalls, tattoo shops and much, much more.

So much, in fact, that the people, peddlers and party spirit have spilled over into nearby Soi Rambuttri. With its carefree, anything-goes vibe, it's quite unlike anywhere else in Bangkok. Khao San has an infectious atmosphere. It's also popular with locals, especially young hipsters and art students.

So as a total of 4,88,538 passengers (669 per day) travelled between Mumbai and Bangkok in the fiscal year 2018-19, we can very well understand the reason behind the travel. Bangkok does have a lot to offer to travellers.
