Bangkok City Guide

A few weeks ago, Anna and I jet set of to Thailand on a vacation of a lifetime! We didn't want to spend a fortune, so we booked our trip through Groupon for Affordable World, which is a tour company. We very were hesitant booking through Groupon...who know's if these companies can be trusted and how the conditions of the lodging, transportation, etc. would be. We read up on the reviews before we finalized everything and the overwhelming response from past travelers was great! So we booked it and hoped for the best! 

The Groupon already came with flights included through Air China, which I had never heard of before this trip. For our flights, we had a 12 hour flight from San Francisco to Beijing, then a 2 hour layover, and then a 5 hour flight from Beijing to Bangkok. To our surprise, Air China was very nice and spacious! We all had personally TVs and got multiple meals. Below, I will tell y'all my favorite things to do while in Thailand's capital city. If you want any additional information, feel free to email me at
