Bangkok's famous floating markets

Need-to-know details

Bangkok is a city known for its many shopping opportunities, so be sure to take plenty of baht, the national currency of Thailand. It's also important to be up to date with your routine immunisations and be wary of mosquitos and where you eat. Also, don't be afraid to try something new and use tuk tuks to get out and about – they're affordable, practical and a fun, cultural experience you’ll never forget. 

Smart Traveller currently advises travellers to be cautious and pay attention to their personal security at all times.
