Things to do

Bangkok has many things to offer tourists visiting the area. Many prefer to visit at this time of year as it’s slightly cooler than summer and there is less rainfall.

One place well worth a visit is Khao Yai National Park. Why not take a guided tour to make it a day to remember. Situated northeast of the city, the national park boasts five vegetation zones and a beautiful monsoon forest. With over 150 species of animals and 200 wild elephants, it’s the most visited park in Thailand. During your trip you’ll be able to taste exotic fruits, travel through rice fields, and be on the lookout for tigers and leopards. Your journey to the park will allow you to visit a fruit market, before stopping off at a local farm where you’ll learn how to cook traditional Thai food, before sampling dinner. Follow your guide as you travel across a bridge to the Haew Narok Waterfall. Make sure you capture lots of photographs as this truly is a once in a lifetime experience!

Restaurants and nightlife

For international cuisine in Bangkok, head to Eat Me. One of the best restaurants in the city boasts tasty dishes, alongside refreshing cocktails and a casual but refined atmosphere. Open from the afternoon to late in the evening, sample a bite to eat before heading out on the town, or end your evening here with a few delicious beverages, such as a fine wine.

Alternatively, for traditional Thai food, head to Jay Fai. Despite the simple décor, this restaurant serves exquisite fresh seafood, noodles and Thai herbs. Open until late in the evening, it’s the ideal place for a quiet dinner or supper.

Mid-February also sees Makabucha Day, a national holiday where a number of religious activities take place, and Lord Buddha is celebrated with incense sticks and candlelit processions.

Nearer the end of the month is the Nakhon Pathom Food and Fruit Fair, where visitors can enjoy various local Thai produce and cuisine from the numerous stalls. Finally, the Phra Nakhton Khiri Fair takes place in late February and lasts for nine days. It is held in the town of Phra Nakhon Khiri, very close to the city of Bangkok.
