How many days do you want to travel to Thailand? Royal road is 3 nights or 4 nights. Even 2 nights in Bangkok! Introduce the model course together!

In this article, I, who travel to Thailand every year, will explain the number of days needed for a trip to Thailand and a model course.

In conclusion, I recommend a 3 or 4-night trip to Thailand.

This article explains the points to keep in mind when deciding on the number of days, the model course according to the number of days, and even how to make a reservation at a reasonable price.

Use this as a reference when you go on your trip to Thailand!

The royal road to travel in Thailand is 3 or 4 nights

The royal days for a trip to Thailand are 4 days and 3 nights or 5 days and 4 nights.

Because Thailand is a country with many tourist attractions, three nights or more is recommended if possible.

Example of what to do in Thailand for 4 days and 3 nights

Day 1 Arrive in Thailand, go to night market
Day 2 Visit the 3 major temples
Day 3 Day trip to Ayutthaya
Day 4 Get a massage, do some shopping, and head to the airport.

The three major temples in Bangkok, the Royal Palace, Wat Pho, and Wat Arun, are all located close to each other and can be visited in one day.

If you want to extend your trip by one day and stay for 4 nights and 5 days, you can also visit the floating market, which is about a 2-hour drive from Bangkok.

You can enjoy Bangkok alone in as little as 3 days and 2 nights


If you don’t have a lot of time, you can limit your trip to the central area of Bangkok for 3 days and 2 nights.

Day 1 Arrive in Thailand, go to night market
Day 2 Visit the 3 major temples
Day 3 Get a massage, do some shopping, and head to the airport.

It’s a bit of a flop, but Bangkok is not a very big city, so you can take a bullet for the sights.

However, it is a bit hard to visit Ayutthaya if you have 3 days and 2 nights.

Ayutthaya takes two hours one way from Bangkok, so if you want to go there, try to plan for three nights.

Points to keep in mind when deciding the number of days to travel to Thailand

On the first day, you can only start sightseeing before dinner

On the first day, even if you leave Narita in the morning, you won’t be able to go sightseeing in Thailand until around 5:00 pm. .

Temples close in the evening, so you won’t be able to do much sightseeing on the first day.

Since the temples close in the evening, you won’t be able to do much sightseeing on the first day. You will only be able to go to the night market for dinner or to a rooftop bar.

On the last day, there is often little to see

Just like the first day, the last day often does not allow for much sightseeing.

For example, if you want to catch a flight out of Bangkok at 14:00, you need to arrive at the airport around 11:00.

Since you have to leave the hotel at 10:00 to go to the airport, you can hardly do any sightseeing on this day.

Be sure to check your flight time carefully on the last day.

Ayutthaya and the floating markets are at least two hours each way from Bangkok

When you travel to Thailand, you want to ride an elephant! I’m sure there are some people who think that.

In order to interact with elephants, you have to go to Ayutthaya, which is almost two hours one way from Bangkok.

Even many famous tourist spots are surprisingly far from Bangkok.

  • Ayutthaya: 4 hours round trip
  • Water market: 4 hours round trip
  • Mae Klong Market: 4 hours round trip
  • Kanchanaburi: 5 hours round trip

Especially in Ayutthaya, it will take you a whole day to see the ruins properly because they are located from place to place…

If there is a spot you definitely want to visit, make sure you know how long it takes to get there from Bangkok.

It will take you a whole day to go to the above spots.

If you want to visit multiple cities, you will need 7 days

If you are planning to visit multiple cities, such as Bangkok and Chiang Mai, or Bangkok and Phuket, you should set aside about 7 days.

If you are going to Phuket or Pattaya alone, you should allow 4 days for your trip.

A model course for a 4-day/3-night trip to Thailand

I’ve come up with a model course for 4 days and 3 nights on the high street.

I’ve actually traveled to Thailand on a schedule close to that one!

Day 1 Arrive Bangkok, go to Ratchadaw Market and Rooftop Bar
Day 2 Visit Wat Pho, Wat Arun and the Royal Palace
Day 3 Sightseeing in Ayutthaya
Day 4 Get a massage and go to the airport.

Day 1: Arrival in Bangkok

On the first day, we assume that we will arrive in Bangkok after 14:00.

We can check in to the hotel at around 17:00 for some reason.

Since it is difficult to visit temples, let’s go to the night market or rooftop bar.

15:30 Transfer from airport

The LCC arrives at Dom An Airport.

From the airport, you can take a bus or train to the center of Bangkok, which takes about an hour.

17:00 Check in at the hotel

Take a rest at the hotel and get ready to go to the night market.

18:30 Rachadh Market

The Rachadh Market is famous for its glittering tents.

It’s like a jewel box!

There are many places to eat food and stores that sell sundries.

If you get hungry, you can have your dinner here.

21:00 Rooftop Bar

After having dinner at the night market, you can visit the rooftop bar.

I recommend the rooftop bar at the Marriott Hotel, located at Thonglor Station.

The night view is outstanding and it’s more casual than other luxury hotels.

The rooftop bars in Bangkok are so beautiful, you must go there!

Day 2: Visit the three major temples

9:30 to the Royal Palace

On the second day, visit the three major temples.

The three major temples can be reached on foot from Sanam Chai MRT station.

Let’s start with the Royal Palace!

It’s a beautiful place no matter where you take your picture, so take your time and take a look around.

12:00 A break for a blue latte

When you’re done sightseeing the Royal Palace, take a break at a cafe called Blue Whale Maharat.

This place is close to the three major temples and can be reached on foot.

The cafe is famous for its “blue lattes”, but the cakes and food are also delicious.

14:00 Wat Pho

After taking a break at the cafe, let’s go to Wat Pho.

You’ll be amazed by the big Reclining Buddha!

The golden glow of the statue is very beautiful.

15:30 Enjoy mango sweets


After visiting Wat Pho, have a mango sweet at Make Me Mango, which you can walk to.

It’s a great place to get some great mango in a cute cafe.

16:30 Wat Arun

A short walk and ferry ride from the cafe will take you to Wat Arun on the other side of the river.

It is open until 17:30, so try to get to Wat Arun before 17:00.

The temple is very beautiful with detailed decorations.

18:30 Watch the sunset on the other side of the river

After visiting Wat Arun, take a ferry back to the other side of the river to watch the sunset.

Wat Arun is also beautiful and magical when it gets dark!

19:00

19:00 Dinner at Terminal 21

For dinner, we went to the food court at the Terminal 21 shopping center.

This is the cheapest food court in Bangkok.

For $3, you can have a full meal!

Day 3: Ayutthaya Sightseeing

9:00 Depart for Ayutthaya

On the third day, go sightseeing in Ayutthaya for the day.

Ayutthaya is about a two-hour train or car ride from Bangkok.

11:00 Ayutthaya sightseeing

Ayutthaya is a city of ruins, with a lot to see and do.

It’s a good idea to check out the sites you want to visit beforehand.

That chedi buried in tree roots is quite famous!

12:30 Lunch

We had lunch at a diner called “Pak Warn”.

14:00 Elephant Ride

Elephant ride is very popular in Ayutthaya.

You don’t have to ride an elephant to enjoy taking pictures with it.

16:00 Return to Bangkok

Leave Ayutthaya in the evening and return to Bangkok.

In this article, I will explain the attractions of Ayutthaya, how to get there, and how to get around the tourist spots…

19:00 Dinner at Siam Paragon

The famous shopping center, Siam Paragon.

It is located in Siam, which is a key transportation hub, so it is very easy to come here.

There’s also a handy and clean food court, so I recommend a night out here!

Day 4: Get a massage and head to the airport

Massage

A massage is a must when you come to Thailand.

This is a great way to relax and unwind before you leave Thailand.

You can get a massage for as little as 30 minutes.

Transfer to the airport

It takes about an hour from Bangkok city to Don Mueang airport.

It’s very congested on rainy days, so be careful.

If your last day is a night departure

If you are leaving at night on the fourth day, the following spots are recommended.

If your fourth day is a night departure, the following spots are all located in Bangkok and are easy to visit.

・Chatuchak Market (Saturday and Sunday only)

・Wat Phak Nam

・Jim Thompson’s House
