Getting married in Bangkok

Bangkok, the vibrant capital of Thailand, is a city of contrasts and diversity. Officially known as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, Bangkok is not only the political, economic, and cultural heart of Thailand but also a regional hub for tourism and commerce. The city's landscape is a fascinating blend of traditional and modern, with gleaming temples and palaces standing alongside towering skyscrapers.


With world-renowned temples, a nightlife scene that’s second to none, and first-class accommodations tailored to your preferences, nothing is impossible to find in Bangkok. Whether it’s a traditional Thai ceremony amidst the grandeur of stunning temples or a modern, lavish reception in a high-rise hotel overlooking the city skyline, Bangkok can cater to your wedding dreams.

After the wedding ceremony, you can choose to head over to Asiatique: The Riverfront, an iconic night market where you’ll be met with a variety of shops, restaurants, and fun rides like the carousel and Thailand’s tallest Ferris wheel. Alternatively, explore the world’s largest weekend markets at Chatuchak, where you’ll find a virtually endless array of food, art, antiques, and fashion to choose from.

As Bangkok is situated right at the heart of Thailand, you have the option to spend your honeymoon near the coast or in ancient cities in case you plan to escape the bustling metropolis. After all, you’re only a few hours’ drive away from Hua Hin, Pattaya, and Ayutthaya.


With a city as big as Bangkok, you won’t even know where to start, let alone when to end!

Chinatown (Yaowarat): Chinatown is located on the elongated Yaowarat Road in Bangkok and is the largest Chinese community in Thailand. There, you’ll be overwhelmed by its sensory feasts of sights, sounds, and flavors. Wander through the cross-cultural architecture and markets or admire its ornate Chinese temple.

Chatuchak Weekend Market: As one of the world's largest weekend markets, Chatuchak is a paradise for couples seeking unique treasures and vibrant local experiences. With over 15,000 stalls spread across 25 acres, you can dive into its labyrinthine alleys and discover everything from handicrafts and fashion to exotic street food.

Asiatique: The Riverfront: Positioned adjacent to the scenic Chao Phraya River, Asiatique presents a fusion of shopping, dining, and entertainment. Explore the boardwalk, sample diverse cuisines, and discover unique souvenirs, or choose to go on Thailand’s largest Ferris wheel, which sits at a height of 60 meters.

Khao San Road: Khao San Road, renowned as Bangkok's backpacker hub, is filled with street food stalls, lively bars, and eclectic shops, where you can browse and immerse yourself in Thailand’s nightlife scene.

Bangkok Floating Markets: The floating markets of Bangkok offer a unique glimpse into traditional Thai culture and commerce. Navigate through bustling waterways, all the while sampling fresh fruits, savory snacks, and local delicacies.

The best time to be in Bangkok is between November and February when the weather is just about perfect to hold a wedding. A little later between March to June is Thailand’s summer season, and it might be too hot for some. You can expect windy weather and thunderstorms from July to October which is the rainy season, so it is important to time it all just right if you are planning an outdoor ceremony. Thankfully, however, Bangkok has many more indoor options being the capital city, so if you are locked into a wedding during the rainy season, the City of Angels can still offer you an unforgettable event.
