Bangkok isn’t the best city for walking any long distances due to the heat and humidity, especially in the hot season. Heat exhaustion can be a problem and creeps up on you. In the rainy season, you may encounter heavy storms, lightning, and localized flooding. Rattanakosin Island, Ratchaprasong Shopping District, and Chinatown are all easily walkable areas of the city.
