Experience the heart of Bangkok
Bangkok, the extraordinary capital of Thailand: it's noisy, crowded, colorful, exciting, infuriating, and smile inducing. Pulsing with energy and an intriguing sense of design, Bangkok is a fascinating city that represents Southeast Asia's tension between the developed and developing worlds. A serious hotel boom, along with the arrival of innovative restaurants, one-of-a-kind boutiques, and edgy art galleries, transformes the city into one of Asia’s most exciting metropolises. In spite of having a tendency to be little overwhelming, this amazing city has much to offer to both a calm spirite as well as a wild child. And we've got you covered! Here are some of many incredible recommendations you definitely should not miss.
One of the most major historical tourist attractions in Bangkok and home of the emerald Buddha, the royal compound of the Grand Palace lives up to its name, with spectacular structures that would put the most decadent modern monarchs to shame. Built in 1782, the grand palace was the royal residence for generations and is still used for important ceremonies and accommodating heads of state.
Considered as a place of healing, and centuries famous for its pharmacy and as Thailand's first "university", Wat Pho is the oldest temple in Bangkok.
Today Wat Pho is best known for the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, where you'll find a statue so big (45 m long and 15 m high), it cannot be viewed in its entirety only appreciated in sections.
Wat Traimit, also known as the Temple of the Golden Buddha- reveals a breathtaking 3.5 m Buddha cast from 5.5 tons of solid gold, making it a sight you definitely shouldn't miss!
Wat Suthat is one of the oldest and most beautiful of Bangkok's Buddhist temples. Apart from its delightful architecture, the temple boasts some exceptionally interesting wall paintings. Wat Suthat is less popular than some of the other temple complexes in the city, so you'll enjoy a more peaceful and intimate experience here.
The old Wang Na Palace stands as a testament to fascinating ancient and contemporary Thai history. Visitors can see regalia, religious and ceremonial artifacts, ceramics, games, weaponry, musical instruments and the Viceroy's throne, as well as an impressive collection of Buddha figures arranged according to period.
Chatuchak Market is Bangkok's sprawling weekend market that is the largest in the world. Here shoppers find everything from jewelry and religious icons to animals and delicious street foods. There are 15,000 stalls, offering just about anything you can dream up. This is a great place to mingle with locals and immerse yourself in everyday Thai life.
The popularity of floating markets once earned Bangkok the nickname "Venice of the East", so for an even more interesting market experience, you can arrange a tour to Damnoen Saduak, a famous floating market located in Ratchaburi (about 1.5 hours outside Bangkok) were you will be able to buy fresh and delicious foods and interact with locals in an authentic way.
Khao San Road is Bangkok's infamous backpacker district, a neighborhood jam-packed with guesthouses, food vendors, clothing stalls, and travelers from every corner of the globe.
It is a great place to pick up a few pairs of the baggy fisherman pants - the perennial staple of every backpacker's wardrobe when trekking through Thailand, browse the treasures in a used bookstore, and dig into some delicious Indian food from a neighborhood restaurant. 
In order to experience Bangkok, you have to try to the cuisine. You'll have no trouble at all finding vendors to tempt you with treats, and you haven't really done the city without chowing down on grilled meats and fish, soups, fresh fruit, and myriad other dishes. This is a quintessential Thailand experience, tucking into a delicious (if mysterious) meal, surrounded by the chaos and heat of the city.
And you might want to visit a shopping mall for kick while traveling. Well, Terminal 21 has a special flair - even by Thailand's shopping standards. Every floor of the mall has been themed to a different international city. 
Other malls of note include the high-end Siam Paragon, and adjacent Siam Discovery, which has more moderately priced chains and fun cafes (including one decorated entirely with teddy bears and toy soldiers!).

Why not visit Toronto Museums and attractions for less, or even free.
 
If visiting the city of Toronto, Canada, and looking for something fun, interesting and of course cheap, why not visit some of the excellent museums there? Many museums there offer free days, or free hours that you should take advantage of.
One of the first we recommend would be the Royal Ontario Museum that houses well over six million sights ranging from international cultures to natural history. This is a very busy museum and during normal hours charges $15 per person admission. However, if looking for something to do say on a Friday afternoon before dinner or a show, after 4:30 PM your admission is half price.
The museum of Contemporary Canadian Art offers you a unique and sometimes mind-blowing experience with some of the artwork inside these walls, and therefore, a site to see. If you are in town between Tuesday and Sunday, you’re in luck because it’s “donations only” between 11 AM and 6 PM. Keep in mind that these donations help provide this forum for people like you to see this art, so please give what you can.
For more of a “classic” view of the art world as it was and now is, the Art Gallery of Ontario is another excellent choice to spend a few hours with the world’s cultures. This art gallery has its permanent displays of some famous artist like Lain Baxter and Picasso, as well as some seasonal displays, therefore something for everyone.
Another fantastic way to visit some museums, historical sites and attractions for free is as easy as getting a library pass. That’s right, visit the Toronto Public Library, get a card and take out an Art Pass. With that pass you and your family can visit some awesome sites, including historical sites and even the zoo. Each of the fifty library branches offer three passes every week to the Toronto Zoo, so why not get to go for free?
Another benefit from the pass is admission for the family to the Aga Kahn Museum, which is quite extraordinary. There are rotating exhibits on display, an example of which is available in mid 2015, “A Thirst for Riches”, featuring drawings from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Another rather cool choice for ticket holders especially those traveling with youngsters is the Black Creek Pioneer Village. Not only will you discover the history of the early pioneers back in the early 1800’s here in Toronto, you’ll live it. You will see how they lived, how they dressed, cooked, and survived. There are actual artifacts from the period that today still are functional on display.
The village itself is located on over 30 acres, with building housing actual furniture from the early years. You can even experience the farm animals performing their duties as they did in the 1800’s.
And for the adults, especially Dad, you will surly enjoy the tour of the Historic Brewery in the Black Creek Brewery in the heart of the village.

Dallas for families on a tight budget
 
Dallas can be an expensive destination for you and the family, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it has to be. There are a bunch of fun and even free things to do here to keep from hearing that dreaded “I’m bored Dad”!
Lets go to the hospital! No, not because anyone’s sick, but because they have this awesome train display at the Children’s Medical Center of Dallas. Those little trains are chugging away from 6am until 10pm every day in the lobby. Your children will be experiencing the largest permanent train display in the country.
Another great experience for the youngsters is the Nash Farm in Tarrant County where you all experience what life was for the early settlers. This farm is one of the oldest remaining original farms of its kind in Texas. You know your children will just love jumping up in that wagon and being hauled around the farm by that tractor. It does cost $3 to get in but what the heck.
Now then, you all are in Texas, and Dallas is about as Texan as it gets. Both young and old will find some interesting and historic facts when you visit the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame. This is where all the top cowboys and cowgirls are given tribute. You’re also going to take a gander at some sixty wagons, carriages and sleighs for western history.
A day at the Fort Worth Zoo that by the way is a nationally ranked zoo, features some 350 different exotic and native animals. For the little kiddies there’s a petting zoo and even a carousel. Mom and Dad, it’s $12 for the day, children $9 and little ones under 2 are free.
If you have some little history buffs in the family, a few hours at the Dallas Texas Civil War Museum might just be in order. The museum is set up to reflect actual artifacts from the Civil War, including clothing from that period as well as photographs.
Another excellent adventure is a few hours in the Frontiers of Flight Museum, which is one massive airplane hanger filled with well over 25 different historical airplanes. The star of the show however always seems to be the actual Apollo 7 Command Module on display.
When the weather starts getting hot and sticky, there’s one thing that please everyone in the family. That would be Surf and Swim, the 4 acre water park featuring Wally’s Cove with its ½ million gallon wave pool! You’ll find plenty of room to relax on shore as well as water to get lost in. From the clear inter-tubes to approved life jackets for the kids, you can achieve piece of mind here while the children play. There’s also some pretty good food and drinks on board in this attraction, at reasonable prices.
Last let us give you a great idea for lunch on your visit that will save you a bundle of cash, and fill you up with goodness.
Head to the Dallas Deck Park downtown, where the outdoor park offers clean environment seating. Here you will find many food trucks offering a plethora of food choices. Just the savings of not tipping is worth it.
