The following 9 mobile applications were the best mobile apps in Bangkok that we found useful while staying in Bangkok. We hope will find this article useful.
Now that Uber has packed up and left Southeast Asia, Grab, the pick-up service app, makes it easy, painless and affordable to get around Bangkok. With Grab, riders can choose from a range of different vehicle choices, including taxi, mototaxi, or a car that can hold up to seven passengers. Besides drives, Grab also has the Grab Bike feature, which is a delivery service. Whatever you need, the Grab Bike driver will get it for you.
Food Panda is an app that enable users to consume an abundance of food without ever needing to leave your accommodation’s comfort. There are a range of different restaurants to choose from with this delivery app, including Indian, Thai, vegetarian and drinks.
If you love food and you love to get a good bargain, then make sure to download Eatigo, which provides massive discounts up to 50 percent at restaurants in Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Pattaya during non-peak dining hours. This may not be the app for discovering hidden gems, but if you’re looking for a bargain buffet at one of the city’s top hotels, then this is for you.
Lazada is considered a legitimate alternative for Amazon. Lazada started expanding as an e-commerce platform in Thailand in 2011. You can access a wide range of items, from appliances to jewelry, once you download the software on your mobile phone. The app works well and deliveries are very quick; however, many items for sale have only the details and description written in Thai (even if you see the website in English).
The Asian messaging app similar to Whatsapp could be worth downloading. In Thailand, everyone, really everyone, use it!
You will need to include your phone number once installed, type in your name as it appears and all of your contacts, and upload your photo. Like Whatsapp, Line also provides the ability to make calls, send messages and build chat groups, as well as video calls. There is also the option to post your photos online in pure Instagram style on what is called the “timeline”.
The interesting thing is the amount of emoticons available for all occasions (and most loved by Thais). Some are free to download, others include a fee. You may also opt to use your previously created Line ID to add your friends both through your phone number and via your previously created Line ID.
