Experience the stunning Buddhist architecture and ornament, massive markets and flowing canals of one of Southeast Asia's crown jewels, Bangkok, Thailand.
Wat Pho - Bangkok’s oldest and largest temple, Wat Pho has the country’s longest Reclining Buddha. Built in the 16th century and reconstructed by Rama I (r. 1782-1809), it is a typical Thai temple, with resident monks, a school, massage pavilions, and a generally lived-in feel. Around the grounds are statues and chedi (stupas) glittering with mosaics.
Bangkok’s Canals - In the 19th century, Bangkok was known as the “Venice of the East,” since all transportation was by canal. Today, most of the canals to the east of the Chao Phraya River have been filled in to created new roads. However, the area to the west remains much as it was in the 19th century, with a network of waterways spreading out into the countryside. Here, visitors can get a taste of traditional canal side life and visit a few attractions such as WatArun and the Royal Barge Museum along the way.
Grand Palace and WatPhraKaeo - In 1782, Rama I (r.1782-1809) established the capital in Bangkok, where he built WatPhraKaeo to house the country’s most precious Buddha image. In 1784, he had the Grand Palace built, which became the home of the royal family. No king has resided there since the early 20th century, but the complex is a stunning display of Thai art and architecture and a truly memorable sight.
Ayutthaya -From the 14th century onwards, Ayutthaya was the capital of an independent kingdom until the city was sacked by the Burmese in 1767. It was never re-inhabited. Today, Ayutthaya is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and its ruins give a sense of the city’s former size and glory as well as offering an insight into Thailand’s cultural heritage.
WatArun - WatArun is named for Aruna, the Indian god of dawn, because King Taksin arrived here at sunrise on an October day in 1767 to establish Thonburi at Siam’s new capital. With it prominent prang (towers), the temple shows a strong Khmer influence. All the prang are ornamentally encrusted with colourful broken porcelain.
DamnoenSaduak Floating Market - for visitors the image of floating vendors in traditional dress remains quintessential Thai. So each morning, vendors and tourists alike descend on DamnoenSaduak to re-enact scenes from an idealized past. Visitors can explore the rural canals, take pictures of colourful boats, and shop for souvenirs.
National Museum - Thailand’s premier museum offers a great introduction to Thai history. Inside, the Buddhaisawan Chapel is one of the country’s most precious treasures, as is the PhraSihing Buddha images it houses. Other highlights include well-preserved fragments of Dvaravati and Srivajaya statues, as well as Ramkhamhaeng inscription.
Chatuchak Weekend Market - Chatuchak market, held every Saturday and Sunday, is the biggest market in Thailand. An estimated quarter of a million people visit this veritable shopaholic’s paradise every day. The vast site has over 15,000 stalls but products are grouped into sections making it easy to find specific items.
Dusit Park - Sometimes referred to as the New Royal City, Dusit is home to several royal residences and government offices. Dusit Park was created by Rama V (r. 1868-1910) in an attempt to emulate parks that he had seen on visits to Europe. The green and shady paths are a pleasure to walk along, with many interesting sights on offer.
Jim Thompson’s House - Jim Thompson, an American who came to Bangkok in 1945, is credited with having revived the Thai art of silk weaving. His traditional Thai house is filled with Southeast Asian antiques, paintings and sculptures. Surrounded by a lush garden, the compound consists of five other teak houses on stilts, which also showcase part of the collection.
Bangrak - is a cool and hip little place with excellent Thai food! The place has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, with live music and even an art exhibition now and then.They also serve great smoothies and drinks (with alcohol).

Chao Phraya River ferry - If you enjoy boat cruises, the river ferry along the Chao Phraya River is a scenic ride you shouldn’t miss. The ferry always runs the same route. Unless it’s the Express ferry, it’ll make a stop on both sides of the bank and on each docking station on the line. Hours: 6:15A to 7P
Skytrainand Subway - In the sweat of Thai heat, flying over the city traffic by Sky-train or zipping underground on the metro, presents an air-conditioned luxury. The BTS Sky-train offers beautiful aerial views over the city, while the MRT subway serves up a no-frills straight shot to your destination. Both are perfect solutions to averting Bangkok’s god awful peak-time traffic! Hours: 6A- midnight.
Long-tail and khlong boats - The khlongs (aka canals) off the Chao Phraya River hold a waterway life, flavored with river houses and floating markets. Long-tail boatsare sightseeing taxis to explore it with. At the floating markets, there are fixed price stations but if you want your own personal hire, you’ll have to bargain with the boat driver. Hours: 5:30A-8:30PM
Motorbike taxis - What’s the Bangkok scene without these cowboy bandits? These vest-wearing Soiknights skirt through the streets on petrol-filled tanks offering rides. The Thai don’t seem to mind. For locals, men and women alike, this is the perfect way to get to work in a direct shot.
Tuk-tuks -You go low and they’ll go high; that’s the art of haggling with tuk-tuk drivers.
Taxis - With Bangkok traffic being the meaner than the L.A. freeway, the taxi is probably the last thing you’ll want to take! It’s perfect for getting around in the evening, after the river ferry and Sky-trainclose.Always make sure your taxi uses a meter.
Long Distance and Overnight Trains - By daylight, it’s a regular train, but at night it can transform into a first-rate hotel on wheels. The Thai railway system strives for hospitably, cleanliness and order.
