Attraction in Bangkok

Bangkok started as a small trading center and a port community just about the west bank of the Chao Phraya River many years ago. Now, the city has matched its pace with current times; however, the glory and splendor of its illustrious past still prevail. Be it stunning palaces, spectacular temples, world-renowned floating market, or colorful and vibrant Chinatown; all these renowned attractions come with an intriguing story to tell.

Here are some of the top tourist attractions in Bangkok that you must never miss:

 Wat Pho/Wat Po

Wat Pho is the oldest and largest temple in Bangkok, surrounding the Grand Palace. Home to over 1000 Buddha images, it’s most renowned for its big reclining Buddha, 150ft, covered in valued metal leaf. There’s a small entry fee, and guides are available. 

 Wat Arun (The Temple of Dawn)

Wat Arum is named after Aruna, a god of dawn in India; however, the remarkable views of the Temple of Dawn are at sunset. Situated on the Western bank of the Chao Phraya, Wat Arun dates to the 17th century. 

The Temple of Dawn includes four smaller temples accentuated with seashells and bits of porcelains once utilized as ballast by boats coming to Bangkok from China. Also, there are pavilions, an impressive Ordination Hall, and statues of historic Chinese soldiers and animals. 

Chatuchak Weekend Marketplace

About 10 thousand individual stalls are sorted out in color-coded sections full of clothes, antiques, trendy fashions, carvings, and intricate wooden designs, fish, fluffy dogs, masks, food stalls, and singing wild birds restaurants, and entertainers. This is not only for tourist market local guests and people gathered all weekend, buying, eating as well as window shopping. 

Khao San Road

This is an ideal place to visit for those with a limited budget. A former hippie enclave, this 3-block street has been gentrified in years. Ready to witness brand new hotels, cheap and excellent restaurants, cafes offering free internet, and travel agencies. Its offbeat and kinky appeal can still be felt in massage shops and bars. 

In just a few walk from Liberty Square and Grand Palace, there’s always something new taking place on this road, eat or just take a stroll down the road. 

 Siam Niramit Cultural Show

This is described as a must-visit superb performance on a big stage, which features over 150 performers with hundreds of costumes.

The perfect time to visit Bangkok is between the months of December and March. The city of Bangkok is hot and even hotter and moist in the rainy season, May to October.
