best places to see in Bangkok


City: Bangkok Metropolis

Province: Krung Thep

Country: Thailand


Depends on your preference, Bangkok has a wide variety of must-see places. If you are into Thai temples, don't miss the grand Grand Palace and the Temple of Emerald Buddha, Temple of the Dawn, Wat Pho and Wat Benchamabophit. Palaces like Vimanmek and the Dusit Throne Hall are also worth visiting. If you wants to see Thai ways of life, you may visit Jim Thompson House of some traditional Thai life introduction, Chinatown for the one of the best food scenes, Chatuchak for how local go shopping, and Siam district for urban aspect of Bangkok. There are also many museums in Bangkok to visit, but I would recommend the latest one that just opened its door - the Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall - it is just fabulous. Check this article out
Hi Jerome
Go with Chinawut's answers, you can always to these answers once you get to Bankok. Have a wonderful stay.
Here are a few options for you:
- Grand Palace and Emerald Buddha, then head to Temple of Dawn (a must-see for tourists). Take the Chao Phraya River boats and see Bangkok life from a different point of view.

- Jim Thompson house

- Weekend market at Chatuchak (the best place to get anything under the sun!) You will experience a market place on a whole new level!

- Siam area is for the young, hip and cosmopolitan Thais. You will see here a lot of Thais showing their own fashion statements

- Pratu Nam market for shopping. If you want branded clothes, go to Central World, Siam Paragon or the near by Siam Discovery Mall

- Try the dinner cruise on Chao Phraya river. Experience great Thai food while you cruise along the famous river of kings

- Nightlife at its best in Silom area. Also has a stretch of night market to buy clothes and accessories. Clubs, bars and restaurants are all over the place, frequented by tourists, expats and Thais.

Hope this helps!
