Must See Attractions of Bangkok
- The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew represent the best known structures of Bangkok. Try to get in early at the opening times as the crowds build up quickly for these major attractions, and expect to spend the better half of a day on this large site. The Grand Palace was built towards the end of the 18th century, and housed the Royal Court of Thailand for a century and a half. Wat Phra Kaew, known in English as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, is the most important Buddhist temple in the entire Thailand as a matter of fact, a group of highly decorated, carefully maintained buildings, one of them housing the famous image of Buddha carved of a single block of emerald.
- Wat Arun, or the Temple of Dawn, is a site you cannot miss. Carefully decorated with sea shells and delicate pieces of porcelain, it's an impressive and yet gracious structure. Expect to face quite a steep climb, but the view from the top will make you forget the efforts of getting there.
- The floating markets of Bangkok used to be one of the most distinctive features. Today, markets such as Tha Kha, Bang Wu Wiang, Taling Chan and Damnoen Saduak are held mostly for the amusement of the tourists, but they still make a site that you'll remember for the rest of your life.
- Wat Pho, or the temple of the Reclining Buddha, is a place where you must take a guide to show you along because there's so much more to see than the giant Buddha. The temple has long been a center of sciences, and you'll find a large collection of artifacts, and schools that are still active today, such as the College of Traditional Medicine.
- Jim Thompson House is an unlikely spot of seclusion and peacefulness right in the center of the bustling city. With so much to see and do in Bangkok, you might think you won't have enough time to visit a memorial house, but Jim Thompson played a vital part in restoring the traditional Thai silk industry not to mention that the house itself is a model of delicate architecture, filled with precious artifacts.
