Bangkok's famous palace complex was built in 1782 and features several magnificent buildings including Wat Phra Kaeo (Temple of the Emerald Buddha), which contains a beautiful Emerald Buddha that dates back to the 14th century.
Coach park is a bit of a trek, in the heat, to walk to Royal Palace entrance and before you enter to need to make sure you are dressed modestly or get the correct cover-up attire from sellers nearby. Once inside you will be probably...More
Like many other reviews, it’s a must place to visit at least for once. Wear decently, no sleeveless or shorts. It was crowded when we went even during rainy days. Get a guide book so you won’t miss out the history and the thing you...More
The buildings were very interesting and the variety of history that went along with them. My favorite was the Phra Wiharn Yod that was decorated with porcelain ceramic from the Chinese ballast off their cargo ships!

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district.

Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
