My respects to their beloved King who recently passed away. Even though the country is in mourning for at least 30days if not for an entire year, this park is a beautiful one to visit. Nature has its way of putting colour to otherwise, currently, black life. Be respectful to the Thai people, but at the same time, soak in... More

Beautiful Setting. Well organized and conducted by polite helpful soldiers and police. Senior Military Officers guiding the final steps were very humble and polite.

It has also been at the centre of royal ceremony since Bangkok was founded. For examples: for the King’s Birthday (5 December), Royal Ploughing Ceremony (9 May). It is worth to visit here... More

This place reminded me of our "Mall" in my city, a big, wide open space between our Capitol Building and Lincoln Memorial. It is generally used as venue for big public events. My understanding is that Sanam Luang serves the same purpose. When I first visited it during the second week of February, exhibits were regarding Buddhism and some conservation... More

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
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. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. 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.
