    The Grand Palace

    155 reviews

    If you have time for only one historical sight in Bangkok, this should be it. The Palace is actually a collection of sights which includes Wat Phra Kaew (the temple of the Emerald Buddha). The complex is absolutely stunning and is a great place to take photographs (at least on the outside). Be forewarned that taxi and tuk tuk drivers ...

    Chatuchak Weekend Market

    137 reviews

    Great chaotic market full of unnecessary things You have to have :-) You can find there everything and you can spend there all days long. Of course you can bargain the prices so in the end everything is very cheap. You can also enjoy local cuisine with music.

    Temple of the Reclining Buddha

    96 reviews

    Within the complex of Wat Pho, and its most famous feature, this enormous sculpture of the Buddha reclining at the moment of his death and entry into mahaparinirvana really has to be seen to be appreciated. If you're going to photograph it, bring a wide-angle lens, as it's difficult to get the whole sculpture in perspective.

    Khao San Road

    108 reviews

    A backpacker's ghetto where you're likely to see a whole host of farang from all over the world drunk out of their skulls, scoring fake documents or selling their iPods to extend their trips in Southeast Asia. The locals have long since moved on but occassionaly they pop in to see what kind of aberrant manifestations the foreigners have made ...

    Wat Arun

    72 reviews

    Stunning Khmer-style spires mosaiced with millions of tile fragments left behind centuries ago by a passing Chinese merchant junk, Wat Arun is perhaps the most striking single temple in Bangkok. Better still, while the Chapel of the Emerald Buddha (especially) and Wat Pho tend to draw big tourist crowds, Wat Arun across the river is a comparatively quiet and laid-back ...

    Siam Paragon

    72 reviews

    Uber-luxury-mall at the heart of central Bangkok, Siam Paragon -- with its superb food court, top-floor movie theatre, and ample opportunities for people-watching -- is my favorite place to escape the heat and humidity of a Bangkok afternoon. They have the amazing Kinokuniya bookstore and 9 baht ice-cream on the bottom floor. Enough said.

    Temple of the Emerald Buddha

    64 reviews

    Wat Phra Kaew is considered the most important Buddhist temple in Thailand. Located on the grounds of the Grand Place, this is an attraction on its own. The 15th century Phra Kaew Morakot (the Emerald Buddha) housed here, was carved from a single piece of jade. The Buddha is dressed in robes, which are changed by the king in an ...

    Wat Pho

    66 reviews

    Wat Pho is the largest wat in Bangkok and far more manageable than The Grand Palace. The reclining Buddha is very impressive, though when I visited there was some renovation going on and the halls were extremely dark. Be prepared that it will be difficult to see the Buddha in its entirety, since a) it's so large, and b) the ...

    Siam Square

    47 reviews

    Siam and Chilom are the two main "city" areas, full of malls, etc. Really good idea to spend time in Bangkok city centre, as the size of the malls is incredible!

    Patpong Night Market

    59 reviews

    I would love this place if it weren't for the constant bombardment of people trying to get you to step into an alley for a "special massage" or "lady show." If you can keep focused and ignore the avid salesmen, it's a great cultural experience....but it can also be a bit disparaging. And while the contents of the night market ...

    Terminal 21

    38 reviews

    Now I found that Gourmet Market under ground floor. This shop is smaller than Siam's one. But you can find good quality foods, beverages, etc. It must be useful. In food court you can have nice Thai meal less than 100 bahts. (I did not have other than Thai food. So I do not know other meal is less or ...

    As a bit of history, Thailand (and Bangkok particularly) has a large Chinese population. Some have told me that it's mostly made up of refugees, but this hasn't been fact checked. In any case, their presence has created one of the larger Chinatowns in the world. The good: tasy chinese food, great cotton/fabric, and those ubiquitous trinkets found everywhere are ...

    Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep

    31 reviews

    This was part of a day visit with a driver out of Chiang Mai and up into the mountains a bit. It was in addition to a trip to Bhuping Palace. There are pretty many steps to get to the top but it is worth it. You have to pass alot of kids posing in traditional garb hoping for pictures ...

    Maya Bay

    28 reviews

    Summer is low season here, and some travelers are put off by the rougher seas, but a trip in the summer months means avoiding the crowds of winter and having this cliff-covered bay largely to yourself.

    Railay Beach

    26 reviews

    Good sunset from Railay West, good nightlife on Railay East. Too many longtail boats on Railay West and Pranang Beach. The famous beach is now a ferry parking lot. Such a shame.

    Phi phi island used to be so beautiful, just a huge pity about the indiscriminate overdevelopment of the island.

    Night Bazaar

    32 reviews

    A big market full of a lot of cool artisanal stuff as well as plenty of touristy crap (not that there's anything wrong with touristy crap). You can also grab a snack, get a food massage, visit a fish spa, or have your picture taken with fabulous ladyboys here.
