    This is an incredible place, everywhere you turn there is another fabulous sculpture/building. You should not miss this place if you are in Bangkok. Remember to dress with long pants & cover the shoulders. Remember to take off your shoes when requested.

    Jim Thompson's House and Museum

    6 Soi Kasemsan 2, Bangkok 10330 Thailand
    25 reviews

    Visiting the complex of houses i could perfectly imagine myself living actually there. The traditional architecture with extremely good taste in decor, gardens, the silks on the furniture...everything was a small paradise. Loved the guided tour, to get details on how Jim Thomson managed to promote and develop the silk business. Loved it and you shouldn t miss it while ...

    Wat Arun

    34 Arun Amarin Road, Arun Ammarin 10600 Thailand
    70 reviews

    Wat Arun offers one of the most dramatic views in Bangkok. I crossed the river around sun set, and the reflecting sunlight from the tower were amazingly beautiful. It shined like gold. Wat Arun means the temple of dawn. The temple was renamed after the Indian god of dawn (Aruna) and in honour of the literal and symbolic founding of ...

    Wat Pho

    2 Sanamchai Road, Phraborom Maha Ratchawang 10200 Thailand
    65 reviews

    This is my second favorite sight in Bangkok after the Grand Palace. Definitely a must see. One of the highlights is a massage at the resident massage school. Waits can be long so go directly to the school when you arrive and get a number so that you can spend your time seeing the temple rather than waiting at the ...

    Temple of the Emerald Buddha

    Na Phralan Road, Bangkok 10200 Thailand
    62 reviews

    Stunning must see inside the Grand Palace. The statue changes outfits with the seasons so gives you something interesting to look for if you visit multiple times. Take a little time to sit and enjoy the temple. Packed with tourists but the details are stunning if you take the time to look and you might as well enjoy a bit ...

    Temple of the Reclining Buddha

    248 Thanon Thai Wang, Bangkok 10200 Thailand
    95 reviews

    Stunning temple inside the Wat Pho complex. One of the highlights of Bangkok and easy walking distance from the Grand Palace. At busy times, grab your number for a massage before going to see the buddha. It will save you time and a massage here is a must.

    Bangkok River

    Bangkok, Thailand
    29 reviews

    I love watching the activity on the river. Better yet, I enjoy catching a river express taxi and cruising up and down the river. You can link to the sky train system at some spots which makes getting around quite enjoyable and efficient.

    Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep

    Tambon Suthep, Chiang Mai 50200 Thailand
    31 reviews

    I preferred Chiang Mai to Bangkok and this was one of my favorite places within Chiang Mai. The spiritual energy of this place, despite tourists, was rejuvenating.

    Yaowarat Road, Chakkaphat 10110 Thailand
    46 reviews

    A classic stop for any visitor. The streets are full of Chinese shops and early in the evening plenty of city lights makes this district very nice. Have a dinner (of course) on the street, in order to taste the best mix between Thai and Chinese cuisine.

    Life on the river is varied and interesting. Each trip to Bangkok I strive to spend time on the river.

    MBK Shopping Center

    444 Thanon Phaya Thai, Wang Mai, Pathum Wan, Bangkok 10400, Thailand
    90 reviews

    MBK is NUTS - think of all the street market stands placed in stores and stacked side by side and on top of each other. You need to come in here with a purpose. Their movie theater is very nice and spacious, though one thing to note (and this is true about all movie theaters in Thailand) is that a ...

    It's just a normal bridge if you never watching "The river Kwai"'s film or known about the story of this bridge before. The landscape is ok, you can also try seating on train and go for a short distance through the jungle, should visit when go to Kanchanaburi, recommend for history traveller.

    Siam Paragon

    991 Rama 1 Rd Bangkok 10330 Thailand
    72 reviews

    A fantastic upscale mall with an over-the-top food court and grocery market. My first visit was a few years ago with my daughter. She was 11 months old and it was just dad and daughter out on the town for the day. Drew a lot of attention as this seems to be a rare sigt in Thailand. Started by catching ...

    Alexander Lamont

    13/3 Soi Sathon, Bangkok, Thailand
    2 reviews

    Uber stylish home design store that is a lovely mix of Thai and European influences. You've likely seen his signature bronze and gold leaf bowls overseas. Boutiques are run inside a number of hotels and you'll also find his wares at a few high end department stores.

    Thonburi Khlongs

    1 review

    One of my favorite Bangkok experiences. Rent a boat anywhere along the Chao Phraya river (the Shangri-La and River City are both good launching points) and have the driver take you through the small canals / channels that feed into the river. This is a great way to catch a glimpse of daily life in Bangkok.
