    The Grand Palace

    Thanon Na Phra Lan, Phra Borom Maha Ratchawang, Phra Nakhon, Bangkok 10200 Thailand
    154 reviews

    The Grand Palace is most historical place to visit in Thailand. It reminds me a lot of my childhood growing up in Rangoon, Burma surrounded by lots of temples and pagodas.

    Temple of the Emerald Buddha

    Na Phralan Road, Bangkok 10200 Thailand
    62 reviews

    part of the Royal Palace complex in old town Bangkok, so if you see one you'll see the other. Make sure to make it a stop on your itinerary - it is glittering gold and spectacular. The Emerald Buddha Temple is the holiest temple in Thailand, and you will see Thai people doing offerings here and praying to the Buddha. ...

    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 ...

    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.

    Ancient City

    Thai Ban Mai, Mueang Samut Prakan, Samut Prakan, Thailand
    19 reviews

    Also called Muang Boran, the Ancient City contains incredible scale or sometimes replica buildings of famous ancient monuments, landmarks and buildings. It also has mini markets with people making and selling handicrafts and old-style Thai snacks. Allow the whole day to ensure you aren't pressed for time, and hire a golf buggy. A bit more expensive, but totally worth it ...

    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.

    Learn about Thai art and history !!! Bangkok National Museum is the main branch museum and houses the largest collection of Thai art and artifacts in Thailand. It's located on Naphrathat road ( near The Grand Palace) . I think it's definitely worth a visit once. ^___^

    Great place to see Thai history show. Lots of interesting history and facts about Thailand. Not very traditional but beautiful all the same. Have gift shops you can buy souvenirs, though a bit expensive. You can take photos with the performers after the show.

    Golden Mount

    Boriphat Road & Lan Luand Road Intersection, Bang bat 10100 Thailand
    19 reviews

    This is not only about an invaluable piece of history and not to say gold, but also the story of one of the luckiest men alive. The priest what was in charge of this temple felt the need for some statues of Buddha to show people. Another temple north of Bangkok had some sstatues of clay which they thought had ...

    Victory Monument

    Phahon Yothin Highway, Anusawari, Thailand
    20 reviews

    It's a statue, best seen at night, on the way back from place X (it seems to either always be on the way back, or I just always got ripped off by cab drivers). Other than that, there isn't much to say. I'm also a bit unclear as to what the victory refers to (Thailand was never conquered, as far ...

    Madame Tussaud's

    Siam Car Park, Rama I, Pathum Wan, Phathumwan, Bangkok, Thailand
    6 reviews

    The latest world-class tourist attraction to open in Bangkok is Madame Tussaud’s. They already have one in Hong Kong and Shanghai but this is the first Madame Tussaud’s to open in South East Asia. I think it is also the first branch to open in a shopping mall. It can be found on the 6th floor of Siam Discovery in ...

    Kanchanaburi Province, Ban Huai Krachao 71170 Thailand
    4 reviews

    Most people do a day-trip to this small town, organized through a tourist agency from Bangkok, but you'd save a lot more money and have a lot more fun if you stayed overnight and organized your own transportation there. From the South Bus Station, you can get a bus for around $10 USD. It takes about 2 hrs to get ...

    When you travel to Thailand or Asian countries, you would probably expect to see ancient cultural art like temple, palace, and Buddhist-related place. Well, Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (bacc) would definitely surprise you, this art gallery/museum locates right at the heart of Bangkok. It's next to the MBK, Siam Discovery, Siam Square, and Siam Paragon, which I'm pretty sure ...

    Located in Kanchanaburi, Thailand, the River Kwai War Cemetery marks the graves of the allied troops that died during the building of the Bridge over the River Kwai during World War II. A beautiful memorial for those who lost their lives in this part of the Pacific Theatre of WWII.
