Bangkok, Thailand is peppered with many attractions, sites, and palaces of significance. Spare your time to visit some of the best religious, entertainment and artistic attractions when in Bangkok.
The Grand Palace
The Grand Palace is one of the most iconic tourist destinations in Bangkok. Since the 18th century, the Grand Palace, also known as Phra Borom Maha Ratcha Wang, has been the official home and residence of the Kings of Siam. The Palace contains a number of different architectural components such as the Outer Court, the Middle Court, the Inner Court, the Defensive walls, and of course, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha.
The Temple of the Dawn
You should not miss the spellbinding sight of this amazing religious complex, especially when travelling along the Chao Phraya River. It is also known as Wat Arun Ratchawararam Ratchawaramahawihan. It derives its name from the first light of the dawn which touches the surface of the temple giving it an iridescent quality.
Asiatique The Riverfront
Asiatique The Riverfront is located on the banks of the Chao Phraya River and tourists who choose to visit the Grand Palace by ferry will see this on their journey. It’s a shopping complex which also hosts an outdoor night market, albeit far more upscale when compared to the traditional night markets in Bangkok. For those who are staying at an Ekamai condo the likes of Somerset Ekamai Bangkok, this attraction is 23 minutes away.
Wat Pho is a popular royal temple and is one of the earliest to receive this accolade. Its defining feature is the large reclining Buddha statue which is 46 metres in length. Due to the temple’s 1,360 marble inscriptions, Wat Pho is called ‘the nation’s first public university’.
