Neighborhood: Chatuchak
Every weekend, thousands of tourists make their way up to this Northern Bangkok suburb to get lost in an enormous maze of shops at the Chatuchak Weekend Market. Home to almost 10,000 vendors, you’ll find everything from vintage sneakers to comic books and Thai handicrafts being sold here. You name it, Chatuchack probably sells it. The market is a great place to pick up souvenirs, but be sure to bargain for a good price. After a day of shopping and strolling around, the lush green lanes of Chatuchak Park are a welcome relief.

Wat Borom
Aug 2016 • Family
Wat Boromniwas or Wat Borom is located near the Bo Bae market. Built by King Rama IV in 1834 while he was still a monk, it was originally intended to be a forest temple. It was renovated and renamed by King Rama V. Phra Buddha Tossapolayan, an amazing Sukhothai style statue is the main Buddha image. There are unusual murals in the main hall depicting scenes of landscapes and people drawn in the Western style. Also of interest is the monks residence and the entrance arch, which are in the European style, the work of craftsmen in the reign of King Rama V.

A hidden treasure in Bangkok
Jan 2016
This small royal temple has been established hundreds years ago since the beginning of Bangkok. But now surrounded with buildings and shop houses, so it is hidden and not ewasy to find. Only through a small lane one can reach this temple. In the main hall (Ubosot), you can see fabulous mural painting dated back from King Rama V period.
