Bustling Bangkok can overwhelm, and frequently it seems steeped in western culture and consumerism. So this beautiful temple complex offers a true respite -- a serene and peaceful place to escape the chaos. It's not rated high on tourist "must see" sites, which is a...More

Classic Thai buddhist temple with amazing bright and flickering decorations. What impressed me in this exact temple is that it's placed among glass skyscrapers which makes it a bridge from past to the future. Also it is not overcrowded and you can contemplate this silent...More

Beautiful royal temple in the middle of Bangkok. Don’t let its name confuse you, it’s in the Bang Rai district and not close to Hua Lamphong Station!

A large Watthat has some diverse structures, small temples, simple and ornate buildings. It is in a very busy area with a good street scene outside. Worth a visit if passing.

Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers
on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop

Short sleeves are no problem. I can't remember policy on shorts; however, if there is an issue, there is always a place next to the entrance that supplies ample cover free of charge.
