    I arrived to the Museum via a Grab and there was good direction as to what to do. I got into a tour straight away, no waiting.
    You do have to do the 45 min tour.
    Worth the trip, and can spend around 2 hrs there. Beautiful little place.

    A must go place whoever wants to catch a bird's eye view of the beautiful golden sunset lighting up the skyscrapers of Bangkok!! In addition to that, the mesmerizing beauty of the sparkling and shimmering city lights after the sun goes down, with a 360° view of the entire city, will definitely make you speechless!! I have seen a similar view from Empire State Building in NYC, and believe me this is no less than that!! Please visit during 6:00-7:00 pm! You will impressed!

    This is one of the landmark building in Silom area and I have seen this beautiful 64 floors skyscraper many times while roaming around in Silom area. I was staying at Novotel Bangkok Silom Road hotel and this giant building was visible from the window of my hotel room. Lebua is a reputed hotel located in this building and also there is the Sky bar located on the top floor where popular Hollywood movie Hangover 2 was shot.

    During our vacation in Bangkok we had visited the beautiful Grand Palace complex and the Upper Terrace is located within the complex. This is included in the 500 baht ticket price which includes the Wat Phra, Golden Stupa, Grand Palace, Queen Sirikit museum of textiles. The view from this place of the temple complex and the palace is mesmerizing and a paradise for all photography lovers.

    Found this place by accident using Google Map. A easy 20 min walk there from IconSiam, when near it the road is quiet and full of trees on both sides, like a small village but just minutes away from the busy and noisy main street. The entrance is behind the security guard office, a bit hidden. There is no charge to enter. The house is well maintained, with 2 floors, you can still see some colourful murals on some of the walls. This place is late 19th century, very elegantly built. You will enjoy more if you are interested in Chinese history in Thailand. There are shops and eateries on-site but we didn't try any. You can walk towards the River front to look at the view, next door in the same compound is the temple for the Goddess Of The Sea but it is not opened. Can easily spend 30-40 minutes there and walked around the neighbourhood afterwards.

    This pretty fort was right next to our hotel so we used to go past it all the time. It’s incredible that there is such history right in the city and it is definitely worth finding if you are out exploring.

    Unfortunately, due to the current times, access was restricted but you can still get some great photographs from the outside.

    Such a beautiful golden temple within the Grand Temple. If you look up close the dome is formed through millions of tiny gold tiles. It looked amazing in the February sunshine!

    This is the former palace of King Rama the 6th that is now part of the army residence and hospital. It was built 99 years ago, about 1920. We ate lunch in the coffee shop and it is really a very nice room with a nice interior from the original period the palace was built. The wood in this room and the wood throughout the palace is really beautiful dark wood, probably teak; the architecture is wonderful if you appreciate good architecture. We took the guided tour which was only in Thai unfortunately. Out of about 30-40 people I was the only nonThai person on the tour so I don’t think many westerners know about this place, it’s really underrated as a tourist destination. The tour started at 1:30PM and lasted close to 4PM so you really get your moneys worth. The tour discussed King Rama VI, his queen, the architecture and the history of the place. Phyathai Palace was once as King Rama VI’s Bangkok palace, it was later transformed into a five-star hotel and it’s now the Royal Thai Army’s medical headquarters. The queen’s building used to be a hospital where surgeries took place at one point. There were some very interesting looking buildings, and lots of dark wood which I presume was teak. The palace was designed in the Romanesque style but there are gothic elements and some of the other buildings are in different styles. It was really very nice day and a completely unexpected good experience. If you wear shorts they’ll make you put on some long pants over them for the tour. I wish they’d sort of change this rule, there are no monks there. I’ll give it four stars, they need some English speaking guides on the tour and it would be nice if we didn’t have to wear long pants over shorts on these very hot days, after a 2 and a half hour tour I was soaked. They need to have air conditioning in the main buildings of the tour.

    What a great place! This temple fetishizes Siamese trade with China via junks - the merchant vessels before the advent of coal-burning steamships. Windows in the ordination hall which look like portholes. Boundary-marker stones housed in white cylinders that evoke lighthouses. A stone ship which doubles as a little cemetery. And murals in the main temple which feature some of the gayest scenes I've ever laid eyes on in a Buddhist house of worship.
    The white-painted walls of the buildings almost glow in the right kind of light. The angles and ovals and tiers, and the fact that this temple is dedicated not just to the creed but to navigation on the high seas and on the Chao Phraya two centuries and so ago -- lovely and fascinating.

    While walking to Wat Pho I happen to come across Wat Ratchabopit Sathit Mahasimaram. Some parts of the place is under renovation but the garden area is really well taken care of. But it's a peaceful place to visit.

    I'm distraught to see many glorious mature trees being felled inside the palace.I always cherished the views of the Palace from outside,a sense of a wonderful nature oasis,a lovely area for people to stroll.Does anybody know why they are being felled?

    This old wooden pavillion is situated in the Suan Pakkad palace, its used to be the scripture hall in the Banklin temple in Ayutthaya, on those day there were two building located on the Chaopraya bank, the first one was a scripture keeping hall and the another was a pavilion hall, but both of them were get older and get ruined, so the villagers reconstructed two buildings and compounded the wooden component of them to be the new one building. The origin of wooden pavilion can be dated in Ayutthaya period or around 17 th century.
    The golden panel inside the hall is depicted the story of Lord Buddha life, really attractive, historical feeling and charming, don’t miss, it’s worth your time.
