    An iconic building that has beautified the Bangkok skyline. From the highest point in Bangkok, you can see all around. It is recommended to visit in the early evening and enjoy both day and night.

    Order a cocktail from the Sky Lounge bar and enjoy it in style!

    I quite appreciated taking a walk around the park in the late afternoon. Picturesque, and some interesting wildlife.

    It seems pretty active and lots going on. ALL those out walking or jogging for exercise are moving in the same direction. Unsure if this is a written or unwritten rule? Interesting behaviour! There was an interesting class going on when I finished - Zumbw outside or some such.

    The MRT is the perfect way to travel around Bangkok. You can buy a token for your journey at the entrance to each metro station, and they are very inexpensive. The trains are clean and spacious for underground trains.

    There is even data!

    I have fear of heights so I was a bit concerned, but it was actually fun. Regular ticket was expensive at 900 baht, but 60+ discounted rate is only 250.

    During my vacation in Bangkok, I was staying in Silom area and I had visited this beautiful temple complex dedicated to Lord Buddha. At the entrance there are vendors selling flowers and incense sticks. One has to climb up marble steps to reach the main temple which has a beautiful golden color Buddha in sitting posture with beautiful decor using chandeliers and the colorful paintings on the walls depicting stories from the life of Lord Buddha are absolutely mesmerizing. Also liked the beautiful architecture of the temple showcasing intricate art work in golden color. Entrance ticket of 40 baht is there for foreign national.

    I haven’t been for a few months, but just thought I’d detail my last visit. For locals, it’s really not a great place. But for locals just passing through it might be more fun. Quite seedy and lots of knock off merchandise. It’s busy and bustling and not great value for money in local terms.

    It's my favourite foodcourt in Bangkok. I guess only seasoned Bangkok dwellers and expats know about it because it's inside the building, so on your way there it's easy to get distracted by the many pop-up restaurants located outside that open all around the building starting at 4 p.m. Once you are inside, you walk along the many food stalls, and I always find it hard to choose because I basically want to try everything. I always end up ordering 2 or even 3 dishes. Prices are very affordable: expect to pay around 50 baht for a dish.

    Assumption Cathedral is located in Bang Rak District, Bangkok, Thailand. It is a Roman Catholic church which was constructed from the request of French missionaries and completed in 1821. The cathedral was reconstructed many times. For example, during the World War II in 1942, the church was seriously damaged by the bomb, so it was restored and partly refurbished in 1980s and 1990s. Stained glass window are used in the cathedral today. The cathedral was visited by 2 Popes, including Pope John Paul II in May 1984 and Pope Francis in November 2019.

    I visited the Cathedral during the Holy Week. The cathedral was a very beautiful architecture. There are stained glass windows around the cathedral which told us the stories from the Bible both old testament and new testament. On those days, I thought the choir sang so sweetly and peacefully while I was attending the masses. I really recommend you visit this Cathedral. It is opened every day for sightseeing, or you can attend the mass which is held on Saturday 5 p.m., and Sunday 7 a.m., 08.30 a.m., 10.00 a.m. (English Mass), and 5.00 p.m.

    ...when I came here. My laptop is down (and out) so it's been taking me some time to get to a few reviews I've been meaning to write. This place was one of those - actually, especially one of those. Usually, if I don't write one within a day or two of the experience, I let it pass and move on to something else. For some reason, I've been wanting to say a few things about this interestingly put together, small museum themed on the famous/infamous/notorious - there are too many adjectives coming to mind right now - Patpong area. A visit to this somewhat quaint, somewhat uncurated (I believe) museum is certainly a unique diversion from the hedonistic nightlife/entertainment the area mostly offers and that is well documented at this museum. What is also well documented here is the American War in Vietnam, particularly the bombing of Laos which seems to occupy a good part of the content of the displays and video that was shown. I would say that it was a bit of overkill with that focus. While certainly interesting and I definitely learned some things - Tony Poe for example - that I didn't know before, I guess I felt some discomfort that there is so much about the war put out. I realize the GI's - which evidently included a group of shady American government characters - came to Patpong for R&R and whatnot and these people certainly flavoured the area, but maybe the space and time would be better spent on more about say the girls (and the boys, and the ladyboys) who "enrich" the Patpong experience for whomever is visiting. I wanted hear about their "hunger" for whatever brought them here to do this work they do. You know something, I don't why felt discomfort about all the war stuff - probably just some abnormal insecurity about my American identity inherent in me. Don't ask; I don't even know what I mean. So, the museum did also cover the history of the Chinese family who started it all in Patpong as well as some things about the clubs and "entertainers" I was talking about before. There was an American gentleman with an off-beat sense of humor who served as our guide. I remember coming to like him way better as the tour progressed than I did when it started out when I asked him if he was the owner of the place. He replied something like he only takes out the trash here. I believe he has more significance to the museum than that. I deeply respect and find intense dignity in those who do take out the/our/my trash and keep things clean for those of us who are blessed and not forced by life's circumstances to do this work. Negative comments even in jest about such work has always put me off. That being said, I could see during the tour he is a good guy though. And also for some reason, I got the impression he helps out people here in Thailand. Well then again, if you know me, I'm more times than not wrong about people so... So there was also an enchanting woman here with the unforgetable, somewhat seductive name of Apple who was kind enough to take care of a little scrape on my arm that was slightly bleeding. Yeah, I was distracted a little from the museum's content by her. Yeah. I think good people run this museum, and they are on some kind of journey themselves in setting-up, building, curating, maintaining (whatever) this I would say "must-see" attraction in Bangkok. Man, did it take me a long time to write this review. I'm doing it on a tablet using a separate keyboard and mouse. I'm so glued to using the Windows platform and find writing more tedious using Chrome or Android or whatever this thing I'm on is. And I'm sickened with the thought of going out and having to buy a new laptop. The older I get, the less though I want to put into things, especially shopping. I complicate everything mundane.

    If you are looking to experience water everywhere, loud music and loads of festivities for free then head over to Silom and walk down the street. You can veer off into side streets to find quieter spaces and loads of restaurants and bars celebrating. Won't go again, but worth seeing it.

    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.

    Silom night market can be reached by a tuktuk, taxi or BTS train (metro) Saladaeng.
    This nightmarket I found a little bit expensive, compared to the nightmarket in Pratunam, which is close to Bayoke Tower. At the Silom market you will find bags, fake watches, clothing etc. etc. Thai arts, Household things, and around this all: gaybars, shows and the so called by Thai TukTuk drivers a “Ping Pong” show. This area is also known as PATPONG. PATPONG is the red light district in Bangkok. Years ago it was only one street. NOW Patpong becomes, I think, the largest red light area in Bangkok. If you wanted to see the actual Sodom and Gomorrah, than silom market and around is the place to visit.
