162 Popular Attractions in Bangkok

The capital of Thailand, Bangkok is a thriving city with too much traffic and a friendly population of hard working people.

Top Attractions

The temples, locally known as Wat, are the first thing everyone wants to see in Bangkok. And there are temples, shrines and religious buildings everywhere. The big three would be Wat Arun – Temple of The Dawn, Wat Pho, the reclining Buddha and Wat Trai Mit, the Temple of the Golden Buddha. These are all in Old Bangkok area, easily accessed by river boats, as is the Emerald Buddha, Wat Phra Kaew.

Kids & Family

There are plenty of things to keep the kids entertained, but perhaps Snow Town seems unusual in the heat of Bangkok. If they get tired of the cold, take them to Bat Cat- The Batman Museum. Or explore the wonders of Nature at the Butterfly Gardens and Insectarium.

Shopping & Nightlife

There are street stalls and shopping centres all over Bangkok, but the best known tourist markets and nightlife is Khao San Road. Better quality shops can be found at Ploenchit, and Siam area, easily accessible by Skytrain. The Amarin Plaza has a lovely food court on the 4th floor and on the 3rd floor is a cultural heritage & craft market, seemingly undiscovered by the crowds yet.

The most popular shopping centers, where you can pretty much find everything, are MBK and Siam Paragon.

Day Tours

Favourite tours include the Floating Market, to the River Kwai on the Death Railway and the train trip to the Umbrella Market. The Umbrella market is not selling umbrellas, however, the stalls fold themselves up to let the train through the centre of the market several times a day.
