Bangkok Information and Travel Tips to Plan your Bangkok Vacation


Home to 9 million people, Thailand’s capital bursts with energy, color, and historical and modern landmarks. Straddling the Chao Phraya River, the city has grown from a small port in the 18th century to today’s fastpaced metropolis. At its heart is the boat-flled Chao Phraya and regal old city, crowned by the Grand Palace with its sacred Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Elsewhere, a myriad of experiences beckon, from gold-coated temples to ?oating markets, upscale malls, cosmopolitan restaurants, and steaming food markets.


Wat Pho

Wat Pho is the home of the world s largest reclining Buddha. The temple is known as the birthplace of traditional Thai massage.

Grand Palace

Close by to the Temple of Emerald Buddha is the Grand Palace, which serves as the symbol of the Thai royal family and is the most important archeological symbol in Thailand. This was the official residence of the king of Thailand up until the mid-20th century when King Bhumibol moved the residence to Chitralada Palace. Today, it is often the chosen location for state ceremonies. Built in 1877 by King Rama V, the Grand Palace compound housed the Borom Phiman Mansion and The Siwalai Garden, among many others. Visitors are required to dress in appropriate attire when entering the Grand Palace.


Ayutthaya is the ruins of the old city destroyed by the Burmese army. It is designated as an UNESCO World Heritage site, and has many temples of distinct Thai style.

Temple of the Emerald Buddha

The Temple of Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Kaeo or Wat Phra Si Rattana Satsadaram) is the most important and sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand. Built in 1782 at the founding of the city, the temple houses an emerald-colored Buddha statue, which in reality is made of jade and not emerald. The statue is placed high up in the temple and the interior of the temple is adorned with murals depicting stories of Buddhist traditions. There are many figures of religious importance throughout the compound. The temple s spiritual significance makes it the number one attraction in Bangkok, along with Wat Pho and Ayutthaya.

Gems Factory

With Thailand being the gems-cutting center of the world, a visit to the Gems Factory is most recommended. There are many gem markets in Bangkok and it is therefore advisable to shop at more well established and reputable stores to ensure quality of purchase.

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is another one of the great many attractions in Bangkok, Thailand. Streaming over a small canal are gondola-like boats guiding tourists through the experience of old traditions, local-life cultures, as well as commerce activities. Locals barter and trade merchandise on their long boats along the canal. Vying and competing for the attention of customers, boating retailers stop to offer many bargains. The trip to the floating market is an ideal itinerary to get a peek into local life.
