What to see in Bangkok

People say that Bangkok never sleeps and it is true ! Here is a small list of things to see in Bangkok with the places to visit absolutely like Wat Phra Kaew attached to the Grand Palais, their neighborWat Pho and its magnificent reclining Buddha and Wat Arun on the other bank of Chao Phraya river. i advice you to use the subway and Chao Praya Express boats to get there. And to discover another facet of Bangkok, I recommend you to go discover the klongs. On the weekends id possible when floating markets take place.

Must-visits in Bangkok

Wat Pho Bangkok

Wat Pho

วัดโพธิ์
My opinion :
Very pleasant in the late afternoon, just opposite to the Wat Phra Kaew, it is famous for its huge reclining Buddha.
Wat Arun Bangkok

Wat Arun

วัดอรุณ
My opinion :
or Temple of Dawn on the other side of the river in front of Wat Po. The crossing by tray boat is very cheap (3 bahts)
The klongs Bangkok

The klongs

คลอง
My opinion :
These small canals going through Bangkok take you rto a completly different setting : very quiet, rural, almost out of time. You really have the the impression of having left the city.
Wat Phra Kaew Bangkok

Wat Phra Kaew

วัดพระแก้ว
My opinion :
and its many buildings with gilding and refined decorations. No entry after 15:30 is possible. Try schedule the visit in the morning to be sure.
Great Palace Bangkok

Great Palace

พระบรมมหาราชวัง
My opinion :
royal residence which is now used only for ceremonies. It is right next to Wat Phra Keo
Klong Lat Mayom Floating Market Bangkok

Klong Lat Mayom Floating Market

ตลาดน้ำคลองลัดมะยม
My opinion :
This small floating market on the immediate outskirts of Bangkok is open on weekends only and is a nice place to visit to discover the life on the canals of the Thai capital city. Collective or private boat tours leave. I advise you to combine your visit with a tour on the klongs (canals).
