The Grand Palace
If you plan to visit only one historical tourist attraction in Bangkok, this should be the one! The Grand Palace is the former residence of the King of Thailand, which still houses the Emerald Buddha, one of the most revered Thai Buddha statues, entirely covered with diamonds and precious stones.
The Wat Pho
A few steps from the Grand Palace, discover Wat Pho, a 16th century temple where a majestic buddha statue, covered in gold leaf is the centerpiece! After wandering around the marvelous temple, nothing beats a soothing Thai massage to end your day!
Chinatown: a colorful and exotic area
Do not miss to visit this food and shopping paradise! Adventurous foodies can try some of the most mouth-watering dishes such as Tom Yum pork noodles, curry rice and sweeten their mouth with a crusty bun! For shopping lovers, the streets of Chinatown are full of shops! You will surely not come back home empty-handed!
It looks like a little Venice! Damnoen Saduak is one of the most popular floating markets in Thailand! The comings and goings of colourful boats is a wonderful sight! Many Thai people and foreign tourists travel there every day to shop and eat, the same way as a century ago!
