07 Top Tourist Attractions in Bangkok – The city with something for every traveller!

Bangkok brings to mind everything that a tourist destination should- a rich and elaborate culture, magnificent tourist attractions, a vibrant nightlife and a superb shopping experience! Since Bangkok comes with one too many of each, here is how you can choose your top 7 tourist attractions to visit!

1

Wat Suthat

The Wat Suthat is one of the ten first grade royal temples that are located in Bangkok and is a must see for reasons such as its size and sheer magnificence. Its embellished ordination hall is the largest in the country and to be quite frank, we are not even denying it! In its lower base are twenty-eight Chinese pagodas complete with intricate carvings and decorations that are the perfect testament for the incredible Thai craftsmanship. The insides are just as beautiful; with terrific murals depicting the life of Lord Buddha. Perhaps the most impressive of all is an eight-metre high bronze image of Buddha - the Phra Sri Sakyamuni- which is an important historical as well as religious artifact.

2

Lumpinee Boxing Stadium

If you are looking to have a different kind of a fun night out, we cannot think of a better fit than to attend one of Bangkok's famous Muay Thai fights amidst its intoxicating atmosphere. Organized and run by the Royal Thai Army, the Lumpinee Boxing stadium holds the contest every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday night. Considering how prestigious winning one of these fights is said to be, they are usually fiercely contested. What makes the game a tad bit more exciting is how sometimes passionate fans have money riding on these games as Lumpinee permits gambling on games!

Terminal 21

It is the most unusual kind of a street market that you are ever bound to come across in your life! To begin with, it is no ordinary 'street' market out in the open- it a fully pledged building with a zillion different floors! What makes this place truly unique is how each of these floors represents a different market street from around the world. So, the chances of you feeling like in Rome one minute and Tokyo the next is highly likely. This shopping plaza is extremely well done and comes complete with a bunch of restaurants as well as a cinema! Shopping here makes for some truly wonderful memories to lockdown on your visit to Bangkok.

Siam Paragon

This capacious place is one of the largest shopping malls in the whole of Thailand and comes with a plethora of things for people to see and do apart from just shopping to their heart's content. In addition to the endless collection of shops and eateries that make up the complex, there is also an aquarium, an art gallery as well as an opera concert hall that hosts some remarkable performances as well. Should your sole intention of visiting Bangkok be to go crazy shopping, you'd be best served if you find a hotel near Bangkok Sathorn considering its proximity to spaces such as Siam Paragon.

Dusit Palace

This Royal Residence was constructed during the period between 1897 and 1901 for King Rama v and adorns the elegant European architectural design. The most prominent building in this compound is the Vimanmek Mansion that is built out of golden teak wood. Renowned as the world's largest wooden mansion, it contains 31 exhibition rooms as well as a throne room, bathrooms and multiple bedrooms.

Chatuchak Weekend Market

It is quite impossible for anyone to go wrong with their choice of visiting the Chatuchak Weekend market- ever! It is the largest of its kind in the whole of Thailand, and according to some, even across the world! With a staggering count of over 8000 stalls selling everything from antiques to clothing and furniture, the market is said to draw in more than 200,000 people on a regular weekend!

Grand Palace

Constructed somewhere around the year 1782, this served as the temporary residence of the Kings of Thailand during the period when the capital of Siam was moved from Thonburi to Bangkok. Today the palace is a major Bangkok tourist attraction and is located within a hoot's distance from renowned hospitality providers such as Chatrium Residence Sathon Bangkok.
