10 Top Tourist Attractions in Bangkok - Explore the most sought-after attractions of Bangkok

Bangkok is undoubtedly one of the most famous tourist destinations across the globe and when you look at the list of attractions in the city you understand why it is so popular.

1

Grand Palace

It goes unsaid that the Grand Palace is the most popular tourist attraction in Bangkok. Built in the year 1782 this royal palace structure puts most modern-day creations to shame with its attention to detail and precision.

2

Wat Pho

There are so many temples that you can visit in Bangkok and this is a great adventure if you are travelling as a group. Bangkok is a family-friendly city with restaurants that cater to kids and you can also select a family room hotel. Bangkok also has guided tours of the temples where children can learn a variety of things about history, culture and heritage of Thailand. However, if you are selecting one temple to visit make sure it is the Wat Pho as it is close to the grand palace and stunning creation.

3

Wat Arun

Wat Arun has a rich history and you are able to take a guided tour to learn about the details of the temple. If you get to the top of the prang around sunset you will be treated to a breathtaking view of the sun dipping into the Chao Praya River

4

Wat Traimit

Wat Traimit which is also known as the Temple of the Golden Buddha is an important Buddhist religious location, but due to the stunning creation of the sculpture of Lord Buddha that is kept inside, there are many tourists who come to see the temple at least once when they visit Bangkok.

5

Wat Suthat

Wat Suthat which is located in the vicinity of the Great Swing is the oldest and the most stunning Buddhist Temple in Bangkok. This is a must-visit location especially due to the stunning art, architecture, and detail in the construction.

6

Giant Swing

The Giant Swing which used to be a functional piece of architecture used in Hindu religious ceremonies annually is not reduced to a decorative attraction after it was hit by lightning and got damaged.

7

National Museum and Wang Na Palace

If you love history you are bound to find this trip exciting and there are guided tours for those who would like to educate themselves about the details. Pathumwan Princess Hotel and many other hotels in Bangkok are not located too far from the National Museum which makes it convenient for those who are staying in the vicinity.

8

Chatuchak Market

If you love handmade local products then the Chatuchak Market is the best option you will come across in Bangkok. There are so many vendors selling products that are sourced and made in Thailand.

9

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

It is a must to visit the floating market if you are visiting Bangkok. The adventure is quite expensive but it is unlike any other excursion you will opt for. More than purchasing anything from the floating market it is the ambience, the colours and the experience itself that makes it a unique adventure.

10

Terminal 21

Don't judge the location by its name as it does sound like a boring airport terminal but what you find inside the shopping mall is the complete opposite of boring. There are so many international and local clothing stores and you can also find some unique decorations that uplift the mood of the mall.
