Bangkok is home to numerous shining temples, and Wat Arun, commonly known as the 'Temple of the Dawn', is one of the popular ones. This stunning temple is located roughly thirty minutes from Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel, a popularly known hotel in Siam, Bangkok. The temple is most stunning during the sunset; therefore, if you're looking to capture stunning images, during sunset is the time to do so! The name of the temple originated from Hindu God Aruna and holds a very special place amongst the locals in Thailand. The entry fee is 100 Baht per person and the temple is open from 8:30 am till 5:30 pm.

Trendy clothing stalls, souvenir shops, food stalls and much more, this destination is one you should not miss out on when in Thailand. In fact, Chatuchak is the largest market in Asia, therefore, finding your way through it can be a little confusing. Here, you can find various pieces of art, clothing, jewellery, accessories, and much more. On Sundays, the market is open all day from 9 am to 6 pm, with some stalls staying open till much later. The best time to go shopping is in the morning, when the market first opens, as many of the shopkeepers believe that the first sale of the day brings good luck! You can also put your bargaining skills to the test at the market.
