Grand Palace Phra Borom Maha Ratchawang Bangkok Thailand - Krung Thep Maha Nakhon

This is a beautiful palace. The architecture is spectacular.The Museum of the Emerald Buddha Temple, the Collection of coins and the pavillion/museum displaying arms are interesting. The colours and the detailing in the structures, the beautiful windows and the armed guards are worth one's attention.

Our first stop was The Grand Palace, Bangkok’s massive and most visited Temple Complex, a visual onslaught of colour, a kaleidoscope of intricate patterns and glittering spires. The Palace Complex is huge; within it are many halls and buildings including government offices, the colourful and intricate Thai-style Pavilions contrasting with the more European Facade of the Chakri Maha Prasath Buildings, where the Central Throne Hall is. The Grand Palace served as the official residence of the King and his royal court from 1782 right until 1925; and even though the present Monarch does not live here anymore, it continues to be used for official events.

Bangkok Thailand - Krung Thep Maha Nakhon

Bangkok was a great experience. The temples are stunning, as is the culture of the country.I`ve stayed in a hostel at the famous Khao San Rd, a really crowded street, full of backpackers from all around the world. At night the place turns into a party place, where all the stores put on music and you can buy buckets of drinks everywhere. Literally buckets.

There is much more to Bangkok than nightlife and shopping. The Ayuthaya Historical remains is a must see for anyone interested in history. The 'Head of Buddha' is a stunner as to how nature conspires to protect God. The Siam Niramit show leaves you in awe. 'Spectacular' is such understatement. The Jim Thompson house is a treat to visit!

38 Sukhumvit Road Bangkok Thailand - Krung Thep Maha Nakhon

Sukhumvit Soi 38 is a hidden gem. It is an alley of street food but take note that it only opens at night from about 7 pm onwards. I would recommend having their pad thai and mango sticky rice (these few stalls are located on your right as you enter the alley). And there is also a duck rice stall (which i thought was pretty yum) on your right if you walk further down the alley. There are actually alot of stalls for you choose from that i suggest if you are going in a group, to NOT each order a dish for yourself. Sharing several dishes in a group will give you more variety to try difference dishes :) Dining along the street with cars and motorcycles driving by is a rather authentic thai experience you will ever have.

Some of the BEST street eats can be found at Sukhumvit Soi 38 (Thong Lor BTS stop). Go hungry, and try as many things as you possibly can, then go back and eat some more.

Located in the centre of Bangkok it is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Bangkok. The scale of the buildings and the details within the buildings is breathtaking. Only 350b to gain entry and you can literally spend hours looking around! Also check out Wat Pho which is located just around the corner from the Grand Palace and is the MASSIVE lying down Buddha its 100b to get in but again its beautiful inside and you can look around the many rooms and temples once inside.

11 Sukhumvit Road Bangkok Thailand - Krung Thep Maha Nakhon

I love this place because this place never sleeps, If you are alone also you will not get bored. Sit in the sky bar and you will make friends easily. Soi 11 is really awesome. Spend the evenings here & you will love it. This indeed is the most happening place in Bangkok and my favourite street in the city. It’s a fantastic place to drink & meet new people. Also, you will find here many Indian Restaurants and Sky Bars.

Loftel 22 Hostel ถนน เจริญกรุง กรุงเทพมหานคร ประเทศไทย - Krung Thep Maha Nakhon

The quirkiest, coolest hostel I have stayed at. Located in the Riverside district, it is a 5 minute walk from Si Phraya ferry pier and about a ten minute walk from the MRT Hualamphong. The cafe is cute and has great coffee and sandwiches. The area around it is really cool, like it hasn't bothered to change with the times or modernise at all. All this at INR600 per night!

Chinatown Bangkok Thailand - Krung Thep Maha Nakhon

It is a haven to explore the vibrant street-side cuisine. The food is cheap and fresh. Chinatown is definitely not to be missed. We had bird’s nest soup, suckling pig, roasted duck, and grilled prawns. It is a perfect spot for the best bargains as there are many whole sellers here if you need to buy souvenirs. Visit after sundown.

Jim Thompson House ถนน พระราม 1 Bangkok Thailand - Krung Thep Maha Nakhon

Jim Thompson was an interesting man, or he is an interesting man - one doesn't know what happened of him after he went missing from the Cameron Highlands.The several houses put together are beautiful, and are beautifully restored. The artefacts inside are equally interesting - especially the Chinese blue pottery stools with a compartment for coal to be put it, to keep your seats warm in winter!

The Grand Palace Bangkok Thailand - Krung Thep Maha Nakhon

We went early in the morning (The Grand Palace opens at 8.30 am) as we were told that once the tourist buses start to roll in, the place gets annoyingly crowded. The Grand Palace, built in 1782, is a former residence of the king, the Royal court and the administrative seat of government. A large part of the complex is used for ceremonies and is off-limits to tourists. The well-crafted floors, ceiling and walls inspire respect for the craftsmen who worked on this majestic palace. The intricate designs and architecture took me by awe. The palace is ornate and even after so many years reflects a sense of supremacy. Travel Tip- Ladies make sure you cover your upper arms and legs completely. Men must wear long trousers and suitable a T-shirt.

Dusit Palace Bangkok Thailand - Krung Thep Maha Nakhon

Take a motorcycle taxi from the Grand Palace to reach this beautiful palace. This palace is more open and airy, and not as colorful. However, it is extremely beautiful, I was more impressed by this beautiful, well lit palace than I was by the Grand Palace(But that is just my humble opinion.)Take the Audio guide and educate yourself about all the grand installations and artwork as part of the museum.

Taling Chan Floating Market Taling Chan Thailand - Krung Thep Maha Nakhon

Next day, after breakfast we went to the charming floating market, famed for its hospitality. We enjoyed a great seafood lunch of huge prawns and blue crabs on the floor along with the locals and then rode the long-tail boat along the canal while shopping. The best part of the ride was tasting all kinds of sweets, fruits and snacks. It was not that crowded and hence enjoyable. This is a simple yet an irresistible way to spend your day. When we couldn't take the sun, we went to the open-air foot massage set under the trees.
