Best places to see in Thailand

Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha)
Landmarks
Serenity surrounds this spiritual building. Thousands pray to the Emerald Buddha at this temple inside the Grand Palace. The Buddha – carved of a single block of jade – is one of the most revered in Thailand. On your way in, study the walls: the gilded characters of the Ramakien – Thailand’s adaptation of the Hindu Ramayana) – tell a visual tale of their own.

Grand Palace
Landmarks
The Grand Palace is the beating heart of Thailand. The Royal Family’s ceremonial home is a vast complex of buildings with paths swathed in golden light. Admire bejewelled sword-bearing Guardian Statues, view stately outfits in the Pavilion of Regalia, or bow before the Emerald Buddha at Wat Phra Kaew. Cover up – tight clothes, bare shoulders, arms and legs are a no-no.
Accommodation near Grand Palace
Jungceylon Shopping Center
Shopping areas
Why shop at Jungceylon? The real question is why not – international and local brand clothing, restaurants, supermarkets, bowling alleys and cinemas that all vie for your attention here. This mall is a local favourite that covers almost quarter-of-a-million square-metres. Its centrepiece is a musical fountain with synchronised lights and sound that’s great for a quick snapshot.
Accommodation near Jungceylon Shopping Center
Chao Phraya River
Popular areas
Adventure lies just around the river-bend. Rolling Chao Phraya River is Bangkok’s arterial waterway and main thoroughfare for boat traffic. Soak up a host of city sights in one shot with a short cruise that runs you past the major sites. Visit the bars and restaurants of the five-star hotels that pepper the shoreline for deliriously sublime vistas, even more so at dusk.
Accommodation near Chao Phraya River
Wat Arun, Temple of the Dawn
Landmarks
Cool grey from a distance and a cavalcade of colour up close, Wat Arun’s fierce details leap at you from every direction. The main feature of this temple is its ‘prang’, a colossal tower covered with colourful porcelain that glistens in the sunlight. Scale the temple to admire the details up-close, or look at it from the east side of Chao Phraya River at sunset.
Accommodation near Wat Arun, Temple of the Dawn
Bangla Road
Popular areas
There’s risqué nightlife, and then there’s Bangla Road. This central strip leads from the beach to Jungceylon Shopping Centre. During the day, its shops and bars are geared towards a family-friendly expat clientele. But from 20:00 onwards, the entire vibe changes. Pink-lit bars fill with dancers and entertainers who specialise in adults-only entertainment.
