Recommended attractions in Bangkok
The Temple of the Reclining BuddhaWat Pho, or Wat Phra Chetuphon, is located behind the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and a MUST-do for any first-time visitor in Thailand or in Bangkok. It’s one of the largest temple complexes in the city and famed for its giant reclining Buddha its covered in gold leaf and its measures 46 metres long.It’s an easy ten minute walk from the Grand Palace, and we recommend coming to Wat Pho second, because even though the golden Buddha here is just as popular many people don’t take the time to wander around the rest of the complex so the experience tends to be far more relaxing. Wat Pho is often considered the leading school of massage in Thailand, so you really are in good hands here. Since December 2012, entrance to the temple costs 100 baht and you can visit any time between 08:00 and 17:00.This is also a great place to get a traditional Thai massage.

There are countless floating markets throughout the country. The colorfully clad merchants at these lively markets paddle along congested canals in sturdy canoes laden with vegetables and fresh fruit to sell to shoppers on the banks. There is lots of activity and chatter– bargaining is common – that’s all part of the fun — but don’t expect to get the price down more than a few baht.
The most famous of the floating markets is Damnoen Saduak, about 100 kilometers southwest of Bangkok. This buzzing market is at its best in the early morning before the crowds arrive and the heat of the day builds up. Our tour also includes a visit to Nakorn Pathom, Phra Pathom Chedi, supposedly the largest pagoda in Southeast Asia.
Mansion seven is a shopping centre themed around a horror/Halloween idea. The entire place is done up and decorated giving off a spooky vibe from the shop fronts to the walk ways and even the outside of the building. If you like spooky and dark stuff, thads the place to be .

Probably the most visited and remembered landmark of Thailand, The Grand Palace in Bangkok is where every visitor must pay a visit at least once in their lifetime. The construction of the Grand Palace began in 1782 during the reign of King Rama I, the founder of Chakri Dynasty, to become a royal residence, and it has been the utmost architectural symbol of Thailand ever since. The Grand Palace served as a significant royal residence until 1925 and is now used for ceremonial purposes only.
The Grand Palace is divided into three main zones:Home to royal offices The Outer Court, public buildings and the Temple of Emerald Buddha; the Middle Court, which is where the most important residential and state buildings are; and the Inner Court, which is exclusively reserved for the king, his queen and his consorts.
