  • As most of the major temples in Bangkok is a really nice building, with a structure of great beauty, the golden point more eye-catching, and unique roofs and decoration. To access the temple you have shoes you and cover the hombors and knees.

  • This is the Central Temple, near the residence of the King and you can visit her. At the entrance to the territory of the dress code, so the skirts and trousers need any longer. Entrance fee 500 baht, it is expensive by local standards and over 200 can take the audioguide.

  • Here is where our people, Thailand everyone should too. People can get into Thailand at Wat Phra Kaew, AO safety, door, door ornament and Sopha from 7.00 am that door is opposite the Ministry of defence welfare Sopha lol. 7.00-8.30 time interval is the time of peace at last.

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance.
