10 Things To Do In Bangkok Thailand

Wat Arun

“Wat Arun Ratchawararam Ratchaworamahaviharn”, as the temple is called paket tour bangkok by its full name, is named after the Hindu deity Aruna, the god of the dawn. Therefore, the temple also bears the nickname Temple of the Dawn. Even though the most beautiful to look at is the temple at sunset and at night when hundreds of lights let the Wat Arun shine golden. To visit the temple you need to pay an entrance fee of 50 baht per person and of course pay attention to your clothes, because knees and shoulders should be covered out of respect. Otherwise you may quickly be denied the entry.

Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaeo

“Wat Phra Sri Rattana Satsadaram”, as the Wat Phra Kaeo is called with its real name, is the temple of the Emerald Buddha, which is now situated in the ancient Grand Palace. Since the King is greatly admired in Thailand, actually every Thai visits here at least once in his life. I would even claim that the Grand Palace with the Wat Phra Kaeo is THE most important attraction of Bangkok. The interior of the temple is very impressive with its golden Chedi, statues and the chapel of the Emerald Buddha (Phra Ubosot). It is not easy to describe the temple and I think everyone should have seen it at least once. More information about the temple you can find here Wikipedia.

Wat Pho and the Reclining Buddha

In the center of Bangkok’s old town is the Wat Pho temple, not far from the Grand Palace. He is still called Wat Pho, but its official name nowadays is “Wat Phra Chettuphon Wimonmangkhlaram Ratchaworamahawihan”. The whole temple complex with garden, Chedis and Prangs is well worth seeing, but the highlight is definitely the Reclining Buddha statue. The 45 meter statue is a very popular photo theme.

Shopping in the Chatuchak Market

The Chatuchak weekend market is one of the largest markets in the world and you can find a bargain or two – or even buy your complete equipment here. There are over 10,000 stalls from clothes to souvenirs to delicious Thai cuisine; the market offers everything. Since it is so huge, it usually takes almost a whole day for the visit. For more information you are welcome to read our article on the chatuchak since this goes beyond the scope.
