- Grand palace
This beautiful complex has been the home to the country’s kings since 1782. Although currently it isn’t the official residence of the King, it is open to tourists to witness its splendid architecture and still hosts royal ceremonies and events. Included in the complex is the Wat Phra Kaew which features a Buddha statue carved completely out of one emerald block. This Buddha statue is regarded highly in the country and hence a strict dress code applies. If you are not appropriately dressed, there is booth at the main entrance to provide you with clothes to cover up at a very low deposit. Arriving by boat is the best way as you could enjoy a great view on the way.
- Khao San Road
For those of you who love street life, this is the best place. The Khao San Road features if you cannot afford a luxury hostel Bangkok to stay in, head down here to find a cheap but good room.

The little shops and bars will pound with music and entertainment. You could devour delicious Thai food and drinks. The street is a backpacker’s paradise as you could get anything and everything from its markets for very low prices, from pirated CDs to handicrafts etc. Check out more here https://chaohostel.com/nearby-attraction/.
- Lumpini Park
If you’ve had a long day sightseeing and shopping, head outside to the Lumpini Park, situated in the heart of the city. This serene park is the epitome of greenery and relaxation so rather than sitting in your hostel private room, head down here. You can rent boats and paddle around the lake, grab a bite from the numerous stalls and simply enjoy some quiet time with your family or even alone. Grab a bench or picnic spot of your liking and observe the people, birds and nature.
- Chao Phraya River
There could be nothing better than calming dinner cruise along the river, watching the beautiful sights such as the golden Wat Arun temple pass by. The cruise would offer you good food, music, dance and entertainment. The most surprising element will be when a Thai lady sings songs from different countries and languages. It would be great fun.
