Take a walk through China Town to get to the Golden Buddha. The whole experience is well worth it. We used the Hop-on Hop-off river tour and then walked from the pier. It's a good 4km walk, so be prepared

most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
