Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    A must go place whoever wants to catch a bird's eye view of the beautiful golden sunset lighting up the skyscrapers of Bangkok!! In addition to that, the mesmerizing beauty of the sparkling and shimmering city lights after the sun goes down, with a 360° view of the entire city, will definitely make you speechless!! I have seen a similar view from Empire State Building in NYC, and believe me this is no less than that!! Please visit during 6:00-7:00 pm! You will impressed!

    This Temple was built on the orders of King Rama III in honour of his granddaughter, the laterQueen Sommanat Wattanawadi. In addition to being a temple, the complex also has a working monastery and halls for monks. The main temple has a square plan with the most distinctive design being the 37 spires referencing the same number of Bodhipakkhiya Dharma of Buddhism. The principal image is Phra Phuttha Chuthamnarasop depicting the Buddha in meditation, both hands cupped together above his crossed feet.

    Visitors can climb to the top floors where there's stunning views of Bangkok and a shrine containing relics of the Buddha.

    Last year, I visited Khlong Bang Luang with my friends. It was an easy trip and filled with good memories for all of us. It was quite convenient to travel, so we hopped on the MRT to Bang Phai station. However, since the Artist House is located in the middle of the village, we walked around 10 minutes more to get there. This part can be confusing for a first-time visitor. If you don’t feel like walking, the other way is by motorcycle taxi at the entrance to the side street. And if I remember correctly, it would cost around 15 baht. (I recommend this way better if you are a newcomer.)

    When we arrived, it was a little bit smaller than we expected. There were several shops open for tourists, but not all of them were on weekdays. We were there early that morning. So we had no problem with overcrowding, unlike on weekends. There are several activities for us to do. For example, feeding the fish, painting on a canvas, learning how to make gel candles, and various handcrafts. If you are interested in artistry, you can buy many beautiful souvenirs from this place. We decided to spend our morning and afternoon painting some pictures and beading bracelets at the artist house while admiring the view of the canal with the long-tail boats passing by.

    Overall, the experience at this place was pleasant nonetheless. If you are looking for some artistic gifts alongside a peaceful canal, then Khlong Bang Luang Artist House might be a great choice for you!

    This site is commonly known as Wat Prayoon, a hidden gem that might not draw as many visitors but is culturally rich. I am particularly drawn to its unique architecture and tranquil ambiance. Notably, the large white stupa, surrounded by a cloister with Chinese-style structures, is a standout feature.
    Though it is free of admission, you can walk around and inside the stupa. I found artifacts displayed inside interesting.
    The temple started construction in 1828 and completed construction in 1855. Its stupa was destroyed by thunderbolt later and eventually got fully repaired.
    Before reaching the stupa, a small gallery offers pictures and information, providing insights into the site's history.
    While this site is not as popular as others in Bangkok, I definitely recommend visiting here. Since I was the only visitor that day, I found this site quiet and beautiful. It gives me adequate time to calm myself down and being able to appreciate everything it offers.
    Just plan it into one of the city walk stops and you will be amazed once you get there. The authenticity, historical significance, and the sense of calm it provides compared to more crowded tourist spots would make your stop at this site worthy.

    A couple of reviews have said it isn't clear why the model is here. As if historic Thai Kings should be expected to justify themselves to a modern audience...

    Some of the model shows signs of wear, which I've no doubt is to be expected after years of being rained on - so I wonder how much of the detail of the model Is original....?

    Our hotel was on this busy road and it is extremely entertaining. It runs parallel to the river so there’s all the benefits that that brings.

    The road itself is extremely busy so take care crossing. It is lined with shops of all types, bars and restaurants.

    There are also loads of food courts which serve delicious street food at very reasonable prices. We really enjoyed this area of Bangkok.

    I used to live near RCA Area, so every weekend I normally hang out around that area. We normally start the night with light drinking in Paul Panich, and as time goes by go to the clubs like Route 66 or Onyx.

    We made a trip here together with visiting the nearby Wat Suthat on a Sunday morning. Sweating under the hot weather it took us about 20 mins from The Golden Mount to here. One can see a glimpse of the bright red structure while walking along the roads/alleys leading to the City Hall square! The Giant Swing (Sao Ching Cha) was originally erected in 1784 as part of the Brahmin compound of shrines as a religious structure. The poles were erected in 1919 by the Louis T Leonowens Company and subsequently the rickety timbers were replaced by the structure presently. Standing at over 69ft (21 meters) tall, there was a few visitors beside us, took some nice photos and its surrounding. A brief 20 mins stay should suffice.
    WE proceed to Chinatown from here which is a station away. .

    I stayed at Hotel Muse Langsuan, and from there I walked on the Ratchaprasong Skywalk, the most convenient way to reach Paragon and Central World. Sunday evening was very quiet, and at Central World they was a motorbike festival.

    I only came here as part of a tour. Really not worth a stop unless you want to see and learn about Thai funerals. They tend to do this in the evening apparently between 19:00 and 19:30 so come then if you are interested. I would definitely not come otherwise.

    Saw the roof of the temple from our hotel room at the Amari and visited the temple on the way to the Seven Eleven! Nice little temple and looks lovely when lit up at night.

    This is the former palace of King Rama the 6th that is now part of the army residence and hospital. It was built 99 years ago, about 1920. We ate lunch in the coffee shop and it is really a very nice room with a nice interior from the original period the palace was built. The wood in this room and the wood throughout the palace is really beautiful dark wood, probably teak; the architecture is wonderful if you appreciate good architecture. We took the guided tour which was only in Thai unfortunately. Out of about 30-40 people I was the only nonThai person on the tour so I don’t think many westerners know about this place, it’s really underrated as a tourist destination. The tour started at 1:30PM and lasted close to 4PM so you really get your moneys worth. The tour discussed King Rama VI, his queen, the architecture and the history of the place. Phyathai Palace was once as King Rama VI’s Bangkok palace, it was later transformed into a five-star hotel and it’s now the Royal Thai Army’s medical headquarters. The queen’s building used to be a hospital where surgeries took place at one point. There were some very interesting looking buildings, and lots of dark wood which I presume was teak. The palace was designed in the Romanesque style but there are gothic elements and some of the other buildings are in different styles. It was really very nice day and a completely unexpected good experience. If you wear shorts they’ll make you put on some long pants over them for the tour. I wish they’d sort of change this rule, there are no monks there. I’ll give it four stars, they need some English speaking guides on the tour and it would be nice if we didn’t have to wear long pants over shorts on these very hot days, after a 2 and a half hour tour I was soaked. They need to have air conditioning in the main buildings of the tour.
