Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

    My second visit to Wat Pak Nam Phasi Charoen, an amazing temple. In July 2023 there were less tourist around but even this time on a Sunday it was not too crowded. I took the MRT to Bang Phai station, Exit 1, and then down the stairs or with the elevator, it takes about 15 minutes to reach the pedestrian bridge over the canal, and then to the grounds of the temple. There is the Meili Café near to the bridge, good espresso and brownies.
    There is so much to see at this temple, of course the giant Buddha statue is the main object for pictures. From the pagoda which is behind the Buddha pictures of the area can be taken. In the pagoda there are several levels to climb up the stairs, definitely worthwhile to do.
    Several foreign women walked around with very tight shorts and bustier, unfortunately the Thais are too shy to tell them that wearing such dress is very disrespectful.

    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.

    Pretty interesting, but also very graphic, so be prepared.
    Put on your CSI cap.

    Several weeks after I viewed it, my wife told me a story.
    Apparently her mother was pregnant and riding a motorscooter near by, and got in an accident. Lost the baby, and it ended up in that museum.
    Glad she told me afterwards.

    Suan Pakkad or cabbage garden used to be the house of the grandson of King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) but is now a museum. There are 8 rooms connected into a spacious house. In the rooms many artefacts from different countries and periods, not only Thai. Pottery, jewellery, carvings, musical instruments etc. Not a typical tourist place, so quiet. If you want to enjoy something different I could recommend to spend around 2 hours here. Photography inside is not allowed and entrance fee is 100 baht.

    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!

    Although I used to live in Bangkok, I'd never been to Khlong Toei Market, but I needed to buy a sticky rice steamer basket for my son, so I went. It is a great market that has all basic food items and housewares. Its a great place to go to see a working market. It was easy to get to from the MRT station.

    A nice kinda "Museum" more an original house, where someone lived inside long times ago.
    It´s a good place to calm down and imagine the life in Bangkok nearly 80 years ago.
    The staff is so friendly and can explain some things in english, if you ask.
    You can watch the origin items, they´ve used or where used around 1930.
    It´s completly free, you only have to sign in and if you leave a tip, they will be happy

    What a wonderful experience! Poo and sister in law were so welcoming and helpful. We learned so much about cooking, and when fruits are ripe in the market. The food was delicious and the market was great and the overall experience was amazing. My 12 yo son and I had a great time. My husband was not feeling well and had to miss out on the fun but Poo packed him up some mango sticky rice and a large assortment of fruits. Also my son has a mango/papaya allergy and Poo had him make papaya salad with a Carrot and gave him a large serving of sticky rice minus mango for desert! Poo is such an inspiring lady with a great story and know she will have a lucky 2024!👍👍👍👍👍😃

    Khun Toom is funny and knowledgeable. Scrumptious food. Lots of fun. A perfect way to preserve Thai fresh food markets and learn more about the delicious cuisine we mostly take for granted. Get behind it by doing a morning class. Do not eat breakfast!

    My wife and I never had a Thai massage before and wanted to try something new so we booked an hour treatment. The massage was amazing as I never had anything quite like it before. I was lucky enough to be massaged by Bung and my wife had Mew. Very strong massage despite being so petite and she worked out all my aches and pains in every nook and cranny of my neck, legs and back. My wife had similar compliments for Mew. In fact, the massages were so good, we each booked a 90 minute massage at the Spa for the next day. Thank you ladies!

    We were eating at the Michelin noted fried chicken place Soi Polo Chicken. If you bring in their receipt to the spa, you get 20% off. Well we wanted to get a massage anyway so we tried it out.

    AMAZING!!
    It was so affordable, they are good at listening for how deep you want the pressure.

    It starts with juice and ends with hot tea.
    So good we had to go back!
