Tourist Hotspots in Bangkok :

If you are planning on visiting Bangkok any time soon, you should try to make it along to at least one of these stunning tourist hotspots while you are there:

 

The Grand Palace and Wat Phrakaew

The Royal Pantheon building at Wat Phrakaew, Bangkok The Royal Pantheon building at Wat Phrakaew, Bangkok

This eighteenth century palace is one of the most instantly recognisable landmarks in all of Bangkok. Original built at the behest of King Rama I, it is still for official ceremonies byf the current monarchy. Also nearby is the temple of Wat Phrakaew, which is the home of the 15th century Emerald Buddha, a truly stunning statue of great religious significance.
The only person that is allowed to touch the statue is the King of Thailand himself (or His representative), who rotates the robes on the statue in a thrice-yearly ceremony. It is important to note that in this, or indeed any place of worship in Bangkok, photography, loud talking and laughing are strictly prohibited at all times, and you must not interrupt services while they are in progress.
The palace and the temple are open all year round to tourists between the hours of 8.30am and 4.30pm, although it is closed for lunch from mid-day until 1pm.

Wat Pho

Most statues of Buddha portray him in the lotus position, but this one is different. The Reclining Buddha at the temple of Wat Pho is a huge 150ft statue covered in gold leaf, with soles inlaid with mother of pearl. It portrays the Buddha lying on his side with his head propped up on his elbow in an apparent state of bliss. As well as being the first university in Thailand, Wat Pho is also the most popular place in the world to learn Thai massage.

Muang Boran

This massive, three hundred and fifty acre open-air museum is kind of like a miniature version of the country of Thailand itself. Here, you will find scale reproductions of historic castles, houses, temples, and early cities alongside performers doing traditional dances and songs and crafts people giving demonstrations of Thai folk art. There are guided group tours available, or you can simply set out to explore the history of Thailand at your own pace.
