Bangkok has many attractions around the town. If you want to see them all, it might need a month. In this post, I would like to recommend you 5 places in Bangkok and around that are worth visiting and you can visit them all in 3-4 days.
- Wat Phra Kaew and the Grand Palace
Visiting temple is one of the activities you should do when you are in Thailand. For me, Wat Phra Kaew is the most beautiful temple in Bangkok. It is located in the grand palace. Both of them are Bangkok’s major attractions. The admission fee might be a little bit expensive, but believe me it is worth it. See this post for the detail of Wat Phra Kaew and See this post for the detail of the grand palace.
- Vimanmek Mansion
Vimanmek Mansion is a former Royal Palace which is built from golden teakwood. There are 72 rooms in the building. Each room displays King Rama V’s photographs and handicrafts. The ticket to enter Wat Phra Kaew and the Grand Palace includes entry to Vimanmek.
- Chatuchak Weekend Market
If you love shopping and bargain, Chatuchak is your place. It is the biggest market in Thailand. You can find almost everything that you want here. If you want to go there, I recommend you to read this post first in order to get to know this market a little bit before you go and also prepare yourself to not get lost in the maze of stalls.
- Platinum Fashion Mall
If you feel like Chatuchak is too big for you and what you want to buy is only clothes, shoes, handbags, and accessories, go to Platinum Fashion Mall.
