Bangkok’s riverside is the area that is full with historical sites. It is a must area to visit especially for the first time visitor. If you want to know what you can do around Bangkok’s riverside, you have come to the right place. In this post, I intend to share you what to see in Bangkok’s riverside. Hope it is useful.
The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew
The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew are one of the top attractions in Bangkok because of their history and the eye-catching buildings, ubosots, the 12 huge giants, and mural painting. To visit this place, you have to dress properly. See The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew for more detail.
Wat Pho or the temple of the Reclining Buddha is another popular attraction. People come here in order to see the huge reclining Buddha. Besides, this temple is also popular for Thai traditional massage. If you go there, don’t forget to give it a try.
Wat Arun or the temple of dawn is a temple that looks beautiful from a far distance and also very close. At this temple, you can climb the pagoda.
Pak Klong Talad
Pak Klong Talad is the biggest fresh flower market in Bangkok. It is one of the popular sightseeings in Bangkok. This market is open 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. The best time to go there is at night or early morning.
Asiatique The Riverfront
Asiatique The Riverfront is a lifestyle shopping center with 1,500 shops and 40 restaurants on the Chao Phraya River bank. To see a nice view, I recommend you to go there in the evening.
Tha Maharaj is similar to Asiatique The Riverfront, but it is much smaller. I like the atmosphere and many cute shops there. It is also a great place to chill in the evening.
Wang Lang is a market where you can expect to see local people. Many Thais love this market. You can buy cheap clothing and delicious street food here.
Tha Phra Arthit
Tha Phra Arthit is a nice area to walk around especially in the evening. There are many delicious restaurants and bars on this street and it is not far from Khao San Road.
