The populous Bangkok city is one of the top-visited cities in the world -- and it's easy to see why. Growing from a small trading town to the glorious and grand city rated highly by different entities worldwide, the capital of Thailand is a fun and beautiful place. With colourful floating markets, dazzling temples and spectacular palaces, Bangkok has it all. Each of its vibrant and richly historical attractions has a long and fascinating story to tell.
A trip to Bangkok is not complete without a visit to the Grand Palace, which commands respect from all the people who visit the spectacular site. Boasting of alluring architecture and intricate detail, the beautiful palace is among the most visited places in the city.
Wat Arun (The Temple of Dawn) is yet another top site in Bangkok and serves as a landmark in the city. The Buddhist temple is located on the shores of Thonburi bank of the Chao Phraya River. The magnificent temple is the most photographed site in the city. Other awe-inspiring temples in the city include Temple of Emerald Buddha, Wat Pho and Wat Mahadhat.
Top of the things to do while visiting Thailand is to visit the stunning floating markets. While there are several options available to tourists, Damnoen Sadual floating market is the biggest. It is located 100 km from Bangkok but the drive is well worth the trouble. The colourful market has lots of boats loaded with goods such as fruit and vegetables floating on a river. Other markets in Bangkok include Talin Chan floating market and Amphawa floating market.
Besides sightseeing and the array of amusements in this vivacious city, Bangkok offers the best dining experience in the world. From top-rated resorts to romantic getaways on rooftops, the city has it all. With a host of possibilities in the capital, one will be spoilt for choice. Top choices in the city include Tealicious Bangkok, Scarlett Wine Bar and Restaurant and Eat Me Restaurant.
