Wait… are you wondering why i know these places? Well it’s simple, my husband and I lived in Thailand for two years and we both love to explore and these places are the one that we visited.
Grand Palace – you definitely need to see Grand Palace because you don’t want to miss all these majestic temples! It was built in 1782 and for 150 years the home of the Thai King, the Royal court and the administrative seat of government. You definitely need to see this palace because you will be amazed how beautiful it is. My husband and I been here many times. We always recommend this place to all of our guests/friends every time they visit us (when we still living there).
I do recommend ASIAN J STAR TRAVEL AND TOUR because they will give you a discount if you go to the tour with 3 – 10 people. And also they have a dress code when you visit here. Shoulders and knees MUST be covered to enter the temples.
Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn) – this temple is my husband’s favorite. The main detail of this temple is its central prang or spire which is coated with colorful porcelain. This temple was built in the early nineteenth century during the reign of King Rama II. I have been on top of Wat Arun only once because it is very stiff to climb. And plus I am scared of heights lol but if you are not scared of heights I do recommend to climb on top and you will see the Grand Palace across the Chao Phraya river.
Golden Buddha – this is a golden buddha and it weight 5.5 tons! Yes you heard that right! And the rest of the story is for you to find out when you visit here! 🙂
Chinatown (Yaowarat Road) – when you go here make sure try the peppery soup with crispy pork and rolled noodle! OMG I love this soup and you will definitely going to sweat because of the spice from the black pepper!
Koh Samet – its approximately 140 miles Southeast of Bangkok. If you are looking for a white sand beach and if you only have few days in Bangkok but wanted to see the beach this is the place to go! My husband and I been here many times and we both love it here. It’s perfect for a weekend trip and no need to go on the plane to see a beautiful beach!
Ayutthaya – it was the second capital of Siamese Kingdom. It’s about two hours driving from Bangkok. This place is destroyed by the Burmese army in 1767, burned the city to the ground and forced the people to abandon the city. It is very sad when you see it but it is part of the history. I recommend this place to visit when you come in Thailand.
Damnoen Saduak Floating Market – you need to go here! It is very packed on the weekend but worth to see and experience while shopping and eating. Yes, you can eat while on the boat! My favorite thing while on the boat is having the noodle soup it’s very tasty and the price affordable. You can shop basically from food, accessories, clothes, and much more! In order to get there you need to get on a bus at Southern bus terminal or hire a private taxi but might be a bit expensive make sure you bargain with the driver. Yes you can bargain! LOL. It’ll take you approximately two hours to get in Damnoen Saduak area and that’s where your journey begins! 🙂
