One day trip in Bangkok



When arriving in Bangkok, things that tourists should not miss is visiting various temples. With beautiful works, such as Phra Kaew Temple in Grand Palace, the city's most famous landmark, and various buildings within the area. What to know in coming to Grand Palace is dressing, not wearing shorts and sleeveless shirts visited which the temple has a loan to cover but you will waste a lot of time because there are a lot of tourists who do not know this rule. You should arrive at around 8:30 am because the weather is not very hot and not many tourists. It will take about 1.30 - 2 hours to visit. After that, walk out to the back of Wat Phra Kaew then go to Wat Pho (the Temple of the Reclining Buddha), or Wat Phra Chetuphon, is located behind the Temple of the Emerald Buddha) to visit the beautiful Reclining Buddha statue that is famous including construction within the temple area and if desired Tourists can try traditional Thai massage at all times. Most tourists do not know that Wat Pho is a Thai massage school. That the person who will go out for a massage career must study and receive a certificate from this school first (Wat Pho is a traditional Thai massage school). After that, tourists came to board the Chao Phraya River at Tha Prachan pier to come through the lunch at Wang Lang Market Which is the name of the Thai people, about the variety of Thai food that is available in a wide range of affordable prices. After that, proceed to Wat Arun temple to visit one of Bangkok's most photographed places, then take a boat to cross back to Tha Prachan to ride a tuk tuk, another symbol of Thailand to visit Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall that is beautiful throne of Thailand. If you want to see beautiful sunset at the riverside you ride a tuk or taxi back to Wat Phra Kaew and continue on to the river to wait for the right time to take pictures of the sunset with Wat Arun at the background.




After that, if you want to try the famous street food at Khao San Road then you can travel a short distance away by a tuk tuk or taxi, no more than 2 km away, is the end of the day trip. You can find many places to party with your friends or try famous Thai foods in this place.

If you want to see the sunset in the atmosphere on the Chao Phraya River I recommend you the latest attractions, Icon Siam, which is a recently opened shopping mall in Dec. 2018.
