Top 5 Trending Attractions in gay BANGKOK for 2021

What Bangkok lacks in museums it makes up for in impressive temples and shiny palaces. If the city traffic, heat, or chaos get the best of you, pony up $9 for an hour-long massage to rub your troubles away.

1. Temple of the Emerald Buddha Wat Phra Kaew

Serenity surrounds this spiritual building. Thousands pray to the Emerald Buddha at this temple inside the Grand Palace. The Buddha – carved of a single block of jade – is one of the most revered in Thailand. On your way in, study the walls: the gilded characters of the Ramakien – Thailand’s adaptation of the Hindu Ramayana) – tell a visual tale of their own.

2. Grand Palace

The Grand Palace is the beating heart of Thailand. The Royal Family’s ceremonial home is a vast complex of buildings with paths swathed in golden light. Admire bejeweled sword-bearing Guardian Statues, view stately outfits in the Pavilion of Regalia, or bow before the Emerald Buddha at Wat Phra Kaew. Cover up – tight clothes, bare shoulders, arms and legs are a no-no!

3. Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha)

Ladies and Gentlemen: the birthplace of Thai massage. This elaborate temple doubles as the national headquarters for the education and preservation of traditional Thai medicine. If you prefer not to enrol in a study programme, walk the galleries filled with gilded images of Buddha, relax with the 46-metre long Reclining Buddha, or chat with the local monks.

4. Wat Arun, Temple of the Dawn

Cool grey from a distance and a cavalcade of colour up close, Wat Arun’s fierce details leap at you from every direction. The main feature of this temple is its ‘prang’, a colossal tower covered with colourful porcelain that glistens in the sunlight. Scale the temple to admire the details up-close, or look at it from the east side of Chao Phraya River at sunset.

5. Chao Phraya River

Adventure lies just around the river-bend. Rolling Chao Phraya River is Bangkok’s arterial waterway and main thoroughfare for boat traffic. Soak up a host of city sights in one shot with a short cruise that runs you past the major sites. Visit the bars and restaurants of the five-star hotels that pepper the shoreline for deliriously sublime vistas, even more so at dusk.
