Bangkok has a long list of things to do. From restaurants to museums, beaches, shopping centres or historical sites, Bangkok has it all.
While one may visit the Bangkok National Museum, the Muang Boran museum or the Royal Elephant Museum to savour a taste of Bangkok's rich historical and cultural past, a day spent at the Lumpini Park will be memorable for a long time.
The Teak house of American architect Jim Thompson who inspired the flourishing of the Thai silk industry also has a special significance.
The Grand Palace built by King Rama I serves as the present residence of the current monarchy and is an important site too. The Wat Pra Kaeo temple situated nearby has an Emerald Buddha that dates back to the 15th century whose robes are rotated by the Thai king thrice a year.
The Wat Pho temple also houses a reclining Buddha statue. Wat Sutat temple also deserves mention because of its unusual ceremony.
The Klong community that reside in Bangkok lanes and live on trade by boat greatly contribute to tourism. The Vimanek Mansion filled with furniture, photographs, artwork and personal memorabilia of a 19th century king serves as a site for banquets and state receptions.
Most of the places in Bangkok have stipulated dress codes, deviating from which might lead to refusal of entry.
