    Booked a ticket online and easy to redeem. Staff are friendly as they helped you navigate your way to the rooftop. One of the best rooftop viewing point in Bangkok! Highly recommended for first timers especially.

    The lift to the top has beautiful corner to corner video screen interiors. To keep you distracted from 8mps speed, they play some charming videos.

    We went around evening dusk, the best time to visit for fascinating sunset and night view of the city. One can't get contented with the scenic views and would like to relax on pleasant evening.

    I am acrophobic, so even visiting the corners was also a task for me. Skywalk is only a few minutes of hesitation after which you can want like any other surface. Tip, don't look down initially when you are on the surface. Also, weekdays would cost lesser than weekend, so plan accordingly.

    Found this place by accident using Google Map. A easy 20 min walk there from IconSiam, when near it the road is quiet and full of trees on both sides, like a small village but just minutes away from the busy and noisy main street. The entrance is behind the security guard office, a bit hidden. There is no charge to enter. The house is well maintained, with 2 floors, you can still see some colourful murals on some of the walls. This place is late 19th century, very elegantly built. You will enjoy more if you are interested in Chinese history in Thailand. There are shops and eateries on-site but we didn't try any. You can walk towards the River front to look at the view, next door in the same compound is the temple for the Goddess Of The Sea but it is not opened. Can easily spend 30-40 minutes there and walked around the neighbourhood afterwards.

    I had visited this beautiful heritage house in Silom area during my holidays in Bangkok. Entrance fee is 50 baht per person. This is traditional wooden Thai house which has been converted into a museum showcasing artefacts traditionally used by the Thai people. There is a small garden and a water body with fishes in front of the house. It was a great experience getting up close with the traditional Thai lifestyle and clicking pics.

    This is one of the landmark building in Silom area and I have seen this beautiful 64 floors skyscraper many times while roaming around in Silom area. I was staying at Novotel Bangkok Silom Road hotel and this giant building was visible from the window of my hotel room. Lebua is a reputed hotel located in this building and also there is the Sky bar located on the top floor where popular Hollywood movie Hangover 2 was shot.

    This pretty fort was right next to our hotel so we used to go past it all the time. It’s incredible that there is such history right in the city and it is definitely worth finding if you are out exploring.

    Unfortunately, due to the current times, access was restricted but you can still get some great photographs from the outside.

    This is the former palace of King Rama the 6th that is now part of the army residence and hospital. It was built 99 years ago, about 1920. We ate lunch in the coffee shop and it is really a very nice room with a nice interior from the original period the palace was built. The wood in this room and the wood throughout the palace is really beautiful dark wood, probably teak; the architecture is wonderful if you appreciate good architecture. We took the guided tour which was only in Thai unfortunately. Out of about 30-40 people I was the only nonThai person on the tour so I don’t think many westerners know about this place, it’s really underrated as a tourist destination. The tour started at 1:30PM and lasted close to 4PM so you really get your moneys worth. The tour discussed King Rama VI, his queen, the architecture and the history of the place. Phyathai Palace was once as King Rama VI’s Bangkok palace, it was later transformed into a five-star hotel and it’s now the Royal Thai Army’s medical headquarters. The queen’s building used to be a hospital where surgeries took place at one point. There were some very interesting looking buildings, and lots of dark wood which I presume was teak. The palace was designed in the Romanesque style but there are gothic elements and some of the other buildings are in different styles. It was really very nice day and a completely unexpected good experience. If you wear shorts they’ll make you put on some long pants over them for the tour. I wish they’d sort of change this rule, there are no monks there. I’ll give it four stars, they need some English speaking guides on the tour and it would be nice if we didn’t have to wear long pants over shorts on these very hot days, after a 2 and a half hour tour I was soaked. They need to have air conditioning in the main buildings of the tour.

    This is about a 1km walk from Hua Lamphong MRT station.
    Enter via the school entrance, off to the right of where you think it should be.
    A relaxing atmosphere and beautiful stained glass windows.
    The whole thing is beautifully decorated.
    Recommended for a visit.

    Its elaborate architectural style reflects a western influence.
    Some rooms house exhibitions of art works, there is a silverware display room, a ceramic display room, a glassware display room and an ivory display room.Much to see for history buffs, fabulous building in teak.
    An entrance ticket from the Grand Palace allows free entry to Vimanmek Mansion .

    Such a beautiful golden temple within the Grand Temple. If you look up close the dome is formed through millions of tiny gold tiles. It looked amazing in the February sunshine!

    Being a fan of the film In the Mood for Love by Wong Kar Wai, I made sure to research on the filming locations that I can visit on my travels. Luckily, I had the chance to visit this place when I went to Bangkok last month. The place is old and abandoned but is still reminiscent of the Old Bangkok. Photos are not allowed to be taken but I managed to take a few since there was no guard watching. It is better to take photos from the other side (opposite where I took the photos) though. I suggest that you visit during daytime to see the beauty of the building. Get a cab or book a Grab so that you can directly get to the place.

    During our vacation in Bangkok we had visited the beautiful Grand Palace complex and the Upper Terrace is located within the complex. This is included in the 500 baht ticket price which includes the Wat Phra, Golden Stupa, Grand Palace, Queen Sirikit museum of textiles. The view from this place of the temple complex and the palace is mesmerizing and a paradise for all photography lovers.

    What a great place! This temple fetishizes Siamese trade with China via junks - the merchant vessels before the advent of coal-burning steamships. Windows in the ordination hall which look like portholes. Boundary-marker stones housed in white cylinders that evoke lighthouses. A stone ship which doubles as a little cemetery. And murals in the main temple which feature some of the gayest scenes I've ever laid eyes on in a Buddhist house of worship.
    The white-painted walls of the buildings almost glow in the right kind of light. The angles and ovals and tiers, and the fact that this temple is dedicated not just to the creed but to navigation on the high seas and on the Chao Phraya two centuries and so ago -- lovely and fascinating.
