    Several interesting things to see. Probably could’ve spent more time there, but was too hot after a long day. Dress conservatively

    The temple structures are amazing. The Buddha serene statues and other sculptures are worth a visit. The place is beautifully landscaped. The destination is easy to reach by cab (bolt /grab)

    Early June is a perfect time to visit Thailand and to see these wonderful sights. It was almost empty because of COVID closures earlier and not many travellers now. Weather is good although Monsoon will soon arrive. The temples and buildings are a must see.

    We happened to take the Chao Phraya Princess Cruise from the Iconsiam Mall. The river is a travel to remember You get to see a few temples, The Grand Palace and the magnificent Rama Bridge. The Bangkok skyline is truly fascinating.

    Beautiful and as a newbie to Thai culture definetley worth a visit. Also, did the free guided tour at 2.30pm. Very informative and detail heavy so need to be keen for this to undertake it but learnt a lot I would not have otherwise. Starting to get busy but was told by locals that still very quiet so if you can a great time to visit. Remember to wear modest clothing unless you want to buy some elephant trousers.

    I went to Bangkok on APR-MAY and this is my first mall in Bangkok.
    This mall has many shops, they are all fancy but reasonable.
    I love Thai street food court on ground floor

    I'be been here before COVID and the experience was very different. COVID took is toll in Bangkok. Only about 25% of the stalls are occupied it is really sad to see a once buzzing area changed to a tranquil and quite place.

    Bring said the above it is still worthwhile visiting. Eating here is memorable. I ate the best Thai cuisine dish at KUE Sa Wa Dee out of all the previous 15+ trips to Bangkok and the islands.

    Big wheel is still operational as well as the spooky: Mystery Mansion. Still a big photo opportunity market

    I am staying in Chinatown as this is where my hotel is , I booked for 7 nights , but I think 3 or 4 would be enough.The place is busy and that’s a good thing , you are spoiled for choice when it comes to food you name it they have it . You may get lost as you twist and turn your way around every laneway , I have found that mostly the only places to eat is on the street and again that’s a good thing. I would love to have a cold beer with my meal but that can be hard to find . Plenty of shopping to do and be prepared to walk a lot as that is the best way to see the real Chinatown.

    Had a good time visiting Bangkoks national museum. There was so much to see and learn about, and seemed like there was something for everyone. We had to visit whilst in bangkok so that’s exactly what we spent an afternoon doing. Ended our tour in the little cafe.

    This is not a tourist attraction. This is real working flower market. Beautiful flowers, other items for sale but predominately flowers. Watch them make the flower offerings and funeral offerings. It is crowded. Be mindful of the scooters that use the aisles just like the pedestrians. Authentic and genuine and chaotic experience.

    A fun lighthearted interactive museum full of information about what it means to be Thai. Admission is very reasonable and as we were over 60, it was free for us, even including the English audio guide. Each room has a different theme and you can spend as little as much time as you want and each one. Some did not have a lot that we could play with in English, whereas others were clearly marked in both Thai and English. One long narrated display alternates performance languages. The museum itself is housed in a very interesting old colonial governmental building. The staff were super helpful. Also has a small but interesting gift shop too. This would be an excellent activity for children as well as adults.

    I thought this would be such a creepy journey but the museum really gave you different experiences. I highly recommend this place to medical student or to any of you who interested in medical thingy. You should come at least once to this place.

    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.

    It was not what I expected, more fabrics than clothes. But it was nice overall. People there were very friendly.

    This fascinating street runs parallel to the far busier Khao San Road and it is more to our taste. It is much quieter yet still has loads going on and is completely entertaining.

    You cut through it down a little walking street and you will find plenty to do. Lots of shops, bars, restaurants and street food make it a fascinating place just to sit and people watch.

    There is a lovely bar at one end called truffle where they have great happy hour and excellent music. We headed for it every night and had a wonderful time.
