Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The temple area is huge a lot of things to see. Foreigner admission is 200 baht. Workmanship is extraordinary. Easy to get lost.

    A must visit if you are in the city and interested in history/culture. The building housing thr emerald buddha is a work of art - the murals cover the whole of the very sizeable inner walls. You could look at these for a day and still not take all the detail in!

    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.

    We arrived at Sanam Chai metro station and the Flower Market was well sign-posted.

    The Flower Market is covered, so it was nice to shelter inside and escape a heavy rainfall.

    The Market seems to be bisected by a major road, and each side seems to have fruits/veg and flowers (lots of marigolds, roses, orchids). On one side there is also a shrine.

    Eating is more challenging here as we didn’t find a lot on offer, but we did find a street-side restaurant selling pad-Thai and noodles - AND we could sit down - for 50 THB, and both were fantastic.

    I did feel a bit voyeuristic in the market, but nobody seemed to mind our being there. Occasionally a motorbike would whizz through the market, and plenty of men pulling enormous wicker baskets - one even had an old lady in it!

    We enjoyed it and found it very vibrant.

    The taxi driver couldn’t believe we wanted to visit in the afternoon as it seems Khaosan Road really comes to life in the evening. With three kids in tow - 19, 17 and 12 - we decided daytime was best. Not a lot was open - scorpions on a stick, an excellent fresh juice bar on the street (all sorts of fruit combinations blended with ice for 50 THB - £1.25), and lots of massage shops. All 5 of us had a massage in the same shop and got 10% off as a family discount. It was all above board and age appropriate- 2 half hour foot massages and 3 half hour Thai massages for 150 THB each. The longer you go for, the prices go down so, for example, a one hour foot massage is 250 THB. It’s quite public - you are having your feet massaged alongside a bank of others doing the same thing but, oh, it’s good after a day of walking around Bangkok.This is cheaper than Khao Lak where 30 minutes isn’t even on offer and one hour is 300 THB.

    Don’t ignore the surrounding streets. We walked through neighbouring streets to get back to the river to pick up the tourist boat all the way back to Sathorn Pier (day time only) and passed through really nice shops etc.

    I didn’t like some of the signs on Khaosan Road, but that’s because I’m an over-protective parent. Things like “Come in and we promise you won’t remember your holiday “ and “Four things to do on Khaosan Road: blah blah, have a tattoo, blah blah”.

    Glad we left before dark when I think the character would have changed.

    I went on 15 May 2022 (Vesak / Bucha Day). Temple have more people went for prayers. A very big temple and have many high steps. Entrance have a counter that ask for 100 bahts for "tourists" (give u an Eng brochure and a drink). The drink cost less than 100 bahts. 1 star down for this point.

    Wat Suthat is very famous for the Medicine Buddha (Phra Kring) amulet!

    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.

    Nice temple to visit. Went on Vesak (Bucha) Day - 15 May 2022. Not too crowded. Mostly local Thais going.
    Recommended temple.

    Wat Ratchanatdaram is a temple less for tourists than for devotees, worshippers or generally those interested in the sacred. It is a working, very well-doing monastery that is more about itself and less about how it looks. It is a bit hidden in the sense of a tree being hidden in the forest, in that it is in the middle of other Rattanakosin attractions but much less spectacular, or loud. I find the Buddha image in the main viharn one of the most stunning and accessible in all Bangkok.

    The Loha Prasat is too incredible to describe on tripadvisor - an iron-spired stupa with the inner structure accessible mostly for meditation, and as many people attest, with an immense spiritual power. This is a building to focus in, to think only good thoughts or none at all, and to respect where you are. On top, a tiny chapel open to all sides with relics of the Buddha, to which one ascends up the most perfect wooden spiral staircase.

    The Milkey Tree Café behind the Loha Prasat is great for respite; beyond that is an exit that leads you to one of the best-priced, comprehensive, and non-touristy amulet and devotionals markets in the city.

    We were here for Indian street food during lunchtime. Highly recommended for vegetarian people. Samosa Corner, a food stall right next to India Emporium Mall was very nice. Keep going straight to the same alley, Punjab Sweets is on the left side. A small local cafe with lovely sweet and tea for both eat in and takeaway.

    We also tried Burmese noodles, a food stall nearby with other veggie food stalls around. There are some little veggie food court on the top floor of India Emporium with free toilets in the mall. Very quiet tho.

    So many indian food, clothes, souvenirs and different products in this Bangkok Little India (Phahurad). We spent a few hours here. I reckon you come here during weekdays for less crowd.

    Lots of shops selling figurines, avenger toys, a few shops for board games, 3+ toys, pretend play toys, and scooters for kids. Prices are cheaper than regular stores.
    We didn’t find many shops for babies and 1 year olds, just one store selling wooden toys on the first floor.

    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.

    This is a part of the grand palace tour. After you finish the grand palace tour you are guided on a free bus ride to this theatre. Very majestic and you can watch Thai traditional art forms. If you have the time it is definitely worth it. The shows are of very good standard.

    This is a beautiful boutique mall with craft shops and other shops that sell more traditional Thai goods. Its a really good location for getting to the palaces and temples - indeed we met out guide here. It does feel very chic and you can people watch from one of the many restaurants or cafe's/bars as well as watching the boats go by on the river.
