True to its name, the Grand Palace is certainly “grand” indeed and this palatial compound will leave you in awe. Intricate architecture, religious iconography and stunning structures aside, it is also home to the famed Wat Phra Kaew or Temple of the Emerald Buddha.

 

2. Wat Arun

Also known as the Temple of the Dawn, the Wat Arun is an iconic landmark of Bangkok. Located along the banks of the Chao Phraya River, this amazing temple features a towering central prang (tower) adorned with colourful porcelain. Tip; dawn, sunset or night are the best times to visit this site.

 

3. Chatuchak Weekend Market

Not just for shopaholics, the colourful and lively Chatuchak Market give one the chance to explore the world’s biggest outdoor weekend market. Easily accessible from a hotel in Asoke such as the centrally located AVANI Atrium Bangkok, the market features thousands of stalls selling just about anything, bargains (and crowds!) galore and yummy street food too.

 

4. Khao San Road

An attraction in its own right, the mighty Chao Phraya River or River of Kings is well worth exploring on a cruise; apart from major tourist attractions, it offers a unique perspective of Bangkok too.
