Grand Palace and Wat Phra Keo
This city landmark should be the first place on any visitor’s itinerary. It is a huge compound on Na Phra Lan Road consisting of several buildings with highly decorated architectural designs. Wat Phra Kaeo in the same compound enshrines the Emerald Buddha image, most revered by the people. The complex is open daily from 8.30 a.m.-3.30 p.m. Proper attire is essential.
A popular oasis named after the Buddha's birthplace, Lumphini Park provides a green and relatively peaceful retreat from the heat and noise of the rest of the city. The best time to arrive is just after sun up, when hordes of fitness fanatics can be spotted jogging, doing aerobics or ballroom dancing, and practising Tai Chi or yoga. You can hire a paddle boat, eat at one of the well-priced outdoor restaurants, or just take it easy under a shady tree.
This world famous temple is located on Thai Wang Road next to the Grand Palace. It is Bangkok’s oldest and largest temple. The gigantic gold plated reclining Buddha with inlaid mother-of pearl soles is highly revered among Buddhists. Also regarded as the first center of public education, or sometimes called 'Thailand’s first university', the temple houses mural paintings, inscriptions, and statues which educated people on varied subjects; for example, literature, warfare, archaeology, astronomy, geology, meditation, medicine, and Thai traditional massage.
This temple on Bamrung Muang Road is famous for the excellent murals created in the reign of King Rama III. The vihara (preaching hall) should be seen for its collection of gilded Buddha images. A huge door with intricate carving, which is the masterpiece of King Rama II, once belonged to this temple and is now kept in the National Museum. In front of the temple is the Giant Swing or Sao Ching Cha, where a Brahmanic ceremony had taken place until the early 20th century. Many nearby shops stock a very comprehensive range of Buddhist religious supplies.
Within walking distance of the Grand Palace, this complex was once a palace consisting of several old beautiful Thai style buildings. It houses a vast collection of artifacts found in all parts of the country ranging from Neolithic times, Sukhothai, Ayutthaya to the Bangkok period.
