BANGKOK FOR TOURISTS
From vibrant street markets to air-conditioned shopping malls featuring luxurious brands such as Gucci, Rolex and Armani, Bangkok offers a broad spectrum of shopping opportunities. Just about everything can be bought in the city.
Guests looking for a unique place to indulge in a spot of shopping should make sure that they take a trip to Chatuchak market. The market is open throughout the day on Sundays and it is one of the largest markets in the whole of Asia.
Thailand’s holiest shrine, the temple houses a 66cm tall jadeite Buddha statue which is the most sacred Buddha image in Thailand. While part of the Grand Palace complex, Wat Prakaew is a prominent attraction of its own right and draws people from all over the world.
This stunning temple is home to the enormous gilded Reclining Buddha statue, while the large and lovely temple grounds are set with gently flowing waterfalls, ponds and the world-famous Wat Pho Thai Traditional Medical and Massage School.
