Bang Kruai

Bangkok, Thailand

How do you get to Bang Kruai?

Venture to Bangkok National Museum and Khaosan Road—just a couple of the popular sights around Bang Kruai.

Things to do in Bang Kruai

Tour this teak royal house, which was influenced by the style of the palaces of Europe and is surrounded by museums, gardens and canals.

Known by locals as the “Lung of Bangkok,” this green breathing space provides a quiet haven for rest, sport and recreation to residents and visitors alike.

The majestic European/Asian-style complex was once the home of the kings of Siam and is now both a place of worship and a must-see Bangkok landmark.

A small but extremely important Thai religious icon sits on a golden pedestal within the ornate Wat Phra Kaew structure on the grounds of the Grand Palace.

This “anything goes” street is a hot spot for budget travelers who want to buy cheap clothes and souvenirs, people-watch or party all night.

The “Temple of the Reclining Buddha” is the largest temple in the country and has more Buddha statues than any other Thai temple.

Head to this ancient temple and you’ll also find the Golden Mount, a structure that offers panoramic views as a reward for climbing the 318 steps to the top.

The high, Khmer-style tower of the “Temple of Dawn” is one of Bangkok’s most photographed landmarks... at sunset!
