Bangkok

If you want fresh views and new experiences, you and your loved ones will adore the many sights and attractions of Bangkok.

This area of Central Thailand contains about 5,100,000 people.

Dynamic and truly international, Bangkok is renowned for Grand Palace and the Wat Pho. It is also known around the world for the Wat Arun and the Temple of the Emerald Buddha.

Take your partner and kids out to enjoy an afternoon of quality time at Dream World and Siam Park City. Want more? Dinosaur Planet and the Children’s Discovery Museum are also highly recommended by parents.

You don't have to have gills and scales in order to be able to tour the riches of the underwater world at Sea Life Bangkok Ocean World.

If you and your family love animal watching, the Dusit Zoo and the Safari World are obvious choices. Try out some of the educational programs at the Samutprakarn Crocodile Farm and Zoo to fill out your zoological trifecta.

Passionate plant lovers can get their botanical fix at the Suan Luang Rama IX Park and the Queen Sirikit Park.

Pack a picnic hamper and take five in the tranquil, green surroundings of Lumpini Park and Benjakitti Park. There's also plenty of space to lounge about in the grass at Saranrom Park and Makutromsaran Park.

A wise person once said, "If you look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." Keep this in mind when you look out over Koh Pannyi.

The area's exhibition spaces are a treasure trove of educational facts and stories. The Suan Pakkard Palace and the Erawan Museum offer a range of displays and collections that are sure to capture your attention. Another two to consider are the Museum of Siam and the Queen Sirikit Museum of Textiles.

Bangkok is a hub of artistic energy, with gallery and exhibition spaces all over. Pay a visit to the National Museum Bangkok and the National Gallery Bangkok to see the best of what this creative destination has to offer. The Numthong Gallery and the Teo+Namfah Gallery are also well worth your time if you can fit them in.

The Royal Barge National Museum will offer you a worthwhile glimpse into the world's colorful history. In addition to that, you might like to take a look at the exhibits at the Ban Kamthieng Museum or the Yaowarat Chinatown Heritage Center.

Learn more about this area's past with a trip to Jim Thompson House or the Thammasat University, just a couple of the historical sites here. You might also like to snap a few photos at the Muang Boran and the Mahidol University.

Be sure to make time to watch the water flow under Phra Phuttha Yodfa Bridge. This age-old structure has played an important role in connecting the city.

Phra Sumen Fort and Santichaiprakan Park act as reminders of Bangkok's military past. As you run your hand along their dusty walls, pay your respects to those who valiantly fought to defend their home.

When it came to designing Vimanmek Palace and Chitralada Palace, you'll see that money must not have been an issue. Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall and Phyathai Palace are two more stately homes that have their fair share of history hidden in the walls.

Whether you're spiritual or not, you'll be sure to have a pleasant time at the Wat Saket and the Wat Suthat. If you'd like to see a couple more religious sites, have a walk about the Wat Ratchanadda and the Sri Mariamman Temple.

After experiencing the principle attractions in and around Bangkok, take the time to explore a couple of its lesser-known sights. The Neilson Hays Library and Rama VIII Bridge are well worth a look. If you have more time to spare, also think about visiting Phahurat and the Thailand Creative & Design Center.
