Amphawa floating market tour and other Bangkok destinations


Posted On Jun 28 2019

Bangkok is an amazing destination to see. We will talk about Bangkok attractions and especially the Bangkok floating market. Dusit Palace is the name of the compound of Royal residences, constructed in European style between 1897 and 1901 for King Rama V. The most prominent building is the Vimanmek Mansion, built of golden teak wood. The world’s largest wooden mansion, it contains 31 exhibition rooms as well as the throne room, bathrooms and bedrooms. If you visit the Grand Palace before this one make sure you keep your ticket as it gives you free entry into the mansion.

Wat Arun is something of a triumphant complex, dating back to ancient battles between the former Siam and Burma. Having fallen to the Burmese, Ayutthaya was reduced to rubble and ashes. But General Taksin and the remaining survivors vowed to march “until the sun rose again” and to build a temple there. Wat Arun, the Temple of the Dawn, was that temple. It is where the new king later built his royal palace and a private chapel. If you climb to the top of the prang just before sunset, you are rewarded with an unforgettable view as the sun sinks over the Chao Praya River. Even if you don’t plan to be doing any climbing, sunset is really the time to take in this place in all its glory.
