1- The Grand Palace
The Grand Palace is an architectural marvel located right in the middle of Bangkok city. For years it had been the official residence of the Kings of Siam, and now it serves as a tourist hotspot. The Temple of the Emerald Buddha is one of the must-see structures inside the palace complex.
2- China Town
The current Chinatown in Bangkok was created by Chinese immigrants around 200 years ago when they were cleared out from their previous localities to build the Grand Palace.

Built by King Rama I, this temple will leave you in wondrous awe the moment you enter it.
4- Chatuchak Weekend Market
The Chatuchak market is spread across an area of 35 acres, if that does not give you an idea of how large the place is then you have to see it for yourself. You can get just about any merchandise that you can think of from the over 8, 000 stalls present in the market.
