Top 5 Must do's in Bangkok

Chao Phraya River
780/488 Charoen Krung Road, Bang Kho LaemBangkok 10120, Thailand

Soak up the beautiful Chao Phraya in its full beauty by hopping on a dinner cruise.
Not only will you be greeted with the city’s icons via a myriad of lights,
but also have a beautiful romantic candlelit dinner above the river.
Alternatively, one could also go opt for a more “local” manner of exploring; hop on, hop off boat or
even on a speedboat. These alternatives come at a cheap price tag and tends to be more
exciting and fast paced. Regardless of the manner of transport, you will experience and see the many
canals that dissect the city and all converging towards the river. If I may say so.
One of the best ways of getting to know the city.

Chao Phraya Express Boat Co.
There are in total of 5 public lines along the stretch of the 21 km long river that operate
between 0600 to 1930 easily identified by the coloured flag attached to the boat.
Do note that only the local line boat stops at every 34 piers, whereas the other
four lines only stop at specific piers. There is also the option of a tourist boat
that offers unlimited journeys to all nine prominent piers for as little as 150 baht (S$6.00).
Wat Arun - Temple of Dawn
158 Wang Doem Road | Wat Arun, Bang Kok Yai, Bangkok 10600, Thailand

Be amazed at the incredible craftsmanship upon arriving at Wat Arun - Temple of Dawn.
It is best visited in the morning where it will be less crowded, allowing you to be up
close and persona;lto the beautifully decorated walls.
The name “Wat Arun” comes from the Hindu god Aruna.
Whom is personified as the radiations of the rising sun. It is also noted that the first light of
the day reflects off the surface of the temple with a pearly iridescence

Climbing of the two upper platforms had to be the best feature of the temple,
It not only provides a breath-taking view of the beautiful city, but also
allowed us to view Wat Arunas a whole. However, the extremely steep
stairs posed quite some challenge, it is advisable to do some
lunges and squats to prepare for the journey up.

Erawan Shrine
Lumphini, Pathum Wan, Bangkok 10330, Thailand

The Four-Faced Buddha is famously known for granting the wishes of its worshippers.
With many praying for blessings, fulfilment of dreams, success in personal lives and careers.
The Erawan Shrine is conveniently located amidst in the busy part of
the city with shopping malls, hotels and trains going by overhead. It is often crowded
with worshipers and overflowing with the smell of fragrant incense and flowers.
A great place to stop by and have your prayers answered.
Chatuchak Weekend Market
Kamphaeng Phet 2 Rd, Khwaeng Chatuchak, Khet Chatuchak, กรุงเทพมหานคร 10900,

negotiation skills and always be prepared to walk away if the deal fails to go your way.
On a note, a friendly attitude and a big smile will be your greatest ally in securing the best
possible deal.

Asiatique The Riverfront
2194 Charoen Krung Rd, Khwaeng Wat Phraya Krai, Khet Bang Kho Laem, กรุงเทพมหานคร
10120, Thailand

Asiatique is really big! There are a total of six sculptures and seven wonders
of Asiatique that everyone should explore when they are there.
One of the main attractions there is a
60m high ferris wheel that cost 200 bahts (S$8.00), although it is nothing compared
to the Singapore Flyer, it provides you with a magnificent view of the Chao Phraya river.
Take the BTS to Saphan Taksin [S6]. From Saphan Taksin Station S6, 
take exit 2 to the pier [about 75-80 steps].  
At the Central Pier, we went to the left most dock to line up for the free shuttle boat to Asiatique.  Free ferry starts at 4:00 p.m. to 8 pm.  Line wait was about 15 minutes. Boat departs every 15 minutes.
