It has proved itself as a tourist friendly and lively city because of its travel destinations and must see attractions. There are a lot of places to see in Bangkok but here I am going to describe some of its major tourist’s attractions.
This zoo is located in the heart of Bangkok and attracts thousands of visitors every year. It was previously a botanical garden for King Rama (five) but now it has become one of the most popular family attractions. The zoo contains a large collection of different animals including 300 mammals. Its specialty is 1000 exotic birds. The animals which you will find here include monkeys, elephants, rhinos, crocodiles and some rare animals. It is one of the most visited places of Bangkok and becomes crowded by the people on weekends.
Grand Palace is one of the most gorgeous buildings of Bangkok. It is located on the eastern bank of Chao Phraya River. The palace is built in such a way that it combines both traditional Thai architecture and European designs. It was once the official home for the kings of Siam but now it is the major tourists’ destination in Thailand. This palace is still in the use of King where ritual occasions are held. The most beautiful attractions within the palace include Royal Funeral Hall and Royal Coronation Hall. Another main attraction is the 45 centimeters Emerald Buddha. It is considered as the most religious object in whole Thailand. It is very beautifully engraved from one piece of Jade.
It is the largest and most popular park in Bangkok having entrance gates on all sides. In this park, lawns, wooded areas and beautiful walking paths surround an artificial lake. The best time to visit the park is early in the morning. At this time, you will see a lot of people doing exercise in the park. At the lake, you can also take rowing boats and puddle boats on rent and have a wonderful experience. Along the gates of the park, many vendors have arranged their tables to distribute fresh snake blood and bile which are considered good for health. In this park, some facilities are also provided for the people who come here for picnic. These facilities include snack bar, tables and chairs and rest rooms. There are also some tables where Chinese tea is served by ladies.
Visiting China Town is an experience which should never be missed. It is a beautiful place providing a chance to taste Chinese food, visiting markets and watching fine examples of beautiful architecture. There are a lot of gold markets in China Town. Besides visiting gold markets, you can also find ornaments, textiles, antiques, musical instruments and historical Chinese medicine shops.
