- Things to do
Among the finest places to shop in Asia, Bangkok has earned an unmatched reputation catering to even the most discerning of Shoppers. A shopping spree to Bangkok would not be complete without a visit to the famous markets since they are known to be the ideal way to feel the distinctive Thai experience. Markets differ from the hot and clammy places like Chatuchak Weekend Market and Pratunam. There are also the more sophisticated markets such as the popular Suan Lum Night Bazaar. Other well-known markets include Patpong Night Market, Taling Chan Market, Damnoen Saduak, Pahurat Textile Market, Bai Yoke, Bo-bae Market, Pak Khlong Talat and Klong Toey.
A variety of tours in long-tail or other boats can be arranged for visitors to travel on the river and canals. Visits usually include a stop at the impressive Temple of Dawn and the Royal Barge Museum before continuing along the canal to see charming wooden homes built on stilts along the river.
A visit to Bangkok would be incomplete without exploring the magnificent Grand Palace, the city's most prominent landmark. The Grand Palace was built in 1782 and for about 150 years it served as the residence of the Thai King, the government's administrative seat as well as the Royal court.
The Jim Thompson Museum is filled with art treasures and was the former home of Jim Thompson, the legendary American who helped revive the silk industry in Thailand after World War II. Situated on the banks of a canal just opposite a silk weaving village, the home consists of traditional Thai style buildings filled with an interesting collection of antiques.
A former royal palace in Bangkok, Vimanmek Mansion in Thailand is famous as the Vimanmek Teak Mansion. This impressive three storey palace is the biggest golden teak building in the world. Built as a summer house in 1868, the mansion boasts of 81 splendid rooms and soon became the favourite place of King Rama V.
Today visitors to the Vimanmek National Museum will find numerous belongings of King Rama V. The first indoor bathroom of Thailand can be viewed here. The country's oldest typewriter is also among the various displays.
The most intriguing feature is that the Vimanmek Mansion was built completely with the use of golden teakwood and not a single nail was used in it construction. This European style palace set up according to age old Thai tradition was created by Teakwood for its charm and special features. For instance, Teakwood contains a particular type of oil that makes it heat resistant and acts as an insect repellent despite being exposed to heavy rains.
