Bangkok is a capital of Thailand or in Thai known as Krung Thep Mahanakhon.  Its full name is Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Yuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Phiman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit which has a world record of the longest capital name.  Bangkok is a vibrant city that has so much to offer to visitors so as to one day isn’t enough to explore.  Whether to discover Thailand’s rich culture heritage through temples and palaces, discover the living lives along the canals and Chao Phraya River where Thais used boats as a key transport in the old days, walk around the night bazaar, feel the authentic cuisines, or discover the uniqueness of the traditional Thai massage and therapeutic treatment of Thai herbs; these are all true experiences accompanying with Thai hospitality as well as Thai traditional culture presenting you the best memories which cannot be found any where else on earth.

 

The frequent asked questions by many travellers are where to visit, what to do, what to see in Bangkok. A suggested itinerary for a visitor to must visit places is to help and fulfill your wishes.  I’ve categorised in 3 different groups for 3-day visit in Bangkok before you take off to other interesting destinations:

 

AMAZING BANGKOK

Day 1

 

The Grand Palace - Every visitor to Bangkok should see the magnificent buildings within the Grand Palace compound to get a feeling of the grandeur architectural style.  Since the founding of Bangkok as the Nations capital by King Rama I, The Grand Palace has been the major architectural symbol of The Thai Royal Family. In the present time, The Royal Family resides at Chitralada Palace while The Grand Palace is used for ceremonial purposes.  The main buildings within the Grand Palace compound were built for King Rama V, who was the first Thai King to travel to Europe.

 

“Phra Thinang Chakri Maha Prasat” built in 1877 by King Rama V as his Royal Residence, is the most highly recognized architectural landmark of the Nation. The central Throne Hall, which was formerly used for the reception of foreign envoys, is flanked by reception areas decorated with galleries of portraiture. The central room on the second floor is used as a shrine for the reliquary ashes of Kings Rama IV, Rama V, Rama VI, Rama VII and Rama VIII.

 

“Borom Phiman Mansion” was also constructed during the reign of King Rama V. When his son, King Rama VI ascended to the throne, he had it improved for use as his residence. The three succeeding Kings also resided here at one time or another. 

 

“The Siwalai Gardens” where the office of The Royal Household Bureau is located, were used for receptions as well as a recreation area for the royal women and children.

 

Maha Monthien Prasat houses The Audience Hall of Amarin Winitchai where ceremonies of the Court usually take place in front of the throne surmounted by its canopy of nine tiers of white cloth.

 

Wat Phrakeo (Temple of the Emerald Buddha) - The most famous structure, and undoubtedly the holiest temple in Thailand.  Wat Phrakeo was built by King Rama I after he moved the capital from Thonburi to Rattanakosin (present day Bangkok), and was completed in 1882.  The temple also houses the holiest image in the entire Kingdom, the Emerald Buddha, which sits on a highly ornate golden throne surrounded by 112 celestial birds and serpents known as garudas and nagas respectively.  The galleries surrounding the main shrine are covered with traditional mural paintings depicting the entire Ramayana.  An usual fact about this royal temple is that no monks are housed within its complex.

Visitors are required to dress appropriately. Thus the following dress - code (applicable to both ladies and gentlemen) is requested: 1. Shorts, mini-skirts, short skirts, tight fitting trousers, as well as tights can not be worn as outer garments. 2.

The Art of Kingdom — a magnificent exhibition of exquisite but rarely seen traditional Thai crafts reflects the decades of work initiated under The Foundation for the Promotion of Supplementary Occupations and Related Techniques or the SUPPORT Foundation under the Royal Patronage of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit.

 

The SUPPORT project was launched in 1970 by Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand and was established as a foundation on 21 July 1976.  The Foundation for the Promotion of Supplementary Occupations and Related Techniques or SUPPORT Foundation is dedicated to the preservation of the Thai art and cultural heritage and craftsmanship and has enabled farmers to earn supplementary income during the period after the annual harvest.

 

The highlights of the Arts of the Kingdom exhibition currently being held at the Ananta Samakom Throne Hall at Dusit Palace include the awe-inspiring Suphannapetra golden junk – a masterpiece handcrafted by the artisans of the SUPPORT Foundation and presented to Her Majesty Queen Sirikit on Her Majesty’s 72nd birthday anniversary, the Phra Mahajanaka golden junk studded with precious gems and embellished with beetle wing collage, as well as several new additions to the collection.

 

Supatra River House - This two-story traditional Thai house on the banks of the Chao Phraya River near on the Temple of the dawn is a little piece of Thai history. It was formerly the home of Khunying Supatra Singholaga , who in addition to being a successful business lady was a leading advocate of women' s rights in Thai society.  The house was converted into a first-class restaurant and dinner theater. Guests can relax in informal surrondings and enjoy the very best in Thai cuisine, particularly the fresh seafood dishes.

Here you are amongst friends, for this is still very much a family house run in the traditional Thai way. The decor is modern furnishing for the comfort of all out guests. In the day time there is the shade of the trees and the cool river breezes, while in the evening you can watch the sun setting and the lights coming on across the water in the Grand Palace.

Supatra River House is easily accessible from both sides of the river. You can take our own ferry, a lovely old traditional wooden craft, from Maha Raj ferry pier at Maha Raj Road. Or if you are on Thonburi side you can reach the restaurant via the small lane named Trok Wat Rakhang.

 

Day 2

Rose Garden - Rose Garden’s award-winning Cultural Centre transports you into a typical Thai Village, where villagers guide you through some of the iconic experiences of Traditional Thai Living. Guests can learn about silk-weaving, pottery-making, umbrella-painting, martial arts, fruit carving, garland-making, rice-pounding and cultivation. Watch the rich displays of Thai period costumes or the preparation of the fiery papaya salad (som tom) or the sweet snacks khanom. Learn about the care of elephants, and help feed these animals that play such an important role in traditional Thai lifestyles.

 

From 10am to 12pm daily, visitors from children to corporate groups can enjoy hands-on experiences about aspects of Thai lifestyle from the Rose Garden’s own trainers.

This is a Journey to the Enchanted Kingdom of Thailand that no one can miss.  

Day 3

Suan Pakkad Palace - is the first museum in Thailand where the owner, their Royal Highnesses Prince and Princess Chumbhot of Nagara Svarga, decided to convert their private residence, built in the traditional Thai style opened in 1952, is located on 6 Rai on Sri Ayudhya Road, Bangkok, containing their Royal Highnesses Prince and Princess Chumbhot of Nagara Svarga's collection of antiquities, which has been passed down through successive generations. The Suan Pakkad Palace is a combination of fine arts and ancient artifacts from the era of H.R.H. Prince Paribatra Sukhumbandhu, son of His Majesty King Chulalongkorn, Rama V and Her Majesty Queen Sukhumala Marasri.

 

There are groups of 4 traditional Thai houses with the covered hallway between them. Houses 5 to 8 are located along the west side of the property. The Lacquer Pavilion stands in the main garden to the south of the compound. The Ban-Chiang Museum [Thai Heritage] and Marsi Gallery are in the Chumbhot-Pantip Centre of Arts.

 

Vimanmek Palace - an outstanding example of 19th century architecture. While admiring the craftsmanship of the carpenters, you will travel back through time to gain a rare insight into the lifestyle of royalty. 

 

Vimanmek Mansion, the principal building in the palace compound, was built for King Rama V on land he named The Dusit Garden located between Padung Krungkasem and Samsen canals. The completion was celebrated on March 27, 1901 and King RamaV took up residence until 1906. The mansion was originally his Summer Palace, the Munthaturaltanaroj Residence, on Sri Chang Island. It was dismantled and re-built at the present location under the supervision of HRH Prince Narissaranuwaddhiwongse.

The three-storey Vimanmek Mansion is the largest golden teak building in the world, built in an architectural style that reflects European influences. There are two right-angled wings, each 60 metres long and 20 metres high. The section where The King resided is octagonal and has four storeys. The mansion has 81 rooms, halls and ante-chambers.

 

Following King Rama V moving to Amporn Satarn Mansion in 1906, Vimanmek Mansion was un-occupied until 1925 when King Rama VI gave permission for his wife, HRH Indharasaksaji to take up residence there. She stayed there until his death.  For the next 50 years it was used as just a storage area for the Bureau of the Royal Household until 1982 when HRH Queen Sirikit initiated its restoration as a museum to commemorate King Rama V.

 

Today, there are 31 exhibition rooms. Exhibits include a silverware room, ceramic display room, glassware and ivory display. Some of the rooms have been preserved to retain the atmosphere of the earlier era, particularly the bedrooms, bathrooms and the Audience Chamber. Other buildings in the compound also house displays of various artifacts and precious art objects.

Sampheng (Wholesale only) - Soi Sampeng (also known as Soi Wanit 1) is the most famous strips in Chinatown, and it is interesting for its present day appearance as well as its history.  While today it is a retail and wholesale area for mostly cheapish merchandise, it used to be a classic red light district of Bangkok, lined with brothels and seedy establishments.  Aside from kitchen and dining utensils of the lowest prices, goods found along Soi Sampheng are stationery, cheap toys, inexpensive clothes, textiles, fabrics, and almost anything in haberdashery, as well as Chinese religious items, much of these made of plastic and foils – in the prevailing Chinese colours of gold and red.
