What to see in Bangkok: attractions
It is better to start your trip from the island of Rattanakosin, where you can get there from the ferry station, on the way having inspected the Temple of Dawn (Wang Doem Road).
Having reached the island, first you can go to the Temple of the Reclining Buddha with a forty-six-meter Buddha statue, covered with gold.
On the contrary - the complex of the Royal Palace with the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. Perhaps this is the most visited place in Bangkok, so the crowds here are large and permanent.
A block to the north-west (Phra Chan Alley St.) is the temple of Wat Mahathat. Nothing special about it, except that there is a large green area of Sanam Luang, where there are always a lot of people walking.
If you go south along Ratchdamnoen Nai Road, fromthe other side of the square, you can go a little way around the intersection with the Royal Palace and turn left, on Lak Muang Road. There is a small chapel of Lak Muang, with which, it is believed, the construction of the city began.
You can go further down the street, find a bridge across the canal and get to Phahuratm Road - about here begins Chinatown. On this street there is the Chinese market and the Little India district.
At the end of the trip, you can go to the restaurant The Deck near the ferry station on Mata Rat Road and enjoy the view of the Dawn Temple or end the day at a floating restaurant.
