Bangkok Tour - Amazing Attractions in Bangkok

Thailand is an amazing country to visit. However, it is its buzzing capital of Bangkok that attracts tourists and travelers from all over the world. Bangkok is the main stop in all Thailand tour packages or international tour packages that include Thailand and it's easy to see why. Filled with monuments, temples, vibrant urban culture and a nightlife that is absolutely legendary, Bangkok is one of those places you just can't get enough of. Here are some of the city's most famous attractions:

The Grand Palace:

Built in 1782, the grand palace was the royal residence for several hundred years and this palatial complex is home to a number of magnificent structures. It is also home to Wat Phra Keaw which is also called the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, since it houses a statue of Lord Buddha carved completely out of jade. The Grand Palace is one of the most important and popular tourist attractions in Bangkok, and a visit here during your Thailand tour packages is a must. The palace is still used for important ceremonies to this date.

Wat Pho:

Located right next to the Grand Palace, Wat Pho is one of the oldest and largest temples in Bangkok. Its full name is Wat Phra Chettuphon Wimon Mangkhlaram Ratchaworamahawihan, but it is also called the Temple of teh Reclining Buddha thanks to a massive 15-metre high and 43-metre long image of Buddha reclining that is covered almost entirely in gold leaf. Only the feet of teh Buddha image are covered in mother-of-pearl decorations. It makes for quite a sight to witness and is something you should especially not miss if you're in Bangkok as part of one of the international tour packages.

Wat Arun:

One of the most iconic temple sof Bangkok, Wal Arun is also called the 'Temple of Dawn'. It is located on the banks of the Chao Phraya River and is famed for its exquisite beauty at sunset. A ferry across the Chao Phraya River to the Maharaj pier gets you to Wat Arun, where you can visit its central Prang and the surrounding smaller towers, which cumber four in total. Sunset is the best time to visit to enjoy a spectacular sight of the temple and the river bathed in rich golden hues.
