What to see

Magnificent beaches, a mild climate, exotic cuisine and a rich culture are the reasons why more and more tourists from Russia are choosing Thailand despite the long flight. While spending their holidays in resort towns, such as Pattaya, many tourists come to the capital for sightseeing.

Start your exploration of the city with the Royal Palace (Phrabarommaharadchavang), an 18th century monument. On the territory of the palace, which no longer serves as a royal residence, are government office buildings, the royal library and temples, including the Temple of the Emerald Buddha (Wat Phra Keo, Wat Phra Kaeo) with a 66-centimetre sculpture of Buddha carved from solid jade.

Another tourist must-see is the Mueang Boran (“Ancient City”) replica park, 30 kilometres from the city. It contains exact (and often reduced) replicas of the country’s 120 most treasured architectural monuments, both existing and lost. The most convenient way to move around the park is by bicycle or sightseeing bus.

Southeast Asia’s largest aquarium, Siam Ocean World (10,000 m2), is located on the lower floor of the Siam Paragon shopping centre. It houses over 30,000 fish and aquatic mammals. Visitors can not only look at the marine inhabitants, but also feed them, take a ride on a glass-bottom boat and have a scuba dive.

In Bangkok, there are a many rivers and canals with river trams and taxis. Experienced travellers say it’s much faster to get to business and tourist sites by water.

In addition to sightseeing and enjoying the vibrant entertainment, tourists come to Bangkok for good shopping. Local shopping centres offer plenty of stores with both world-famous and local brands at relatively low prices. In addition, at  weekends, you can go to Chatuchak, the largest market, where you can find souvenirs, inexpensive clothes and a good mood.

The capital of Thailand is known for its gastronomic delights. ans of Thai as well as Chinese and Indian cuisine flock here from all over the world. Local dishes can be enjoyed at any street cafe, but for a more exquisite experience, you should go to a restaurant. Birds’ nests, shark fins, beetles and spiders - Bangkok is an excellent place to test the strength of your nerves and your stomach.
