Where Is Bangkok?

As the capital and most populous city of Thailand, Bangkok sits in the Chao Phraya River Delta in Thailand’s central plain, 40 kilometers from the Gulf of Thailand. The city proper covers an area of about 1,500 square kilometres, and is the 73rd largest in the world in terms of land area. The city sprawls into the six surrounding provinces of Nonthaburi, Pathum Tani, Chachoengsao, Samut Prakun, Samut Sakhon and Nakhon Pathom. These provinces, together with Bangkok, form the greater Bangkok Metropolitan Region.

What Is Bangkok Known For?

Each area of this bustling city is different, establishing Bangkok as a mecca for exploration, which is connected together by bustling streets of human and vehicular traffic. With a flourishing culinary scene, deep-felt Buddhist spirituality and wide-ranging cultural gems, Bangkok is a city of contrasts that is just begging to be explored.

Places to See in Bangkok

  • Wat Pho: Home of the infamous Reclining Buddha, Wat Pho is an absolute must-see for anyone who lands in Bangkok. Intricately detailed and hedonistically decorated, the statue is covered in gold leaf and is as awe-inspiring up close as it is far away. Purchase coins for the 108 bowls that line the statue to provide a respectful offering, so that you come away with not just the experience of seeing one of the most iconic sights in the capital of Thailand, but also hopefully a lot of blessed luck and prosperity.
  • Grand Palace: The most famous attraction in Buddha, the Grand Palace exudes imperial magnificence. Built in 1782, the Grand Palace was the official residence of the Kings of Siam, the Royal court and the administrative seat of government. Spectate at the luxuriously and ornate architectural details and explore the birthplace of a grand and hedonistic monarchy.
  • Chatuchak Market: Any shopaholics out there? Can you stand the heat of bustling crowds and crowded spaces? Well, you can find your corner of the sky in Chatuchak Market. Offering over 8,000 stalls that occupy over 27 acres of space, Chatuchak is one of the largest markets in the world. Opening its doors to nearly 20,000 visitors a day, everything you could possibly think of is on sale here. With affordable local prices rather than hiked-up tourist costs, a trip to Chatuchak Market may not hurt your bank balance, but your arms will certainly be paining with all the treasures you’ll be lugging back home.

Popular Destinations Near Bangkok

  • Ayutthaya: Once a city of grandeur and prosperity, Ayutthaya is now a city of ruins. Despite being a grim and nostalgic reminder of its past “milk and honey” days, Ayutthaya continues to draw tourists in their hordes. With several temples and palatial ruins, the city exudes historical ruin and opulent detail in one paradoxical glorious blend.
  • Phetchaburi: Despite being a laborious two to three hour bus or train ride away from Bangkok, Phetchaburi is a sleepy yet exquisite town that is too beautiful to miss. Temples, palaces, and antique teak shophouses line the narrow shadowy lanes, while waterways provide an ambience reminiscent of Venetian gondolas. Explore the surrounding jungle-clad mountains if you wish to escape from the town. However, with the burgeoning culinary scene, golden beaches, and fascinating history, why would you?
