Chao Phraya River and waterways is one of the most scenic areas which I visited in Bangkok. The riverside is reflecting a day and night scene which is changing constantly. There are water-taxis and also heavily laden barges which barges the chugging upstream. This is located against backdrop of the luxury hotels and the glittering temples. Areas from Phra Sumeru Fortress and Wat Arun are considered as homes to the Bangkok oldest settlements which are particularly Bankok Noi and also the charming ambience of the stilt houses in the complex waterways.
Chatuchak weekend will be a great place for you to visit which has been able to reach a landmark status as a place which must definitely be visited by the tourists. It was once popular among the traders and wholesalers only. With the sheer size and also the diverse collection of merchandise, it has been capable of bringing the seasoned shoppers frequently. This market has become a home for about eight thousand market stalls. On a normal weekend, it is getting more than 200,000 people to get the goods on offer.
If Bangkok is regarded as a city where the East is greeting the West, Khao San road can be called the scene of their collision. It is a place where people jostle for the superiority and poke each other in the eye. It has various travellers who are coming from every place in the world. It consists of sleek clubs which are playing sophisticated sounds, converted VW cocktail bars, eclectic market stalls and also the food which are tamed in order to suit the Western palate.
Soi Cowboy is also a place which you should visit. The red light district is having a more laid back and a feeling like a carnival to it than Nana Plaza or Patpong. It has a colorful streetscape with neon lights flashing to lighten up comprised of middle aged expats.
