Route
“Yaowarat Road in Samphanthawong District is the main artery of Bangkok's Chinatown. Modern Chinatown now covers a large area around Yaowarat and Charoen Krung Road. It has been the main centre for trading by the Chinese community since they moved from their old site some 200 years ago to make way for the construction of Wat Phra Kaew, the Grand Palace. Nearby is the Phahurat or Indian market. The area is bordered by the Chao Phraya River to the south. Yaowarat Road is well known for its variety of foodstuffs, and at night turns into a large "food street" that draws tourists and locals from all over the city.”

Buddhist Temple
““This place has amazing views all over Bangkok, lovely temple really enjoyed our visit here. Would recommend going at sunset for an even better view.” --- Tourist's feedback. Wat Saket ‘The temple of the Golden Mount’, which is located outside the old Rattanakosin island area of Bangkok, is one of the city’s oldest temples. The structure of Wat Saket is distinct because of the 80-meter high mountain, called Phu Khao Thong (meaning Golden Mountain), where the temple’s main gilded chedi (or stupa) rests. This ‘mountain’, formed from the debris of a collapsed chedi commissioned to be built by King Rama III, was once the highest point in all of Bangkok. The Golden Mountain is a well-known and much revered landmark in Bangkok. A climb to the top of the mount is a journey of more than 300 steps.”

History Museum
“Firstly I think this place is a little bit “fancy” for a museum: beautiful, modern, with a coffee shop and a souvenir shop at 1st floor. But the more you discover this place, the more excited you are. You will know more about Thai history, Thai culture, Thai food, Thai game... a lot of “Thai” - in a beautiful, smart and modern, and, funny way ☺️”

“Brown Sugar Bangkok is a celebrated blues and jazz club featuring live music, and serving cocktails and Thai and international cuisine. Brown Sugar features live music from Tuesday to Sunday and has seen some of Thailand's most famous acts perform on its stage, including Tissue Paper and Attention Please from The Voice. Music starts from 21:00, but the bar fills up with music lovers earlier. The first set is usually acoustic, followed by something funkier and more upbeat as the night goes on. ”

“ROMANTIC DINNING The food is upscale Thai and western, think duck leg confit in a honey sauce, New Zealand tenderloin, or traditional Thai with ultra-fresh seafood. But actually, this is one place where you aren't coming mainly for the food. While there are plenty of waterfront dining options to pick from in Bangkok, this is the only one with a brightly lit golden temple right in your face. The Deck by the River as it is fully named, boasts the city's best view of its most iconic landmark, Wat Arun, or The Temple of Dawn. If you get here early, you can take in a purple and red sunset with the silhouette of the temple right in the center, and once it gets dark, the temple gets illuminated and becomes a golden beacon. Needless to say, this place is a good choice for a romantic night out.”

Mediterranean Restaurant
“In a cosy double shophouse on a quiet road that visitors don’t really frequent you will find one of the best restaurants in Bangkok. Seven Spoons is so popular that it's recently expanded, but still has the warm atmosphere and large portions of Mediterranean and vegetarian food regulars are familair with and first-timers will be excited by. It now opens for lunch and offers sandwiches alongside its hearty mains.”

“Experience the unique taste of authentic, home-cook style Thai food. Every dish by our expert chef comes with full and fresh ingredients, herbs and spices, to relish your crave for aromatic, tasty Thai recipe. Plus, it comes in friendly price. Decorated in a colorful retro style, this 60 year old traditional Thai house is the setting for one of Bangkok's hidden gems, and is an excellent spot for a romantic sunset dinner. It is tough to find and a bit far out, but well worth the effort, as Steve's Cafe and Cuisine serves up good Thai food in a great setting, right out on the Chao Phraya River in a spot well away from the crowds. The menu is Thai, and in fact "Steve" the owner is a Thai too. While the dishes are toned down for tourist palates, they are still tasty. It's a relaxed place in a quiet setting, and one of Bangkok's more enjoyable riverside spots. The fabulous views of the Rama VIII Bridge at sunset and the lovely traditional old Thai home that the restaurant is housed in also enhance the experience.”
