    • 23Erawan Shrine

      Erawan Shrine in Bangkok, not entirely Buddhist pulls in a greater number of guests than a number of the city's sanctuaries. It was raised amid the mid­1950s, after the Thai government had chosen to fabricate the extravagant Erawan Hotel in this area. In any  case, the first phases of the development were plagued with such a large number of issues that superstitious workers declined to proceed unless the area spirits were  pacified. After conferences with celestial prophets, the erection of a hallowed place to respect the four ­confronted Brahma God, Than Tao Mahaprom, was thought to be a favorable arrangement. A sublime picture of the Brahma God was particularly thrown and plated, and The Erawan Hotel opened to recognitions and overall acclaim for three decades. Towards the end, the property couldn't contend with more cutting edge offices, and was replaced by the exclusive Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok in 1991. As the shrine was initially developed to match the grandeur of the old Erawan Hotel, the area came to be known as the Erawan Shrine.

      WatSuthat, better known for the towering red Giant Swing that stands at its passage, is one of the most noteworthy and remarkable temples in Bangkok. It highlights a rich  church with clearing rooftop, wonderful divider paintings and stunning hand­cut teakwood entryway panels. Standing at 21.15 meters, between WatSuthat and Bangkok City Hall, the Giant Swing's two towering red columns and intricately cut crossbar are unmistakable visible from a  far distance. The first Giant Swing, dating from 1784, was replaced in 2004 with another one created completely from brilliant teak. The development of the new swing was a  mind boggling procedure of hand­cutting, paint undercoating and covering by expert  specialists and included various gatherings from structural architects to the Forestry Department to Brahmin ministers.

The royal seal of the Kanchanapisek Year (as it was called) is used  extensively throughout the temple's elaborate decorations. The seal features two  elephants flanking a multi­tiered umbrella. The temple is actually quite large, and if you  wander around you will find some interesting older buildings.

      Tucked away just inside a canal across the river from the Grand Palace is the Royal Barge Museum. Here are displayed just eight of the over 50 barges that make up formal processions. That may seem like a lot, but during the Ayutthaya period, when the river was the main means of transport, royal barges apparently numbered in the thousands. The barges on display vary in size and function. The most important of all is the Suppanahong, or 'Golden Swan,' with its figurehead prow in the shape of a huge golden swan.

      Timings:  9:00 am to 5:00 pm every day.

      Getting There:  The best way to get to the museum is by boat. If you take the regular Express Boat service, the nearest stop is Pinklao Bridge Pier, although this involves a  long winding walk along a narrow concrete walkway over the swampy land.

    • 47Siam Square

      Siam Square, like the city in which it is located, is an area of contrast. In essence it is the hub of all things cool, an individual expression point where styles are both shaped and surface (and resurface). Siam also holds claim to being the most expensive place to rent land in Bangkok. It is to The City of Angels, what Bond Street is to London and Fifth Avenue to New York, while still possessing the innovative atmosphere of Camden Town or Soho, NYC. Siam Square itself is something of an open­air shopping complex that radiates a feeling of creativity. Recently, new malls have been taking the place of the street vendors but there are still lanes upon lanes to explore. Tribes of bright and bold slogan T­shirts meet with tailored suits and hipster fashion. Siam Square is in essence where trends both emerge and are created, an epicentre of inspiration in Bangkok.
