    Chao Phraya River
    Image Credit : ScottGregoryPhotography
    Truly, the River of Kings ­ as King Rama I named it ­ is the lifeblood of Bangkok. And not just because of this rich history. Around 50,000 people still use its ferries to get to  each day. Slow barges bearing cargo coast upstream. Kids still frolic in the russet-brown water. Wooden shacks, mottled by the elements, still lurch over the water.  

    Soaring hotels and condominiums hem in solemn temples, churches and civic buildings  
    that look 19th century European, while yards away the odd wooden sampan sells  noodle soup or dried squid to hungry river workers. It is this juxtaposition of calm and  chaotic, modern and traditional, religious and secular, ugly and sublime, foreign and  indigenous that makes the Chao Phraya so evocative. There are many ferry trips that  take you on a tour around the river.

    Timing: Varies on the plan. Usually the time is 7pm to 10pm.

  • 27Erawan 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.

    Opening Hours: 06:00 AM – 12:00 AM

    Location: In front of Grand Hyatt Erawan Hotel, corner of Ploenchit and Ratchadamri  Road
