As the capital city of Thailand, Bangkok is the perfect city to start your travels in Thailand or elsewhere in Asia. Bangkok is mostly known for being a hudge hub but it is so much more that that, there are so many things to see and do. From beautiful temples to crazy rooftops to chaotic streets with tuk-tuks everywhere. You can not get bored with this city, so much to explore. We found you the best Instagram spots in the city, so get ready, grab you camera and your most beautiful outfit and let’s discover our 6 most Instagrammable places in Bangkok !
It might actually be our favourite temple in Bangkok. Wat Ratchanatdaram (Wat means temple in Thai), also known as Loha Prasat, is still a very peaceful temple, not many tourists go here, and it’s so beautiful. The symmetry is simply mindblowing.
NOTE: always make sure to dress properly when you visit a temple!
A cafe with unicorns and rainbows EVERYWHERE, how crazy is this? Be prepared for a lot of coloured and sweet food. You can even rent a unicorn costume, how cute?!
A 27-meter tall red swing in the middle of Bangkok sounds cool right?! It’s not used as a swing anymore, but it makes for great pictures.
One of the most famous temples in Bangkok is Wat Pho. You might have heard of it as it is super famous for its 46 meters long reclining Buddha. Many people seem to forget to explore the rest of the temple complex, which we like even more!
Tip : go really early in the morning, you will not only avoid people, you will also catch the best light for your pictures.
Bangkok bristles with some vast skyscrapers, so it’s small wonder there are so many rooftop bars. However, few can top the Sky Bar at the Lebua Hotel, which bills itself as the world’s highest open air bar and is one of the coolest destinations in the city. Perched atop the colossal State Tower, Bangkok’s second tallest building and famed for its golden dome, you’ll gasp at sweeping views of the city through which the Chao Phraya river snakes silvered in the moonlight.
Note : It is crazy expensive there but the view really is worth it. If you do not want to spend more than 30€ for a cocktail, there are plenty other rooftops in the city, or you can just do as we did : take only one cocktail for two!
