like what I've said in my Erawan Shrine Pages, Indo Chinese Countries like Thailand has theravada buddhism in syncretism with Hinduism due long rule of the Angkorian empire during the dark ages which were hindu at the time and buddhism came via sri lanka only in the 11th century and it slowly became the dominant religion in the region. There are two Hindu Shrines in front of the Huge Central World in Bangkok, this is the first shrine, dedicated to the Hindu God Trimurti. is made up of the three Hindu gods Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, is the God of Love for Thais, and one of Ratchaprasong’s most powerful deities. At all hours of the day, local and foreign devotees make offerings of nine red incense sticks, fruit, red roses or red candles before praying and seeking favor.
it is just across the Big C Supercenter
Entrance is free. The exhibitions are changed regularly so there's always something new to look at. Spread over nine floors the building is spacious although when I visited there was a lot of unused exhibition space.
There are some lovely cafes and small shops selling jewellery etc that is made by local artists. I bought a fantastic pair of original silver earrings from a young designer. It is a great place to spend an hour or so, get a coffee and see some Thai art work.
Opening hours 10:00 - 21:00 (closed Monday's)

A lovely park close to our hotel and quickly became a favourite place to relax under a shady tree with a cool drink. Great place to people watch.
It's beautifully looked after by an army of friendly park keepers, lots of wildlife around, squirrels very entertaining, turtles in the lake and many unusual (for us anyway) birds.

We Tour Thailand are a fantastic local based company that we have been using on our visits to Bangkok for a few years now. Their prices are very competitive; the guides are very professional, knowledgeable and speak excellent English along with other various languages.
Every tour we have been on over the last few years has been booked before hand with We Tour Thailand. No waiting around for days before you receive a reply, it is almost instant!
They offer many services such as transfers, Bangkok walking tours, Weddings, Merit Making, join in tours, or you can plan your own with a private tour guide which we have also done and the day was a highlight of our holiday.
Our guide was so much fun & took us to places we did not even know existed all using local transport. We Tour Thailand also offer cash payment on pickup option along with the normal payment options of PayPal & Credit Cards.
We highly recommend using We Tour Thailand and for us personally we would never book with anyone else!
you can visit the website: www.booking.com to find suitable of your choice. This is reliable.
Must see Buddhist temples (made of gold / golden color) which are very beautiful. And of course, the floating market (trading takes place in boats), etc. --u can see various sites to find those that interest you.
You should get done Thai massage which is good.
I'm talking about a not-too-well-known place the locals call "pig stomach" in Thai, or what the Tourism Authority of Thailand would prefer: "The Lungs of Bangkok". Specifically, the area south of Bangkok, just across the river, called Phra Pradaeng (a district of Samut Prakan province) or Khung Bang Kachao, which is an island made up of six subdistricts. Look at Google Maps and you'll see how green the island is (yes, it is an island due to a canal that cuts through the neck of the loop in the river).
Khung Bang Kachao is a great place to cycle. During the week, you can just about have the place to yourself, as so much of the population heads across to Bangkok to work. The weekends are busier due to the floating market at Bang Namphueng.
There are many kilometers of raised concrete paths that thread through the island under the palm trees. There are a few websites that show how to ride a loop on the roads, but the best way to see and learn the most about the island in a short amount of time is to go for a guided bike tour. There are many bicycle tour companies that start in Bangkok, ride for a while to the pier at Khlong Toey, cross by long-tail boat, tour the island very quickly, then return.
There are tours, however, that start at the Bangkok Tree House (an eco-friendly resort on the island) and spend 100 percent of the time touring only the island, that are lead by locals, and are the best deal in town at 500 baht/person. The bicycles are each beautiful, one-of-a-kind creations that are designed specifically for the area. The tour groups are usually very small, so the routes are flexible, depending on riders' skills, riding speed, and interests.
In case you're wondering how I know all this, I love riding my bike around the island (my favorite place to cycle) and have met the owner of the Bangkok Tree House. Complimentary tours are included in the room rate for guests of the resort, but few people know that the tours mentioned above are available for anyone else.
This really is one of those hidden secrets.
Located opposite Wat Phra Khew , this is former Military Head Quarter of Thailand. There are hundreds of Canons kept in the courtyard and in the hall of various periods in Thai history. People say there are canons , which were used in the war of Ayutthaya! Unfortunately, we could not get down and go there to see it as we were in a group. I think, I need to take another trip to Bangkok soon just to make sure that I went to the right places!
Well this was a spur of the moment decision; we were in the Siam Discovery shopping centre & saw a wax figure of Britney Spears and the desk for buying tickets to Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum which is on the 6th floor.
I have never been to a wax museum so we thought it would be fun to have a look around. I am not sure what we paid but whatever it was it was worth it as we had so much fun in there.
Most of the wax figures are fantastic and very lifelike but there are a few that are terrible, like Julia Roberts and Angelina Jolie. You can touch the wax figures, take photos with them and some even have little props like hats, glasses, and capes etc you can put on.
We really enjoyed Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum, a fun way to spend a couple of hours
Pattaya is 147 kilometers southeast of Bangkok, and faces the Thai Gulf. While Thailand has some of the world's most beautiful beaches, Pattaya's is not amongst them but one saving grace is the Koh Larn Beaches at Koh larn Island (Coral Island), it is located about 7km off the coast of Pattaya Beach and about a 20 minute big boat ride and in the middle of a pier in the sea, you are transferred to a glassed bottomed boat and sail for another 30 minutes to the island. The Island is about 4km long and about 2km wide and has about a thousand residents most of whom live in the main village called Naban and it has two beach fronts with wide areas and fine dirty white sand (kata beach in phuket has a sugary fine sand). Activities there include para sailing, snorkeling, jet ski, banana boat and plain swimming and snorkelling as the waters are not choppy. it is usually included in a pattaya day tour out of bangkok where you can have a free time for 2 hours to do anything and lunch is at the island too.
The Siam Sub District area of Bangkok is part of the Pathumwan District and is the the shopping heart of bangkok and it rivals the nearby ratchprasong sub district (which is connected via the sky train and a long sky walk under the skytrain tracks) and it has many shopping options besides the luxe shops and chic restaurants in the area and it also houses the largest BTS Station, Siam Station. Siam Area is different from Ratchaprasong district because most of the stores in the area are more local and less expensive, which makes it a destination for Thai teenagers and middle class buyers as well as upper class Thais, particularly in the Siam Square area but also in Siam Discovery, Siam Center, Siam Paragon and at the MBK. Other attraction here include the National Stadium and Siam Ocean World.
Pathumwan District of Bangkok houses the Ratchaprasong Intersection and sub district, where most of the luxe shopping areas of Bangkok Are located, like Central World, Gaysorn, Big C, Amarin Plaza, Central Chidlom Center, Rivaled by the nearby Siam Sub District Shops like Siam Paragon and Siam Center and Siam Square and MBK but all these sub districts are part of the busy Pathumwan District of Bangkok which is the center of luxe shopping in Thailand. Other attractions here include the Erawan Shrine and the Hindu Shrines to Trimurti and Ganesha, at the front of Central World area.
