Night Market
Patpong Night Market is an entertainment district in Bangkok's Bang Rak neighbourhood, Thailand, catering mainly, though not exclusively, to foreign tourists and expatriates. Patpong has long since been usurped as the 'king of the scene' by Soi Cowboy, its counterpart around Sukhumvit. Even so, its reputation means it's still a huge attraction, mainly for sightseers more interested in seeing the famous spot for themselves. Alongside the adult entertainment is a sort of night market as the whole area teems with hawkers and humble stalls selling items mostly targeted at tourists.

Bangkok Sightseeing
The dazzling, spectacular Grand Palace is undoubtedly the most famous landmark in Bangkok. It’s one must-see sight that no visit to the city would be complete without. It was built in 1782 and for 150 years the home of the Thai King, the Royal court and the administrative seat of government. The Grand Palace of Bangkok is a grand old dame indeed, that continues to have visitors in awe with its beautiful architecture and intricate detail, all of which is a proud salute to the creativity and craftsmanship of the Thai people. Within its walls were also the Thai war ministry, state departments, and even the mint. Today, the complex remains the spiritual heart of the Thai Kingdom.

Opened since 1988, Safari World is divided into 2 distinct areas. The open space of Safari Park is where you can drive through in your car or in the park bus. The open zoo is about 480 acres and the bird park 180 acres. Marine Park is more of a traditional zoo mixed with many shows, lots of food stalls and plenty of souvenir shops.

SkyWalk at King Power Mahanakhon offers an unparalleled 360-degree view of Bangkok's cityscape, this two-tiered viewpoint is perched atop King Power Mahanakhon, currently Thailand’s tallest building.

The Golden Buddha, officially titled Phra Phuttha Maha Suwana Patimakon, is a gold Maravijaya Attitude seated Buddharupa statue, with a weight of 5.5 tonnes. Sculpted in the graceful Sukhothai style, the image was 'discovered' some 60 years ago beneath a stucco/plaster exterior, when it fell from a crane while being moved within the temple compound. It's speculated that the covering was added to protect it from marauding Burmese invaders, during a siege either in the late Sukhothai period or the Ayuthaya period.
