Bangkok Highlights
  Bangkok Travel Tip

bangkok_wat210.jpg Visiting one or more Buddhist temples is high on the list of things to see and do in Bangkok. More than 300 "wats", as they are called, are located in the city. The most elaborate wats are found on the edge of the Chao Phraya River and easily accessible via the ferry system.

Generally, the temples are simple residents for the young monks and a place for the people to meet. Most families, particularly the poor, are relieved when their young sons come of age and enter the monastery.

The Grand Palace and the National Museum are also worthy of exploring. The Grand Palace was once the home of the kings of Thailand. (Remember the movie The King and I?) The national museum is located outside the palace walls.
