In Thailand’s capital one will see golden palaces, floating markets, and majestic porcelain-laid spires. You can take in the Pratunam and Siam Squares for some premium shopping. Afterwards you can feel free to unwind in the European-style gardens of Dusit. Thon Buri is home to the magnificent Wat Arun temple. If you venture over to Phra Nakhon, you can see the Wat Pho Temple, and the world-famous Reclining Buddha. It is with a doubt, one of Asia's most cosmopolitan cities. It boasts authentic canals, busy markets and a vibrant nightlife.
Historically, Damnoenssaduak was actually the name given to the canal that was dug in the reign of King Rama IV by the military and the people of Samutsakorn, Rajburi and Samutsongkram province’s. In those days, without canals and rivers, transportation was just about non-existent. King Rama IV had great concern for the country's future economic growth. He had the canal dug in order to connect the Taachin River in Samutsakorn Province with the Maklong River in Samutsongkram Province.
Damnoen Saduak Floating Market
On the verge of being replaced by supermarkets and shopping malls, Thailand's remaining floating markets are an enduring symbol of what life was like in days past. The very popular floating market in Ratchaburi, known as the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, is considered by many to be Thailand’s largest. Sellers arrive in boats that are laden with flowers, tropical fruits, and other fresh produce, creating a lively and vividly colourful scene that has been captured by photographers the world over. It's quite touristy, but well-worth the crowds in order to experience this unique and vibrant market. It’s most often best to make the trip early in the morning to see the market at its busiest and most colourful.
Bang Pa In
Just north situated along the banks of the Chaopraya River can be found Bang Pa In, summer palace of the Kings of Thailand. The palace can be traced back to the seventeenth century, long before Bangkok was the capitol. It has fallen into disuse for a long period. All buildings are dated from its revival by King Mongkut (Rama IV) in the 19th century. Present day, the palace is only used infrequently, and then it is mostly used for state occasions rather than as a royal summer residence.
