For the culture seekers...

A must-see for all visitors is the Grand Palace of Bangkok. Adorned with golden roofs and colourful structures, the historical site is like no other. As Thailand's most sacred site, a strict dress code does apply. Women must be modestly dressed without bare shoulders and must wear long pants and sleeved shirts. 

Another temple for the itinerary is the riverside Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn. Sitting on the Thonburi side of the Chao Phraya River, it's a majestic sight best viewed at sunset (despite its name). Representing Mount Meru (the centre of the world in Buddhist cosmology), Wat Arun features a 79-metre tower decorated with ceramic tiles and fragments of multicoloured porcelain.
