1. Wat Samphran (Dragon Temple)
Located around 40km outside of Bangkok, Wat Samphran is a truly unique temple. Known as ‘Dragon Temple’, it’s an 80-meter tall, pink, cylindrical building wrapped by an enormous dragon sculpture. The brightly colored dragon is impressive and makes for a top-notch Instagram picture.
The temple is not actually that well known, and for now, isn’t on the tourist map, so you’re likely to have a peaceful visit! You can even walk through the tunnel inside the dragon that leads up to the temple.
2. Railway Market
Bangkok’s Maeklong Railway Market is certainly unique and stands out from the other markets in the city as it’s set inside an active train track, and trains pass right through the middle of it several times a day!
You’ll see the vendors scuttle to fold in their awnings as the trains make their approach.
The train only scrapes past the stalls, making for a cool and unexpected Instagram video or boomerang! While you’re there, you can pick up some unique local delicacies or fresh produce from the stalls.
3. Floating Market
Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is the most popular of its kind in all of Thailand. It’s a food market set on the Damnoen Saduak Canal and features a plethora of floating stalls and kitchens.
The market presents some of Bangkok's most interesting and iconic photo opportunities, with vibrantly colored produce stacked high in the boats that line the canal. If you want to get shots from one of the wooden boats, get there early in the morning, as later in the day, it can get very busy, and there will be traffic jams for boats!
Located about 100km outside of Bangkok, getting to the floating market is a bit of a journey. But the unique atmosphere and never-ending stream of striking visuals are well worth it!

Khao San Road gets very busy in the evenings, as it’s the backpacker hub of Bangkok, so you’ll find plenty of people partying the night away. Capture the hustle and bustle of this busy street in some cool photos!
5. Sky Bar
Perched on the 63rd floor of a 250-meter-tall building, Sky Bar is one of the highest open-air bars in the world, let alone Bangkok! With ambient lighting, elegant design, and spectacular views, Sky Bar is one of the most aesthetic places in Bangkok to sip on cocktails and get some awesome vacation snaps to remember.
You’ll have stunning panoramic views of Bangkok and the Chao Phraya River in the day and at night. Sky Bar is also the filming set of the popular movie “The Hangover,” which makes it a must-see for many movie fans!
