Blog detail

If you’re looking to visit some beautiful attractions and capture some stunning pictures that will bring color and life to your Instagram profile, look no further than Bangkok.

These destinations are Instagrammable for a reason; they’re all exceptionally beautiful and show the Bangkok culture in all its glory! They’re not just backdrops for your pictures, they’re worthwhile experiences in themselves.

Visiting these beautiful places in Bangkok will brighten your trip to Thailand just as much as they will brighten your Instagram profile. So don’t forget to tuck your phone or camera away once you’ve captured your best shots, and experience the magic of the moment.

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 a pretty impressive sight 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 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 just scrapes past the stalls, which makes for a really 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 of a plethora of floating stalls and kitchens.

The market presents some of the most interesting and iconic photo opportunities in Bangkok, 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 of 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!

4. Khao San Road

Thailand, and Bangkok in particular, is world-renowned for its exceptional street food. You can pick up world-class dishes from roadside stalls for an absolute bargain!

Khao San Road Market is one of the best places in Bangkok to try this famed style of dining. Just as inviting as the cuisine, is the lively atmosphere that surrounds it! Khao San Road is lined with lively restaurants, bars, and stalls, with music pumping from each one. The roadside trees are strung together with colorful lights, which make the night market a great spot for some Instagram shots!

Khao San Road gets very busy in 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 panoramic views of Bangkok and the Chao Phraya River that are stunning 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! Visit at sunset and watch the sky turn pink over Bangkok, and the city skyline light up as it gets dark.
