Samut Prakan is a province to the south east of Bangkok, which extends its branches to the center of the city. Apart from Bangkok airport which is located in the province, it has various attractions for all age groups including: the 3-headed elephant temple (Erawan Museum), the old town (Muang Boran), the crocodile farm and zoo, the floating market (Bang Nampeung), the seagulls beach (Bang Poo), Bangkok’s green lung (Bang Krajao) and many more places to visit.
The Flow House is located at the center of Bangkok, at the end of Sukhumvit soi 26, (almost at the corner of Rama 4), in A-Sqaure Center, which also offers many restaurants, and an IT computer, cell-phones and gadget center. Right in front of the relatively new center, you’ll find an older, smaller center, called K Villange, which is covered by another article posted on this website.
Up until recent years, the vast majority of tourists and even foreigners who live in Bangkok, didn’t know there is a big floating market, which is highly popular among Thai people, open on weekends only and located at the heart of Bangkok, in an area titled Bang Krajao, also known as Bangkok’s Green Lung.
Ko Kret is a small island in the Chaopraya River, very close to the north bounds of Bangkok. It is formally located in Pak Kret, a district of the Nonthaburi province, which borders on the northwest side of Bangkok and constitutes, along with the city itself, one giant urban sequence. The border between the two practically goes unnoticed.
The Siam Niramit Show, which takes place at the Thailand Cultural Center in the heart of Bangkok, is a spectacular show with a great production that I’d define as a ‘must see’ experience while visiting Bangkok. I’ve known Thailand for many years, through and through its many layers, and during this time, I got to visit many shows, but not Siam Niramit. I thought it was just another show, until recently, when I got to visit it with a couple of friends and realized how wrong I was. This is a marvelous, breathtaking show, and I’ve never seen anything that comes near it.
Enjoying a river cruise and dinner in Bangkok is one of the nicest experiences in the city – yet tourists usually don’t know that there are many companies which operate distinctly different cruises on different boats traveling in different routes and serving completely different target groups. There’s a big difference in terms of the boat class, the service level onboard and even the foods.
Most tourists can hardly believe it – but just a few minutes away from the center of Bangkok, a short drive from Sukhumvit and Silom skyscrapers, you’ll discover an ‘oasis’ named Bang Krajao – Bangkok’s giant green lung. The area is filled with nature, parks and orchards, lush and colorful plants of all sorts, lakes and water canals, walking trails, flowers and butterflies, singing birds and lots of peace and quiet… even a lovely, authentic floating market can be found there.
Most tourists refer to the canal tour as though there is a single route – but there are several possible paths. The main canals create a shape which resembles the number 8, with the entire right side being the Chaopraya river. Therefore, you can do the upper part of the 8-like route, the lower one, or both. After exploring the different routes, we concluded that the lower part of the ‘8’ is more interesting, although it doesn’t include the Royal Boats museum.
After trying several boats, I highly recommend the dinner cruise on a Thai boat which is designated to serve locals
Between the months of October-June, the area is filled with thousands of seagulls from different breeds, as well as many other bird types. Thus, it becomes a real treat, and particularly, a piece of heaven for bird enthusiasts.
PPT Speedway Indoor Karting , PPT Speedway is the biggest indoor karting track in the world. It’s the first track to be launched in Bangkok and the third one in Asia as a whole.
The Ancient City is the largest open air museum in the world, which spreads over some 250 acres. The park was constructed under the patronage of Lek Viriyaphant, who also came up with the idea of Erawan Museum.

I had no idea of this lovely museum until a local friend recommended visiting it. I’m happy to say I have, as the place is spectacular and extraordinary, with a unique, magical atmosphere.

Very few tourists know that Bangkok is home to a unique temple, which contains a statue of the hugely famous British soccer player – David Beckham. Even fewer know the temple’s location and how to get there.
