2. The Giant Swing
Just in front of Wat Suthat, the Giant Swing standing at over 20 meters tall has become one of the symbols of Bangkok. This spindly red arch is a religious structure built in 1784 from teakwood and renovated in 2004. The Giant Swing is a little off the beaten track but well worth a visit for Instagram shots. Moreover, this place has the beautiful landscape backdrops of Bangkok Old Town.

If you are street style photographer then do not miss the opportunity to capture this place! Chinatown is local dining district that gives the authentic feel. After dark, the streets are flashing neon signs in Thai and Chinese characters and tuk-tuk lights crowding over the street, making a great photo! Since the traffic around that area is very bad, we recommend taking the MRT Underground to Hua Lamphong Station and then take a tuk-tuk.
Address: Yaowarat Road, Samphanthawong, Bangkok 10100
4. Grand Palace
Grand Palace is Bangkok’s biggest sight located at the hear of the city. This place is the most well-known for all travelers and it is top of the bucket list for first time visitors. It is a very beautiful palace with stunning statues and outstanding details. Since, Grand Palace is the busiest tourist stop. If you want to get the best shots, make sure you come early in the morning to avoid the crowds.
