1. Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn)
Wat Arun is the top instagrammable temple of Bangkok. It is located on Thonburi side of the Chao Phraya River and it is one of the most striking riverside landmarks. Wat Arun has various cool spots for getting Instagram shots such as the main temple, the garden, and the buildings across riverside. You can climb to the top of the temple for a great vantage point of the city as it is a must-see spot in Bangkok. The best time to visit is at sunrise or sunset and the best way to get there is by taking a boat. If you want to get the photographs of Wat Arun at night time, visit any one of the restaurants across the riverside opposite to Wat Arun to get that perfect night photograph!
Address: 158 Wang Doem Road, Wat Arun, Bangkok Yai, Bangkok 10600
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.
Address: Bamrung Muang Road, Khwaeng Sao Chingcha, Khet Phra Nakhon, Bangkok 10200
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.
