Great Temples of Bangkok Thailand -2024

We had a great pleasure visiting some of the most iconic temples located in Bangkok Thailand, we had the pleasure of visiting, the following Temples below:

Grand Palace & Buildings in Bangkok Thailand: The Supreme Grand Palace’) is a complex of buildings at the heart of Bangkok, Thailand. The palace has been the official residence of the Kings of Siam (and later Thailand) since 1782. The king, his court, and his royal government were based on the grounds of the palace until 1925.

In the present time, The Royal Family resides at Chitralada Palace while The Grand Palace is used for ceremonial purposes. Located at the heart of Bangkok, Thailand, the Grand Palace was a former residence for King Rama I to King Rama V of the Rattanakosin Kingdom.

Rather than being a single structure, the Grand Palace is made up of numerous buildings, halls, pavilions set around open lawns, gardens and courtyards. Its asymmetry and eclectic styles are due to its organic development, with additions and rebuilding being made by successive reigning kings over 200 years of history.

Wat Pho in Bangkok – The Temple of the Reclining Buddha: It is on Rattanakosin Island, directly south of the Grand Palace. … Known also as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, its official name is Wat Phra Chetuphon.

Wat Pho is our absolute favorite among Bangkok’s biggest sights. In fact, the compound incorporates a host of superlatives: the city’s largest reclining Buddha, the largest collection of Buddha images in Thailand and the country’s earliest center for public education.

Wat Pho is one of the top six temples in Thailand and is famous for the huge statue of the Reclining Buddha.

By huge, we mean so big it looks like the temple was built around it because there’s really no way it could have been squeezed through the door.

Wat Pho (more fully Wat Phracheatupon Vimonmungkraram) is the “Temple of the Reclining Buddha”. It is the one of the pagodas in Thailand.

It is the largest temple in Bangkok, and home of Thailand’s largest Buddha. It is the temple where the art of Thai massage was developed.

The Golden Mount (Wat Saket) Temple Bangkok: This temple is known for the Golden Mount or Phu Khao Thong, a high hill that offers stunning views at its summit over Rattanakosin Island.

The story of the Golden Mount begins during the late 1700s and early 1800s when King Rama III decided to build a massive stupa. Unfortunately, the king’s ambitious project collapsed shortly after its construction due to the soft soil being unable to support the weight of the structure.

Visitors are required to dress appropriately. Sandals and scarves cover the shoulders are allowed. These following clothes are strictly not allowed as outer garments for both ladies and gentlemen: Short shorts, mini-skirts, short skirts, torn jeans, see through, vests, tight fitting trousers or leggings.

Tiger Park Pattaya Branch, Thailand- 2024

We are Tiger Park. a private company where different with another place, the most exciting.

attractive. We have experience width the TIGERS for 20 years. We have 4 branches and over 300 tigers are under our care.

Our goal is to ensure that all of tigers will live in the natural environments that make them feel safe. happy comfortable throughout their lives.

We hope in one day the Jungle in Thailand will be good enough for Tigers and safe for people, no hunters, TIGERS can go back in the wild. But NOW we have to help to SAVE TIGERS, SAVE NATURAL.

Is it safe to visit Tiger Park Pattaya? Yes, it is safe to visit Tiger Park Pattaya, as the tigers are well-trained and supervised by experienced trainers. Visitors are also instructed on how to interact with the tigers safely.

Tigers like most animals are afraid of fire. Big cat ‘tamers’ have used fire for generations to keep tigers at bay. They are also afraid of unfamiliar sounds and noises.

If the tiger begins to physically attack, it is unlikely to stop. Continue making as much noise as possible, and use whatever you have to shield yourself and strike back in self-defense.

Avoid playing dead; if the tiger is attacking out of an interest in eating you, it will simply proceed unencumbered.
