1. Chao Phraya River
Flowing through Bangkok and into the Gulf of Thailand, the river sees 50,000 people take the ferry across it each day. Despite the waters being murky, you’ll find kids splashing around in the shallow waters, where there’s also potentially a brilliant snapshot of the colourful houses on stilts.
The skyscraper in the central business district of Silom is the country’s tallest, so it’s worth capturing for a cool shot. At 77 storeys and 314m high, the building, which is also known as the Pixel Tower, has an interesting shape that makes it almost look as though it’s unfinished, or like there are a few “pixels” missing from the picture.
3. Baiyoke II Tower
This was Thailand’s tallest building for 19 years before MahaNakhon was built, and still offers cool views whether you’re inside overlooking the river or staring at it. At 85 storeys and 309m high, you’re sure to get shots that will make knees everywhere a little bit wobbly.
4. 342 Bar
For those who aren’t a fan of heights, 342 Bar is a good option to capture shots of the river and skyline at a lower level. The bar juts out so you feel like you’re floating on the river while enjoying a drink. Capture colourful sunsets here to increase your Instagram likes.
5. Khao San Road
The short street in the centre of the city has plenty of photo opportunities. Both locals and tourists throng this busy area where you’ll find some of the most popular bars and clubs around. Whether it’s a drink you’re after or a good deal on souvenirs, there’s plenty to see and snap here.
