6. Wat Saket (Temple of the Golden Mount)
During the Loy Krathong festival in the month of November, the golden chedi (mount) of the temple is draped in a red cloth as worshippers climb 300 steps to reach the top, but the temple is still a great photo opportunity at any time of year.
7. Sky Bar
You might recognise this as the place from The Hangover Part II movie – they even serve a Hangovertini. Located on the 64th floor of the State Tower, the second tallest building in Thailand, and inside the Lebua hotel, it’s no wonder it’s such a hotspot. It offers 360-degree views of the city and is known as one of the best rooftop bars in the world.
8. Sala Rattanakosin (Temple of Dawn)
Dine with a view of the Wat Arun temple by making a restaurant reservation at the Sala Rattanakosin resort, located on an island at the east side of the river. The Buddhist Temple of Dawn is one of 31,200 temples across the country and quite possibly one of the best to photograph.
9. Vertigo bar at Banyan Tree Bangkok
This restaurant isn’t just worth visiting for some great food – it boasts incredible views from up high above the city. The venue stretches far and wide and makes you feel as if you’re on top of the world, thanks to it being located on the 61st floor.
10. Chatuchak weekend market
Head here on the weekends to see the colourful stalls selling clothes, homeware, jewellery and more. But foodies will want to use it as an opportunity to take a snap of one of their delicious snacks which range from coconut ice cream to a pan of paella that’s big enough for your whole crew to share.
