Rattanakosin, Bangkok’s Old Town neighborhood, is ideally located if you have a list of landmarks and attractions you want to visit. Rattanakosin is a historical area and some of Bangkok’s most famous historical landmarks are located in this neighborhood. Home to a multitude of Buddhist temples, monuments, and museums, history lovers will be in their element in the Old City district. To mention a few: the Grand Palace, Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Pho, Sanam Luang (a historic park situated next to the Grand Palace, traditionally used for Buddhist ceremonies), the National Gallery, and Rattanakosin Exhibition Hall. This area isn’t very big, so it doesn’t offer the wide variety of accommodation options you’ll find in many other neighborhoods in Bangkok. But because it is so centrally located in the heart of the city’s most important cultural landmarks, and conveniently close to the Chao Phraya River from where you can take a ferry to move around between must-see’s and must-dos on your itinerary, this area is ideal for those who want to make the most out of sightseeing Bangkok.
