Walking Routes in Bangkok 5 - Rattanoskin

Route Five of the Walking Routes in Bangkok.

Stop 1: Mahakarn Fort is only one of the two original parts of the wall still standing in Bangkok and I read that it will be a National Park.

Stop 2: Loha Prasart is a fascinating building with in so much more, certainly at least half a day - it is a metal structure with a total of 37 spires - nickname - the 'metal castle'

Stop 3: The Giant Swing is certainly an interesting structure (built in 1784), it was originally used in an old Brahim ceremony but during the reign of Rama II the swing was damaged by lightning. 

Stop 4:  Wat Thepthidaram Worawiham is a Royal Temple built in the 1930's and is known for it's Buddhist statues - and there are a lot of them.

Stop 5: A Vishnu Temple in the middle of two roads is a special place to find.

Stop 6: Wat Suthat Theppwaram is another place which is not always on the Tour Guide - which means that it really is quite peaceful - with an Ordination Hall which is enormous, with a visit (were renovating it when I visited).

Stop 7:  A Hindu Temple (เทวสถานโบสถ์พราหมณ์) - peaceful temples but no photographs inside, worth visiting

Stop 8: Baan Mohawaan was a place where traditional Thai medicine was made in 1870 and this is now being done by their grandchildren - fascinating place to find

Stop 7:  Trok Hmoo Market - a traditional Thai market - open very early in the morning , certainly an interesting place to visit

Stop 8:  The Sam Phreang District - an interesting place to visit and the culture there is still being kept alive, worth wandering around - find the Antique Car Coffee Shop

Stop 9:  The Gateway to Old Siam - exactly that

Stop 10:  Chaopho Chinese Shrine (ศาลเจ้าพ่อเสือ) - a Chinese Shrine, very busy but no photographs inside

Stop 11:  Baan Dinso  an original two storey home
