Thailand: Best spots for photography in Bangkok

Love photography and travel? Visit these stunning places in Bangkok.

From street markets and temples to river life and stunning rooftop sunsets, Bangkok has a plethora of photography spots that will take your breath away.

Here we have curated a list of our favourite photography spots in Bangkok.

  1. Lumpini Park

Gather your gear and head to Lumpini Park, which is home to duck boats, colourful Chinese pavilion set against the backdrop of towering landscapes. The green space is a haven of tranquillity and you can be here for hours on an end and still not get bored. For the perfect shot, be on the lookout for large lizards that are found sunbathing on the grass or the exterior of the lakes.

  1. DamneonSaduak Floating Market

A trip to the DamneonSaduak Floating Market will require a little effort, as it is located outside of the main city. But it will be worth it. Photograph the locals selling beautiful souvenirs, scrumptious foods and colourful flowers to the huge crowds of tourists. We recommend reaching the market before 9:30 am to get the desired shots.

  1. The Grand Palace

The city’s most famous landmark, the Grand Palace is the ultimate photography spot and the spiritual heart of Thailand. However, you will have to get creative to snap the perfect photo, as it is filled with selfie-taking tourists. Another spot in the palace worthy of your camera is Wat PhraKaew, a temple on the scenic grounds.

  1. Wat Arun

A famous symbol of Bangkok, the prang of Wat Arun is the world’s biggest prang sitting stunningly at 86 meters high. To shoot the spire, the best spot is across the river. However, you will need to cross the river via boat to take in the beautiful intricate porcelain and colourful murals of the 19th-century temple.

  1. Hua Lamphong Train Station

While the idea of photographing an old train station might not appeal to many people, we can assure you that you won’t be disappointed. If you enjoy taking portraits, you can spot a lot of people sticking their face out of the open window of the trains. Furthermore, the station itself is an architectural wonder that was built in the 1900s.
