Temple of the Reclining Buddha (Wat Pho)


Most famous for the enormous reclining Buddha housed here, the Temple of the Reclining Buddha is also the oldest temple in Thailand and is home to the greatest number of Buddha images in the country. If you are looking for a real visual experience of Thailand while you await your onward journey, this temple is a good place to start. The temple is a short taxi ride from Hua Lamphong Train Station and if you are short on time this is the best way to get there and back. Make sure you leave plenty of time for traffic congestion.



The Grand Palace


Just a short walk from the Temple of the Reclining Buddha is The Grand Palace. This palace is no longer the royal residence and is only used for the occasional ceremony. The reverence for the monarchy in Thailand led to the royals moving out of the official residence after the mysterious death of King Rama VIII (the older brother of the current King) who was found shot dead in his room in 1946. Visitors are allowed inside the spacious European style reception room, but remember, even today this story is a completely taboo subject in Thailand.



At the Hua Lamphong Train Station


If you are short on time, or prefer not to leave the airport vicinity there is still plenty to keep you busy at Hua Lamphong Train Station. You can get a Thai massage, luxuriate in the spa or even have a round of golf at the airport hotel Novotel Suvarnabhumi, or you can indulge in some duty free shopping and then get some refreshments at one of over 50 dining venues. If sleep is the only thing you need between flights the 600 room Novotel Suvarnabhumi will be the most comfortable choice.



Banglamphu market


Bangkok is not short of markets selling everything from fresh produce to household goods, not to mention everything the backpacker could possibly need. Banglamphu Market is still mostly frequented by locals and the prices are cheaper than some of the other more touristy markets like Patpong night market. If you are looking for some cheap clothes, fabrics and textiles then Pratunam market is also a great place to visit.



As always, make sure you leave plenty of time to get back to Hua Lamphong Train Station in time for your connecting flight. Enjoy your transit city rather than whiling away the time leaning up against your luggage in the departures lounge.
