Wreathed in flowers, music and the fragrant smoke of incense, this glittering Hindu temple is a landmark in the centre of the city. Built in 1956 to appease spirits during the construction of a nearby building, the Erawan shrine encloses a golden statue of the Thai representation of the Hindu god Brahma, and is visited by worshippers from across Asia who come to pay their respects.
The Jim Thompson House
At the end of an unassuming street, close in distance to Siam’s bustling shopping district, yet a world away in ambiance, a traditional teakwood house sits enveloped by verdant jungle gardens (www.jimthompsonhouse.com). The former home of Jim Thompson, an American antiques collector and merchant known for revitalising the Thai silk industry, this house perfectly showcases Thai architecture and treasures from throughout the region, and has a small outlet for Jim Thompson-branded silk luxuries – perfect for souvenirs or gifts.
Bangkok Art and Culture Center
