Pratunam has a few highlights to include on your itinerary, especially if you can find some free time in between all the shopping. Just make sure you choose a smog-free day or time in Bangkok to venture up to the 77th observation floor and the 84th-floor revolving, open-air viewing deck of Baiyoke Sky Hotel for mesmerizing city vistas and great photo opportunities.

    Be sure to visit Suan Pakkard Palace, an antique Thai-style house set in a beautiful garden. Other than that, keep your eyes peeled for turn-of-the-century shophouses in some of the smaller sois (alleys) – the main market itself dates back more than a hundred years – and several small shrines and spirit houses.
