Thon Buri is a thrilling, ever-developing district in Bangkok that’s packed with new features and stunning historical sites you won’t want to miss. The many iconic landmarks here are easily accessible whether you’re interested in towering historic temples or serene canals. The entire neighborhood is a riverside destination, so scenic walks and waterways are common.

The things to do here are quite diverse, appealing to a wide range of travelers. Wat Arun and Wat Kalayanamit are impressive Buddhist temples, with the latter being much quieter than the former despite being home to a massive golden Buddha statue. Travelers can enjoy varied experiences such as exploring an old wooden house that puts on puppet shows and relaxing on the rooftop of the Millennium Hilton Bangkok hotel with its luxurious lounge and skyline views. Plus, this lounge has all the treats and drinks you could want.
