Temples and most instagrammable buildings in Bangkok

Bangkok is home to hundreds of photogenic temples and buildings. These are some of my favorites

wat arun

One of the most impressive temples in Thailand, Wat Arun stands out for its strikingly different design from other temples in Bangkok.

Situated on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, the temple is a grand and amazing sight that you and your Instagram followers will love.

As the sun sets over the city, Wat Arun illuminates like a glittering tower of gold against the night sky..

Whether you capture its beauty from across the river, or go up to the top and take some close-ups and shots of the view, Wat Arun is one of the best views in Bangkok and a perfect backdrop for your Bangkok photos. .


wat pho

Also known as 'Temple of the Reclining Buddha', Wat Pho is a beautiful temple complex that is home to one of the city's most famous attractions: a 46-meter-long statue of Buddha.

The statue shows the Buddha in a relaxed, reclining position, and is completely covered in gold leaf!

The rest of the temple is equally magnificent; ornately patterned ceilings arch over intricate interiors, and lush shoots of greenery dot the colorful courtyards.

I recommend that you take an iconic photo between the needles.

Wat Pho is quite crowded during the day, so if you want to get some cool photos with the reclining Buddha, you should try to get here first thing in the morning.

However, we visited in the early afternoon and were able to find quiet corners among the courtyard's spires, although other places were more crowded.

In addition to the great photo opportunities, it's a must-see in Thailand, even if you only spend 24 hours in Bangkok.

wat benchamabophit

Built with marble imported from Italy, Wat Benchamabophit is also known as 'the Marble Temple'. I think it is one of the most beautiful temples in the city, and one of the best places to see in Bangkok.

It boasts a photogenic symmetry that will stop those who scroll through Instagram

The light-colored marble is adorned with splashes of red and gold, while the structure is made up of balanced curves and angles that the eye cannot help but find pleasing.

Take a strikingly symmetrical photo from the front of the inner courtyard, or capture the temple glowing in the soft light of the golden hour.

Bonus points if you frame it with the arch of the door frame, after all you want to get a little creative with your Instagram photos


Wat Ratchanatdaram

The temple grounds of Wat Ratchanatdaram are best known for the glittering structure at its center: Loha Prasat.

This stepped building is known as the "Metal Castle" because of its unique appearance and because it is the only existing building with all-bronze roof tiles.

Protruding from the tiled roof are 37 glittering gold-plated spires that will make your photos stand out.

You can also venture up to the open top floor to capture some photos of the panoramic views.

Wat Samphran (Dragon Temple)

Located about 40 km from the city, Wat Samphran is a truly unique temple.

Known as the "Temple of the Dragon", it is an 80-meter-tall, pink-colored cylindrical building, wrapped in a huge sculpture of a dragon.

Wat Samphran Instagram Bangkok

The brightly colored dragon is quite the impressive sight and makes for a top-notch Instagram photo.

Where else can you find a dragon appearing in your feed?

The temple is not particularly well-known and, for now, it is not on the tourist map, so it is likely that you will have a quiet visit.

You might even be lucky enough to get through the tunnel inside the dragon that leads to the temple.


Grand palace

The Grand Palace, a vast and impressive complex of buildings, is undoubtedly the most popular tourist attraction in the city. It is located in the heart of Bangkok and was the official residence of the king for centuries.

The buildings in the complex have more golden spires and sweeping roofs, and are decorated with ornate details.

Inside there are a large number of ancient treasures, such as the Emerald Buddha, which is the most important Buddha statue in the country.

A visit to the Grand Palace will net you some of the most iconic Instagram photos in Bangkok!

Tip – If you want to see several of Bangkok's most famous temples, it's a good idea book a guided tour of the temples.

This way, you can check off a few at once and learn a lot along the way. Plus, you'll have people around to take a few photos!

Ancient City (Mueang Boran)

Mueang Boran, or Ancient City, is the largest open-air museum in the world.

It is a park that takes the shape of Thailand and contains replicas of some of the most famous temples and monuments in the country.

Some of the buildings are life-size, but most are reduced, which makes for interesting photos

The buildings are laid out in the park in the shape of Thailand to match their geographically correct positions.

It's a great place to photograph some of the country's best architectural wonders and temples without straying too far from its capital.

The Most Instagram-Worthy Markets and Streets in Bangkok

Thailand is famous for its amazing markets, thanks to its top-quality food and great atmosphere. Plus, they make for some amazing Instagram photos too!

rail market

The Maeklong Railway Market in Bangkok is certainly unique and stands out from the other markets in the city. The market is situated on either side of an active railway line, and trains run right through the middle several times a day!

Vendors rush to fold up their awnings as the trains approach.

The train barely passes the stalls, making for a really cool and unexpected Instagram video or boomerang. While you're there, you can pick up some unique local delicacies or fresh produce at the stalls.

Booking this guided market tour from Bangkok is a great way to see the Railway Market and the floating market in one comprehensive trip.

Floating Market

The Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is the most popular of its kind in all of Thailand. It is a food market located on the Damnoen Saduak canal and is made up of a large number of stalls and floating kitchens.

The market features some of the world's most exciting and iconic photo opportunities, with vibrantly colored wares piled high on the boats lining the canal.

If you want to take photos from one of the wooden boats, I recommend that you go early in the morning, as late in the day it can be very crowded and there can be real boat jams along the canals.

Located about 100 km from Bangkok, getting to the floating market is a bit tricky. But the unique atmosphere and endless stream of amazing images are worth it.

Khao San Road Night Market

Thailand, and Bangkok in particular, is world renowned for its outstanding street food.

You can buy first-class dishes at street stalls for a real bargain

Khao San Road Market is one of the best places in Bangkok to try this famous style of food. Just as inviting as the cuisine is the lively market that surrounds it

Khao San Road is lined with restaurants, bars and stalls, with music wafting through the air.

The beautiful roadside trees are strung with colored lights, making the night market a great place for Instagram photos

Khao San Road gets very crowded at night, it is the backpacker hub of Bangkok and you will find a lot of party people.

To capture this street it would be great to use a tripod and a slow shutter speed to really capture the hustle and bustle of the street.

Ratchada Rot Fai Night Market

While Khao San Road is a road that doubles as a market, the Ratchada Rot Fai Night Market is a full-fledged market.

The narrow lanes are lined with hundreds of stalls with colorful tents, each selling their own delicious delicacies.

The nightlife is wonderful, delicious aromas fill the air, and the colorful aesthetic will make any Instagram post stand out.

Dipping into the market is a great way to find photo opportunities in Bangkok, but I also recommend heading to the mall next door for a bird's-eye view of the colorful stall shops.

You just have to go up to the third floor of the mall (you'll find it right next to the metro station) and exit to the parking area.

The view from up there with all the colorful shops glowing and the Bangkok skyline in the distance is just stunning!

Take beautiful Instagram photos with this camera kit:

You already know all the most instagrammable places in Bangkok, but how about getting those photos framed for the 'gram'?

Although most of the time it is enough to take a simple photo with the phone (especially if you have the portrait mode), there are some equipment that you can use to improve your photos.

All the items below are the exact cameras and lenses I use to take all the photos you see on my Instagram.

Nikon D3300 This is my main camera with which I take all my Instagram photos. It's a bit heavy to carry but very easy to use, and great value for money, especially if you're new to DSLRs.

You can change the objective, so when you feel the need to increase the team you won't have to change everything.

Bokeh lens f/1.8 35mm If you want to take your photography a step further, consider investing in a 35mm f/1.8 lens.

This lens will allow you to create a beautiful blurred background effect, known as "bokeh."
