Things To Do
Packed to the brim with delightful sights, alluring charms and a deep-rooted historical connection to the city's colorful past, Thonburi, the riverside district, is one of Bangkok's most prestigious areas.
Whilst the majority of visitors who venture this way come to see Thonburi's star-attraction, the iconic Wat Arun Temple, this ever-developing area has so much more to offer. With untouched local villages hugging the narrow waterways, fascinating museums and quaint local markets, there's plenty of interesting, off-the-beaten-path things to do and see.
