Night Walk around Bangkok Royal Palace, Wat Arun & Wat Pho in Thailand

While I am fan of Khao San Street and staying around this place, we have lot of things & hidden secrets to share about this neighbourhood. One of the great things do to around Khao San Street is to move out of the busy streets of Khao San in Bangkok and explore some of the brilliant architectural marvels of Bangkok city - Royal Palace, Wat Pho, Wat Arun & other museums & government buildings around the royal street.

Most of our nights in Bangkok were spent around Khao San Road and during one of the days, we thought of taking a night walk around the place. Since we found this one a great experience to watch Thailand Architectural marvels in night, we thought of sharing it with everyone and that too with a very well optimised itinerary to follow.

Khao San Market and Wat Arun are on opposite sides of the Chao Phraya River and that too at a reasonable distance. So we started our walk from a place from where we could see Wat Arun across the river. There are multiple cafes across the river, so if you intend to spend more time around the river and watch these magical views of Wat Arun, there are multiple cafes with terrace. We grabbed some drinks from a street-side kiosk and walked across the river for some time and then started walking towards Museum Siam.

Beyond Wat Pho, it was time to walk towards Saranrom Park. As we entered into the park, there were not many people and that scared us a little. So we didn't spend time inside the park. While you are walking in this part of Bangkok and you need a loo break, Saranrom Park has that provision till late night as all other places are completely closed after sunset.
