If you start the walk from the place close to Royal Palace, you see a view like what you see in above photograph. Above photograph shows the view of Royal Palace from outside. At this hour, the Royal Palace is closed but still you can enjoy it's more interesting view in the night with such beautiful lighting all around.

The Grand Palace is made up of numerous buildings, halls, pavilions set around open lawns, gardens and courtyards. Royal Palace is divided into several sections - the Temple of the Emerald Buddha in the Outer Court, with many public buildings inside the Middle Court, including the Phra Maha Monthien Buildings, the Phra Maha Prasat Buildings and the Chakri Maha Prasat Buildings around the Inner Court and the Siwalai Gardens quarter. The Grand Palace is currently partially open to the public as a museum, but it remains a working palace, with several royal offices still situated inside it in Bangkok, Thailand.

If you look at other side of the road across Roayal Palace in Bangkok, there are more government buildings with very well lit surroundings. There are some beautiful sculptures & idols of Thai personalities. In front of some of the buildings, canons are placed. Most likely those buildings are related to Thailand defence department surrounded by few museums.

This street is very close to Khao San Road in Bangkok, which is also a good place to stay. If you are close by just talk a walk towards Royal Palace and keep walking. This space is specially decorated even better during Christmas and New Year timeframe.

Wat Pho is considered the earliest centre for public education in Thailand and the marble illustrations and inscriptions placed in the temple for public instructions has been recognised by UNESCO in its Memory of the World Programme. It houses a school of Thai medicine, and is also known as the birthplace of traditional Thai massage which is still taught and practiced at the temple. Isn't that amazing and makes this temple special in many ways. We visited lot of temples during our 10 days trip to Thailand but Wat Pho remains special because of it being much more than a temple for Thai people.

Above photograph show Wat Arun from other side of the river. It looks beautiful during night with these amazing lighting arrangements. Wat Arun is visible as you walk a little towards the rive from Wat Pho. There are various restaurants on other side of the river where you can sit and enjoy your meal by looking at this wonderful view of Wat Arun & it's well lit reflection in river water.      Related Blogpost from Thailand - Train Journey from Bangkok to Aayutthaya in Thailand  Wat Arun can be easily accessed through the Chao Phraya River and ferries travel across the river towards the Maharaj pier. For foreigners, the temple charges an entrance fee of 50 baht. And you can have such a brilliant view of the temple without paying a single Baht :).

Knowing the weather of Bangkok during the day and harsh sun, night time is great to walk around and enjoy these exceptional views of the city. Especially this road connecting Royal Palace, Wat Pho, Museums and Wat Arun is great. There is one park which comes on the way.

Bangkok is certainly a popular place for Nightlife in terms of Bars, Pubs and fancy places to enjoy hustle bustle with lot of tourists/local walking around, but something like this can be a very special experience. These walks are peaceful but you would not feel like you are the only one on the street. So we didn't felt unsafe, but it's recommended to be aware of your surroundings.    There are reasonably good footpaths on both sides of the main road in front of the Royal Palace of Bangkok, so walking around is comfortable. While roaming around these beautiful architectural marvels of Bangkok, we wished if these places would have been open during night time as well.

Overall we loved taking this night walk around Royal Palace, Was Pho, Wat Arun, Saranrom Park, Bangkok City Pillar shine and some of the other beautiful buildings well lit with colourful lights. If you are staying around or planning to visit Khao San road, we recommend taking this walk before hitting Khao San Road for enjoying some fancy cocktails & Thai beers.
