Impressive buildings and statues. Especially of course the gigantic Buddah. Something one must at least have seen if you stay in Bangkok.

the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and

this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off

Better to schedule before you get there. Some are flexible with timings. I read a lot and enjoyed the experience on my own. Also the driver I hired for the day was well versed with local sights.
