A Do-It-Yourself Guide to the Sights of Bangkok
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
"Bangkok Essentials" combines detailed information about the most popular sights of Bangkok, along with some fascinating less well-known places, with useful facts about how to get there as well as how to get around Bangkok quickly and easily.
For any first-time visitor to Bangkok, there are certain "must see" sights that you have to visit. While "the Big Mango" is home - literally - to hundreds of museums as well as assorted palaces, temples and other tourist spots, there are three destinations that most will say you need to visit to have "done" Bangkok: The Grand Palace, Wat Po (The Temple of the Reclining Buddha) and Wat Arun (The Temple of Dawn).
In addition to the 'big three' I've also selected a dozen or so other sights - some popular, some interesting but a bit off the tourist trail - that are easily accessible using the city's train and boat system.
