If you’re in Bangkok definitely go tour the Reclining Buddha! It’s a must see. You can even get water blessed by a monk outside.

Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off

Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around

What out for the tuk-tuk drivers who will tell you it is closed or opens much later. They will then try to sell you on a tour to other places. Its only about 10 minutes walking from the dock.
