Bangkok - Thewet & Dusit (Chapter)
This is the Thewet & Dusit chapter from Lonely Planet's Bangkok guidebook.
Dusit has a knack for making you second-guess what city you're in with its wide boulevards, manicured parks, imposing palaces and statues dedicated to former kings. In neighbouring Thewet, the riverside setting, busy wet market and relentless traffic are classic Bangkok.
- witness Victorian sense and Thai sensibilities merge in the former royal enclave of Dusit Palace Park
- cheer on Thai boxing at Ratchadamnoen Stadium
- enjoy the breezy, tasty riverside dining at Kaloang Home Kitchen or Khinlom Chom Sa-Phan
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping, Sleeping and Sports & Activities.
