Bangkok - Thewet & Dusit (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

This is the Thewet & Dusit chapter from Lonely Planet’s Bangkok guidebook.

Thewet has the hectic, buzzy feel often associated with Bangkok: relentless traffic, throngs of civil servants and school kids, and a soggy market. Dusit, on the other hand, is possibly Bangkok’s most orderly district, home to tree-lined avenues and regal monuments.

  • witness Victorian sense and Thai sensibilities merge in the former royal enclave of Dusit Palace Park
  • maps
  • see Thai boxing – the sport that makes Steven Seagal look as soft as a pillow – at Ratchadamnoen Stadium
  • transport
  • wander among the Carrara marble, European-style frescos and red carpets of Wat Benchamabophit
  • restaurants & bars

Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Explore: Thewet & Dusit, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife and Entertainment.
