Vimanmek Mansion, Bangkok: 31 reviews and 42 photos

Tgis is not so much time but try this.
1 day. Grand Palace, Wat Phra Keo, National Museum. You may go there by boat or taxi
2 day. Dusit Area: Vimanmek Palace (same ticket of Grand Palace, don't throw away, Wat Bechamabobhit (Marble Temple); if you have time go to Suan Pakkard Palace (take a taxi) and Siam Square for shopping.
3 day. Golden Budda (Wat Traimit) and Chinatown.
4 day. Spend a day on the river. It's cheap and funny. Try the Chao Phraya Express River Taxi or Express Boat. You may find at Saphan Taksin (where skytrains ends) or near Royal Orchid Sheraton, in front of River Shopping Complex. Remember, some thais may tell you that this service is over or fully booked, don't trust. This a regular boat taxi service geared to Thais and there are frequent departure.
5 day. Book a tour to Ayuthaya and Bang Pa In. One trip by boat and reverse by bus or viceversa.
There are a lot of things to do in BKK, but don't miss Chatuchak week-end market (on saturday or sunday).
