Pratunam Attractions

What to See in Pratunam

If you can find some free time in between the shopping, or need a break away for variation, Pratunam has a few highlights to include on your itinerary. Just make sure you choose a smog-free day or time in Bangkok to venture up to the 77th observation floor and 84th floor revolving, open-air viewing deck of Baiyoke Sky Hotel for mesmerizing city vistas and great photo opportunities. Also, be sure to visit an antique Thai-style house set in a beautiful garden - Suan Pakkard Palace.

Other than that, keep your eyes peeled for turn-of-the-century shophouses in some of the smaller 'sois' (alleys) - the main market itself dates back more than a hundred years - and several small shrines and spirit houses. For the superstitious Thais, it is vital to ensure that the spirits are appeased, so that trade remains brisk at any given time.
