Architectural Guide

Edited by Pattaranan Takkanon for the Association
of Siamese Architects under Royal Patronage

From traditional Thai temples to the high-tech buildings of the Central Business District, the architectural diversity in the City of ­Angels is ­evident to both citizens and visitors. Bangkok is one of the world’s most well-known tourist destinations. Travellers are fascinated by its art and cultural diversity, as well as its colourful street life which is linked to attractions such as dining, shopping and sightseeing. The city’s skyline is shaped by a wide range of architectural styles evident in palaces, temples, historic buildings and modern skyscrapers. In spite of the fact that these edifices represent the architecture of different eras, they coexist harmoniously and, at the same time, add spice to a visit to Bangkok. This architectural guide showcases 138 award-winning buildings selected by the Association of Siamese Architects under Royal Patronage which have been divided into five chapters. These are based on ­geographical itineraries along the Chao Phraya ­River and the main traffic roads.
