And Bangkok is home to the “Wat Pho” (Temple of the Reclining Buddha) probably build around 1788. Of course this temple is famous for the huge Reclining Buddha (sleeping Buddha) but also for its world-wide recognized massage school for Thai massage.
As part of the more modern history Jim Thomson left his house in Bangkok as a museum of Asian art the “Jim Thomson House”. He himself did mysteriously disappear in the High-lands of Malaysia but he left a re-newed world famous Thai silk industry (currently there are still Jim Thomson silk shops).

Of course this are just 3 things of the many thing to visit while in Bangkok. You could spends months in Bangkok and do every day new things!
