Do it for the ‘gram!
Apart from its incredible selection of food, and winding rows of cheap shopping options, Bangkok is also dotted with spectacular photo spots perfect for a quick OOTD (Outfit of The Day) photo op. But whether or not you’re fashion-forward and camera ready, you’re going to want to strike a pose at several of these locations – check them out!
1. Grand Palace

If you could only visit one attraction in Bangkok – it’s got to be the Grand Palace. Taking a hint from the very name of the landmark, you can already assume that it is flamboyant and elaborate to the very last detail. With intricate details and a Midas touch – every corner of the Grand Palace offers a stunning backdrop for your OOTD.
Note: Make sure to cover up before you enter the Grand Palace. If you are wearing a sleeveless top, at least bring with you a shawl or jacket. For bottoms, be sure to wear pants or a long skirt or else you will not be permitted to enter the grounds.
2. Wat Pho
Located just south of the Grand Palace, you’ll find the home of the famous Reclining Buddha. Of course, you can snap a pose right by this iconic statue, but the rest of the temple is also a sight for sore eyes! You’ll surely find yourself gravitating towards one of the intricately-tiled structures for an Instagram worthy photo!
3. Wat Arun
This temple is one that’s hard to miss. With a beautiful temple towering over the rest, it’s one attraction that’ll definitely pique your interest. If you’re hopping aboard the Chao Phraya Princess Cruise, you’ll see this gorgeous temple brightly lit from across the river.
4. SHUGAA Cafe
Kill two birds with one stone! Head on over to SHUGAA Cafe in Sukhumvit 61 to get your caffeine fix and Instagram shots in one go. Apart from mouth-watering drinks and desserts, you can find a spiraling staircase and an adorable pastel set up at SHUGAA Cafe to go with your IG-Worthy feeds!
5. Boyy & Son Cafe
One OOTD shot in Boyy & Son Cafe will have your followers thinking you’re somewhere in Los Angeles! The mid-century modern interior just screams LA – as it is a typical style you’d normally find in many of its cafes and restaurants. But interior aside, we also need to give it up for their delicious food and drink options!
6. Erawan Museum

Bangkok’s museums don’t get the same attention as its temples – and we think it’s such a shame! Most especially for museums such as the Erawan Museum which explodes with stunning interior and decor. Once you’ve stepped foot inside the grandiose location, you won’t be able to stop taking photos – so save some space on your phone!
7. Ekkamai Neighborhood
Ekkamai is one of Bangkok’s up and coming neighborhoods, so you should definitely reserve a day to explore this side of the city. Throughout the streets of Ekkamai, you’ll find many cute cafes and eyegasmic wall murals to snap a photo in front of!
8. Chang Chui Airplane Night Market
While Bangkok’s other night markets are beaming with food and shopping, Chang Chui Airplane Night Market has these plus Instagrammable photo spots to boast! This creative market is home to many local art galleries you can choose from to take your photos, plus an old retired airplane right in the middle of it all!
Artbox is a relatively new night market in the city that’s getting a lot of well-deserved recognition! Apart from the delicious food and artisanal goods you can buy throughout the market, Artbox is dotted with Instagram traps such as a ball pit and neon-lit backdrops!
10. Sanctuary of Truth in Pattaya

Just a couple of hours from Bangkok, you’ll find yourself in the beautiful city of Pattaya! Once you’re here, one temple you absolutely must visit is the Sanctuary of Truth – a temple made entirely out of wood! We can guarantee you’ll be spending 90% of your time gawking at the interior and only 10% of that time taking photos.
11. Na-Oh Bangkok

Touted as Bangkok’s most exotic spot to check out, head to Na-Oh Bangkok in Chang Chui Night Market, an abandoned plane turned restaurant! Slay your photoshoots as you capture the interior of the aircraft, perfect if you’re going for bold statement shots or mysterious dark vibes. Their 5-course and 8-course menu is nothing run-off-the-mill and in sync with this Instagrammable hotspot as well.
