1. Yaowarat road
As the first one of the most Instagrammable places in Bangkok, I have to mention the craziest and busiest street in the heart of Bangkok’s Chinatown.
Yaowarat road is so fun to visit during the day when the Chinese market is buzzing all across the narrow sidestreets of the Yaowarat road.
You can get some awesome photos with huge neon signs, tuk-tuks and just catch that bustling Chinese vibe.
And if you come after it gets dark, it’s all about street food. Get ready to eat and take pics of some of the coolest foods in Bangkok.
Best time to visit for photos: anytime during the day and nighttime (6-11 PM)

2. King Power Mahanakhon Skywalk
Epic city views and Instagram go so well together. Especially when you can walk on a see-through glass floor hundreds of meters above the ground.
If you’ve dreamed of those “on top of the skyscraper” photos but didn’t want to risk your life by standing on the edge of a rooftop, this is the perfect opportunity!
Best time to visit for photos: arrive around 3 PM and plan to stay till like 8 PM. Around 3 there are fewer people, so it’s good for daytime photos on the glass floor. More people start to arrive for sunset around 4:30 PM and then it gets crowded.
As it’s getting dark, the Bangkok skyline views from above look perfect.
3. Wat Benchamabophit (Marble Temple)
Now, this is one of the iconic ones. The Marble Temple looks magnificent in photos, but that’s not all that makes it so special.
It’s built out of white Italian Marble.
And the inside of the temple with the open square and surrounding alleyways actually reminded me of the Muslim mosques I visited in Malaysia, Turkey, and Morocco. Something about the layout felt so similar.
So I love this temple for its mixture of cultures and religions.
Best time to visit for photos: we were there in the midday (hottest time of the day) and there we almost no people around. Perfect for taking photos!
4. Wat Arun (my personal fave of all the Instagrammable places in Bangkok)
In my eyes, Wat Arun is the most magical of all the temples in Thailand. The geometric lines, these whites and the bright colors that would contrast into creating the prettiest picture anyone has ever seen. (Well, me at least!)
Best time to visit for photos: 8 AM as it opens. That’s your chance to experience the temple with the least amount of other people around. For the rest of the day, it’s going to be packed!

5. Le Meridien Bangkok
Hotels are another reason why Bangkok is an awesome place to visit. Creative designs, rooftop pools with Bangkok skyline views, endless breakfast buffets…do I even have to continue?
We’ve tested out several of Bangkok’s most stylish hotels so I’m confident to give this spot to Le Meridien Bangkok, my favorite home away from home.

Best time to visit for photos: all day and night long.
6. Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn
Another hotel gem! And this one might just be the best for Insta-pool shots!

Best time to visit for photos: around 7 - 8 AM before the crowds arrive at the pool after breakfast.
7. Unicorn Cafe Bangkok
Eating rainbow waffles and rainbow burgers while dressed in a unicorn onesie will surely be a moment to remember.
A visit to Bangkok’s Unicorn Cafe sure is fun, even if you’re not into unicorns. And the food was great too.
CLICK HERE to see our 1-minute video of what it’s like in this pink unicorn-land.
Best time to visit for photos: anytime is good! Just try to go on weekdays not the weekend to avoid waiting in line to get a table.
This is not so much as a location but a cool photo prop. At ICEdea you can find ice cream in different forms of fruits and different breeds of dogs. And also some other exciting formations.
You can find this tiny ice cream shop at the Bangkok Art and Cultural Center. It’s right in front of the National Stadium BTS (Skytrain) stop so it’s super easy to get there.
Best time to visit for photos: any time during its opening hours 11 AM - 7 PM!
9. Shanghai Mansion Bangkok
We’re returning to Bangkok’s Chinatown once again. This “old Shanghai” themed hotel is a true marvel for the Instagrammable places in Bangkok list and simply an awesome Asian vibe provider.
I had a chance to stay at their Deluxe Double room which totally felt like being in some vintage movie taking place in China. So cool!

Best time to visit for photos: all the time during your stay!
10. Tuk-Tuks across Bangkok
This is more like another photo prop suggestion. Tuk-Tuks are the most iconic symbol of Bangkok and it really looks cool in photos. It gives that special Bangkok feels.
The biggest Tuk-Tuk concentration I’ve seen is on Yaowarat Road in Chinatown and around Khao San Road.
So hail down a Tuk-Tuk, jump in, take a ride and take some cool Bangkok IG shots.
