  • Very bizarre but interesting monumet. Ot is actually not that pretty but is full of history where parede and important celebration were going on there. Just in front a big temple and a "square" where ppl meet to exercise...Nice indeed!
  • It's an interesting, historical place where people in the past fought for the dream to snag a piece of gold while swinging. Not to mention that this risky endeavour claimed many of lives. Set off early in the morning for a mystical atmosphere and to avoid the crowd.
  • An interesting landmark across from the city hall. This area is filled with delicious eateries.
  • It is somewhat interesting but don't expect fireworks 5 minutes and you can tick it off from your too see list. Right by there is really nice temple worth visiting.
  • This is a very holy place, but appropriate for respectful visitors. If you do stop by, take a minute to learn a bit about the history of the Swing, and of Bangkok itself. This will greatly enhance your appreciation of the place.
