5 Beautiful Photography Places in BKK

Today, Elephant Go Go invites you to explore the more hidden areas of Bangkok beyond the usual temples, palaces and cultural performances. Many are the perfect photo backdrops for your own take of Unseen Thailand so get your cameras ready and hop on board!

Talad Noi

Talad Noi was once a bustling commercial center of Bangkok and was home to a highly diverse community. Today you can still get a glimpse of this diversity from some of the architecture and attractions that remain. You can see the Holy Rosary Church, also known as Kalawar Church, which is a Roman Catholic church built in the 1890s alongside a shrine built by the Chinese community in the area.

In 2016, a street art festival was held in Talad Noi and if you wander into the small alleyways, you can find a handful of street arts on the walls which reflect the perspectives on life in Talad Noi through the eyes of the artists.

Hours : As Talad Noi is a community, the opening and closing time varies by establishments. Visiting in the afternoon to evening is recommended.
Accessiblity : Elephant Go Go on both the Red and the Blue Routes, Wat Traimit stop   

Chalermla Park

This compact public park was once deserted but thanks to the street art festival, Chalermla park has been transformed into an outdoor museum, said to be the largest Graffiti collection in Bangkok.

Aside from having the beautiful street art as your perfect photo backdrop, Chalermla park is also a great place to take a break and enjoy some greenery in the heart of Bangkok.

Tha Maharaj

Now let’s take some of that Bangkok heat off at the hippest spot by Chao Phraya river, Tha Maharaj or Maharaj Pier.

Maharaj road was once an empty area next to the temple walls in the early Ratanakosin period.  Later, the area was developed and so was the pier of Maharaj. Today, it has become a 4 floor community mall where one can visit cafes and restaurants and savour the river view.

The highlight of Tha Maharaj is the 3rd and 4th floor which have been turned into an open area, perfect for enjoying the river breeze. The mall is uniquely decorated and offer many corners for photo taking. There is also a number of interesting programs and tours on offer, such as the river cruise and the walking tour where you can observe the locals’ ways of living.

Hours : Everyday 10:00 – 22:00

Chongnonsri Bridge

Another popular photo spot among both locals and visitors is the sky walk above Narathiwas and Sathorn intersection, also known as Chongnonsri Bridge.

The bridge interconnects the BTS (skytrain) station to the BRT (bus rapid transit) station. The unique architecture of the bridge with the blue sky and skyscrapers in the background makes it a modern and beautiful backdrop for photos.
