    There are so many great places to photograph in Bangkok! For that old Thailand feel, here are some that you should check out:

    There will be tourists there, but there's never been a point where I visited where it was full of people. The only time I can think of where there'd be a ton of people is if there was a holiday.

    These aren't old school, but I thought I'd throw it out there anyway -- the Chao Phraya River is gorgeous at sunrise and sunset. It runs through Bangkok, so you can catch it near the temples. The Sky Bar is also amazing. It's at the top of a nice hotel and you have to get up there before sunset to catch the sun going down! One of my favorite photography spots in Bangkok.

    All the places suggested above are located in Bangkok's Old City. You will be able to see old Thai-style architecture by just walking around the area. I have a couple of places I would like to suggest, places I think wouldn't really turn up in the usual recommendation. See if you like it:

    1. Wat Bowon Niwet (Wat Bowonniwet Vihara Rajavaravihara) - I believe it serves as residence of some of our Kings when they became monks. Therefore, the temple is well preserved and has a special section for royal family. It is not a popular tourist destination, so it would give you just the authenticity you desired.


    2. Chulalongkorn University - One of the top University in Thailand situated right in the middle of Bangkok next to Siam shopping area, but it is filled with large trees and traditional buildings. It's like an oasis in the city.


    3. Vimanmek Mansion - built in 1890s by King Rama V, this mansion is supposedly the largest golden teak-wood mansion in the world. Really pretty!


    4. M.R. Kukrit's Heritage Home - This is where you will find the traditional Thai house from the central region.


    Google will turn up results for any of these key word searches. ENJOY!!

    Try Bangkok's Pak Khlong Talat Flower Market. I also suggest riding the river ferry that runs through town to temples that are more on the outskirts of the city. There are also some nice outdoor markets that are more traditional and less touristy that you can get to with the ferry.

    Ayutthaya is not too far from Bangkok if you are looking for a more historic setting.
