Local gems among typical tourist sites make this a great riverside stroll. This is where the Grand Palace, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Wat Pho and more are located, but locals love it for more than the obvious. There are vibrant, historical commercial areas, an important university campus and early-19th-century buildings.
