Bangkok is mostly Buddhist and there are many traditional customs that you need to be aware of. Dressing appropriately when visiting temples is incredibly important. Shoulders need to be covered and so do your knees for both men and women. Sometimes a scarf covering your shoulders isn’t enough so always have appropriate clothes ready in your day pack.
