We stopped at this Wat as part of our Co Van Kessel Bike Tour and it was one of the highlights of the tour. This Wat isn't as touristy as some of the others in Bangkok. The only people in the Wat were worshipers, no...More

Visited this Buddhist temple while exploring the ‘other’ side of the Chao Phraya River. There is a water taxi stop very close to this temple. Much of the complex is currently undergoing a large scale renovation but this does not interfere with the overall tranquility...More

The temple is located on the Thonburi Side of Bangkok, so very peaceful and almost no tourist. It was built at the peak time of trade with China, so architecture is very Chinese influenced. In the courtyard you will find many antique Chinese stone statues,...More

To get to this temple we took the Chao Praya Express boat to a dock across the river from the temple and then took another ferry just across the river. This is a very quiet, non-touristy temple and that was lovely. We sat inside the...More

I found this temple, when I was searching for Wat Arun and I am glad I have found it. It looks kind of messy from the outside, because there is probably some reconstruction and a lot of trash, but when I stepped inside... I was...More
