This beautiful small Wat was recommended for us to visit by a kindly old man; apparently it is open only twice a month according to the lunar calendar and entrance is free. We were the only visitors and another kindly Thai man who spoke English gave us a tour of the Wat, which was still undergoing restoration works undertaken by... More

This is a Royal temple of the First order built by King Rama IV in 1864. Located at Saranron Park near the Grand Palace and Wat Pho. There are some beautiful artifacts here and also King Rama IV's ashes at the base of the main Buddha image. Murals at the divination hall depict events from King Rama IV's life. Not... More

A Royal Temple of the highest grade, Wat Rajabopitsathitmahasimaram is, for some reasons, not on the usual tourist track but as a resident of Bangkok, this is one of my preferred temples and which can be easily visited when in Wat Pho as it is nearby. The mosaic works and colors are exquisite and worth seeing. Highly recommended.

Not many tourist here, but we see many local pray here. We met a local man that willing to tell us about history of this temple and the... More

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
