I am not really impressed by Thai Buddhist temples anymore, I just saw too many. I still admire the beauty of the architecture and the colourful design, but it is not that special anymore when seeing them on a daily basis for a long time....More

We got the SkyTrain here and walked along the river. The temple is a little different to the rest with its boat shape but still commands respect. It wasn't busy so we sat and prayed for a while.

A very old temple which was formerly a stable for buffaloes, it has a new metal structure over the top protecting it. Clearly in need of a lot of renovation there is not a lot to see from the outside. A concrete Chinese style junk...More

Wat Yannawa is near the Sathorn/Central Pier and near Saphan Taksin BTS station. It has beautiful roof. The pier has good views of the river. We spent about one hour there.

This is a temple that looks like a Chinese Fishing Junk and seems to be associated with prosperity and trade.....nearby is a monument to 108 Chinese (merchants or monks) who perished at sea (storm or pirates)....it is not clear but there is a memorial.

Sathorn is Bangkok’s central business district, but
here you’ll find much more than international banks
and suited-up office workers. Take a stroll along the
small alleys between the skyscrapers and you’ll find
yourself among Bangkokians living life at a much
slower pace. Feast on fantastic Thai food which you
can find in the town-house restaurants, office food
courts and sidewalk food stalls spread all over the
