My hotel was in the neighbourhood of this Wat, so I decided to visit. And I'm very glad I did. The height of the statue is impressive. Imagine the Bangkok's Reclining Buddha standing up ! The interior of the attached temple is also quite impressive....More

Quiet 'little' shrine and temple. Peaceful and relaxed courtyard with an extremely tall golden bhudda. The actual temple is quite pretty too. Dress code is fairly relaxed. Possible to walk to from Khaosan Road. If you get a tuk tuk just be careful of the...More

Angkor Wat was much larger than I expected. I covered 25k steps in 7 hours. The heat was almost unbearable. Fortunately our Tuk tuk driver had an ice chest of water bottles, an absolute must. A bit expensive at 37 US dollars. Start at 0500...More

The scale of the Buddha is incredible - no doubt about that - but I'm glad I didn't walk to it as I had planned. Instead my tuk tuk driver waited for me for about 15 mins. Lots of shrines, lots of coloured ribbons and...More

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
