Recognisable by the red swing in front of the main door, the Wat Sukhat is nit much visited by tourists and is therefore very quiet. It is a perfect place to assist Buddhist ceremonies among the locals.

This is one of my favourite places to visit and just hangout in Bangkok because of its layout and peaceful setting. However, during this trip we were not able to enjoy much of it because it was under renovation, so the THB100 is not so...More

Quiet place in the middle of Bangkok. Very nice temple, with many statues of Buddha and many historical scenes to see. Is essential to have long pants for man. Woman are ok with lenght under knees and some sarong on the shoulders.

Nice place but admission fee for foreigners increased from 20 to 100 Baht per person. Of course only foreigners are charged - even with a work permit. This was my last visit.

Banglamphu
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
