Not located in the quietest area but you will quickly forget about the noise when you enter this beautiful temple with a huge statue of Bouddha as per tradition and many other little ones around it. The decorations all around the temple are simply stunning!!

The beautiful temples and buildings that make up this complex attract many visitors and local Thai as well, who come to pray and make offerings. There is a very quiet and traditional neighborhood just to the west as you head towards the river, which is...More

Went on the last day of Songkran festival, so got to see the temple in full use. Incredible artwork and architecture- worth a visit if you're nearby.

Saw where the monks live. Their sleeping quarters Showers. Where they eat and pray. Construction allowed us to wander through areas not usually open. Interesting

Stunning little Wat, saw it whilst having a coffee in Starbucks. Wandered across and were really lucky to witness a large amount of monks celebrating a five year anniversary of something. Unfortunately because of language barrier couldn't get anymore info. I managed some great photos...More

It's not the largest or flashiest temple, but it is a beautiful, calm, peaceful respite in the heart of the city. The main temple is very pleasing, and there is a side temple with a large collection of buddhas where people seek their fortunes. Bermuda...More

Very nice and quiet peaceful temple. People there are very friendly and helpful. A really nice guy there took me and my wife around and showed us different parts of the temple. Didn't ask for money at all, he just seemed proud of the place...More

This temple is accessible to those staying near or in Khao San Road so expect a bunch of tourists most of the time. The temple is clean and peaceful.

I had some extra time so I visited this temple. It is a very peaceful temple which basically means - no tourists running around. It would be worth taking the time if you have an extra hour.

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
