Wat Arun is considered by many as one of the most beautiful temples in Thailand. 🕌It’s almost directly opposite The Grand Palace, so it is very easy to get to. (check out my previous post for the best way! 🌊) The temple has an imposing spire over 70 metres high, beautifully decorated with tiny pieces of coloured glass and Chinese porcelain placed delicately into intricate patterns.
Wat Arun is one of Bangkok's most beautiful temples and a must visit whenever in this beautiful city.
Wat Arun is a beautiful temple on the west bank of the Chao Phraya river in and easily one of the most stunning temples in Bangkok, not only because of its riverside location but also because the design is very different from the other temples you can visit in Bangkok.
I came to Bangkok several times for various reasons and didn't go to the Temple of Zheng Wang. This time I finally got to work with my friends to come to Zhengwang Temple! Bangkok is not big, it is not small. It is not recommended to take a taxi and it is easy to catch a car. Compared with the Grand Palace, I actually like it more!

Wat Arun is a prominent Buddhist temple located along the banks of the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok Yai District. It is one of the few temples that remain from Thailand’s Chakri dynasty. The temple’s most distinctive feature is the central Khmer-style tower. Glazed porcelain tiles and seashells cover the exterior, giving the entire complex a brilliant shine, particularly in the early morning light. For many years Wat Arun housed the famous Emerald Buddha, before it was moved to Wat Phra Kaew in 1785. As one of Bangkok’s beloved temples, this is certainly an attraction visitors won’t want to miss.
