If you see this + Reclining Buddha + Golden Temple you pretty much have Bangkok covered templewise. I didn't find anything that spectacular about this temple. it was pretty, just not AMAZING.

When wandering around the Dusit Palace grounds, you'd
almost forget you're still in a Southeast-Asian city.

Wat Ben is open daily from 8 AM to 6 PM and the admission fee is only THB 20. You can take BTS to Phaya Thai (exit 3) then take a taxi from there, but in my opinion, the most convenient way to travel there from Sukhumvit is... More
