The temple structures are amazing. The Buddha serene statues and other sculptures are worth a visit. The place is beautifully landscaped. The destination is easy to reach by cab (bolt /grab)

You have to use boat to get there. Thanks to the development of public transportations in Thailand so it's not a big deal. The temple has 4 small towers facing 4 sides and 1 main tower in the central, all of them have decorated by tiny porcelain and ceramics, very beautiful and art. You can also rent a traditional costume from the shop nearby it then take so many pictures as you can at this place.

We cruised by Wat Arun on a riverboat dinner buffet during our first night in Bangkok. The next day we visited it again and walked the complete area. It was very iconic and impressive. Probably one of the most beautiful Wats in Thailand.

One of main attractions of Bangkok, Wat Arun is a beautiful and photogenic temple, best viewed from the other side of the river, with an extremely detailed exterior and amazing architecture. One of the "must see" things in Bangkok.

Must visit attraction in Bangkok. Make sufficient time, spend atleast an hour inside the complex. Take the boat behind the Wat to explore other areas.

Fantastic temple - will get to experience the amazing architecture. Symmetrical towers built to perfection. Every angle of the Wat is a photo opportunity.

Dress conservatively as shorts, short skirts and sleeveless tops not allowed.

It was less crowded due to covid which was great as a tourist but sad for the local economy. Either way, I enjoyed being there without all the normal visitors.
