We went there when it was raining so we couldn’t really see much. There’s a huge Buddha but that’s about it.

I spent 5 minutes at the standing Buddha. It's an impressive site, to be sure. It's not as interesting or impressive as the reclining Buddha or other great attractions in Bangkok. What stuck with me was a fairly low-key site (didn't feel well-maintained) and unfortunately...More

My hotel was in the neighbourhood of this Wat, so I decided to visit. And I'm very glad I did. The height of the statue is impressive. Imagine the Bangkok's Reclining Buddha standing up ! The interior of the attached temple is also quite impressive....More

Quiet 'little' shrine and temple. Peaceful and relaxed courtyard with an extremely tall golden bhudda. The actual temple is quite pretty too. Dress code is fairly relaxed. Possible to walk to from Khaosan Road. If you get a tuk tuk just be careful of the...More

Angkor Wat was much larger than I expected. I covered 25k steps in 7 hours. The heat was almost unbearable. Fortunately our Tuk tuk driver had an ice chest of water bottles, an absolute must. A bit expensive at 37 US dollars. Start at 0500...More

The statue is definitely impressive and the Wat is good to see but it is not a must for me (the Emerald Buddha and the Reclining Buddha are ahead on the priority list). Be careful concerning transportation. We paid to see the Emerald Buddha and...More

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
