Yet another gorgeous temple visitors to Bangkok should put on your list of must see attractions. Not many people at the time we visited either. Well maintained grounds also

What means Temple. This place is much less crowded than the other Wats and you can visit this at your pace without being pushed around

We enjoyed this place the most...inexpensive to visit...great photos...water stops....respect Budha signs and do not climb on Buddhas! So many interesting tourists!

Wat suthat is less crowded than other temples in bangkok. The main hall has a big buddha surrounded by old paintings. Good place to rest and feel the calm atmosphere of a temple.

One of 3 temples visited. Still very informative with our guide Sam. Have not seen so many Buddhas in one place before. They were beautiful.

After going to ayutthaya, grand palace, wat pho. This place is similar but is also under renovation. Many Buddha statues you could probably akip this if you've visited the other temples.

The temple is under repair, but you can still see it. The Giant Swing is right next to it. The many many buddhas were interesting. A service was being held and we were invited to participatw which was so nice.

I was so very impressed by this temple and it artifacts. Truly a magical place. Time stands still and one can feel the history overwhelm ones being when you are there.

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
