Beautiful royal temple in the middle of Bangkok. Don’t let its name confuse you, it’s in the Bang Rai district and not close to Hua Lamphong Station!

A very nice temple in the middle of the city, just next to the entrance to MRT station. Looks like always crowded, but this part of the city os very busy all the time.

A large Watthat has some diverse structures, small temples, simple and ornate buildings. It is in a very busy area with a good street scene outside. Worth a visit if passing.

Location is a PLUS. Otherwise an average Thai temple. Worth visiting if you have never been to one. There is a charitable foundation right next door whose mission is to help the poor cope with final rites and rituals.

A friend of mine recommended this place to us. Super easy to reach here by MRT, right next to Sam Yam station. Went in the noon on a Tuesday and it was pretty crowded at the donation area. There's no minimum amount to donate, but...More

Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers
on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop
