Excellent place and must see for tourists.Be careful with your clothing as you would need to cover up yourself if suggested by the authorities. You would need at least couple of hours to see and spend time.

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

spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around

The best way would be to hire a local cab to get there. Read up before hand about the temple and you won't require a guide. Spend about 2 hrs. here. Entry fee is 100 bhat.
