All reviews across the river steep steps under renovation chao phraya river grand palace tha tien pier worth the climb boat ride worth a visit entrance fee reclining buddha scaffolding wat porcelain baht climbing spire
Would recommend to visit the Wat Arun, took a boat ride to the temple from Saphan Taksin BTS station, very convenient to access, you can also rent traditional costume there, the temple is beautiful, it was a wonderful experience.
We would recommend spending at least an hour visiting the temple. Although it is known as the Temple of the Dawn, it's absolutely stunning at sunset, particularly when lit up at night. The quietest time to visit, however, is early morning, before the crowds. Given...More
One of must see sights around old town, reasonably priced fee of 50 THB, not as crowded as nearby landmarks. After renovation, climbing up is not permitted anymore, yet still this stunning structure is worth visiting and spending some time on the other side.

There are a few dinner cruises on the river and those can be great for seeing the temple at night. They vary in terms of cost and what you get for that so it's helpful to look at a few. If you can splurge, I think the best one (for the views, for the service and for the food) is Manohra Cruises with Anantara Riverside Bangkok hotel.
