Unfortunately the Standing Buddha was undergoing renovation, therefore all we could really see was a bunch of scaffolding. There was a various assortment of other Buddhas at the wat.

It could be a beautiful site to visit, but unfortunately is undergoing restoration (March 2018). You won't see anything and will only lose the 40 THB of the entrance. Please check if the works are completed before you consider visiting the site.

This temple is home to a 40-metre tall “Standing” Buddha. I believe that it would be a magnificent site to visit, but unfortunately when we were there, the monument was all covered up in scaffolding, undergoing restoration. Should you decide to visit this place anytime...More

Terrible site. Really poor temple and budah under repair. Do not go if not in your original plans. Part of the scam it to take you to a fashion shop claiming is a special offer day.

No reason to go there as the big Buddha is under reconstruction. If you are beeing reccommended to go there by tuk tuk drivers be aware of the reconstruction.

Impressive structure, we visited early to avoid the crowds, well worth the visit, we went by tuk tuk for the emerald palace, great day sight seeing, plenty to see and ‘feel’, take some water if it’s hot. 100 bhat return to the emerald Buddha.

By far the largest and tallest Buddha I have seen first hand, its honestly very impressive in terms of its scale and size. Unfortunately it has scaffolding around it during my recent visit which took away some of the grandeur and power because you couldn't...More

We where staying at Khao San Toad and the temple was 15 minutes walk from our Hotel. There is no entrance fee, the temple is really beautiful with the tall Buddha. Nice walk, worth visiting.

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
