The statue is definitely impressive and the Wat is good to see but it is not a must for me (the Emerald Buddha and the Reclining Buddha are ahead on the priority list). Be careful concerning transportation. We paid to see the Emerald Buddha and...More

A wonderful wat just north of Khao San road. The standing Buddha is of course the highlight, and the rest of the grounds are lovely. No entrance fee. Check it out!

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
