Wat Pho

2 Sanamchai Road, Phraborom Maha Ratchawang 10200 Thailand
65 reviews

Wat Pho is a large temple complex located close to Khao San Road. It's a great place to visit in Thailand. The complex is large and the Buddhist temple on premise has the famous "reclining Buddha" which I found a lot nicer than standing Buddha which is located at another Wat. In addition to the temple, you can also get ...

    Wat Arun

    72 reviews

    Wat Arun offers one of the most dramatic views in Bangkok. I crossed the river around sun set, and the reflecting sunlight from the tower were amazingly beautiful. It shined like gold. Wat Arun means the temple of dawn. The temple was renamed after the Indian god of dawn (Aruna) and in honour of the literal and symbolic founding of ...

    Bangkok National Museum

    8 reviews

    This museum has an incredible collection of Thai and Cambodian art. Unfortunately, the quality of the space itself isn't that great so pieces aren't displayed as attractively as they should be and there isn't as much English language educational material as there should be to attract tourists. Definitely worth a visit but best to read up ahead of time so ...

    Beautiful temples. Famous for its many bells around the temples. There's a saying that if you ring every bell there, you will be very lucky. You can also free the animals, usually fishes and birds, at the Chao Praya riverside for extra luck. Downside is the lack of parking spaces. If you want to take a car, just beware that ...

    We took two other tours of the Cambodian countryside while in Siem Reap - one on quads and one on horseback - and we loved them both. Our bike tour with Grasshopper Adventures was undoubtedly the best way to not only see the Cambodian countryside, but also to have some interaction with the people. We not only covered 30km of ...

    Baan Bat is Bangkok's Monk's bowl street. The bowls are lovely and this is a great place to watch them being made and to purchase one. Highly recommended even if you are in Bangkok for a short stay. Doesn't require much time once you are there.
