We visited this place on 7/2017 and it was packed with tourists. You have to be in their dress code, pants with sleeve tops or shirt, no shorts or mini dress and sleeveless is a no no. But there are available pants outside the temple...More

We went here after the grand palace and this was much nicer, less people and generally more relaxed visit. Only £2.50 to get in including free bottle of water. Really nice visit.

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

I find these places easier to navigate myself. I think you get to see more by walking and finding places you might not normally see. Might get approaches by street people for tours etc etc. More fun finding you own way... More
