Because this temple was not absolutely packed with tourists, we were able to relax inside and have a calmer look about. Peaceful place and recommended visit.

This was an amazing place to go. It is very nice to see and you can learn about the culture here as well if you have a tour guide. We got some really nice pictures here that scream "WE ARE IN THAILAND"

This temple has some character of its own. The guides can teach you the experience of meditation and it is really a unique experience. Give it a try, especially if you have some extra time in your hands.

Wat suthat By this point in time I had been to a few wats in my quest but in Bangkok I found one that brought tears to my eyes. Wat surhat is a short walk from where I was staying and appeared in the distance as I moved closer to it like a mountain in the mist, covered in gold,... More

You have to pay to visit this temple. But apparently if you go after 5pm it is free entrance. There is almost no one visit this temple, really quiet.

Was so interesting, it may have been better to have a guide as we did not this day to understand everything, but was interesting nonetheless

Unique and beautiful, if you are in Bangkok, you should see this as part of the Thai culture. Just be aware it is a huge tourist draw, and as such has vendors everywhere around it. Lots of tour groups which can be pretty aggressive, recommend getting here early, no later than 10am. Crowds significantly seem to grow then.

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
Banglamphu
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 Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
