  • A beautiful marble temple located in the heart of Bangkok! Said to be built even before King Rama V but mainly developed during his reign. The iconic and must-never-miss view is the front temple view, which is also used in 5-baht-coin. There is an area inside the temple that use marble to make floor. So it is beautiful with white and clean feeling. It is easy to get here by bus, taxi or even drive here. There are around 20 parking lots free of charge.
  • This is an incredibly magnificent and beautiful temple. Definitely a place to go. A Buddhist temple that entered the list of the 10 most beautiful temples in the world. The entrance is very cheap compared to other temples. Only 50 baht. If you go early, there will be fewer people to take pictures and you will not be overwhelmed in the hot weather. You will see green buildings as you move on the opposite side of the small bridge inside. It is an area inhabited by monks. It has a very different atmosphere. you should see.
