Wat Arun - Temple Of Dawn

Wat Arun

Wat Arun is a very famous landmark in Bangkok - you can even see it on Thai bank notes.

It is a huge 70m high temple situated on the Chao Phraya River bank opposite the Grand Palace.

If you wake up early and watch it during sunrise, you will see why it is called the Temple of Dawn - there are some incredible views! It also looks great at sunset too, if you are not really a morning person!

Wat Arun is considered by many people as the most amazing temple in Thailand

It is possible to climb up to the top, however the steps are very steep and you will have a bit of difficultly with both going up and back down!

You will need around an hour to explore this temple.
