Temple of the Dawn - Wat Arun, Bangkok: 168 reviews and 331 photos
Wat Arun or the Temple of Dawn is one of the popular and easiest to locate through the Chao Phraya River Express boat. The temple is decorated by bits of multi-colored porcelain and consists of 20 story prang or pagoda. Entrance fee: 50Baht, opens 8-5pm.
You can walk through the very steep stairs of the main prang which will give a very good view of the Chao Phraya River.
There are lots of souvenirs on the side of the main attraction. There are keychains, shirts, pens, caps, hats etc. Actually, I find the souvenirs here less cheap than those of mini stores near the Platinum Mall.
The besy way to come here is by boat, to the Tha Tien by the Chao Phraya River Express boats. You can just transfer from 1 boat to another, fare is 2Baht.
Address: Tha Tien Pier, Chao Phraya River
Directions: From this pier take a cross river ferry to Wat Arun.
